Wow, that was basically my worst fear when selecting a DJ.  One guy seriously said that he would shout a code word, and all the bridesmaids would run out to the tables and pull someone onto the dance floor.  NO.  OMG.  DIE.

I’m sorry he was so cheesy and you didn’t get to dance!  It would have bugged me, too.

Ugh.  You just validated our decision to go the IPod route.  We’re having  a very small wedding, so it will work fine.

That sounds really awful. What a jerk the DJ was.

@Statutory Grape: I second that.  DJs play such an important part in setting the mood of a wedding, and that guy sounds like such utter fail.  Ugh.

Ha…my sister just met with her DJ. She likes the DJ…but the promotore/emcee will have to be kept on a tight leash. He is MUCH to talkative for our tastes. We gave him a list of specific times on the schedule when he should speak and stressed that otherwise he should BE QUIET. I am sure I will have to reign him in sometime during the night.

I would have been appalled to have heard, “Keep it hetero.”  How is he to know if there were any homosexuals in the crowd?  Ugh.  It’s stories like this that validate our decision to go the iPod route (even if it does mean tons of extra work for me and my FI)!

I was just at a wedding where the DJ got up and danced with the BMs!! Not only that, he was one of those who left that big pause between each song, he played the raunchier club songs toward the beginning of the reception, and asked the crowd what he should play!

I wholly believe that a DJ can make or break a reception, and this one picked it up and shattered it all over the floor!!

“Keep it hetero”?  Wth?  I would have been super tempted to punch that guy in the face!

“Keep it hetero”?!?!?  If the two women were a couple, it was incredibly insensitive.  And if they weren’t, it probably made them incredibly self-conscious about dancing with each other.  I think that is the point at which I would have fired the DJ on the spot!

I recently attended a wedding where I’m pretty sure his life long dream was to be a radio DJ. Everything was “This song was the only song to ever be a number one song 2 years in a row” and “I am going to see this band next week, they had a platinum album in 1968.” The wedding was of the younger crowd and what really appalled me was when he said “Well this nice young man just showed me how to hook up an iPod to my system so were going to try something new here, it’s called Low *insert cheesy DJ voice*” As in Low by Flo Rida. He’d never heard of it. *Shakes head*

@In the media: my DJ was pretttty awful. He randomly pulled all our guests into our main dining room and then started break dancing by himself in the middle of the floor while videotaping himself. Then he pulled 2 of our younger cousins onto the dance floor and they didnt want to be there. It was sooo awkward. None of our guests seemed to care though! Also, our DJ forgot our special songs and after giving him a list of 40-50 songs to play he did not play ONE of them!!
