Should you make your own songlist/playlist or leave it up to the DJ?
This can be a tricky one.
Everybody wants to have great music played at their party or wedding, but how to go about this?
You could compile your own list of favourite songs for the DJ to play, but bear in mind that if you have really eclectic, ‘out there’ tastes, your song selections may not cater for all your guests. Where you may love the music, your dancefloor may be left empty and your guests may not enjoy themselves as much as you.
On the flipside, if you leave it up to your DJ to select all the music, you run the risk of an inexperienced, self-centred DJ playing only the songs that he/she wants to hear.
However, if you hire a reputable DJ, you will find they are professional, experienced, can ‘read crowds’ well, know what song to play and ‘when’ to get the best response from guests, can cater for a wide range of ages and musical tastes and who are only more than happy to take requests.
Team this with selecting some of your favourite songs to be played and you get the best of both worlds!
