So we definitely don't want a DJ. FI and are just not big dancers. Even though I definitely had my share of clubbing and dancing my ass off in my early 20s, dancing at a wedding or anywhere sounds kinda like torture to me now.
But...! We love karaoke. We will just sing along to movies on the couch and in the car and we both like going out to karaoke. So do many of our peers. I have a terrible voice (no really I got an A in high school choir class for not singing). I know my dad likes to sing and my cousins will probably join in. I'm thinking it more like some people will participate and the rest can hang out and talk. Casual wedding/family picnic (but catered) at my aunt's house on a lake. We definitely want karaoke, not dancing and we also won't force it on everyone. Plus I mean, you could dance if you wanted I suppose?
I'm not asking for your blessing, just tips! Did you ever attend a wedding with karaoke or was it at yours? Can we just run with it or do we have to organize a list and order and stuff? Do you have any machines that you would recommend? I am thinking of trying to find a machine where you can take normal tracks and just "turn down" the vocals and sing over it. Just because so many karaoke tracks are truly terrible bastardized versions of the song you wanted to sing and it's so disappointing. I'd hate to buy a bunch of CDGs and hate all the versions of the songs. Has anyone used a machine like that? Does it work out ok? I have 6 months but I've only looked on amazon and best buy websites so far. Do you have any other tips for making this fun?
