    What's better having someone man an Ipod or getting a DJ

    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

      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!

          Thats what we are doing too. And FI gets a Bose Sound Dock out of it so I guess he's happy.

            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...?

                For us, we only have 25-27 people so I am not too worried about that. We will just have my cousin announce all the important things

                  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 :)
