Planning Your Wedding On A Budget – DIY Wedding Tips and Tricks – iPod Wedding Rental and Audio Video Rentals

DIY Wedding Music Rentals

Are you planning a DIY wedding?  Want to be your own DJ?  Do you have a friend that’s a DJ, but they are from out of town?  Maybe you are having a 50 person informal wedding v. a larger 150+ person wedding.   Are you renting a back room at a restaurant or maybe your wedding is going to be a backyard BBQ style informal wedding?  Don’t have any music gear but you can make a killer Spotify playlist?

Whatever the case is – there are some things that you can do for a DIY Wedding.   The iPod Wedding has gotten some bad publicity in the news and on the internet.  If you are expecting your iPod Wedding to be similar to a larger scale formal wedding – then you are going to be let down.  If your friend is from Alaska and is a professional DJ, but just needs to rent DJ equipment, then it will be more like a formal wedding. It’s OK to DIY your wedding music – just realize what you are getting into and that it will not be like a traditional wedding. You just may need a little help. That’s where we come in.

iPod Wedding rentals, DIY Wedding Tips and Ideas

Whatever the case is – there are some things that you can do for a DIY Wedding.   The iPod Wedding has gotten some bad publicity in the news and on the internet.  If you are expecting your iPod Wedding to be similar to a larger scale formal wedding – then you are going to be let down.  If your friend is from Alaska and is a professional DJ, but just needs to rent DJ equipment, then it will be more like a formal wedding.

Asking for a musician friend to play your cocktail hours as your musician or for your wedding ceremony is a great way to personalize your wedding plans.  We rent electric keyboard or band PA systems to make it all work for your wedding ceremony and reception needs.

LCD Projector and projection screen rentals

We’ve seen both these situations while doing iPod wedding rentals.  A relaxed beach wedding (no dancing) was a great place for an iPod wedding rental.  With others, there was a professionally trained and experienced person DJing – they were just using our gear.

Renting an iPod wedding rental system is not for everyone, but if your vision of your wedding includes that awesome mix of tunes on your iPod or laptop iTunes playlist, then maybe you should give us a call and we can see if renting DJ equipment or our iPod Wedding rentals is right for you.
