13. Instead of hiring a DJ or a band, get this handy wedding DJ app.
This $4.99 app is simple and easy to use. You can make several playlists for the different parts of your ceremony. You'll want someone to be in charge of the app because the songs play on repeat until you manually change playlists, but that's great for the end of the night when you won't want the music to end.
