@BeeG35:  I know there’s been a few girls who have done iPod receptions and they’ve gone great! I’m pretty sure that the MyWeddingDJ app controls itself. Like you set it to playlists, time it, etc, but I could be wrong. 

I do know this has been done, so don’t worry! We were planning on going this route actually, but since we eloped we didn’t need to use it.

@BeeG35:  We are hiring two (violin and guitar) acoustic musicians.  They will play the ceremony music, cocktail hour, and then we are going to move them indoors and have them play quietly (more or less back ground noise) for dinner and cake cutting.  We will be selecting certain songs for cake cutting and the like.


However…..the cost is really high.  $910 for 4.5 hours.  But I had the same thoughts as you.  I didn’t want to have guests controlling the music, and for us a DJ was just too “party-like” we wanted to keep the feel intimate.

ETA….we have a small guest list.  10 invited, plus the bride and groom.

You could do a guitarist of some sort.
