Tips for Picking Your Own Wedding Playlist

When it comes to wedding music, there are no right or wrong answers – only what’s right for you, your partner and your guests! Here are a few tips to help you choose the perfect playlist for your big day:

  1. Think about the overall tone you want to set for your wedding. Do you want your guests dancing all night long, or are you looking for an early exit?
  2. Make a list of must-have songs, then talk to your DJ about what’s popular. It’s important to also let your DJ know what NOT to play. Explicit music, the Chicken Dance, the Cupid Shuffle?
  3. Make sure you and your DJ are on the same page when you go to book them. Remember, their profession is to entertain so they know what they are doing but make sure it’s the correct kind of entertainment for your wedding!
  4. Don’t forget to leave some room for spontaneity! No matter how well you plan, there will always be some surprises on your big day. Allow yourself and your guests to request favorite songs throughout the night.
