Finally, select songs that are personal to you for your wedding. It is YOUR wedding. I remember going to the local bar growing up and listening to Fat Bottom Girls with friends. The song would make a great dedication to the groom’s friends from the groom and would fill the dance floor. Be sure to discuss with your DJ songs like this that have meaning and a great DJ will incorporate the song at the perfect moment.
