Music list refers to what songs you want played at the wedding, like during the ceremony, brides entrance, first dance, father-daughter etc.

As for the ceremony, you can pick what you want to walk down to and what other people walk down to. Or you can just tell the DJ to play tradition music if you don’t care.

Reception: Pick your first dance song at least. You should leave alot of it up to the DJ since they know what people dance to, just tell him no swearing. Most of the time they do not play music with swearing anyway.

We were asked to provide our DJ a list of the “event” songs – entrance song, first dance, parent/child dances. I think that’s a must. He’s also asked us to give us some “example” songs or even “must play” songs for the cocktail hour music and the post-dinner music. We were also told that we could provide him with a list of “do not play songs.” So, you can definitely convey to your dj that you don’t like rap, and you don’t want swearing, but you should also try to give her/him a sense about what you would like, as distinct from making the whole playlist yourselves.

Did not do this, but people would go up to the DJ to request a song during the day of.

I haven’t heard of that. But, like @Cady:  I do know you can talk to your DJ in advance and let her/him know that requests are allowed. The DJ can even make an announcement at the start of the reception letting people know they should do this. Even if you’re DJ is open to requests, you can still let the DJ know in advance that there are certain things that should not be played. Bride/Groom request trumps guest preferences on this matter.
