So for some reason I can’t find anywhere what is the recommended amount of slow songs for the reception? I remember at the 2 weddings I’ve been to, thinking their should be more “lovey-dovey” typse songs. My Fiance says 5… I think 5 for a 3 hour recpetion seems too few? What do you think?

I think it depends on what kind of crowd you have and what you want. I don’t expect a lot of people at my wedding wil be big dances, and the vast majority are long term or married couples, so I plan on playing quite a few slow songs since I know that at least I will enjoy dancing to them. But if you have a lot of friends who want to get down and party, play fewer.
Do you have a DJ? They should be able to tell you and to judge the crowd on when to play them.

@HelloKittyEsq: Your right, the DJ probably will handle that. We have assembled a list of all the songs we want played to assist the DJ as much as we can. He is doing us a big favor and doing it for WAY cheaper than he normally get paid so I want to help him out as much possible. Thanks!

IMO 5 is waaay too few. I usually like about 4 fast songs then 1 slow song. You want to be able to relax every now and then instead of getting all sweaty!

I could be totally pulling this out my backside, but I think somewhere I read that in a block of 6 songs, you do: 3 fast, 1 slow, 1 fast, 1 slow.
But as PPs have said – it depends on your crowd, your music genre/s & the vibe you’re going for.
