So your reception is coming up. You have your DJ, but what do you want him to play? Yes your DJ can read a crowd, (or should be able to) but he is working for you. So the question is what do you want him to play? You could just tell him genres(60s, 70s, Top 40s, etc.) but that leaves a lot of room for something to be played that you don't like. You could make the song list, but then that is just something else that can be stressful.
Q:How do you give your DJ a song list without stressing too much over it?
A:Have you guest make the list.
Q:How do you do that?
A:When you send out your inventations, include a "song request" card in there. Have room on the card for 2 songs. Make sure that there is a space on the card for the artist name and song name. Once the RSVPs come back, if the request card is included, put the songs in a spreadsheet or word document. Then simply go through and take out the songs that you don't want played.
Q:How many songs should be on the list?
A: That really depends on the length of your reception. But DO NOT give your DJ a list of 150 + songs and expect him/her to get through them in a 4 hour reception. Typically about 60-70 songs for a 4 hour reception.
Hope this helps. If any of you have questions please feele free to ask.
