    Our wedding is at 4pm. I'm getting the steel drum band from 4-5pm. That way they'll play while walking down the aisle and for a bit of time after while we're mingling/doing pictures.

    The DJ questions are great, I was wondering the same thing myself. Hopefully someone can answer them for us!

      I asked Chandlyn if we should meet with the DJ before the wedding to go over music and she gave me a sheet to fill out that lists what songs you want for mother/son, father/daughter, etc... It also says to list your top songs and all the names of the wedding party. Chandlyn said she'll give the DJ this before your wedding so he can prepare. I think it'll work out good!

                I would bring cd's for the DJ, not an ipod. I am going to trust the DJ, and just bring the necessary songs - first dance etc. I hope he has an up to date playlist.
                During our ceremony and cocktail hour afterwards, i was thinking of useing the idop and speakers, or make my own cds for Chandlyn to play - I don;t know. So many decisions, and so little time!

                    Thanks for the sheet that is great to have. I should ask Chandlyn what would work best. I am scared to get the DJ then get out there and him not have any of the songs I want played during the reception. I could make a bunch of burnt CD's then he would have all the music but it sounds like alot of work if I am paying to have a DJ.
