Trust your DJ

1. Give your DJ a list of song requests to work with, then let him do the rest. Their job is to read the crowd and keep the party bumpin, so let them work their magic.

Get the party started with your first dance

2. Getting people out on the dance floor is half the battle. Have your DJ invite other couples to join you towards the end of your first dance, then have him transition into a upbeat song to get the party going! Bonus: Don’t be shy! Crowds generally feed off each other’s energy, so this is perfect time to show case your favorite dance moves.

3. A little liquid courage can definitely help get the party started. Plan to have the bar near the dance floor and remember to enjoy responsibly! No one wants to see Uncle Ben face plant halfway through Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”.

Timing is key

4.  Once the party gets going, don’t interrupt it to cut the cake. Plan on having the cake cutting immediately after dinner as to avoid a potentially empty dance floor later. Bonus: Have an extra slice or two, because once you're done you can burn off all those dessert calories on the dance floor.

DON’T LET SORE FEET KILL THE VIBE   

5. Give your gals a break from their heels with a pair of flip flops, or even a pair of fancy flats. They make for an awesome wedding favor, and your family and friends will thank you later!

Choose a variety of songs

7. Have your DJ blast a variety of popular songs from throughout the decades. Your grandma just may surprise you. Bonus: If you want to avoid those cliche wedding songs, it's ok to make a list of songs you don’t want your DJ to play ahead of time.
