Top 100 Songs That Are On DO NOT PLAY Lists At Weddings

18 January 2017

Hot off the presses which also includes data received from 2016 weddings in Charleston is the Top 100 Songs that are normally added to the DO NOT PLAY LISTS of bride and grooms. Some of these jump out at you like the cheesy line dances and some of them jump out at you not because they are bad songs, but because people are burned out of hearing them at weddings and want to change.


Even if you don't hire me to create the perfect playlist for your wedding ceremony and reception, please request that your DJ respect you by allowing you and your fiance to construct a DO NOT PLAY List. The DO NOT PLAY List is an integral part of discussions with your DJ. The worst case scenario for you is a DJ that just shows up and plays "whatever", which will likely include cheesy songs your despise. Down below, I list the Top 10 songs. For the remaining 90, feel free to download the PDF file that is attached to this blog post.

Download the PDF file up above and remember the music at your wedding reception should be all about you. While you'll be pulled in a 100 different directions and may not seem like you have time to even get a dance in before you leave, the songs you do hear should bring a smile to your face and create lasting memories. Creating a Do Not Play List for your DJ to adhere to is part of this.

DJ Mike delivered well organized and orchestrated results that made for a great wedding and reception! Couldn't have picked a better DJ to cover our event and truly appreciated his availability to pick up the job and execute in such a short time period. I highly recommend his services, overall great quality.

Before choosing Mike Bills as our wedding DJ, we looked at several companies and DJs and looked over the reviews for all of them. We chose Mike Bills because of the overwhelmingly great reviews he got and I am so glad we did! They were all spot on! Mike was great to work with, quick to respond, came to our rehearsal to do a run through with us.

Mike was kind, courteous, professional, and creative! We thoroughly enjoyed working with him for our destination wedding at Folly Beach. We gave Mike minimal guidance and he caught on to our "style" quickly and efficiently. Our guests are still raving about the music selections, and how they were a great balance of new tracks and standards for everyone to enjoy.
