What Songs Should Not Be Played At A Wedding?

R Kelly and Gary Glitter are definitely on the do-not-play list for every wedding, for obvious reasons. I also always try to avoid songs with lyrics about breakups or cheating.

What Song Gets Guests On The Dance Floor?

I have two go-to songs to fill the dance floor. The first is Freed From Desire – Gala. That one absolutely erupts the dance floor every time. The second is Insomnia by Faithless, it brings so much energy and people just go crazy for it.

How Can I Compile A Wedding Song Playlist?

First, I would start with a rough timeline for how you imagine the perfect party would go.

Maybe something like this:

Then, once you have a timeline, you can pick a few favourite songs for each period. 4 or 5 for each period should give the DJ enough of an idea of what you want. If you are too prescriptive, it can actually have a negative effect and remove the DJ’s ability to be able to read the room and think on the spot or play requests.

If you have any specific songs that you really dislike as well, make sure you make notes of them.

The key is to remember that although it is your wedding, you aren’t going to be the only ones dancing and you will want everyone else to be enjoying themselves up there on the dance floor with you. A playlist full of obscure music that you love but most people haven’t heard of will probably lead to lots of people staying away from the dance floor.
