Has anyone had positive experiences using an ipod instead of getting a DJ? I want to mostly just have background music, not necessarily dancing. We will probably rent a mic for speeches and the ceremony though. I would rather spend the money elsewhere but I have also heard some negative stories on doing an ipod.
Also, I have heard if you do the ipod that you need to have someone making sure it plays smoothly and all that. This might be a dumb question, but can I just ask a bridesmaid/groomsman/other friend to check it occasionally and fix it if it stops? Or do I need to assign someone to sit with it all night?
