Making song requests has been occurring more often within weddings. While you may have created a playlist for your wedding, it might not be to your guests’ liking. You and your partner have your own personal tastes when it comes to music, and surely you want to hear the songs you like played within your big day.

You should of course play songs that you would enjoy dancing to within your wedding. However, you should also keep in mind your guest’s personal interests as well.

Providing great music for weddings and events is our specialty. That’s why, here at Black Tie Productions, we have gathered some tips to assist you in making song requests at weddings. If you are interested in learning more, be sure to continue reading:

  • Avoid asking what songs are available. The DJ with have thousands of songs to present within a wedding. With such a large library, they obviously won’t know every song by heart. Also, within the DJ system is where the songs will be held, therefore making it difficult to show guests exactly what is available. It is best to write down your song request for the DJ, and present it to them. This way, there are no distractions with your DJ, and they can tend to adding the requested song to the playlist, as well as keep the celebration going.
  • Be patient. Within the wedding, there will be many guests that may make requests as well as many songs that the bride and groom may have among their playlist. While you may make a request, be patient and don’t expect it to get played right away. Over time, your DJ will be sure to incorporate your song if it is appropriate, approved by the bride and groom, and available within their music library.

Every wedding should have great entertainment! With the right music, you can ensure that your guests will have a wonderful time. If you are still seeking a wedding DJ in Flint, Michigan, please contact us today. Black Tie Productions also offers entertaining Photo Booths and gorgeous up-lighting!
