Does it matter if I'm not having dancing at my wedding?

I don't have a dance floor and my wedding is during the day :)

Miss Renee Simone

Of course not!

You may find though that if the music is well selected people will be swaying in their seats or the oldies might get a up for a little waltz between courses. 

Its important to have a good consultation with the person doing your entertainment so they aren’t pushing against the grain to get people dancing. 

There’s a fine art to playing background music that has gentle peaks in the right places. 

Feel free to contact me direct if you have any other questions :) 

if i go with a dj company how can i guarantee the dj i get is going to be any good?

Miss Renee Simone

I would recommend going with an individual DJ so you can check out their website and get a vibe. If possible have a meeting with them and select them in the same way you are selecting the food and your celebrant etc. Its SUCH an important part of the day. The music can make or ruin your wedding. You need to have a connection wih the DJ so youre on the same page. If the company wont let you then Id suggest looking elsewhere. Its definitely not something you want to just hope for the best on. 

do i have to provide my dj with a playlist or does he just play his usual wedding song list?

Miss Renee Simone

If you pick the right DJ they will know how to rock a mixed age crowd but any wedding DJ with a 'usual song list' would be dated in a few months! There's an art to knowing the people you have infront of you as a DJ and the time of day or mood thats requred for a particular moment. Thats what makes it fun and dynamic.  

I like to get a few song requests from the bride and groom before the wedding. I ask for 5 you'd love to hear and 5 you'd hate to hear. From those few songs I can tell what other types of music you would like.

One of my favourite parts of the process is hearing the stories behind why the songs are so special to the couple, often the couple learn things about each other they didnt know. Its a really magical process and it makes playing for them so personalised and meaningful. 

So in short, give a few examples of artists or songs but dont be too prescriptive or you'll lose the point of tusting a professional to manage the flow.
