iPod replaces DJs at weddings

iPods replace DJs

Many engaged couples are turning to iPods and other portable music players as an alternative to hiring disc jockeys or bands at their wedding receptions, according to a new report. "Many of our brides and grooms are catching on to this trend," Kathleen Murray said, senior editor for online wedding publisher TheKnot.com. "A lot of it has to do [with] the costs of weddings are increasing these days... For some, music may not be as important to spend the huge budget on as flowers or food." Weddings in the U.S. on average cost $25,000, but the total tab can be triple that amount in urban areas, according to MarketWatch. "It also gives them the chance to put their own personal spin on it," Murray said. "They can have so much fun putting together the ultimate play list, getting suggestions from friends and family members."

    that's what we did

    This is the route my wife and I took at our wedding last year. Our main concern wasn't with saving money, though. Our biggest reason was that neither of us has ever heard a live DJ at an event that didn't annoy the heck out of us. It was a great decision -- great music that we picked, saved a bunch of money (less than $10 for the patch cord), and no lame jokes from a lame DJ. And best of all, no damned Macarena/Chicken Dance c***.
