Ipod and play list is the route we're taking and our WC is providing the sound system free of charge. Since DW are not traditional we are not having a traditional reception i.e. no annoucements, father/daughter, mother/son dance, gater/bouquet toss ect. The only dance we're having is our First Dance. Everyone's vision is different so definitely to each is own! @ Mufin 1785---what DJ app did you plan on using? I love the idea of the mixing and fading...

    Ours will probably be 24 people including us 2 which I think is too small to justify paying for a DJ. I also just want only the First Dance. Hopefully, wherever we decide on, let's us rent the sound system too.

    I think we are doing the DJ which will be expensive.... I definitely agree that it is hard to justify for the small wedding, but I'm planning on only having one, so I will bite the bullet and splurge! It is something we debated, but overall I don't want to worry about the music, just want us and the guests to party carefree

      I was hoping for more guests, but it looks like my final guest count will be about 18 people (including my fiance and I). I have gone back and forth on the DJ issue so much my head hurts. I hate spending the $580 for a DJ, but it's like $300 to rent the sound system! If we have the DJ, I hope my guests get up and dance like there's 100 people there instead of just a handful

        Wow! That's not a bad price for a DJ!

        We are only having about 18 people as well and we've decided to splurge for the DJ too :)

          Great thread...I have been going over and over in my head about what to do...we love dancing but its hard to justify the cost when we are not going to have a lot of people..hmmm :)
