I could use some advice here. Me and my Fiance mid/late twenties couple (grew up in the 90s early 2000s). To cut to the point. We are self djing using itunes and our killer sound PA sound system.
How much music for the older crowd.. parents- grandparents.. should we play. I’m talking about Frank Sinatra, Temptations, elvis.. should we consider playing. Most of the music on our play list is AT least 10 years old, to take us back to school dances, and that time frame (so most music is in the 1994-2002 time frame)
How much older music 50s-80s should we play in the beginning of the reception before we get into the more “90s/boyband/GET CRUNK” Dance music. And yes I said that. LMAO. I had to go through and get all clean verisions of our old middle and highschool favorites
Any feedback appreciated

I think it’s better to have more than less, and have your intermediate songs (when grand parents are leaving, freiends are getting rowdy) stick to classic rock that everyone knows all of the words too (journey etc).

since there are new questions on this. I thought i would post an update.
DJed my wedding using an Ipad and the “My wedding DJ” app.
We had 1 PA Speaker on a Stand, and a mic
it was fine. we had a wedding weekend at a b&b and I had the owner of the B&B cue the music for us. I set everything up in the app and the day went flawlessly. The app had preceremony music and processional music..etc so I just waited for my musical cue and walked down the aisle.
for dinner music. I just had my dad take the ipad into the dining hall of the B&B and connect it to a small bluetooth speaker for background music.
I had precorded “intros” for the” first dance” “bride and father” and “groom and mother dance” and saved them as songs and put them in the app before the songs.
the app did cross fades and everything.
it was easy and everyone had a great time.
We ended up dancing for about 2 hours since it was an outside venue, I had about 5 hours of music prepared
