DJs

I'm curious. For those of you who have already gotten married, and for those of you planning your weddings, what are you planning to do about DJs? Did you or will you have a DJ at your reception? Will you have a band or minstrels? Was the music Pagan oriented, popular, or mixed?

i intend on just using an ipod for my reception. although i am definitely toying with the idea of getting a caller and doing contra or square dancing.

square dancing? LOL I've never learned. I'll be so lost. I've been thinking about the ipod too, but I would like someone to act as master/mistress of the ceremony during the reception to announce when Ron and I would have our first dance, when the cake will be cut, etc. Would you have secular music only, or some Paganish ones?

This probably won't help, but we had no music. Just a big buffet lunch. I actually preferred it that way.

Well in terms of sharing, it lets others know that that option is there! Me - I love dancing and would be upset if there wasn't any at my wedding. But I know a lot of people who don't like to dance and not having music a possibility.

My is another five years away but I'm a planner/dreamer. Conviently enough my brother is a dj (mainly techno and house in NYC) and I am working on compliling a list of songs and certain parts of songs some which I wish to be present in full with little tampering and others I wish for him to mix up to feel more tribal/celtic/medieval ect. I'm sure I'll find a number of pagan songs but for the most part they'll be irish, medieval and world music.

Artists I know I'll draw heavily upon are Loreena McKennit, Enya, Gaelic Storm, Seven Nations and the Prodigals. I also just like to listen to the radio and listen for songs that I can picture either doing a folk dance or very draceful medieval hand dance to. They'll be snippets from Tori Amos and Sarah McLachlan in there I'm sure.

Ideally if I were to say win the lottery I'd like this in combination with a live band, my partner wants Gaelic Storm. Now I am in lucky in that this will be a present from my brother but I would recomend finding someone with some music mixing skills whose willing to work to your liking, not a disc jocky with a loud personality.

I hope this helps. I need to go back and comment on some of your other posts as well.

Blessings,
Cedar Ravenna
