From what I hear, iPod weddings only work if you have someone doing the announcements and keeping track of the music.  We’re giving it a shot at the end of October, but we have someone who will be in charge of the sound system and making all the announcements [-cake cutting, first dance, toasts, etc.]. 

Hope This Helps :]

We were considering an iPod wedding, but decided not to — mostly because I’m so exhausted from work and other stuff that it’s just easier at this point to hire someone else to do everything. When we were going to do it, though, we were going to rent a good sound system and run itunes off a laptop (not actually the ipod). I agree with lily that you need a designated person to make announcements, too.

At a cousin’s wedding, they used an ipod docked into a boombox-type speaker, and there were all sorts of glitches (i don’t know if they had never used that boombox before, or what), so the bride ended up hunched over the speaker dock trying to trouble-shoot it. So if you’re going to use the ipod, just make sure it works well with your speakers and give it a run-through before the wedding. Otherwise, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with the idea.

I just had an iPod wedding. We actually brought in our Mac and used the iPod as a backup. We connected the computer to a speakers. We set up playlists for the ceremony, cocktail hour/dinner and dancing. We had a good friend keep track of the songs and make sure everything went smoothly. He made sure to “fade out” songs at the perfect time during the ceremony. It worked perfectly for us and now we’ll always have the music from our wedding.
