If you can believe it, 2014 is almost here. That means a new lineup of wedding seasons is almost upon us. So whether you're planning a wintery wedding or summertime ceremony, you're going to want to equip your DJ with a playlist that's guaranteed to get every guest up and on the dance floor. That's why I reached out to DJ Staci Nichols for an inside look at the Top 10 Must Play Songs for 2014 Weddings. Here's what she had to say...

If dancing is a high priority at your wedding, remember to consider what will result in the highest amount of “crowd pleasing” when you type up a playlist for your DJ—some old, some new, some fast, some slow. Hire a wedding DJ you can trust with your song selections and to read your crowd as well. Your DJ's expertise + 10-15 of your must-play song preferences = the perfect balance for dancing the night away!
