    We are! We’re not having a dance floor, and we love being in charge of everything (haha) so no DJ for us. It’s fun putting together playlists, too.

    We are too! We aren’t really big dancing people and our afternoon reception is only 3 hours long so we didn’t want to spend money on a DJ or band. Plus Fi wanted a new Ipod so we are able to put it on the wedding budget hehe.

    We are doing the iPod thing.  FI is very handy with iTunes and sound equipment, so we should be good.  Dancing isn’t a top priority for us, so we aren’t splurging in this area.

    wave of the future and what a cheaper alternative it is! Plus, you can have so many people “playing DJ” or just one

    We did it and used my macbook!

    Dancing was a HUGE priority for us, and I didn’t trust anyone else with our playlist! It was AMAZING and we had a packed dance floor for 4 hrs straight.

    No. I’ve been to two that had bad results and it’s not something that we are willing to risk. The ones I’ve seen, the music is great to listen to but no one danced at all. However, the weddings with djs, the dance floor was packed the entire time.

    It was great.  We used a computer as well… Just have someone manning the computer or people will attempt to change the music and will kill the mood!

    @wildstyle – that’s a great analogy. I’m terrified of clowns and DJs kinda creep me out. And now… I’m picturing a clown DJ. Hmm.

    I would have felt way too much pressure if we’d done an iPod wedding.  What worried me the most was not being able to make an adjustment if we needed to get people back on the dance floor.  In the end, we found an independent DJ who was less than half what a DJ company would cost, and I have no regrets.
