Wedding Music & Dancing: Wedding Song List for Wedding DJ?

Q:

Our wedding DJ asked us for a wedding song list for our wedding reception. I have no idea what the right ratio of fast wedding songs versus slow wedding songs should be. Any ideas?

A:

For a 4-5 hour reception, select 50-60 each of fast and slow songs. While this will probably be more than you need, it's better to have more options than too few. Your DJ will pay attention to what people are responding to. What they dance to will determine how many of each type of songs should be played. DJs are professionals at keeping the party going, so trust him or her to keep your crowd happy.
