Just Press Play Productions

the leader in providing professional iPod DJ services in Chicago, Hawaii and San Antonio

Here are the playlists we recommend you have:


  • Pre-Ceremony

  • Processionals

  • Ceremony (Songs played during Ceremony.  If more than one, make individual playlists for those songs.)

  • Recessional

  • Cocktails

  • Introductions

  • Cake Cutting

  • Dinner

  • First Dance

  • ​Father/Daughter Dance

  • Mother/Son Dance

  • Fast Dance

  • ​Slow Dance

  • Last Dance


And of course if you are having a Bouquet and Garter Toss, you should have a Playlist for each of those along with any other events you decide to have during your wedding.

Label your playlists with the same name and numerically. Example: Wed1-PreCeremony, Wed2-Ceremony, Wed3-Cocktails, Wed4-Dinner, Wed5-Specials, Wed6-Fast Dance, Wed7-Slow Dance.You can also create playlists in between like this: Wed2.1-Processional, Wed2.2-Recessional, Wed3.1-Introductions, Wed4.1-Cake Cutting, Wed5.1-First Dance, Wed5.2-Father Daughter, Wed5.3-Mother Son, Wed6.1-Last Dance.

You can never make too many playlists.  The more playlists the better!

This is the least Playlists you will need:


  • Ceremony

  • Cocktails

  • Special Songs (Introductions, First Dance, Bouquet Toss, Last Song, etc.)

  • Dinner

  • Fast Dancing

  • Slow Dancing 

In the end it would look like this:

Wed1-Pre Ceremony
Wed2-Ceremony
Wed2.1-Processional
Wed2.2-Recessional
Wed3-Cocktails
Wed3.1-Introductions
Wed4-Dinner
Wed4.1-Cake Cutting
Wed5-Specials
Wed5.1-First Dance
Wed5.2-Father Daughter
Wed5.3-Mother Son
Wed6-Fast Dance
Wed6.1-Last Dance
Wed7-Slow Dance

GREAT TIP:  Always get your music players as early as possible to the venue.  This will allow whoever is connecting your player to the speaker system, time to get it connected, sounding good, and have some time with your player and playlists before the wedding starts.
