We’re working on our playlist for our DJ right now, and thinking about all of the sweet mash-ups in Glee. Has anyone played mash-ups at their wedding (or been to a wedding where they played mash-ups of popular songs)? I don’t know if it’s a great idea or terrible idea, not sure how guests would react. Thanks!

I wouldn’t really recommend mash ups of dance songs at your reception. Part of the reason that djs play popular songs is because people recognize them and know what to expect and therefore feel comfortable dancing to them. If it’s a mash up it might be confusing and keep people from wanting to dance. I would only go that route if most of your guests happen to be really good dancers.

If a lot of your guests are glee fanatics then they may love it. You know your guests better than we do, but like Zusie said, a lot of people like dancing to familiar songs so they may feel insecure about dancing to mash ups

I agree with PP. I think a couple would probably be okay, but I would keep it at that. If people want to dance to/sing a song, they want the actual song, and the whole thing. It’s really frustrating when you’re all excited about it and then 10 seconds in it becomes something else. Also makes it kinda hard to dance to.
I mainly say this because FI and I have been to a zillion weddings in the last year and a half, and the most recent one had the DJ play the actual songs, but he ALWAYS cut them short and went to something else. It was really, really starting to bug us. We felt rushed, and like we couldn’t really enjoy the music.
(On another note, I love a lot of the Glee mashups! Esp the Journey ones :))

I don’t know about your crowd, but my friends loathe mashups. You can’t sing along to them since they’re mashed up and sometimes key changes make them hard to dance to.
