If you’re going with a professional vendor, I think a general direction is the best way to go. My friend had a wedding where she outlined almost every song she wanted to hear, and unfortunately it sounded weird lumped together like that, nobody danced, and it was super awkward. Our “playlist”, or suggestion bank, looks like this:

  • Bride & Groom First Dance: Jason Mraz “I Won’t Give Up” will be played on guitar by bride’s brother


  • Bride & Father Dance: Loudon Wainwright “Daughter”


  • Groom & Mother Dance:


  • Optional: Bridal Party Intro Song: Stevie Wonder “Signed, Sealed, Delivered”


  • Optional: Cake Cutting Song: “


  • Optional: Last Song of the Night: Donna Summer “Last Dance”


  • Other song requests for cocktails/dinner/dancing:

    • Cocktails – think lively: Beatles, Temptations, Aretha Franklin, Sinatra

  • Dinner – think upbeat: Ray Charles, Jimmy Buffet, Jason Mraz (those artists aren’t mandatory, just nothing too slow)

  • Dancing – modern popular hits peppered with older, fun stuff like “Paradise by the Dashboard Light”, “Build me up Buttercup”, “Twist & Shout”


  • Optional: Songs/Artists you absolutely don’t want to hear: Neil Diamond “Sweet Caroline”; Kool and the Gang “Celebration”; Michael Jackson “Thriller”; “Butterfly Kisses”; Louis Armstrong “What a Wonderful World”; J-Lo “On the Floor”; Justin Bieber; Selena Gomez; Village People; NO LINE DANCES

I think it’s important to leave room for the DJ/singer/band to take the pulse of the room and see what people are into. So we’re just going with something like this (still in progress)
