We decided to do a cool rustic outdoor wedding and most of our planning aspects have been pretty seamless up until now!!! Our venue being that is a state venue has decided to change its rules on music. Originally you could have any type of music and sound as long as you had a permit.
However now, screeching hault! They have decided that only accoustic music is allowed and you can only use radio’s, iphones or cd’s. We were in the process of booking a DJ for the reception and now have no idea what to do. Its too late to change our venue, as our wedding is in 100 days or so. Plus our save the dates with location and etc… have already gone out.
Any suggestions? Keep in mind this is a state park. Should I try to skate by the rules? DIY with Music? Hire someone to MC like (no none of our friends would be good at MC’s)
Help, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!

What’s written in your contract?

i would read your contract, because if this is something that was changed during your contract, they should still honor your request to have a Dj, and also since (and i am assuming) they didn’t give you ample notice of this change.
If they really give you a hard time, I would just put together a playlist and hire an MC for the night

Still dealing with this dreaded issue! Because my contract says I have to get a permit, they said they just won’t give me the proper permit. What a nightmare!!! However still fighting them!
