The Wedding Do Not Play List

A bride-to-be is horrified when the deejay at her friend’s wedding plays the wrong song; how can she make sure her own deejay doesn’t stray?

The Wedding Guru answers: This one’s easy: you need to put together a “Do Not Play” list for your emcee or deejay. Most music ensembles have an already-set list of popular songs to play throughout the event. Go over the list and cross out the offending songs, as well as any that you simply don’t like. If they have no playlist, make your own and explain clearly that those songs are not to be played. Conversely, if you have songs that you want to hear, discuss them with the folks providing your music to make sure that it’s not a problem.

As for the deejay or emcee who doesn’t respect your wishes? Readers, I’ll leave that advice up to you: What would you do? Write your answers in the box below.
