From my experience the best wedding receptions are the ones where you play a really good variety of music and take the party on a musical journey through time. All of the SpinSisters have DJ'ed in nightclubs so we can deliver very cool weddings but we can also play typical cheesy stuff or we can do a mixture of both. All of us are very multi genre DJs and we can customise your set for you.
When choosing the songs for your wedding, for a busy dance-floor we really recommend picking songs that your guests will know, ultimately that is what is going to make them dance. Think about the speed of the song, play it at home and see if that tune inspires you to dance? If it doesn’t then maybe that tune shouldn’t be in the dancing playlist of your wedding reception. You can add it to your drinks reception playlist instead. Of course there are some slower tracks that are epic which make people come together.
You should bear in mind we can play approximately 20 tracks an hour so that’s 80 tracks for a 4 hour wedding. You can send us as many or as little requests as you like but not more then we can actually play. Please let us know any must play songs and if there are any particular artists, genres or songs that you definitely do not want played. We also need to know what your stance is on taking requests from your guests?
We would carefully customise your requests filling in the gaps with songs that we feel match your taste. An example of a wedding set list might look something like this
Hour 1 - funk, disco & soul
Hour 2 - Current Pop / Pop Classics
Hour 3 - Hip Hop, RnB
Hour 4 - House, Garage, Drum & Bass
This is just an example, we can cater and customise the genres so match your tastes. We will always have a rough plan in place but on the night one if one of the genres clearly isnt working for the crowd we will move onto the next genre quicker then planned, also if one of the genres is going particularly well we might play that genre for abit longer then originally planned.
Of course there will always be exceptions, I have DJ'ed at smaller weddings where we haved played purely dance music all night and it has been epic, but I would say the rule of thumb is the more people you have at your wedding, the bigger the variety of music you will need to keep up the energy on the dance-floor.
Ultimately it’s your wedding reception and all we want is for you to have the best time ever. We are here to help and give you as much advice as you would like so please do not hesitate to ask.
