When creating your playlist for your wedding, I always recommend that you keep
your guest in mind. Chances are that there will be 3 generations in attendance.
Your playlist should feel inviting to them. Guest tend to react to songs that they
are familiar with. To help them feel a part of your celebration, include songs from
there era that are popular enough that the younger generation know.
An experience DJ should know how to put together your personal favorite along
with songs that will motivate your guest. Perhaps you can ask your Grandparents
what their favorite songs are. Maybe do a dedication to them. It only takes a few
songs to make you more mature guest feel included. I have seen a trend where
couples will include a song request form when sending out invitations. This will
help your DJ when putting together sets for your reception.
Your playlist is the soundtrack for your wedding. Don’t be scared to include your
favorite song that may not be popular dance songs. Those songs are perfect for
the cocktail hour or to be played during dinner. Remember it is your day and your
music should reflect your personalities.
