My friend Jen just got engaged (!) to her boyfriend of four years. They having a small wedding in Mexico and I’m hoping I’ll be able to make it. Jen and I got together yesterday, and when I offered to help with any wedding planning pieces I could, she said the one thing she’d really like help with is making the dance mix. “You know, so that there are things that everyone knows and wants to dance to,” she said.
I have been known to be very critical of DJs at weddings, mainly because I have very high expectations when it comes to DJs in general. Wedding DJs need to play a good mix of old and new, but almost all upbeat (keep in mind I’m always the single girl at weddings). Slow songs have their places: first dances, father/daughter dances… maybe one or two more. That’s it.
But the thing about wedding DJs is that everyone has an opinion about what they should play. So here’s your chance: what would you want to hear at a wedding?
