The Perfect Wedding Reception Playlist

6 Pointers for Putting Together the Perfect Playlist

Putting together a DJ playlist for a wedding or special event is an art.

Check out these tips for putting together a playlist your guests will love and dance to all night long!


Play the Hits

No matter how you slice it, there are certain songs people just want to hear. Play the hits!


90/10 Rule

When it comes to your song ratio of fast to slow, keep it 90% Fast Songs, 10% Slow Songs for best results.


Play Current Top 10's

No matter when the wedding is, play the top 5-10 pop songs on the radio that month to get guests on the dance floor!


No dead air. 

Don’t leave any silence between songs – use a crossfade to create seamless transitions.


Don't rely on wifi.

Download the songs before you get to the venue so you don't have to rely on cell service or wifi for streaming.


Don't play full songs.

Only play a song for about 90 to 120 seconds to keep the crowd from getting bored.
