The Wall Street Journal has an article out today about a new trend in wedding entertainment (here’s an accessible version). Couples are foregoing DJs and either buying or renting an iPod to use during the reception. I did this at our wedding in 2001. I bought a Nomad Jukebox, the hot mp3 player at the time (iPods didn’t exist yet), and loaded it up with songs for both the ceremony and the reception. We played it through the hotel’s sound system. I still have the Nomad, although I haven’t used it much in the last several years. It’s roughly the size of a portable CD player. I figured the cost of the mp3 player was less than the DJ, I could pick the songs and I’d still have the mp3 player once it was all over. If only the skimping on the photographer had worked as well.
