Yeah our DJ gave us a do not play list. On or list is : The Electric Slide & Moves like Jagger- I like this song but Fiance hates it. He specifically asked that the DJ not play it.

LOL yeah I had “NO LINE DANCES”.  I’m sick to death of the Electric Slide & was a little scared some of my cousins would be requesting Bootie Call.  Darling Husband dragged me outside to ask me a question, (there was a wrap around porch on the victorian house we got married in)while one of the guys tipped the DJ $40.00 to play the electric slide.  It turned out funny watching my family doing the Electric slide from outside, yeah hope the DJ loved taht $40 cause that was the only tip he got from my wedding.

We also put no Madonna, Darling Husband hates her.  I think we wrote down 5 songs from each of us that we had to hear than left it up to the DJ.  (had to have Come on Eileen-it’s at every family wedding).

We had a pretty extensive DNP list. And our DJ was great about it- told me that *I* was the music boss- if anyone wanted a song off the DNP list played, *I* was the only one who could override it.

Much to DH’s cousin’s husband’s dismay- sorry, I hate Journey, and pi$$ing off the bride is NOT getting your song played! :)-

Yes, I think it’s standard for most DJ’s to ask for a DNP list.  Before we decided on an ipod reception, our DNP list was more important than our song request list!  The top 2 offenders on our list: Rihanna and Nicki Minaj.  I respect others who like their music, but I personally would rather hear the chicken dance song a thousand times in a row instead.

Yup I’m definitely going to have one. I went to a wedding where they played Kanye West’s “Gold Dogger”. I can bet the bride did not find it funny though the group of us had a good laugh in the car on the way home.

Yes — I think it’s brilliant! We asked for no Chicken Dance or Macarena (or other similarly lame songs) and NO Nickleback!

Our list was:

No group dance

No Rhianna (I don’t like her music)

No Chris Brown (I figure if we weren’t going to play her it wasn’t a good idea to play him)

Drop it Like it’s Hot (We asked for a lot of similar songs, but my fiance hates this one)

No Madonna (So sad–I really wanted like a prayer, but we compromised by having one Journey song, so I had to give up my Madonna song!)

No Sufjan Stevens (My Fiance likes a lot of similar music but hates this guy)

We’re an older couple, and my Fiance said no rap/hip hop. Basically we’re not playing anything current – it’s going to be old school R&B with a few of my favorite cheesy disco records from HS thrown in!
