Flow of reception/no dj

Recommended Posts

I am going to try that weddingdj app also....if I can save by cutting out the dj cost that would be great.

At the moment I dont think we will be having a dj either. I just cant justify the money on one right now. Part of the reason for us to have a DW is to make it simplistic, and since we are paying, make it something we can afford. My best friend has always said he wants to become a dj on the side. Perhaps I will try to convince him that I could be his first customer.

My sister got married last year in Mexico and she did the iPod without a DJ. As the MOH, I sort of helped moved things along (I cued up people for their speeches in between courses at dinner) and played her first dance song when ready - but it really wasn't that big of a deal. We had a great playlist so no one missed the DJ at all! 

 

The good thing is for a destination wedding your guests have all been hanging out for at least a day or two so everyone knows who people are. My sister did a reception the night before so everyone was well acquainted - not much need to do a formal announcement of the bridal party!

 

We are getting married in June in Jamaica and will do the same - iPod with no DJ! Just assign someone responsible to keep things moving in case it is needed.

If I were in this situation I would ask the wedding coordinator at the resort announce or a friend.

So what do you do for speakers and making sure people can hear the music, especially outside next to ocean?

 

And what do you do if the timing of songs don't fit the mood.

 

I would love to do it myself!

 

I just want ppl to enjoy themselves esp after traveling and all of the expenses

At my resort the DJ is $59 per hour or renting the sound system is $42/hour.

 

I guess someone could bring their IPOD speakers - not sure if the girls above did this or not.

I opted for the DJ, but will still have one of my guests be the MC.  Why? not sure, just what we chose.

We have 2 sets of iPod bos speakers we brought to cancun on the beach before...

 

 

I couldn't imagine using them for a reception, bc you can barely hear over the outside noise, wind, ocean etc.

 

We would love to dj ourselves but if the cost to rent speakers is nearly the same as a dj then.... Dj it is.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
