I’m not having a wedding in a church, but I am doing the whole Ipod thing! When we looked around at DJs in town, we were quoted about $1500, which is crazy since our wedding budget it $10,000!! We decided that our money would be better spent elsewhere. 

 

Some people might think it’s lame, and they are entitled to their opinion, we just thought that we could have really good music without the cost of a DJ. We’re getting my cousin to man the station (for a case of beer—waayyyy cheaper than $1500!). 

 

I made 6 or 7 different playlists for the whole night, in addition to two back up playlists (one dance and one easy listening), and then a set of instructions (when to start music, when to stop, when to make announcements) for him. I think it should be pretty idiot-proof. Fingers crossed it goes well!

We are doing the Ipod thing – I’ve set up playlists for each part of the ceremony and labelled them (it’s idiot proof) – Pre ceremony is just Vitamin String Quartet playlist, seperate playlist for seating of the parents (just one song), another playlist for bridesmaids (again, just one song), another playlist for my entrance (you guessed it, just one song), playlist for the signing, playlist for ceremony exit. My MOH’s brother is going to be the one pushing play for us. Bose has a really good docking station that sounds amazing – if the church isn’t huge, it would work!
