I love reading your posts especially about your wedding and I myself am trying to pull off a Disney World Wedding in Dec/Jan of 2015/16. My question is: at your reception you used a playlist on an I Pod, correct? How did you manage the MC-ing duties, I would have a very small bridal party and how do people know when its time to cut the cake, time to eat, etc? I dont really want to pay the huge costs associated with a Disney DJ but am worried. We are hoping to pull this off for 10-12k. Any pointers? Thanks!!

Hi Michelle! We wanted to have more of a casual brunch and didn’t care about announcements. We all traveled to the reception venue together (cuz I didn’t want to make my guests wait around for us to take photos – the boringest part of any wedding!) and just arrived together with no announcements. We had Patrick’s cousin cue the iPod based on playlists I’d made and a timed cheat sheet, so that guided the activities. The catering staff let us know when the buffet was open. The only slight hitch was our planner had disappeared by the time the cake cutting rolled around, so I just let the catering staff know that’s what we wanted to do.
