We’ve had a few DJ’s post on the Weddingbee boards recently, mainly with the intent of scaring brides out of doing iPod weddings.
Vendors are allowed to post on our boards, as a lot of vendors have a wealth of knowledge and are glad to share it with others. But we don’t have a lot of patience for vendors who try to scare brides out of trying something themselves.
The trend towards DIY is a lasting one, and it’s only natural that some vendors are threatened. Still, trying to scare off people from trying DIY without providing useful facts is not helping anyone.
Here are the facts:
- If it’s absolutely essential that the music go off without a hitch (and you have the budget), hiring a DJ is probably the way to go.
- If you know a lot about music and dancing and if a friend is very technically proficient, a DIY iPod wedding could work beautifully. It certainly helps the budget to diy your own music!
Like most DIY projects, it’s all about how much time you have to devote to the project. There are many posts here on the boards (and on the blog!) to help you if you decide to take the DIY music plunge!
In any case, we’ve deleted a number of recent scaremongering posts by vendors… thanks to the user who flagged them for us! 🙂 If you guys ever see something similar in the future, just flag it and we’ll definitely take a look.
