10 Surefire Ways to Create Your Wedding Playlist


It isn’t easy to find the right soundtrack for your wedding if you don’t have a DJ with encyclopedic musical knowledge by your side to help you. From the first dance, the cutting of the cake, to the last dance, there are many things to consider. If you love the idea of deejaying your own reception, here are a few tips to follow.

1. Pick out songs for all the special dances

Every reception has a few headline dances – one by the newlyweds, one by the groom and his mother, the bride and her father etc. It’s important to pick out something for each one of these special dances.

For the father-daughter dance, for instance, Pretty Woman by Roy Orbison and Never Too Much by Luther Vandross are popular songs. For mother-son dances, My Mother’s Eyes by Etta Jones and Coat of Many Colors by Dolly Parton are well-loved choices.
