Creating the Perfect Wedding Playlist with Your Wedding DJ
So you found the right DJ for your wedding? Great! Now you need to work together to create your perfect wedding playlist. Here are some tips for making the most of your music:
Find your favorite tracks. Note the genre and style; are you looking for a more classic vibe, prefer Top 40, or want a balance of both or want a variety of genres or something completely different? Think about the following questions as you put your favorites together.
What is in your top 25 most played playlist on your iPod?
What’s the one album that is a must have if you were stuck on a deserted island?
What songs have special meaning for you?
Discuss with your DJ. Having a conversation beforehand with your DJ and outlining your must haves, do not play songs and pointing to a few select themes will help your wedding DJ build a cohesive playlist. The best wedding DJs will be equally as accommodating if you have a list that’s 50 pages long or one with a couple of songs on it.
Trust the experts. The right wedding DJ is there to make YOU happy and will play the songs you’ve asked to hear but can also take requests from your guests if you have approved it and throw some surprises in the mix that fit your preference and theme. They know what they’re doing, I promise.
