I personally have no idea! The closest I’ve ever gotten to a sound board is hanging out behind them with some of my highschool boyfriends who did sound for the church. (One of which I’m now marrying ). I’m leaving all of that up to him since his degree is in sound engineering. However, I’m going to email him your post and see if I can find out what he’s planning on getting for our wedding. I’ll let you know what he says. 🙂

I’m probably going to do the iPod thing…and I don’t have all of the information yet, but here’s what my DOC said:

You can rent the equipment you need. The people you rent from will know what you need. A wedding the coordinator did recently paid $150 to rent all the speakers, etc. The company they rented it from came and set everything up and taught them how to use everything. It sounds really easy. She said the key to doing an iPod wedding is really having good playlists. Figure out your music ahead of time. And have playlists all set up. The couple also made it so that certain songs were "signals" that they were 5 minutes out from cutting the cake, etc.

Hope that helps!

Oh hey! That "signal" idea is great!!! I’m definitely going to have to use that.
