do not play list

You want to create the right atmosphere at your reception.  Music always sets the mood.  Of course you will select your first dance song, father/daughter dance, mother/son, cake & so on but you may want to make a list of what NOT to play.  Be sure to pass a do not play list along to your DJ or band.

This is a work in progress but a few bad/inappropriate songs come to mind that you probably do not want to hear at your reception!

  • Who Let the Dogs Out by Baha Men – not only overplayed but referencing “dogs” is not flattering
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady by Aerosmith – self explanatory
  • My Humps by Black Eyed Peas - keep your humps under raps until the honeymoon
  • I Write Sins Not Tragedies (what a beautiful wedding) by Panic at the Disco – this is about infidelity at a wedding, yikes
  • Holler Back Girl by Gwen Stefani – if you don’t know what a “holler back girl” is, your wedding day is not the time to learn
  • My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion – umm, this song is for her boyfriend who died in the titanic
  • Low (Apple Bottom Jeans) by T-Pain/Flo Rida – no need to get low at the reception
  • Anything Flo Rida for that matter
  • The Macarena by Los del Rio Boys – sooo overplayed
  • White Wedding by Billy Idol – pretty sure this a drug reference
  • Every Breath You Take by the Police - stalker!
What did I miss?
