Have many of you bees put anything else on your RSVP cards besides meal info or guest info? I have thought about asking a song that the guest would like to hear and have the DJ add it to the reception paylist. What do you guys think??

I think that is a cute idea and a great way to get people out on the dance floor! They HAVE to dance when their song comes on!
Since I’m having a band and I don’t think they take requests, I’m just doing the meal selection on my RSVP’s.

@RiverBride13: That would be a little difficult with a band! I’m glad you like the idea though! 🙂

Here’s the problem with the song thing… what if you don’t like the song? Are you going to feel compelled to ask the DJ to play it anyway? Also, how many requests are you going to get? A DJ can’t really do his/her job if the entire night is taken up with premade requests.

@mrsSonthebeach: The plan would be for each couple to request one song. I see what you’re saying about not liking a song. I am making a “do not play” list and if it was on that I wouldn’t want to hear it. Thats something to think about!
@Britt214: Thats a cute idea. I haven’t thought about anything like that yet!

We did this and worked out great. We got a lot of requests, and we wrote them down beforehand for the DJ to play. Guests were happy and excited to hear their song playing. Ours said: We promise to be on the dance floor if you play ____________. We also put an “excite-o-meter” for guests to fill it. We wanted to give a fun and unique twist to the traditional RSVP card.

@cantwaittogetmarried2014: I just used it to get a bit of a feel of the type of music my guests were looking for. A lot of people requested their own first wedding dance, which would have lead to a night of 70’s/80’s ballads… and a lot of people requested songs that were pretty un-danceable, so I just skimmed through and picked a few, and gave extra special treatment to the more “special” guests. If Grandma really wants to hear Anne Murray’s “Can I have this dance”, then it’ll be played :P.
I had “I promise to dance if you play” and “Anything else we should know”. I talked about it on another thread, but I loved the second field. Some people used it to provide perrtinent dietary or other needs, but lots of others used it as just a spot to write things in general that we should know, advice for marriage, jokes, and a couple people wrote “turn over” and drew us a picture on the back. Super fun to get them in the mail.
