I'm torn over the music for our Cancun wedding ceremony and reception. As of today, there are less than 10 guests booked (woo hoo!), which means that our reception dinner is going to be pretty tiny. Is it necessary for me to spend $800-1200 on a Cancun-based DJ to entertain less than a dozen people at dinner?
I've gotten mixed reviews from my guests. Some expect dancing, some don't expect such a small group to have a dance floor. It's just our parents, siblings, a few friends... hmmmm. I worry more about guests being bored, but really, how can one be bored with a dinner on a gorgeous terrace overlooking the Pacific Ocean?
The alternative to a DJ would be to have our iPod playing in the background. Not bad. Just means that we'll have to come up with a good list of songs to play for 3 hours or more. Is that ghetto? I've never been to a wedding where there wasn't a band or DJ, but then again, I've never been to a destination wedding.. Unless we win the Lottery between now and January, I think we'll be leaning towards the iPod thing. Just need to compile a list of cool songs, and categorize them so that my wedding coordinator just needs to click play.
Now for the songs... any ideas? hmmmm. Updates later...
