I am new to this board but I am hoping you can help me. My fiance and I are planning our wedding for the second time. Our plans the first time had to be cancelled due to jobs that we were supposed to begin upon graduation being deferred or outright revoked. We are now planning a wedding on a significantly reduced budget (10,000) and we are trying to figure out what to do about reception music. We are having a brunch wedding so one idea we had is not to have any dancing and just have background music courtesy of our ipod/computer since it will be kind of early (12-3pm). My concern is that people may be bored without dancing. What do you think?
We also thought we could do dancing music via the ipod/computer and have a friend keep an eye on everything to make sure its going smoothly. I Does anyone have any experience with ipod receptions or djing your own wedding. Any help would be much appreciated because I don’t want our guests to be bored after they have eaten.

I don’t think that people would get bored. I have been to several wedding that there was no dancing at and we all had a great time. Besides, if someone hears a song and wants to dance, they can.
I have also seen Ipod receptions and they have turned out just fine. There are several people on the Bee that use some sort of Mp3 or computer to Dj for them rather than spending money on a DJ. Depending on the location you may need to rent some speakers, but other than that you sould be ok as long as you have all the right stuff to hook it all up. I have also seen some events, not wedding related, that have just used the ipod docking station for the music. And it worked out. You just need to test it and make sure you can get he music level you would like.

I don’t have personal experience, but there are plenty of bees and posters who have experience with this. Have you tried searching for Ipod wedding here on WB? Here are a few I saw…
