We picked the brains of DJ and MC Mike Steffens to get his insights on wedding song choices! 

Q. Mike, what are the top 3 songs people choose to walk down the aisle to?

1.  Canon in D Major – Pachelbel
2.  Can’t Help Falling In Love – Kina Grannis
3.  How Long Will I Love You – Ellie Goulding

Q. Anything particularly memorable you've seen at a wedding reception?

A special father/daughter dance where the dad mapped out the bride’s life in music. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room after that.

Q. Most requested song at wedding receptions?

Abba – Dancing Queen

Q. Advice to couples when picking a DJ?

Choose a DJ that you feel comfortable with – they will be with you on one of the most important days of your life. Take the time to talk to a few DJs before you book, to make sure you are both on the same page. Experience and understanding is key. A good DJ should be able to play to the guests and making sure it is entertaining and fun and at the right level. Some DJs can also be your MC (like me!). 

Q. The song guaranteed to get everyone OFF the dance floor?!

Any song chosen without reading the audience. This is the difference between a good DJ and a bad one! A poor DJ will clear the D Floor in no time.

Q. Advice to couples when picking their wedding music?


Q. Interesting first dance song choices?

When couples edit together multiple songs for a choreographed first dance, slipping in a few funny ones. A custom remix always makes for a special moment and they’re a real crowd pleaser! 

Q. Question goes here

Think about all of your guests. You are the hosts of an event and you want everyone to enjoy themselves so it’s important to have a good variety of music to cover all tastes.
