Wedding Ceremony & Reception Music Discussions

DIY Music?

We're trying to stay on a budget and we have a local company that offers this iDJ program, where we program all the songs on a MP3 player and they hook it up to professional DJ equipment. Is this a good idea? Or should we just spend the money on a actual DJ?

    We're just renting a microphone, an audio mixer (to switch between the mic and the speakers) and 3-4 speakers, so we can just plug in my iPod and hit Play on my Wedding Reception playlist. This whole package is going to cost us about $400. Not having a band/DJ was one of the areas we decided to cut down on expenses. Instead, we're splurging on the cake and photos.

    I'm looking into this too and have to say I'm nervous. I haven't researched any DJ programs but that sounds pretty cool. It just seems to me that I'll still need someone designated to hit "pause" "play" or search for certain songs, etc. I don't want a guest to do this since they are just that... a guest! It just doesn't seem right. I also don't want my family, wedding party, husband-to-be, or myself running over constantly to mess with the music. I'm just wondering if, while I'd like to save the money, I'll be regretting the choice because it will turn into a giant pain in the rear.
