Getting Started

When selecting the music for your wedding... Don't forget that this is YOUR Wedding. This is a full-day celebration of you and your partner's love for each other, surrounded by your Family and Friends, with only endless FUN in sight.

What songs do Wedding DJ's need?

Once we cover what songs your Wedding DJ actually needs from you, your favorite songs will naturally fall into place. The trick is to select and choose just the essential songs Wedding DJ's need, then, take a deep breath... your DJ will handle it from there.

Ceremony Songs

This process is super easy. Follow the Ceremony Songs Guide below to select the songs you need. Remember, not every couple does things the same, some will choose less songs. That's okay!

Reception Music and Songs

As mentioned earlier, imagine the atmosphere you're trying to create for your wedding. Fun and up-beat, chill and relaxed?

Just before dinner, we usually have the Grand March and Cake-Cutting. Right after dinner is typically Special Dances; First Dance, Father-Daughter and Mother-Son Dance.

No cake to cut? Fuh-get-about-it. After dinner? Why not?

Song requests

Wedding DJ's will already know your preferences with Music and Requests from your Consultation. As DJ's, we try to find a balance between song requests, your music list, and our experience.

Tell us what you want (what you really really want)

Do not hesitate to remind your DJ whenever you need anything. Like whenever you want! If your preferences or guidelines aren't being followed, please remind us! Our Goal is to be whatever you need for that day, whenever you need it.
