A question some couples ask themselves when planning for their wedding is “do we want a dj and dancing?” My response is of course! An important and fun part of any wedding we at Vibe Productions attend is the dance portion. Unless you have religious views that restrict dancing or the space won’t allow its a great way for you and guests to unwind and celebrate at the end of the day.  Also it’s necessary to have a sound system for introducing the wedding party and playing music for atmosphere.
Of course there’s the question of $ for hiring a dj. If you can afford it do it, if you need to save however..here’s an option I’d suggest.  Some dj’s will rent out a dj kit (sound board, speakers ect.) set it up for you and allow you to hook your ipod to the system.  All you need then is a fun loving friend or a family member to take the place of a disk jockey by doing announcements and pushing play on the ipod at the right times. This obviously won’t be as smooth as having a pro on the job but you can still have an awesome reception get the job done cheaper!
