No problem! Glad I could help. I’ve already changed the order a lil bit, lol.  I found an iphone app that is perfect for doing an ipod wedding.  Look for weddingdj.  We are gonna use that and have my brother be in charge of watching over playlist.  I know my playlists are really long but figured I would much rather have too much music than not enough. 



Good luck! You are getting married the day before me! Yay to beach weddings!

How did your ipod receptions go? Did people dance? Did the playlists work in reality?  I’m considering forgoing on a DJ due to budget and just want to know what others’ experience has been.  thanks for any insight!
