Music Request Advice

Okay, this is obvious, but I have to mention this because music is a major wedding celebration fun factor, and also has a much to do with the length of time your guests will stay.
The last thing you want to see is your dance floor empty when an obsure request from a guest is played.
I always actively encourage clients to use their on-line planning area to make and save playlists, and a ‘Do-Not-Play’ list is equally importaint as a ‘Love To Play’ list.
Whether you hire a band or a disco, if you want a true bespoke service to keep the dance floor packed, plan a playlist that will please your guests, not just you two. You may love indie rock, but your wedding isn't the time to show off your discerning music taste. Please, mix in a few of your favorites, but don't leave out the past and present hits, otherwise you risk an empty dance floor.

Guest Participation

  • Your guests can share their wedding photographs for all to view, quick and easily by connecting to a secure network from their mobiles.
  • There comes a time when things can only be solved with a good old-fashioned dance off. You know the rules: men on one side, ladies on the other, and anything goes.
  • Sing For Your Supper: Each table thinks of a song with the word 'Love' in it, then they sing the song before they go to the buffet.
  • Wedding Crossword will test your guests' newlywed knowledge. I will make and print a crossword puzzle entirely based on information about the bride and groom.
    Sample questions include: where you met, favorite restaurant, sports teams, etc.
    (I can also provide this silently via powerpoint with no DJ intervention.)

Mr & Mrs Game

This is a classic and so simple to organise.
The bride and groom are seated in chairs back to back. Each removes their shoes, so that the groom holds one of his own and one of the bride’s, and vice versa for the bride.
I then read the questions for the entire wedding party to hear. In response, the couple raises the shoe of the person who the answer to the question best represents.
To get your guests more involved and connected, have them submit questions into a box prior to the start of the game.
For preset question examples, consider the following:
  • Who is up first in the morning?
  • Who takes longer to get ready?
  • Who apologizes first after an argument?
  • Who said "i love you" first?
