Can You Get By With an IPOD Instead of Hiring a DJ?

Your wedding is your special day.  Make it memorable.  Your guests will only remember a few things.  The ceremony, the food and the entertainment. 

Interesting Statistics

After their wedding reception was over, several brides were asked questions about the entertainment at their wedding reception. Here are some interesting statistics about their answers:

·         72% of all brides say they would have spent more time choosing their reception entertainment.

·         Almost 100% say they would have spent more of their budget on the entertainment.

·         During wedding planning, brides say their highest priority is their attire, followed by the reception site and caterer - reception entertainment is among the least of their priorities. Within one week after their reception, 78% of brides say they would have made the entertainment their highest priority!

·         When asked 81% of guests say the thing they remember most about a wedding is the entertainment.

·         65% of all couples that chose a band to entertain at their wedding, said, if they had it to do over again, they would have chosen a disc jockey.

These statistics were published in St. Louis Bride & Groom Magazine in 2003. Sources include: Simmons, 2001; USA Today, 2002; National Bridal Service, 2001; The Knot, 2002; Brides Magazine, 2001.


Here are a few reasons to call INREALITY Digital DJ for your entertainment needs.

1. Flexibility
We work for you!  You decide what you want and we deliver it.  Do you want a static playlist or allow requests?  Your choice.  You can also choose to let us handle everything to give you one less thing to worry about.  Customization is the key to designing the perfect atmosphere for your reception. By doing so, we encourage you to inject a very healthy dose of your own personality into the celebration.  We will guide you and help you focus on your wedding entertainment ensuring that it is a reflection of your own style, not ours.
That means your preferences will dictate the styles of music, special songs, which songs to avoid, and style of our presentation.  We like to have fun and your guests will sense that and join in.  We also offer as an option an interest free "Pay As U Go" payment plan that is helpful if you don't have all the money right now or would like the flexibility to pay over time.

2. Preparation
The preparation stage is absolutely vital.  We meet you face to face and work with you from the beginning on every detail. Long before your wedding, you will know that everything will be taken care of just the way you want.  If you're searching for specific song selections for traditional dances, we will assist you and even locate the music for you. We work with you to create your own song list and you can update song selections any time using your online planner.  More than just the best music, we provide confidence. 

3. Value
* 
We offer only a totally all inclusive service. Once you become a client you will be given a logon and password for your online planner/event manager.  You can assign positions, event times, and request music all with the click of the mouse.

*  We don't offer different level wedding reception packages like many other DJ's.  We give you our all at a great price.  We don't feel that your wedding should be rated as "GOLD", "SILVER" or "BRONZE".  You deserve the best on your day.

*  We will perform all Master of Ceremonies duties at your reception and will ensure that the pace is appropriate while carefully maintaining your plans.  We will make all needed and requested announcements and introductions in a professional manner. We will also take care of releasing your guests for dinner if you'd like. Because of our experience and expertise we can make a four-hour wedding reception flow as well as one much longer.  We will also provide ceremonial music for your wedding and reception at the same venue for no extra charge.

* We only use professional name-brand sound and lighting equipment. Intelligent lighting and awesome sound using high power subwoofers. We also utilize a cordless mics for your convenience.

* Your guests will be able to request the music they love to dance to from our diversified selection.  We keep our entire library on hard disks and have the capability to download music you request using a live internet connection.  If you have a special song on a CD we can play that for you too.

*  You will receive unlimited free telephone consultations and professional planning tools online 24-7 so that you may customize your reception to meet all your needs.  Customer satisfaction is priority #1.  After your reception you will be able to rate our performance using our online survey.


4. Professionalism
We start with a quote for services.  If you accept, both parties sign a contract so no surprises happen.  We dress accordingly for your wedding.  A tuxedo is standard but the DJ will wear whatever attire you prefer or require.  We treat all guests with courtesy and will honor whatever request that we can accommodate.  We're also available for full consultation about your wedding at any time. 
In addition, we will call you a few days before your reception date and give you an in-depth itinerary interview/review
verifying your song choices and the proper pronunciations of names that we may be announcing.  We will also not advertise with any banners or signs.  This ensures your reception will not be detracted from by commercials of any sort.

5. Music Volume
We have the experience to know what volume range is appropriate for special event entertainment. (As you can imagine, volume that is too loud can spoil everyone's enjoyment and make it impossible for anyone to converse. On the other hand, volume that is too soft can make it difficult for event guests to hear announcements and to enjoy dancing to the music.) We will use our experience and sensitivity to monitor and control the volume of music and announcements, so that your entertainment is effective and enjoyable for all.  We will also remain attentive to your wishes throughout your event. We are experts at keeping entertainment volume at appropriate and enjoyable levels. However, if at any time during your event you wish to have the volume adjusted, we will cheerfully adjust it as you request.

