Sample Wedding Reception DJ Playlist

Hi y’all!  Here is a sample song list for a common wedding reception playlist.  We’ve split the song list into:  Dinner/cocktail music, Casual dancing, Slow dances and Late night dance music.  This is meant to just give you an idea of what kind of music we would play if I didn’t have input at all from the bride and groom. We never go into a wedding reception with a playlist built before it starts because things change so quickly.  That’s really the essence of being a good DJ!  It has to be kept fresh and reacting to the crowd. By tweaking a few songs here and there and playing songs in the order that works the crowd, I always get the dance floor packed!  We can’t stress enough that every wedding is unique and special.  You won’t have much luck just plugging these songs in and hope for the best.  GOOD LUCK!
