For as long as I can remember I’ve always said that as long as I have an open bar and karaoke at my wedding, I’ll be happy. Well, we got the open bar but the karaoke is a dud. We were only looking into DJ’s that offered karaoke but we ended up booking with someone who didn’t because he offered everything else we wanted. The fact that he didn’t offer karaoke was a bummer but at the time I guess I was just so excited to cross something else off the list that I didn’t even really question it.
Well, now I’m totally bummed. I’d prefer not to go back to the drawing board since we really like our DJ but I feel like I also have to have karaoke in order to be truly happy. I’m open to renting karaoke equipment and setting it up in our cocktail hour space (connected to the ballroom) for the last hour or so of the reception.
Has anyone done this? What company did you go through? I found “Nationwide Karaoke Rentals” online but I’m not sure how legit they are.

I really feel like I saw a Bee talk about having karaoke in a blog post after I recently joined weddingbee. you should do a search and see what comes up and try to message her about it.
Speaking of which, we’re going to do some karaoke-esque stuff at our reception, but it will be by “invitation only” where we get the instrumental tracks on our own and have certain people (including ourselves – along with a first dance, we’re having a first song!) perform. FI actually participates in, I kid you not, competative karaoke league and he is an all-star champ! He loves it more than he’ll ever admit 🙂

@jenter: COMPETATIVE KARAOKE?!?! That’s only like the coolest thing I’ve ever heard. Karaoke is one of my favorite things to do so I absolutely have to have it at my wedding but now I want to find out how to do it competatively!

Started by our friend, and one of FI’s groomsmen, as an expansion of his recreational sports league. FI is taking a break this ‘season’ and needless to say, I am relieved!
