- Wedding: October 2009
What do you like to hear at weddings? I love the songs that when they come on the reaction is "OMG I LOVE THIS SONG!!" Do you like old 80s stuff? I love when I hear Bon Jovi, Journey, Guns N Roses, etc. You can’t go wrong with a few select Madonna or Michael Jackson songs, either. I think a good mix of old classics, modern classics, and current hits is always a good idea for a wedding. There are probably tons of lists on the web, just Google it. Also, your DJ (if you’re having one) should know how to read the crowd and figure out what to play at what time. Good luck!
Hubby & I are in the same boat. (we married civilliy never had a wedding) anyway, but yes, we as well can only take so much "hip hop & rap" we figured some fun disco 70’s classics for sure, some swing music too, some OLD classics like Frank Sanatra for some slow dancing, some 80’s, love songs from the 90’s, some older 90’s fun dance music, we are also hispanic so some spanish Salsa & Merengue is a must for us. which helps us mix it up some more. we are looking for music where our guests can more "Free style" dance as opposed to . .. "booty" & etc … if you are into country & if your guests know some line dances that maybe an opition for you, country music. some other classics are "electric slide" & "The slide cha cha cha" also, "The Train" is a fun one too. songs like "SHOUT, YMCA etc . .. " are timeless fun classics. Your DJ should be VERY musically inclined, he/she should know what artists & style of music to more or less play based on your "style". If you guys are Christians. check out some of the modern Christian music scene. like "Mary May" good music with a good message can definitely move to it. most guests probably won’t even realize they are daning to "Christian" music because it mirrors so much like the popular secular music. I have noticed that the "pop" & "pop rock" they play on Disney channel seems to be in. you may find some of that style of music of some interest. its not club music, its clean, & you can dance to it. & if you have any pre-teens or teenagers or even kids at the wedding they will definitely appreciate it. don’t be afraid to ask your DJ for samples if what they have visioned for you in trying to make your vision come alive.
anyway , this is all just off the top of my head. Good luck. Happy Planning. =)
Hubby and I did the same thing, married civilly and are now having a reception on our year anniversary. We were lucky enough to score our reception hall with an iPod jack wired to the speakers. Total money saver!
I just got done putting together my playlist for the reception. Neither of us like the rap/hip-hop stuff, but at the same time some of the more poppy hip/hop songs can be very fun to do dance to, like Outkast – Hey Yay, and Beyonce. We mixed in a lot of 80’s, classic rock, country and pop songs. If you want I can send you a copy of our play list in a word document….I think. Just shoot me a message or e-mail me at [email protected].
