Print out the Must Play sheet and GIVE it to him right before the wedding is the best way I can think of. Myy DJ messed up ALOT. He got the recessional song wrong (He played “We are family” when I told him to play “Sweetest Love” by Robin Thicke) and he messed up the reception songs so bad we had a horrible turnout on guests dancing. But honestly you hired a pro who’s done numerous weddings right? If he is a professional and has done thousands of weddings, you really should relax and leave it in the experts hands. I would hate to be micro-managed over something I’ve been doing for years.

Oh and btw, I had a horrible DJ because I hired him from craigslist without checking out his credibility.

You could always bring them a drive with the exact songs on it. Our DJ ended up using the acoustic version of our parent dance song which was super annoying because it was longer and not as nice as the original…

I worry about this a lot. I’m going down the aisle to The Piano Guys’ rendition of Taylor Swift’s Love Story. I just love a certain 35 seconds of the song, which really sounds nothing like the Taylor Swift version. I swear to God, if I hear TS singing when I go down the aisle I.Will.Die.

Can your DJ come to the rehearsal? That’s what mine is doing since he’ll be coordinating all of the music / mic’s for the ceremony. I feel like it’s going to be very difficult for him to play the wrong song after a run through. He also gave us a worksheet to fill out for him that includes blanks for what song is played when, and a do / do not play list. Very helpful! I like the idea of actually handing him the CD / file if you’re still worried about it. Good luck!

I would give a list of must haves and do not play list! That’s what I’m doing and he cam play what he wants in between. Music is so important, you know the crowd and what they like.
