The best wedding parties are those that play some lovely wedding music and can actually make guests feel like dancing and flocking to the dance floor. A good wedding music disc jockey can definitely make your party come alive but you too can help by taking care of a few points.
Make a Playlist: Even though you have a very good wedding disc jockey that has a library of thousands of songs, make sure to make a playlist of your own and suggest songs that you want to be played, like the first song you would like to dance to. Also make sure to include lots of variety in the list, everyone’s taste is not the same, your school buddies might want to dance to one song which might not appeal to your business associates. Make sure to include different songs that will appeal to different group.
Make a Do Not Play list as well: Make sure to create a list of songs that you surely wouldn’t want to play at your wedding. There are many songs that are the favorites of music disc jockeys, they might be good dance numbers but might not be appropriate for the wedding. So make sure to let your wedding disc jockey know what actually you want and don’t want.
Play your Guest’s Choice: Ask your guests to mention their one favorite song which will definitely make them dance, on the reply cards. Now incorporate these songs in your playlist, now you have something for everyone.
Make Grandma Dance: It is generally the older guests who leave early; they also get bored with the current numbers being played. Make sure to include songs from their generation as well, so they too enjoy the party. You can play ever popular numbers like Elvis Presley’s “Teddy Bear” etc which will appeal to every generation.
Dance Early: According to the tradition, dancing doesn’t start till the wedding cake has been cut, but why not start the dance a little early. If you have good music you’ll definitely find people flocking to the dance floor much earlier. It will also help create the ambience for some real good dancing if you start early.
Make sure someone starts first: Research shows that people are more apt to dance if there’s already someone dancing on the floor. Tell the bridal party that it is one of their duties to start the dancing and also to ask people to join them. Once a couple starts dancing other people will gradually join them on the dance floor.
Meet your wedding disc jockey in advance before your wedding, talk with him see that you gel well. Tell him your suggestions and what you actually want and what you don’t want, so that he has a clear idea of what to play. A good music disc jockey can actually make your party come alive and really make the party an unforgettable one.
