    Allie, these are awesome!  did you mold them yourself, or send out to have them done?

    I ordered them, I'm not quite that crafty!!! 

     

    I got them from here: 

    http://www.theweddingdept.com/

     

    They will be great holiday ornaments, or they can be used as a fragrance diffuser with any fragrance oil (they included a small vial of lavender/vanilla oil - I didn't even take a sniff though. I got wind chimes for our parents, (and a set for us too).

      Hi Girls, I'm trying to pick a DJ. Does anyone have recommendations? How are the ones on the approved vendor list?

       

      Thanks!

        We absolutely loved working with DJ Doremixx. We gave him a list ahead of time of the music we wanted to play during dinner then gave him a few "must-plays" and "do-not-plays" for the reception. The DJ we had (there is a team of DJs available) was incredible and kept our group of 35 dancing all night. The DJ mixed songs rather than just playing one song after another, so it had more of a dance club feel than just an iPod playing.

          We used DJ Doremixx as well, though he isnt on the approved vendors list, he is still cheaper than their approved DJs even with the $800 outside vendor fee.

           

          I have to say, I was a little disappointed with how our DJ services went. Perhaps it was because I went in to it expecting a lot after reading all the reviews, but our onsite WC even mentioned that he was not at all helpful with helping with the flow and schedule of the reception. We specifically asked for Sinatra/Louis Armstrong type music during the meal and I believe they played maybe 2 songs in that genre, then random music that included Justin Beiber and radio pop music came on... ??? Our best man had to go over and ask him to play what we requested and he told the best man that he did play what we requested.

           

          I provided him with the spreadsheet of requested songs and do not plays (however a do not play "I like big butts" was played... UGH!) but it just seemed like I kept having to ask him to play things or to do specific things that were clearly outlined in the spreadsheet as to what times we wanted to do certain things. I put the schedule in his hands and the WCs hands and I was bombarded all night with questions about when we wanted to do things. It got to be quite annoying and guests even noticed that I seemed to have to run the whole reception.

           

          I think it really depends on what DJ you get from the company. We requested Ivan, the owner, thinking he would be the best, but I have noticed that several people who had great experiences had another DJ from teh same company. MsBrit, what specific DJ did you have?

          We are going the iPod route for our music. My FI is doing all sorts of research on what apps to use to transition the music, he's working on the mix of music - he's so proud of his contribution..lol Part of me would like to hire a DJ, but we just don't have the extra $$ for that.

            We are leaning towards using an iPod and one of our friend volunteered to announce us when we come in and help out here and there. Do you know what App if any that your FI found to help with transition?
