What Tunes You Need at Your Wedding!
How many songs do I need to pick?
This is the part of event planning that most couples struggle to complete. Often, there are too many or too few choices. It's a fine balance between choosing some songs you love and pleasing your guests; remember, your guests can range in age from small kids to seniors. If you desire full participation from everyone, you'll want a wide range of music that will please everyone.
So how many songs do you need? There is a balance here too. You'll want to give your DJ enough songs to know your musical taste plus those you absolutely want to hear; especially true for unique or cultural songs that are not mainstream radio played. Often these are specific to a culture, Greek life, or even childhood songs. About 10-20 would be enough.
Don't forget to tell your DJ what you don't want or music you despise. We want you happy on your wedding day, not upset about music being played. Remember, this "do not play," list will be applied to guest requests. You should be mindful of what they want and not add songs you simply don't like when your family or friends enjoy the music. Just let your DJ know that you don't want to hear many, if any of them.
Can't I just make a list of songs I want you to play in order?
