    I don't know the exact name but I think it is called the portable.  I will look it up....

     

    Okay, I found it. Here is the link to the three different types that they have.  I have used the portable and it works great! It is VERY loud.

    Hope this helps.


    Ahhhhh!! THANK YOU!!

     

    I'm NOT having a DJ [I don't know how to vote on the poll....??]. My sister was married last summer, and she paid $1000 for a guy to stand next to speakers and play her iPod. She is STILL angry that she pissed away that much money. We're having a small wedding, with no dancing because I'm horrible at dancing and do not want the attention, and the iPod will do just fine. If you go to youtube and search "lounge music" or "relaxing jazz," it will give you great choices to download.

    I love the idea of allowing guest to email songs, I will be stealing this idea!

      We're having an ipod wedding as well! I have a set of portable speakers (Logitech is the brand I think). We're only having 35 guests with only 2 hours total to do any dancing, so we decided to do it ourselves rather than shell out more money for no reason! we've unfortunately had a computer crash, the one I had made my playlist on......so fingers crossed it's fixed fairly soon, or else I have to go about making the playlist again! We were going to ask people for song suggestions, but decided not to, only b/c I knew we'd get requests for the songs I definitely DO NOT want played and would feel guilty for asking for suggestions and then not playing them!

        I know this thread hasn't been active for a bit, but I wanted to let you ladies and others know that I've  been researching like crazy and tried some out in the store again with my iPod and finally settled on this one:

        http://reviews.cnet....7-34025618.html

         

        Although it was $249 at Bestbuy, I got it on eBay for just about $100 shipped! (new too!) I was looking at the Logitech, but something to keep in mind is that although it sounds good when it's plugged in, once the AC adapter is pulled out and it's running on batteries, the sound suffers significantly.  Since we're doing our reception out on the beach, we don't have a free power option. The Sony is slightly bulkier and every so slightly heavier, but the volume difference makes up for it.  I docked my iPhone in the store and played our first dance song, and stepped away to see how far I could be and still hear it clearly (with all the ambient noise) and that's what sold me.

            My Sony dock just arrived today and it sounds great! It's not too big and it's not too heavy, and the best part was that it was just around $100 shipped (less than the price of renting a sound system for three hours at the resort).  Feel free to message me any questions about it. It has a remote and an aux input so I'm planning on using a wireless mic that I have if anyone wants to do speeches.

                We are doing the ipod thing too.  Thanks for the app, I'm totally going to check it out.  I've been trying to get our guests to email us songs and have even put requests on facebook for ideas....not so much yet but hopefully will get more.  I think between this site and our friends, we'll come up with a pretty good playlist.  As for the docking, our reception will be on a boat and they are equipped with a system for the ipod.
