LETS FACE IT!! IF A DJ HAS TO ASK FOR YOU TO MAKE A PLAYLIST... THAT DJ IS NOT A REAL DJ, THEY CANT READ A CROWD... A REAL DJ SHOULD BE ABLE TO PLAY NOTHING BUT HITS AND SHOULD BE ABLE TO KEEP THE DANCE FLOOR PACKED!!! REALLY? ARE YOU SERIOUS? YOU MIGHT AS WELL MAKE YOUR OWN PLAYLIST AND BRING YOURSELF AN IPOD AND PRESS PLAY!!!! Please don't make this mistake... Guaranteed To satisfy you!!!
I first connect with the bride and groom and make sure that I know precisely how they envision their wedding day going. After all, it's their day, and it's a day that happens to have -- even the ones that go smoothly -- a lot of pressure leading up to it (too much pressure for one day, I say, but I haven't come up with a solution to that one yet).
Once I have all of the information that I need, such as whether or not there will be a garter toss or money dance, etc., what songs they would like to hear (and not hear!), I make sure that I have at least one person that I can connect with on the actual day of the wedding. Someone who is preferably not the bride or groom that knows exactly what the bride and groom want and how they want it.
That person is usually a coordinator, but a lot of times is a friend or relative (by the way, if it's a big wedding, I highly recommend staying away from having friends or family members run the show -- trust me, it's better to hire a coordinator for those or let me and the banquet facility manager handle the timeline).
