    We leave on November 30th for our wedding and I am just able to get around to doing the music now :( Feeling a little rushed to say the least!  We are putting our music onto an iPOD for the ceremony music and my sister has given me her iPOD to use, but I don't have one so have no idea how the whole playlist thing works, etc.  How should it be broken down with respect to the songs? ie. do I need 1 playlist for bridal party entrance, then 1 for bride entrance, etc. (however, they are only 1 song each)?  aahhhhh..... feeling the time pressure now!

      Who is in charge of playing the music?  It might make it easier to have those songs in their own playlist, like "ceremony songs" or "intro songs" or something.  We did use special songs when we used the ipod and just had a playlist of all the good songs called "wedding" and we skipped around as we needed or wanted.


      I would talk to the person responsible for playing the right song as the right time.  If it's your WC, she might have suggestions on what works best for her (so it doesn't get messed up).

      We were going to use our ipod and having our wedding music on that, but like you, I was confused as to how to do the playlists so they understood what to play when.  I asked our wedding coordinator how to go about it, and she said they actually prefered if you had music on a CD (2 of them, in case one doesnt work) and also on the ipod for backup.  She said the CD was much easier for the people running the music because you can clearly list what each number song is for.  I don't know if thats an option for your wedding, but it might save some troubles with the playlists.
