My sister rented a small amp and a microphone.  She used an input line to plug her ipod into the amp.  It was easy and less than $100 to rent it for the day.

We rented a whole set up including a sound board, speakers, automatic dance lights and a microphone.  The whole thing cost us $250 in Milwaukee, WI. 


I didn’t know anything about renting sound equiptment, so I called a few music stores and they set me up with this great sound equiptment company in my area.  They were fabulous to work with – they showed me how to hook everything up to my computer and they let us keep the equiptment from Thursday through Monday. 


I imagine you could find something like this in most other major cities … and I LOVED having an iPod wedding, we got to hear all the music we really loved and people responded well. 


One additional note: it’s good to have a friend act as ‘DJ’ and mind the music, just so things flow well and so that there aren’t any unexpected surprises from party-goers hijacking the music (although we had that and we were still surprised with the ‘Chicken Dance’ … and it was amazing)
