    I secretly love playing weddings... They're always for mates or mates of mates so generally everyone is into decent music and it's about skating that line between cheese and just quality classics.

    Truth is when you're drunk at a wedding you want to hear guilty pleasures.

    here are a few mixes that go well together:

    indeep - last night a dj saved my life
    into...
    hall and oates - I Can't Go for That (No Can Do)

    eurythmics - sweet dreams (i use the beat masher on this and peeps go mad for it)
    into...
    new order - blue monday

    Daft Punk - Around The World
    into...
    Stardust - Music sounds Better with you


    Some other big tunes:
    Opps Up Side Your Head - The Gap Band
    Bob Marley - Buffalo Soldier (this surprisingly smashes it for a reggae tune)
    Kim Wilde - Kids in America
    Chaka Khan - I feel for you
    Lynyrd Skynyrd - Sweet Home Alabama


    End with these, and you will kill it

    Prince - Raspberry Beret
    Bill Withers - Lovely Day
    Lionel Richie - All Night Long

    i would pray that they have wifi access or if you have an iphone you can tether it to your laptop for free.. then just run the line out on your laptop to your mixer and youtube songs you don't have.. you're bound to get requests for things you don't have at a wedding especially if you're an edm dj..

    You can't tether an iPhone silly. At least not one that hasn't been jail broken.

    in my area Journey's Don't Stop Believin' is a huge wedding track.

    For the last wedding I did, it coincided with a great deal on a Turbosound rig... I decided to bring it to the gig.... best sounding reception this city's ever heard that's for sure!

    If you're going to go the mobile wedding DJ route, you should invest in a Power Trakks set.

    Not sure if you can get something similar in your area, but this set will have you covered. I was fortunate enough to pick up a used set then I ripped and tagged the entire binder. I don't do many weddings anymore, but it's nice to have the gig covered with a set like that.

    To be honest, I used to hate on wedding gigs, but at $900 a night.... there isn't much to hate.

    The dj never works quite as hard as the photographer that's for sure , but I can pull in double that shooting a good wedding. I hate them with a passion though and don't do very many.

    And sadly,

    at traditional weddings, no one is going to give a stuff whether your mixing is spot on or shite. Many ppl just don't dance to what they don't know, and weddings are often a classic case of this.

    That said, when you do get one where they are up for something more, then it can be great, mainly because you aren't expecting it.

    One of my best trance sets came at the end of a wedding!

    Umm... what? I'm typing this now via a connection from a tethered, non-jailbroken iPhone 3G.

    Especially the bride.

    You should announce that this one is dedicated to the Groom whilst hes chugging beer at the bar with his best man.
