My fianc茅 and I just booked our DJ and he let us know that we can send him songs that we want to hear at the wedding. So, I like to turn up and listen to artists like City Girls, Meg the Stallion, Cardi B, Doja Cat, etc. Would it really be a bad thing to play some songs I like even though they are inappropriate? My mom says I shouldn鈥檛 because the whole family will be there but I was like so 馃檮 but now thinking about it, it got me thinking maybe I shouldn鈥檛 lol

    So, I'm like a million years old and dont know who these artists are.
    I'd say if its something super inappropriate, maybe nix it. If you can deal with an edited version, consider opting for that. Or wait to play some of those songs til later in the evening.
    That being said, I myself would have an issue with dancing to something like My Neck, My Back in front of my fiances parents.

    What time does your wedding end? Could you plan an after party where you can turn up and not worry about the more conservative guests?

    I wouldn鈥檛. Yes it鈥檚 your wedding but your also hosting and you don鈥檛 want to make people uncomfortable or make that what they remember about your wedding. I鈥檓 from a Caribbean background and that鈥檚 what I鈥檓 worried about my wedding night that some people will be dancing inappropriately. My country is infamous for there parties/dancing. So I will be Giving the dj a list of songs not to play 馃槱.

    It depends on the ages and types of your guests, but I say do what you want for your wedding. We are definitely gonna play some songs that people will not like but it鈥檚 hard to please everybody. And honestly pleasing all my guests every second of the day is not my top priority lol

    I mean it鈥檚 your day. If people will dance to it that鈥檚 all that matters. I鈥檓 sure there are censored versions of the songs if you鈥檙e concerned

    I went to a Sweet 16 a couple years ago where the DJ was playing certain songs and I was mortified listening to the music sitting at a table with older people. Although I personally listened to some of the songs, it was quite uncomfortable sitting next to my FMIL and FFIL with those lyrics. Some things are better left jamming in your car to. I鈥檇 leave it off the DJ playlist.

    This is something I was thinking about too lol. I mean of course we want to be respectful, but it鈥檚 our day and we鈥檙e paying too much money not to hear at least some inappropriate songs that we really like/love. Of course we鈥檙e going to try to keep things appropriate, but I don鈥檛 think throwing in some of those kinds of songs (edited version of course) would be that bad.

    We turn up the same up way. We are just playing the clean versions of rap music mixed in with some classic r&b and new music. I could never have a wedding that is not an absolute party. My family and his family are dancing fools. People know what to expect from us a damn good wedding party and we're gonna deliver. Buuuut we will play the clean version that's all I can give them on our day.

    When I finally have my reception we鈥檙e playing any and everything we want to hear. Maybe we鈥檒l wait until later in the night so whoever is uncomfortable can leave. But I imagine at least most of the people who actually show up will be ok. They play those songs on the radio (although edited) so it can鈥檛 be that bad.

    I had this same inner battle but I chose to not include explicit music, but more family friendly songs. Songs I know my family love and that will get them up and hype. So they鈥檙e still really good songs just not explicit. If your wedding is more family oriented then I would advise against having those artist played or maybe if a lot of the older guest and children leave at a certain time then leave it to the end of the reception. But if your wedding is more of a social guest list then I think it鈥檚 okay.

    I think it totally depends on your crowd. If it's an adult only affair and you don't have a particularly conservative crowd, then go for it! If you've got lots of kids, maybe you can just play the censored version. But if it will be scandalous to your friends and family, then I agree with PP that you should save it for the after party.

    We are keeping the type of music for later in the night. Keeping it classy from like 8:30-10, then free for all from 10-12.
