Ipod or DJ?

Recommended Posts

We are having about 213 people so I think we are going with a DJ. The place we are doing the AHR has its own sound system and lights so with that being said we are hiring the in house DJ who knows they system and the lights :)

We have been back and forth over this one too, and are now probably going with the I-Pod or the computer idea. We are curious how to fade the songs on the I-Pod though, still have to look into that. As for the speeches and announcements, we are doing what others have mentioned, just giving the job to someone to get everyones attention and announce. We think our numbers are going to be smaller anyway, so it shouldn't be too tricky hopefully! This way we save some money that can go toward other things in the budget.

We are going to have an iPod, I haven't heard great reviews from hotel allowed DJ's and I can't afford to get one and pay for their trip.

 

I have already assigned my most entertaining groomsmen to be MC and I will have another friend man the iPod which is easy because I will put together playlists. It just ensures all my songs get played and we all love the music. I've also heard a lot of the mexican DJ's don't speak great english so I'd be careful on who you hire.

 

I also have a music suggestion page on my website to get peoples suggestions on what they want to hear with a prize to the best song so that would be too difficult with a DJ

I have seen the iPod work well and I've seen it go horribly wrong, so it all depends on your game plan.

 

My MOH's wedding used an iPod that she had pre set play lists for, and she had all of the groomsmen and bridesmaids act as emcees for different parts. Her little brother was put in charge of making sure that the music was playing at all times and that the special songs were queued up correctly.

 

FI's friend's wedding used an iPod and had one of the groomsmen in charge of it. He ended up playing songs that no one wanted to hear and that no one can dance to. And then he repeated the horrible songs. In my opinion, he almost ruined the wedding.

 

If you use an iPod, just make sure you pick out what you want played and you have someone trustworthy in charge of it.

We have a friend who is a DJ so we offered to fly her down and pay for her room if she'd DJ at our wedding. I'm kind of happy to not have to worry about the playlist.

 

But I went to a destination wedding last year and they used an ipod and it was so fun! They had a great playlist so no one even noticed where the music was coming from.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
