How many hours=several hours? If it’s 4 hours or less, it might be a little much, but if its closer to 8 hours, I think it should be fine. 

There will definitely be some repeat artists at our reception (but more like 3-4 songs per artist and we’re expecting the party to last all night, so more like 8-9 hours)

I would try to spread them out, between dinner, dancing, toasts, cake cutting throughout the reception or even consider moving 1 or 2 songs to the Prelude before the ceremony (if you can have contemporary music beforehand or if you are having musicians, maybe consider asking them to do an instrumental version of 1-2 of the stevie songs for the ceremony).

Other than that, do you know your guests well enough to think they will enjoy that much stevie? 

hopefully that helps, I know there have been some songs I’ve considered for reception music, but realized should be cut because I would likely be the only 1 enjoying the song and don’t want to clear the dance floor:)

You know I don’t remember a single song played at our wedding expect the special dances (ie. First Dance).  I was on the dance floor all night but everything was a blurr.  So don’t worry about it.  If your DJ sees that people aren’t on the floor as much for one type of music they’ll keep playing the things people will move to!

And I had lots of wish list songs on our play list and we just didn’t have time to get to all of them.
