    I haven’t sent out my invites yet, but my thoughts on this are that if you put the line, then you really have to try to include all of those songs when you give your list to your dj. That’s in addition to any songs you already want played yourself. If you just leave it up to people to request songs during the night at the wedding then you don’t have to worry about it. If you put it on the rsvp and the songs don’t get played, people will blame you. If you leave it up to requests at the wedding, then people will blame the dj. I don’t want to have that extra weight on my shoulders!

    I agree with the PP…it seems like it would be tough to make sure they all get played if you do get a lot of requests….however, I’m saying that as I fully plan to have a line on mine asking people what s’more topping they would like to try. We are having a s’mores bar and bonfire after our campsite wedding.

    Are you hiring a DJ and how many people to you have? I would trust your DJ to set the mood, not the guests.  Leave it up to him/her to read the room and choose the songs.  It may surprise you who gets up to dance- if it’s a lot of older people something more traditional can be played, or more club beats for a younger crowd. If nobody is dancing, then a line dance like the cupid shuffle, or YMCA, or a dance game.  

    If you’re doing an ipod dance then this would be a great idea, and I’d include it on the RSVP.

    We thought of putting a line for requests on the RSVP, but ran out of room. So there’s a song request on the RSVP page of the website. No one has requested songs, yet.
