Hi! We are getting married this Monday. We are doing the reception on the beach... no biggie, we just "bought" the iPod DJ for an hour, and we're bringing an Bose/iHome-type of device down to play our iPod playlists afterward. There is a bar on the beach w/ rope swings, and there's always Desires lounge. My group is 24 people, so I didn't want to break the bank on a DJ when some of our older crowd will likely not care whether or not "fun" music is played, and the younger guests will have just as much fun either way too since we can play our own music after the DJ packs up! I was thinking of a "technician" for the ceremony also, but I couldn't justify $180 for three or four songs worth of music... I decided to upgrade my cake instead of getting that extra hour Just decide what's important to you or if you'd rather spend that money elsewhere. My wedding planner (Yasmina) said it was fine to stay on the beach in our reception area for the full 3 hours, even though we only paid for 1 hour of DJ (can't justify paying for more, our group is small and we are all too laid back to care ) Good luck!
