prahajess:  Every wedding I’ve been to has had them, including my own. We played them so the older couples had something to dance to, so we played a healthy mix until the last hour and then ther was a lot of fast songs. I guess I wouldn’t bat an eyelash if there weren’t many though because it depends on the couple and the DJ. For instance, I went to a wedding last August and I can count on one hand how many they played. The rest were fast songs becuase everyone was drunk and wanted to party hard, and the DJ got more dancers on the floor by playing fast songs.

Most weddings I’ve been to have mostly fast songs, but always a handful of slow. During every slow song the dance floor is packed. Older people and non-dancers love them. Even if you can’t get down with your bad self, you can always hang on to your SO and sway.

I’ve been to a few weddings with no slow songs, and I think we will skip them for ours also.  I think most people coming to our wedding will probably clear out with the exception of a few, so I think keeping it upbeat will be the best idea.  Maybe think about your crowd?  I think my mother will probably try to request something inappropriate, like November Rain, to slow dance to.  It’s on my don’t play list because the bride dies in the damn video!  Lol, moms…
