April 2013 Weddings

Help with reception songs

I don't plan on dictating what our DJ plays all night but I did want to have some fun, dancable suggestions to provide him with. I of course procrastinated on making my list and now I'm drawing a blank.  Can you list 2-3 of you favorite songs to dance to, current music or otherwise.  I know not everyone shares the same taste in music but I love a pretty wide array of genres so I'm open to a lot of suggestion.

And no I don't trust my DJ fully.  I hate to say it but it was the one thing my fiance put his foot down on - the guy is a family friend's son and he has a legit DJ business but he's new, he's very young and is use to catering to middle school dances (cringe!).  But he insisted and I wasn't going to fight about it so that's why I would like at least a few songs to take and say "please play some/all of these"!

    Mumford and sons-- i will wait <-- super cute song, more of a dinner one though, since its not slow enough or fast enough for dancing! :)

    Now im drawing a blank! haha! but thats one that i told my dj i wanted at dinner. Im pretty sure i gave him a list of like 15 to ply at dinner, so we dont have the boring "string" music that plays at most :) just in case you forgot about it, which im sure youve got it covered lol
