Planning Your Music

So the date is set, all vendors are selected and you’re ready to start working on a play list/planner!  One thing on every brides mind is how can we keep the dance floor packed all night long!  Disc Jockey Services is here to help you every step of the way with DJ Intelligence online wedding planner & even a music request list online.  We’re often asked about how many songs should we put in the “must play” section?  We offer this advice to keep ALL of your guest’s best interest in mind when deciding on a play list. We help on what genre’s to play or not play. Our music database is easy to use. Hit this link and see what it does: http://www.discjockeyserv.djintelligence.com/music/

Find the song or artist and click on it and it is put on a sheet and when you’re ready to send just push the bottom. Even your guest can send songs to us the same way. Got a problem thinking of songs no problem, just push the most requested song button and you have the Top 200, Top songs of the 1950’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s,etc. You even have a list of Best first dances, Mother/Son Dances, Father /Daughter, Bouquet/Garter. Most of our couples have complied a list of about 10-12 songs that they’d really like to hear at some point in the evening.  Keep in mind that the average song is roughly 3 minutes long so when you multiple that by 60 minutes you have about 20 songs an hour played.  Line dances are a great way to “break the ice” of any event and even more so if the event is held during the day light hours as most people associate “dance time” with it being dark outside.


Keeping your guests interests in mind, it is always a good idea to allow requests from the guests on your wedding day but within reason.  In other words make clear to your DJ in advance if you want to stay away from certain songs or genres.  For example we will always come to the bride if there is any questionable song before just playing it.  If your personal request list for the dancing portion of the evening is more then a dozen or so songs, do make sure that the songs are ones that people can dance too.  This is key to keeping the floor packed all evening.  Also keep in mind to include songs that are well known to everyone. This is sure to keep things flowing on the floor too!
