The "Do Not Play" List


The "Do Not Play" List


One of the most underrated aspects of music choice are the songs you do not want played at your wedding. There are many reason to put songs on the "do not play" list. You could hate a genre of music, a particular band or artist, you can feel certain songs are cliche and overplayed, or you know a certain song to kill your dance floor. DJs love when you take the time to write down a handful of songs, bands, and genres on your "do not play" list. It will make your wedding a better experience and more fun for all those involved. Below is a list of some songs couples have put on their do not play list. Just because they are on the list below doesn't mean they won't work for your wedding!
