The answer is yes - it's very important entertainers avoid playing that song that would ruin your night.
Everyone's taste is different. We often find half our clients can't wait to do the nutbush or the macarena with their family and friends, but the other half can't stand the thought of it.
There might be a song from a funeral you wouldn't want to hear, or you might just cringe every time you hear Horses in a pub while everyone else is belting out the words.
It's your wedding and we help to personalise it to your look, sound and feel.
How do we handle it?
Our DJs are trained to handle that request as respectfully as possible. Rather than saying "the bride doesn't want to hear that", then the guest running straight to you. We say "sorry, we don't have that track".
Most of the time that's where the conversation finishes. Occasionally a guest can't believe don't have the Nutbush but we would prefer the guest be unhappy with us, rather than running to you and hassling you to give us permission to play it.

Absolutely! It is your day, if there are songs which you can't stand, feel have been over played or have a meaning for you which doesnt fit for your special day, it it perfectly reasponable for you to ensure they are not played. Your day needs to be a reflection of you both as a couple and your love.

100% .. We actually think the do-not-play is just as important as the play list.. The only tricky thing is if someone requests a do-not-play song to the DJ.. our DJ will always politely seek permission from the couple on the night

Yes Absolutely , we would rather know ahead of time if there are songs you do not like. The day is yours , we want you to be happy.

100% it is okay!
In fact, it's MORE important to have a DO NOT PLAY list that a PLEASE play list!
It's YOUR wedding and the last thing you want to hear is songs you don't like.
A good DJ will be fine with that (in fact they will be very apprecative of it) and cater the night and the music to your taste.

Absolutely! It's very helpful to know your song preferences, whether just genres or specific songs. It helps us to form the right repertoire to reflect your wishes and desires. Keep in mind, often couples have an idea that the wedding will be relaxed with no dancing but your guests will have other ideas later in the night! So having a band that can cover everyone's wishes is the best option.

Hello, this ia great question.
It is your wedding at the end of the day.
We encourage that you share a DO NOT PLAY LIST with us before your event.
Should the song get requested, we would discretly approach you on the night and share that it has been requested.
At this stage you may say fine, just play it, but when i an outside. Or you may say , no way you are playing that song.
We would kindly advise the requester that we are unable to play it.
