Ipod Music Articles

Recommended Posts

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'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations.
