I just found this article about using your iphone to choose music from your itunes library. Since a lot of us have iphones, I thought this was interesting and maybe a cool option for those that are not getting a DJ and thinking of going the ipod/itunes route. Also, this let’s your guests have a say in what gets played. This would require you to bring your laptop to the reception. Just a thought. I personally haven’t tried it or have a iphone, so I can’t say from personal experience that it works.
Having a party and want to let your guests (or at least your guests with iPhones with Remote installed) have a say in the music that plays? New iTunes DJ lets you do just that. If you have iTunes DJ enabled, anyone with the newest version of Remote on their iPhone can vote on songs that are coming up in your playlist, or browse through your entire collection to request a song. Whatever songs get the most votes will be played next. In iTunes, the Votes column will show the votes so if you’re at your computer you can see what’s getting voted on. It’s a neat idea in theory, but somehow I don’t think a party where everyone was dicking around with their iPhones would be all that fun a party. Who knows, I guess it’d be worth playing with to see how it turns out.
