The Quick and Dirty: We’re doing an iPod wedding (it’s 1 / 10th the cost). Our wedding is very small (18 guests) so there aren’t a lot of spare people. We’re having no real problems decided on the music and we have iPods as well as computers and the other necessary tech. Our venue provides the patch into their system, but not a person to operate it. Which leads to the question…. How did you/do you plan to work the logistics of an iPod wedding? Who actaully hits Play/Pause/etc.? As for the reception do we just hit Play and let it go? If so does anyone know if there are pre-recorded bumpers (ex. a short ‘track’ that we could put before a song like our first dance that would announce the first dance is about to begin)?

Posting to follow! I’ve heard Bees mention an app called LimitLess which is good for crossfading songs and stuff but I don’t know anymore than that! Would love to know, as I’m iPodding it.

somersetdarling: I used LimitList for my wedding: http://www.tenkettles.com/limitlist/ and loved it. It basically turned my iPad into a photobooth and music voting station. However, if you’re having a smaller wedding it can also be used for a simiple playlist with crossfade. My husband and I have actually use it for parties too. I’m happy to answer any specific questions you or other bees have!

TOWeddingON: Awesome thank you! So you just set up a playlist and it does it all for you? As in I could hit play and then not touch it again until the end of the evening?

Yeah, it basically manages itself throughout the reception. The only time I had to make a change was to skip to the final song at the very end of the night, but that was super easy. The key for us was making a good playlist and, if you’re using the voting feature, ensuring that the flow of music is good throughout the night (i.e., that the types of songs people are voting on fit with the time of the night).
We actually just used the app again for my 30th birthday party a couple weeks ago and did a songs through the decades theme (here’s what it looks like when you are setting it up).

Hello! I would love to hear how this works. We’re getting married in Jamaica next month and do not want to pay $600 for a DJ because we only have 15 people. We are thinking about purchasing the bose sound touch system but have no idea what we’re doing. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

If you have a laptop available, there is a program called Mixxx [free to download]. You just drag & drop the music you’d like to listen to [in the order that you’d like to hear it], and press play. It’ll mesh the songs together towards the end of each one for a continual dj-like sound. You don’t need anyone to run it as long as you have enough music loaded onto it.
