I didn't want to Hire i DJ because i new that with my family i would be just as capable to put everything together and have a great "DJ"
I spent a coupe hours with my Girl friends writing down songs that were must plays for different party of the wedding and just bought the needed songs off iTunes. It was a great tool that saved us about 800+ dollars.
Our budget was very minimal. I wanted live musicians, but the cost was just way out of our budget. Because of the venue we had, we ended up just creating a playlist on iTunes and bringing in our sound system. It ended up working out perfectly. I had such a wide range of songs that it didn't end up being to kitchy, sappy, or boring. I was very pleased. And it only cost us $50!
You can every song you need for ceremony or reception at your home with minimal cost to you! It was ideal for us!
Perfect in making sure your day is personalized.
I used iTunes to make up playlists for the reception - so easy and a big hit because I had my laptop there attached to the speakers so as the reception went on my guests started selecting thier favorites.
