We’re going to have several hours of dancing and I love Stevie Wonder. His music just fills me with joy. I have about 7 songs on my must-play list (I’m micromanaging the playlist) and started to wonder: can you overplay an artist? If so, does that not apply to someone as awesome at Stevie?
Are you playing a lot from one artist?

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.
