    We haven't looked into the DJ, but I'm glad to know that the IPOD worked out for you!

Now whenever songs from our reception play on my ipod, it brings back the best memories! :)

      That's awesome that it worked out! But what if something happens with the Ipod? I was reading this post on the Marriage.com forums about it, and they just said to "Make sure you make duplicates of the same playlist on different backup ipods (friends, family) and have friends DJ throughout the night! Also, be sure to put the master playlist on a computer. Better yet, make a note of all the songs and send a copy to one of your attendants for him/her to keep– just in case! Last minute emergency solved."(http://www.marriage.com/dj-or-ipod) but none of my friends are tech people and I have no idea how much renting a stereo system would cost.

       

      Ideas?

        I definitely want to do an iPod wedding, let's hope my wonderful FI doesn't oppose to it just because of other weddings he's been to. :)

          Great thread!! I cannot justify the cost of a dj along with the outside vendor fee they charge.. I am going to rent the amp and microphone from the hotel ($250).. So really $250 for our reception music, thats music we all like, I think is quite a good deal!

            We are having a friend bring his BOSE docking station and have started created the separate playlists.  I will definitely check out the app. We tested the BOSE out and it's definitely loud enough for 25 guests.  Now I just have to think about the whole microphone/announcements/speeches issue.  Hmmm

              Hey,

               

              I'm so glad I found this thread.  We bought a portable Bose sound dock, and I'm a bit worried it won't be loud enough, or 'surround sound enough' for the reception.  I believe we'll be either outside, or will have a private room somewhere in the resort.  We have 60 guests, but don't anticipate that many will get up to dance.  Has anybody used this with success?  I"m worried that it won't sound very loud, especially with background noise.

               

              Thanks,

                Hey Ladies, For the ones that had an IPOD Wedding... Can you detail how you announced the first dance and mom/dad dances? Just curious to know how the flow of things were...

                 

                Thanks!!

                  We had someone in charge of the ipad and he announced us when the wedding coordinator told him to.  Then we just did all the special dances back to back and he announced what they were "Father and Bride" or "Mother and Groom".
