Melbourne Wedding DJ Tips – Common Songs On A “Do Not Play List”

Couples these days like to requests songs not to be played at their wedding reception. Here at Matt Jefferies Entertainment we give them the option through our online portal called DJ Event planner.

We get lots of requests for various songs not to be played at their wedding, but one song that was played at every wedding for the first dance, Ed Sheeran – Perfect is now often on our “Do not play list”. There is also a trend for hand action songs with there own dance moves like YMCA, Macarena, Gangnam Style, The Bus Stop to be added. What I find interesting about these songs being on the “Do Not Play List” is that quite often guests will come up and request the hand action songs and the bride then allows it to be played.
