We had a DJ and one of the good things he helped us do is get a sense of our taste and what artists we liked and play the fun danceable music from them, mixed in with more classic songs that everyone knows.  The good music that you couldn’t really dance to, or a bit more eccletic was played during cocktail hour and dinner.

I think I’d try to find music that we liked, but nothing toooo off-the-wall so no one feels alienated by the music.  I don’t think it does any good to play music you don’t like at your own wedding! Personally, we’re playing what we want, but we don’t expect anyone to dance.  Non-dancing weddings don’t have to be boring, IMO.  As long as there’s plenty of food and good conversation, no one will miss the dancing 🙂

@Dizzzy, when I made my invites I put this for the guests on the RSVP card:

I promise to dance if you play this song_______

I think its a great way to play songs all your guests want to hear too that way nobody has an excuse not to get down at your wedding!
