In Closing,

The primary task of a Wedding DJ is to play Wedding Reception Songs that fit the style and personality of those attending a wedding celebration.

While that description is simple, the reality of achieving such a feat is considerably more difficult. Primarily, this is because musical taste is a very personal thing. Lets face it, what I think is a ‘good’ Wedding Reception or Wedding Ceremony song, you may see it as in poor taste! Additionally, as there is such a huge variety of great music, it’s really hard to select a playlist with 80 songs.

What? A Playlist Of Only 80 Wedding Songs?

Well, consider the following. A typical wedding reception takes around 6hrs from the time the guests arrive, till the bride and groom run away together in wedded bliss. Assuming your speeches, cake cutting and other formalities will take up to an hour, this will leave you a balance of 5hrs. Of which, one can only cram 75 songs into (assuming your ‘average’ song runs for 4 minutes)

Ok, so now you may be stuck in a bit of a bind…

While you may have a clear idea of the Wedding Music YOU love, will your guests? While it is your big day and you’ll want things to go how you envisage, surely you’d have to agree that when it comes to a wedding dancing the more people on the floor, the merrier!

Worry not, this is one of the key reasons why you hire a Wedding DJ in the first place –  to help with selecting the perfect track list for the perfect day 🙂
