Has everyone done a playlist for your reception music or have you trusted your DJ to read the room and play appropriately. I’ve done my ceremony and special reception songs but not feeling like I have to make a whole playlist?
I'm trusting my DJ to know what to play. In addition to the ceremony/event songs, he asked us for a "must play" list and a "do not play" list, so we'll list a few songs for both of those, but otherwise, we are leaving it completely up to him. He has enough experience with wedding receptions that I trust him to play some good songs to get people out on the dance floor.
This is a DJ's job. Before we canceled ours, he asked us for preferences on ceremony music along with 10 must-plays and 10 do-not plays (along with any special songs for the first dance and whatnot). The rest would've been up to him and his read of the room.
