@snswedding2016 I only asked him once, and he said they had wraps and things like that, so it looked like they had an actual lunch. Us girls literally had a few bites, but I find women eat very little when we're getting ready. Out of all of us, I was the only one who stuffed her face with these haha. They really helped because I began getting hungry by the time the reception came around. I think also when the nerves started to come down
@perianjay the app is great and I felt like people barely noticed there wasn't a DJ. You can always go to the phone and skip that song if you feel like it's dragging a bit. The app will fade the next song in and it seems quite seamless. I had the settings at a 4 second fade in between songs and I felt that was good enough, not too abrupt.
For breaking up the songs, I actually broke up the party playlist in two, with the bouquet and garter toss in the middle. In the end this is how things went down: I forgot to throw my bouquet because I was having a blast dancing, until Brian (WC) came up and asked me if I was going to do it. All we did was put the volume of whatever song was playing a little lower, the MC announced the bouquet toss and the garter, then we put the volume up again and kept on dancing. Unless you want a very specific song to do this to, I suggest you do the same. I had specific songs for each of those two events, but honestly at that point I wanted to be over with these two things so I could keep partying haha. No one even paid attention to the song during the tosses. I'm super sick today, but I'll try to post the screen shots either tomorrow or the day after. It looked disorganized in my head, but the whole thing actually had a very nice flow to it.
@Wafflesmom it actually looks decent. I have to find a way to take it from facebook and post it on here haha. One of our guests posted it .
@acw271011 the app is actually perfect if you don't have wi fi because it plays the songs that are in your phone storage. This means you actually have to spend the time downloading them and creating playlists and then putting them in your phone. This is the most time consuming part, but hey, anything to save $2000 haha. Once the songs are organized into playlists you choose on the phone what playlist you want to play for what event and you're done! . We had free wi fi, but it wasn't perfect, it was great for sending whatsapp messages between guests. We made a group with all 30 of us and that's how we communicated, but I couldn't check my email and I doubt I would have been able to play musing from internet apps like Songza. I had to do all the work before hand. I was actually finalizing everything until the very last minute before we left haha.
