    don't let the next person walk until their song starts playing, i.e. let a song finish entirely and don't just cut it off in the middle to start the next one. if the songs are too long for that, have whoever is operating your ipod simply turn the sound all the way down gradually to sort of fade it out, then start the next song and turn the volume back up gradually.

    there are also programs you can use to cut music, fade it or whatever, but if you don't know where in the music you'll need the song to stop, that's not really useful.

      Lisa, that's a good idea! I don't want to chop off a song either but I don't want to let the whole thing play if people are going to be like, "ok, why is this taking so long!"

      These little details are annoying!

I thought that was a reasonale price. We wanted all our guest to have a good time so we didnt want to ask someone to man the ipod all night. We are still working on a play list. What I was planning on was doing a few playlist IE: Cocktail, Dinner, first dances, party tunes. on our wedding website we ask poeople to put down a few of their favorite songs so that we could add them to the palylist. I am thinking of buying a new ipod, just to keep things organized.

        We have the same - a package with 2 speakers, wireless microphone and a technician for the duration of the cremony and evening. A bit less than 400$. The technician will install the material (as well as the lights) and play the music for ceremony and afterwards.

          if you are using an apple ipod there is a program you can get off itunes, I think its called itunes dj or something like that I will look for it, but it helps you actually use your ipod like a dj and can do the fading for you