6. IPOD vs. Actual DJ

Whether it’s true or not, most everyone thinks that wedding DJs can be expensive. A popular tip circulating the Internet from some misguided wedding planners is to save money by replacing a real wedding DJ with your iPod. While this may sound like a great idea, there are some things to consider. Just as with any do-it-yourself project, you must be aware of all facets before you start.

The first most important job for a good DJ is to play music that the crowd enjoys. A simple iPod shuffle has no way of knowing who is dancing to what. A real person needs to run things, but not just any person will do. Putting your 12 year old nephew in charge won't do you any good. The person in charge of the music needs a large amount of music knowledge and experience. He needs to "read the crowd" and select each song based on what the crowd will be most responsive to at any particular moment.

Also, your DJ must not have a fear of speaking in front of a crowd, and this is not as easy as it sounds. After all, he is the Master of Ceremonies for your entire reception. One simply has to think of all the best men who have stumbled their way through a wedding toast with the microphone held at waist level. Also, does your iPod DJ know how to properly handle the grand entrance introductions with appropriate music cued in the background, introduce the first dance and parents dances, announce the cake cutting and set up the bouquet and garter toss? If not, do you want to worry about these things while you should be enjoying your special evening? Oh, and just like you would give your wedding singer or officiant a tip for performing your ceremony, don't forget a gratuity for your impromptu iPod DJ.

Unless you're a music collector, chances are you don't have a music library with big band swing, waltzes, cumbias, salsas, polkas, old country, new country, oldies, classic rock, new rock, soft rock, hard rock, hip hop, the electric slide, the cha cha slide, etc. And, unless you want to subject your guests exclusively to your musical tastes, you should probably buy a selection of these songs because most of them will be requested by your wedding guests. An on-line visit to iTunes and about $100 of downloads should buy you enough music to insure that all of your guests will enjoy themselves. Of course, this will take some time.

Another requirement for a good wedding DJ is that he is covered by liability insurance. Sure, your homeowners policy "might" cover you, but I'd hate to see your premiums next year if an accident does occur. Don't think accidents will happen to you? Are you serving alcohol at your reception? If you're telling yourself, "All the drunk people I know never act like fools," stop and think about that again. Besides, many venues require proof of insurance because they don't want to see their premiums raised because your grandma tripped on a speaker cable and broke her hip. Searching the web for "wedding event insurance" will yield a whole crop of insurers who will be happy to sell you a $1 million dollar policy for one day for around $200.

Equipment is, of course, another important factor a good DJ brings to your reception. Do you know where to get speakers, amplifiers, mics, mixers? Ohio has rental companies that can provide these things. Just Google "dj equipment rental Ohio." Most wedding-sized systems rent for anywhere from $250 to $500 dollars per day. In most cases, you must provide a truck or van to transport the equipment. Now, do you know how to set these things up? Do you know the difference between a mini plug, an rca plug, a quarter inch plug and an XLR plug? Do you know the difference between the gain control and the volume control on a mixing board? If not, will the rental company give you a tutorial? Some rental companies will explain the set-up procedures when you pick the equipment up, but make sure to take notes, because if you have to call them later they will likely charge you for a service call. Some equipment rental companies will deliver, setup, and test their equipment as well as pick up later, but this costs extra. Plan to use your home stereo equipment? It's not made to withstand transport and heavy use under stressful conditions. Good luck!

That being said, if you're sure your guests will rush to the dance floor without being prompted by the right music (or you just don't care if they dance or not), and if you've got a person with an encyclopedic knowledge of music that will run your iPod (instead of enjoying your reception), and you have adequate insurance to cover any accidents that occur due to your iPod setup, and you have a large enough music library to make sure everyone gets to hear the music they want, and you're able to get your hands on an adequate sound system and dance floor lights, and you still will be saving money by not hiring a professional wedding DJ, then by all means use your iPod. You honestly have no need for a professional wedding DJ.

If planning and organizing all this sounds like just one big hassle, you'll probably do better to hire a professional wedding DJ so that you and your guests can enjoy your reception and spend your second day as husband and wife doing something besides returning rental equipment. For a few dollars more you'll get professional equipment, professional knowledge from someone who has planned and performed at hundreds of weddings, peace of mind that any glitches will be resolved quickly, a smooth-flowing and fun-filled reception, and no hassles about tearing down equipment when the reception is over, and no worries about getting it returned before you owe another day's worth of rental fees.
