If I were you I would look on DJ chat boards!

Also, check out the bee archives for DIY playlists:





We started with our favorite “slow” stuff during dinner and built up tempo over a span of 3 songs.  Then we got into more dance music, but still had a slow song every 5 songs or so.

I like the idea of having some mingling music that builds up to dance music.  You can look up the latest hits or just some songs that you really like.  I think it sounds like a fun reception!

i’m with mightysapphire as well–good to let people warm up with some mingling music first before getting to the dance music. i think it’s a great idea that you’re having an after party where people who would like to dance will have the opportunity to do so after the brunch reception–good balance!

I’m planning to have my DJ play the music kndia chronologically by decades. I think the 60s-70s will have some fun music that people can just stand around and drink and get everyone in a good mood, and then when the 80s hits, people will definitely be on the dance floor. Can anyone resist MJ? Later in the night we will play younger clubby songs.

@daniellemybelle:  We tried to start off the dancing music with a couple of slow songs to get a few people out on the floor, but I ended up skipping through all the slow tracks b/c no one was dancing!  Once we got to the “good stuff” a lot of people got out there and danced.
