    I was just wondering how those of you who used an iPod instead of a DJ made the announcement of your grand entrance, the first dance, etc. Did you just ask a friend or family member to do it?

        We didn't even do like a grand entrance or anything...Mariana set up the IPod so it was playing when all of us got to the reception area....sorry i guess that's not 2 helpful but it wasn't really important to me and then through out the night Terry and I kinda changed it to the songs that we wanted

          We rented a sound system (2 speakers) which came with a guy who set it up. He helped with running the iPOD. As far as announcements, we hired MC/Entertainment guy. It was the same guy doing other activities at the resort like tequila tasting, salsa dance lessons, etc. but he was great! Really funny and got the crowd going. After announcing Mr. and Mrs... and the first dance he left. He came back after the dinner was finished and continued. We had this Tequila song playing every 10-15 min during which everyone had to do a tequila shot. He helped to coordinate that as well. The fee was $80.00. Well worth it.

            My hubby was in charge of the ipod. We didn't do any sort of grand entrance since our ceremony was followed by a cocktail hour & then the sit down reception - we were just hanging with our guests anyway, aside from about 30 minutes away for pics. If you have a larger group & want announcements & stuff, I would def put a trusted friend in charge of handling the ipod/mic. Otherwise, it's super easy to just hit play & roll with it!

              OK, just for clarification, as there seems to be confusion over the whole speaker thing...we brought with us an Altec Lansing ipod player like this:
              Click the image to open in full size.
              This is all we needed (along w/the ipod) to make our music situation happen. I has great sound quality & comes with a remote which is handy. Seriously, the sound is so good and can get very loud - we had to turn it down a few times. Hope this helps

                Are you guys setting up individual folders, like "first dance" "dad/daughter" "mother/son"...knowwhatimean? So people will know what song to play.

                  Hey Lisa - we set up a pre-dinner & dinner playlist (to follow up our mariachi band for cocktail hour) and then a post-dinner playlist. Honestly, I think it would be even easier to just set up one big playlist with the chronology you would like...you can always pause or fast forward.

                    I don't think I can put my songs in the order I want. They're alpabetically by either song title, artist, etc. Is there a way on iTunes to make your own order??

                      Yep, yep Lisa! You create a new playlist & drag the songs you want into that folder - there you can arrange it an any order you like.
