Ipod or DJ?

Recommended Posts

What's better having someone man an Ipod or getting a DJhuh.gif

 

I like the fact of not spending extra money if I use my ipod, but i'm not sure if people would have more fun and the party atomosphere might be better with a DJ?

 

Any ladies out there use an ipod and regretted it? or vice versa

 

Thanks!!!!

Hi jerzygirl! The party is what you make of it. I am definitely going to save some money and just use my Ipod. Make different folders on your Ipod. For example, dinner music, dancing music, etc. See if a friend or family member will be in charge of the music. If you put them in different folders though you shouldn't need much assistance on changing the songs.

I too am doing the iPod thing even if you get there and you don't like your play list you can always pick from other stuff you have in there on reserve!

I had thought about that but a friend of mine who did that said they wished they had a DJ to help out. She said everyone was playing around with it and changing it before a song would even be over. I decided to get a DJ for that reason. My friend said that she thinks a DJ will make the reception go a little smoother.

If you do the iPod, how do you announce the different events or make sure certain things get done like: the garter toss, first dance, father/daughter dance, etc...?

I had an Ipod and we purchased the portable Bose docking station. We were so happy. People did pull out their Ipods and put on songs from their lists, but everyone had a good time. Maybe we should have told one person keep an eye on it since we had our play lists and didn't really need anyone standing at it. But I am glad we didn't spend the money on a DJ but on the Docking station because I use it every day and this summer it will be next to my pool. Way more value out of it then a DJ. IMO

Our wedding is small (30). The beach house we rented has speakers around the pool area, game room, kitchen, living rooms, etc... We are hooking our laptop up to it. My fiance has some dj application with 1000s of songs. I plan on doing the folder thing for the various music during the different parts of the night. I also asked all my guests to give 2-5 songs that makes them happy or want to dance.

We are going with the DJ just so we dont have to worry about mixing the music and can enjoy the evening. We know its more expensive but we figure it will be worth it :)

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
