You're about to create the soundtrack to your wedding. Let's do it the right way.
Hi, my name is Matt. I'm a professional DJ who has had the privilege of providing music at over 600 weddings. Having personally consulted with each of my clients, I realized early on that selecting music for weddings is typically one of the most stressful parts of the planning process for most couples. Why is that?
Couples spend thousands of dollars and plan wedding details for months so their wedding is remembered by their guests. While everyone knows what music that they like themselves, most people simply aren't confident choosing music that all their guests want to hear.
My hope is to come alongside you and make the process of selecting music easier. To do that, I have a few tools on this website to help you narrow down the best wedding songs for you:
Custom Wedding Playlists are where I suggest you start. Basically it's a free personality assessment that creates a suggested list of songs based on a) music that you like, and b) music that will make others want to dance at your wedding. The way it works is that we have you take a quick free personality test based on music that you like and music that you don't, and then you can instantly download a PDF of suggested songs based on your personality.
This is why our domain name is BestWeddingSongs.org. The average wedding reception is just 4 hours long. Within one hour, a DJ can typically play between 15 and 20 songs (based on an average of 3-4 minutes per song). That means that you need to come up with at least 80 great songs that will pack your dance floor. Most DJs will offer their expertise in suggesting songs, but I believe the music selection process should be the other way around with YOU choosing the music. Rather than starting from scratch, I will provide you with a customized list of songs that you can use a more personalized starting point for the planning of your wedding music.
Another tool I offer at no cost is my list of Wedding Music Suggestions. These suggestions are available on this site so you can build your own playlist based on hundreds of popular songs over the span of several decades. Whereas a Custom Wedding Playlist is intended to give you a narrowed list of popular songs that might fit your personality, my Wedding Music Suggestions are all included in one all-inclusive list that do not incorporate your personality.
Feel free to use one or both tools to help plan your wedding music. However you intend to plan your wedding music, I hope I can help you along the way. This should be and can be one of the most exciting chapters of your life, and I consider it a blessing if I am able to help contribute to the success of such a meaningful day in your life.
Let me know if you have any questions related to music, entertainment, DJs, or anything else about your wedding, and I'll be happy to help. And oh yeah... congrats on your engagement!
