        I was wondering if anyone is doing fireworks, what song they are having play during them
        Hey Kathy!

        I'm pretty sure-- although not perfectly clear-- that the Dreams has actualy outlawed the use of fireworks at the resort. I would ask Rebeca about it the next time you're in contact. Bummer, I know...

            Thanks! These are all really great ideas for your Song Lists girls!
            Also ashey063009- Thank you for sharing that link to "secret wedding songs"...that was helpful!

            With a DJ--are we supposed to send him a list of songs we definitely want or don't want? Or are we supposed to let him play whatever? I think I may make a list and a CD with our faves that we definitely want played, in case he doesn't have them.
            Thoughts??

              Do not play list
              A do not play list is a list of dance songs specifically banned from being played. Many couples provide their bands or dj's with a do not play list.
              The most common songs on do not play lists are usually "cheesy" group dances:
              •"Chicken Dance"
              •"Hokey Pokey"
              •"Macarena" by Los del R­o
              •"YMCA" by the Village People
              •"The Electric Slide" by Marcia Griffith
              •Hot Hot Hot (Conga)
              •C'Mon 'N Ride It (Train Dance)
              •Cha Cha Slide

              Non group dance songs also make some "do not play" lists:
              •"Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix-a-Lot (popular for some weddings, banned at others!)

              •"Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy" by Big & Rich
              •"Redneck Woman"
              •"Brick House"
              •"Love Shack"
              •"A Whole New World"

              Many of these are objectionable due to massive overplay.
              "Do not play" lists may also include songs that carry particular significance from past dating relationships.

                Do not play list
                A do not play list is a list of dance songs specifically banned from being played. Many couples provide their bands or dj's with a do not play list.
                The most common songs on do not play lists are usually "cheesy" group dances:
                •"Chicken Dance"
                •"Hokey Pokey"
                •"Macarena" by Los del R­o
                •"YMCA" by the Village People
                •"The Electric Slide" by Marcia Griffith
                •Hot Hot Hot (Conga)
                •C'Mon 'N Ride It (Train Dance)
                •Cha Cha Slide

                Non group dance songs also make some "do not play" lists:
                •"Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix-a-Lot (popular for some weddings, banned at others!)

                •"Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy" by Big & Rich
                •"Redneck Woman"
                •"Brick House"
                •"Love Shack"
                •"A Whole New World"

                Many of these are objectionable due to massive overplay.
                "Do not play" lists may also include songs that carry particular significance from past dating relationships.

                    since i'm working on my wedding playlist for our AHR thought i'd revive this thread with our first cut of our songs. we have waaayy too many but we're working on cutting it down

                    it's split by genre, and then in about the order of when they would be played throughout the night (the ones at the top of the genre would be played early, and bottom of genre played late night)

                    FI and i have polar opposite musical tastes so the list is very umm...diverse. i'm a dance/rave person and he's a metal head. lol. back to downloading songs
