Wedding Music

Music for your wedding

Scroll down this page to see suggestions for First dances, all the decades and different genres!

The most common question asked as a Wedding DJ is :

What kind of music do you play?

Music is a topic I love to cover as I find many couples worry about what will be played by the DJ.

Many DJs seem to avoid the subject of music and seem to talk much more about extras such as Dance Floors and Uplighting rather than talk about what they are initially hired for. MUSIC.

Will it be music YOU like?

Will the evening music be something dictated to you by the DJ?

The argument goes from some DJs would you hire a Photographer and tell them how to take pictures?
Would you hire a comedian and tell him what jokes to play?

Well thats a good argument but when you hire a Tailor if they made you a suit without taking measurements it simply wouldn’t fit even with all the skill in the world ..You are not hiring a photographer or a comedian you are hiring a DJ, a person who will play music, yes there  is no doubt there are skills involved, mixing, reading the crowd, using years of experience to know what will work in a playlist.

Wishes Wedding DJ takes the approach of rather than be precious about being a DJ it is our job to tailor a set with all our skills to the material suggestions you provide, so the music suits you personally.

The way we have found works best for discerning clients is to get a suggestion of at least 20 must play songs to base a set on.

Remember you can only play on average 19 songs in a hour so providing a 100 song playlist is not a good idea or is it a good idea  dictating the order of songs for the DJ.
A true Dj’s skill is knowing when to play which song and when and what songs flow into each other so the dance floor stays full of happy guests.
You can see in the Gallery I achieve this on a consistent basis.

Let me put your mind at rest Wishes Wedding DJ has vast experience and music knowledge, BUT you are not the same as everyone else or just another wedding couple to Wishes, we listen to what you want at the consultations and deliver that agreed content so you have nothing to worry about and can just enjoy the party.


What you want us to play is happily accepted and pre agreed at pre big day consultations.

We will discuss your musical wishes ..If you want us to just read the crowd and use our experience, great not a problem !

What is also as important is what you DO NOT WANT US TO PLAY.. I ask this question to everyone who books my services, this highlights what music tracks you seriously dislike or that reminds you of a sad event or distressing time..The last thing you want at your Wedding .. So many do not ask this simple yet vital question..Because we care about getting it right asking what you want and what you don’t want are vital to getting your special day right.

If you want to show us a list of songs you like to base the music selection problem!

It is your wedding and we will endeavour to play all that you suggest at the consultations that you want to hear.

You like specific genres? Not a problem ! Wishes has done weddings involving almost every genre you can imagine.

What is important is we consult with you to find out BEFORE the event as asking on the night its too late! We care enough to ask as we want your day to be the best ever.

Here we  have a list of popular floor filler songs at previous Weddings ranging through the decades and many genres maybe a few of these will give you inspiration for your Wedding playlist
