One of my favorite parts of a reception is dancing to the wedding music! How often do you get the opportunity to cut lose and show off your skills on the dance floor? Not since my younger days when I was a fixture on the club scene.

And even if you have two left feet, there is still the chance to slow dance with the bride’s grandmother or the flower girl, thus melting the hearts of all observers at the Los Angeles wedding venue. Such a touching scene will completely blind people to the fact that you don’t know a move beyond the “hands in front, shuffle side to side” beginner’s move.

But this is only possible if the bride and groom pick a good playlist, and the DJ plays them in a good order. You can’t just spin The Village People’s “YMCA” into Leona Lewis’ “Bleeding Love.” That sort of reckless DJ-ing will kill a party faster than poorly cooked fish!
