A wedding DJ who has been hired for a specific purpose should always take requests unless you let them know otherwise or you have a set playlist. We usually recommend staying away from set playlists as it doesn’t leave room for an organic and evolving dance floor and music transitions are rough and noticeable. If your DJ brags that they have 100,000 songs, that might be great, but they need to play the right songs played at the right time. 100,000 deep house tracks might not be the right vibe for your wedding.
Every year we hear stories of a DJ that only played what they wanted all night or didn’t have “wedding appropriate” music. At Armed with Harmony we want you and your guests to remember that a request is a suggestion and should be something that benefits the whole party and not just one individual unless you are the Bride/Groom!
Should one of your guests request a heavy metal song at an all-country music event, we may politely tell them that it probably does not fit with the crowd, or we may simply play it later in the evening when it is more suitable.
We can take requests verbally, on our pen and paper request forms we place on all the tables, or our contact free scannable QR code.
