So me and my Fiance are doing our own invitations. We have decieded to rent a sound system and make a playlist instead of getting a DJ. We would like to have our guests tell us what songs they would like to hear/dance to at the wedding.
I think this would probably be a good question to include on RSVP but I cannot think how to phrase the sentence/question. We don’t have alot of space on RSVP cards and so we need to make it to the point and yet sound fun
Any suggestions 🙂

If you are doing a wedding website you could include a comment section for song requests/suggestions and on the invite just direct them to the website.

It would be cute to do a mad-libs esque rsvp card where they could fill in the blanks for something like this:
I hope I can hear (song) played on your wedding day because it makes me think of (blank).

Or you could leave a blank line and underneath or next to it just write Song Requests. Nothing fancy, gets the point across.

I just went to a wedding that did this. Her RSVP card had the standard yes and no, how many in your part, and then at the bottom it said: Request a Song _____________.
I considered doing this, but our dj said you have to make sure no one is going to get their feelings hurt if you don’t play their song(s). So consider your audience. If you trust that everyone’s musical tastes are in line with yours I would say it is a great idea! But if you have a country fan and you hate country music, you may have to end up explaining why you didn’t include their request.

We’re doing the same – I think it’s a fun idea! We’ve put a note on our wedding website and will be adding the following line to our invites:
"What is your one favorite song to dance to?"
(If you’re tight on space and the back of the RSVP is blank you could ask guests to write their song choice there).

we wrote: Will dance if you play this song: ____________

We are doing this on our RSVP postcards as well. 🙂
(Mainly because I’m too lazy to think up a list for the DJ!)
We’re doing a peacock themed invite, so underneath the usual will/will not attend business, we’re going to have a little line drawing of a peacock with the words:
I’d love to shake my tailfeathers to:
(Song request 1)
(Song request 2)
*we may put a disclaimer line that bride/groom have veto power over all song choices. or how requests for the macarena, boot scoot boogie, and the chicken dance will be null and void.

We’re doing this since we decided not to have a dj also. We are writting “make a request and tell us which songs make you get up and dance”. Hopefully a lot of guests fill it in regardless of if they are coming or not so we can get a great playlist together
