DJ Playlist??

Are you guys making up a playlist for your DJ? I know a few songs I do & don't want played but is anyone providing their dj with a long list of songs?

Any suggestions on fun songs to dance to?

    If you're going to spell out every song that you want played, you might as well just save yourself the money and run the music off an iPod.  Beyond your specific must play and do not play lists, a competent DJ will read the crowd and play appropriate songs.  That's what you're paying him for.
    This is a neglected planning bio.
    This is a belated married bio, with no reviews yet because I'm lazy.

    Sometimes I feel like people think that brides are delicate little flower princesses who get all dressed up and pretty for one special moment of their dreams, when really they're just normal people who just happen to be getting married. Things shouldn't have to be sugar-coated for grown-ass women. -mstar284

    Im in the process of making a list of things I for sure want to hear, and the songs I absolutely cant stand. Its very small and I am not planning to make an extensive list of things I want played.

    I made a playlist, but told the DJ to use his judgement if he got requests.  He ended up playing about 50% my playlist and 50% other stuff that people asked for, and it was awesome. He came up and asked me if it was ok since so many of the requests were not on my life.  My playlist had all my favorite songs, but not a lot of current stuff, and the mix was a nice blend.  I picked out two of my friends who know all the current stuff and told him to pay extra attention to their requests.  :)  I just wanted people on the dance floor, and that's what I got!

    Our DJ had a form for selections for specific things (like 1st dance song).  He also asked if we had any must play or do not play songs.  My DH's family is from South America, so there were a few songs that he wanted that a typical american DJ wouldn't know that he put on the must play.  Other than that, we just went over genres and it worked out well.

    Our dancefloor was packed all night.

    I think it is important to make a playlist & a do not play list. This will at least give your DJ/MC an idea of your music taste.

    I have some music suggestions & song choices of our own that we love in my bio! I am a music fantic so I will be working off of that!
