How to Work with Your DJ to Create a Customized Playlist

Updated: May 29, 2023

Your wedding day is a special occasion, and music plays a crucial role in setting the mood and creating memories that will last a lifetime. To make sure that the music matches your vision for your big day, you'll want to work with your wedding DJ to create a customized playlist. Here are some tips on how to do just that:


1. Communicate Your Vision


First and foremost, communicate your vision for the music with your DJ. Share your preferences, favorite genres, and any specific songs you want to hear.


2. Consider Your Guests


While it's important to make sure the music reflects your taste, you also want to consider your guests. Think about the age range and musical preferences of your guests to create a playlist that will appeal to everyone.



3. Plan for Different Moments


Your wedding day will have different moments that require different types of music. Work with your DJ to plan for these moments, such as the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and reception. Each of these moments will require a different vibe, and your DJ can help create the perfect playlist for each one.



4. Ask for Recommendations


Your wedding DJ is an expert in music and has likely played at many weddings. Ask for their recommendations on songs and playlists based on your vision and the specific moments of your wedding day.



5. Be Open to Suggestions


Your DJ may have some great ideas that you hadn't considered. Be open to their suggestions and work together to create a playlist that reflects your vision and keeps the dance floor packed.



6. Don't Forget the Do-Not-Play List


Just as important as the songs you want to hear is the list of songs you don't want to hear. Make sure to communicate this with your DJ, so they don't accidentally play a song that you don't like.



7. Review and Refine


Once you've created a customized playlist with your DJ, review and refine it as necessary. Make sure it reflects your vision for your big day and the moments that matter most.



In conclusion, working with your wedding DJ to create a customized playlist is essential to ensure that the music matches your vision for your big day. By communicating your vision, considering your guests, planning for different moments, asking for recommendations, being open to suggestions, creating a do-not-play list, and reviewing and refining the playlist, you can create a musical experience that you and your guests will never forget.
