So my DJ sent me his 10 page song list and every song was horrible!!! The list was filled with songs from like, junior high! It was BAD! Looks like he pulled Billboards top 100 from 1999. So I am making an entire NEW list of songs I want played. Is that rude?

No. You’re paying him. I’d be mad if my DJ didn’t try to make the reception the experience I want.
EDIT: On a humorous note, at the end of my reception, my DJ announced, “Let’s give it up for Nate and Amber!” My name is Hillary. But actually, I think that it was hilarious!! 🙂

Not at all. You’re paying him for a service.

Nope. And if he refuses your list, then I would find another DJ.

Get what you want! You’re paying him, right?

Absolutely not. And if I were you I wouldn’t even do that much work. I would call him and tell him that his list is not in line with the type of music you like. Give him some basic guidelines as well as a few specific artists/songs that you really love and ask him to come up with a new list.

Not rude, and you better make sure he can deliver. This does not sound good.

Not at all. You’re paying good money for your DJ to play the songs that you want to hear.

Not rude at all. We didn’t quite see eye to eye with our DJ at first either but we had a list of songs ready- and he was hesitant because he was like I don’t know how much this is going to get people up and dancing – so he also wanted to see how it went and had a list of his own songs. His list were ones he commonly played e and we were supposed to circle definately yes and cross out definatley no songs, I think that list helped a lot too.
It ended up going fabulously, he did an absolutely fantastic job of seeing what songs we chose that people responded to and filling in with some great choices and afterwards he told us he was really skeptical but we obviously knew our crowd and it was one of the most lively weddings he’d done.

@Moose1209:I totally agree! My FI’s cousin is DJ’g our wedding (it’s what he does for a living) so I was concerned that he would play music that he wanted since he is family. Not the case! He has already emailed back and forth with us 2 or 3 times and asked what we like, are there songs that are a no-no (“our” song with an ex, etc) and what songs MUST be played. I can see why he is so good at what he does! 🙂

Not rude at all. In fact, I wish more people would as many of the DJs have outdated stuff that it quite irritating.
