- Arrange the music collection in an easy to find format. This will ensure that when guests make a special request, the music is easily located.
- Take some paper to the reception if the system being used does not allow for a play list to be put into Que. This ensures that guest requests do not get forgotten.
- Take the time to sit down with the bride and groom in advance to see what songs they particularly want for special moments. They may wish to have a special song for the bride and groom dance or the father-daughter dance.
- Do a diagnostic test on all equipment before the event. There is nothing worse than technical difficulties during a wedding.
- Play soft slow love songs during the reception dinner. The dinner portion should be a relaxing occasion.
- Play a wide range of dance music during the reception after the dinner. Utilize dance music such as Big Band, Country, Hip Hop and the latest club music. This will ensure that all the guests have a chance to get in the groove.
- Be prepared to take suggestions. Guests may want to have a special song played for someone, however they may not have a particular song in mind.
- Remember that the DJ at a wedding is the Master of Ceremony. Therefore it is important to engage the guests and get them all involved in having a good time.
