I don’t really know… I’m hesitant to play slow songs at all because I don’t want to slow down the action.  At least you’ll have a DJ and they can regulate the mood.  We’re doing I-pod, so whatever I designate ahead of time is how it’s really going to go.  Weird, huh?

doctorgirl- I’m also doing the ipod (or laptop w/itunes).  I don’t know of an area DJ that wouldn’t play something like the macarena, especially if requested, and the majority of my guests would not be happy with that. 

 D.Marie-are you having music during dinner?  Its always nice to hear the slower songs when eating.  That way you can get your favorite ballads in without slowing down the pace too much.  Then pick one or two to be played after, if you think couples may like to slow dance.

our DJ asked us for a list of songs that we wanted incorporated–his breakdown was "MUST play songs," "Love to hear songs" and "DO NOT play" songs.

It might be worthwhile for you to sit down with your DJ and have him mix in the ones that you absolutely have to hear, and let him work in any others as the mood fits.

We prepped a "Must Play" list and a "Do not play" list for our DJ.  This way, I can be sure that they play "Dancing Queen" for my Bridesmaid or Best Man and NOT play "YMCA" or "Cotton Eyed Joe"!

Our DJ told us our list of "do not play" songs will absolutely NOT be played, even if our guests request them… gotta love that!

One idea is to ask each guest on their RSVP card to write in their favorite love song.  That way it is easy for you to get a big list for your DJ and they will all hear their song requests!

I’ve thought about adding a song request section to our wedding website but then again, not so sure if people would be disappointed if their song wasn’t played. 

 We would like to include salsa and cha cha songs mixed in but we dont’ know how people will take to that since we’re one of the few people in the family who actually know how to salsa and cha cha.

We have a huge list of songs we want to hear throughout the evening, but we’re also planning on having a section on our wedding website where people can send in requests and hopefully tell us if it’s a song that’s particularly special to them. I don’t want people to be disappointed if their song isn’t played, but I’m pretty sure they’ll know that it’s a suggestion and not a guarantee, though if someone asks to hear their own first dance song from their wedding, I’m sure we’ll let it play! 🙂
