I did the same as babeandbabe did….. I picked all the main stuff and then just left the rest up to the DJ.  Technically, our DJ had all these worksheets for us to fill out with music we liked, music we didn’t want played, etc. – and any like a stressed out neurotic bride, i filled it out and then didn’t save it and ended up with blank pages.  Luckily our DJ was on our wavelength with music and filled in all the gaps for us with no problem! 

If I were you, I’d just focus on the main stuff. 

For the ceremony – processional, bridal entrance, recessional

For the reception – bridal party entrance, bride & groom entrance, first dance, second dance (if you want one), father/daughter, mother/son, cake cutting, and garter/bouquet toss if you do one (we didn’t do either). 

Any good DJ should be able to take care of the rest for you.  And guess what – if you don’t know what to use for, say, your cake cutting song – your DJ can give you suggestions, or he can just pick a song for you and NOBODY will know the difference!  Good luck!
