Some brides and grooms opt to use an iPod instead of a DJ, often to save money on reception expenses. I think iPods can work sometimes, especially if it is a small wedding and the bride doesn't think there will be much dancing. Another option some couples decide on is to use an iPod during the cocktail hour of the reception, then have a DJ start at dinner time. That way they save a little money but still get the advantages of a DJ for most of the reception. I think the biggest advantages of using a DJ over an iPod include the bride and groom not having to spend so much time creating a playlist and worrying about if it will go over well. A DJ also has the ability to change the music quickly to adjust to the mood of the crowd.
