With a DJ Service they have music to please all kinds of musical tastes.

With an ipod you will be doing all of your own emcee work, worrying about the events and the timing of every thing. You will have to provide a sound system to plug the ipod into.

They will bring in a sound system with a mic for making all of the necessary announcements and for use by the people offering toasts to the Bride and Groom.
