Your love story has always had a soundtrack. For every major moment in your relationship, there is a piece of music that takes you right back to that first kiss, that awkward slow dance, or that restaurant where you popped the question. So it’s only natural to want these songs played at your wedding. There’s no other way to tell your story than with the playlist that defines your journey. So what do you do when your DJ takes song requests that kill your dance floor and your vibe? It can be hard to balance what you want to hear with what your guests want to dance to, but we are here to help you bridge that gap.

Music is a key part of any wedding reception. If you’ve made the choice to hire a DJ instead of a live band, your next step is to build a playlist of songs that you and your partner want to have at your wedding. Take your time with this step; spend a couple of weeks slowly building a playlist on Spotify. Talk with friends, look through photo albums, and revisit old memories to build your collection of songs. What was playing during your first date? What was your first concert together? If you’re honoring traditions such as the first dance for the bride and groom, the mother-son dance, and the father-daughter dance, find songs for these moments and tell the DJ your desired order. Oftentimes, these couples will not want to dance to the full song, only the first minute or so. Your DJ can edit the song down, or fade out the music when the dance feels complete.

Your playlist can have a strict order, or act as a road map for your wedding! A good Dj can take your song requests must-plays, and at times more importantly the do not plays along with reading the crowd to create a customized curated playlist for you and your guests.

Everything boils down to having an open line of communication between John, our Director of Operations and you, the couple! When things are carefully planned and everyone works together, this helps to ensure a fun filled evening that runs exactly how you expect it too!
