Ours was just right. People did have a separate area, but when we would have a small break and needed to talk to someone I didn’t have the yell over the music nor did my ears hurt by the end of the night.

I think it also depends on the type of music you play. We had oldies but goodies so I think the DJs kept it quieter. A lot of other weddings I’ve been to that have rap music and stuff always jack the sound up way too high.

I would just tell the DJ that you want the music at a manageable level. If it gets too loud, tell them to turn it down.

Our DJ told us that his speakers would be pointed at the dance floor, and so the music wouldn’t be too loud for people talking at the tables.  I don’t remember having any issue conversing with people at our reception, so it must have worked pretty well.  This definitely had been a concern of mine beforehand, because I hate when the music is too loud.
