    So I just came from the mac store and had a small little lesson on how to play an ipod at your reception. The guy who was helping me used it for his own reception as well. Apparantly, in itunes (the program you use with your ipod) you can choose to mix the songs into each other or put delays in between each song. He also recommended the portable speakers....Alltec Lansig. The speakers are about $240. He said he had 100 people in a big space and the sound was great. It has a remote so you can turn it down during dinner. Or you can plug the ipod into a big speaker that is provided. I asked for a microphone and speaker at the hotel but we are going to bring the portable speaker just in case the plug in doesn't work for some reason. For songs you want to make playlists...for example: Dinner playlist two hours worth of dinner music. Dancing playlist: three hours worth of songs. Maybe have your "first dance song" at the top of the list..usually at the end of dinner. You will have to appoint a MC person to be in charge of the flow..in our case our bestman who will know when to make toats ect... I hope I am not making it sound too complicated because he made it sound super easy. I am making putting the playlists together my fiance's job....playing with gadgets is perfect for him. :) HTH

          It worked out great! We set up our playlist and had a friend who was ipod savy (even though they are very easy to use) be in charge. We rented a mic and speaker for wedding and ceremony. With 70 people I was glad we had it for the service. During the reception our bestman was the mc ..he was perfect! The Dreams charges a ridiculous amount of money to rent a mic and speaker. Make sure you ask Erika how much and maybe shop around for prices. We bought a lansing speaker for our ipod just in case but we didn't end up using it so I don't know if it would have worked or not.

          Hey Girls,

          April was great enough to scan and send these 2 articles she found about how to use your Ipod to play music at your ceremony...

            When you all did your playlists, how did you figure out the time for each section of music? For example, if you planned for a one hour cocktail hour, did you have a separate playlist just for that? And did it have about an hour of music? Who are you putting in charge of switching between playlists?
            I'm just worried that when I lay out the songs for the dancing portion of the reception that they won't make sense. I know they can't be all fast dance songs, but I don't want so many slow songs that no one dances.

            lala, this was the dilemna i had...so i hired a dj...he wasn't cheap but at least i had someone to "boss" around..so when i wanted to change to dance music i just sent someone to do that...if you have someone that really enjoys playing DJ, hand him the responsibilty...i bet he/she would really enjoy helping make your day special.

              I am using an ipod too for the reception. We are only having 30 people so I figure the bose speaker should work well. Thanks for all the great tips!
