    Default DJTT Tips/Advice - Wedding Music

    So I'm a groomsman in a wedding and I was asked by my friend to also DJ the wedding. The thing is, I've never been to a wedding before :O. I'm more of a club DJ that plays mostly house music. So I thought why not create a topic that helps everyone out, you never know if you'll be asked so why not have a step into the right direction.

    First and foremost - DO NOT FOLLOW songs listed here to a T. Ask the people who are getting married what kind music they want and do not want.

    As I find music and music is suggested (if you post try and post a youtube link also!) I will update this post

    The types of music for certain parts of the wedding

    Cocktail

    Dinner
    Queen - Crazy Little Thing Called Love


    Dance Time!
    Abba - Dancing Queen

    Look up a guy on YouTube, Peter Lee Johnson. He does violin covers of popular songs. I think is appropriate for cocktails. If you donate to him he'll send you all the covers he's done.

    Good advice, something that is good background music, but people will recognize it.

    I ended up doing like 8 weddings this Summer. I created a playlist on Spotify for cocktail hour/dinner music that I would play on shuffle. Feel free to subscribe and use as your own. I try to keep it updated as best as I can.

    I got lots of compliments on it.

    Also, when I DJ a wedding I tell the couple to download Spotify and start a collaborative playlist with me. They go through and add the songs they want and I go buy the ones I don't have.

    This is also helpful:

    I don't know who those guys are but their playlist is out there for all to see.

    Well, I think you'll find the 'Complete 21st century wedding DJ'guide most helpful. It contains playlists and purchase links.

    According to former wedding DJ and co-writer/creator of The Office, Stephen Merchant, this is the definitive track to play after dinner is over



    that's all I've got, I hate weddings.
