I need some advice. From the beginning my fiancé and I decided we were going to do the music ourselves. It felt like a waste to pay for a DJ when all we need is ceremony music and background music for the reception. We’re not doing dancing. I made all the playlists on my phone, and now that we’re two months away from the wedding we’re trying to figure out how to make this work. The venue doesn’t have a sound system so we need to bring in our own speakers, microphones, etc. We have a Bluetooth speaker but it’s small and I don’t think it’s enough. I’m really not sure what to buy either.
We also don’t have anyone to press play or make announcements. We don’t want to ask any of our guests to do it because we want them to enjoy the day and not “work” at our wedding. I’m started to get stressed out because there doesn’t seem to be any way to make our DIY music happen. Is it even possible to try to hire a DJ this close to the wedding? I have no idea what to do.
