Want Guests to Dance at Your Wedding? Follow These Tips
Your wedding is supposed to be fun and unforgettable – right? Of course, there are a lot of ways to entertain your guests – but truth be told, nothing can beat an evening filled with laugher, good music, and dancing.
Like it or not, simply having music at your wedding is not necessarily a guarantee that your guests will actually dance – so what do you do to make sure this happens, then? We have some tips for you – so read on if you want guests to dance at your wedding.
- Mix the different genres. This is something we’ve advised before and we will always advise it again: mixing the different genres helps you make sure your guests find at least a couple of songs they like (and they can/ want to dance on). Furthermore, even if you and your SO are big fans of a particular type of music, playing just that during the wedding can get quite dull – so you should mix the genres for this reason too.
- Make a decent “do not play” list. This list is very important if you want to make sure certain songs won’t be played during the wedding. Regardless of what your reasons may be for this, you have the right to ask your DJ to not play certain songs (e.g. they may bring back bad memories, or you may simply find them annoying). At the same time, it is really important to keep this list of songs as short as you can – making it too long will automatically limit the range of options, making your actual wedding playlist feel less generous.
- Hire the right person. A wedding DJ is not someone who just clicks on the next song. It’s a professional who knows how to use the best equipment for the best results, a person who has experience in entertaining wedding crowds, and, ultimately, someone who does this with actual passion. Your wedding DJ should also be on the same page with you in terms of style and approach – the last thing you want is a DJ who makes jokes you really don’t find amusing.
