Who better than actual DJs to advise on what to play on your special day? From wedding marches to receptions, check out what these married experts have to say — and no, there's none of that Sixpence None the Richer or Shania Twain business up their sleeves.

Casie Lane of Parental Control

When: "This song can seriously get you in the mood so if you are getting married, leave this one for the bedroom."

Darren Tan of Dubwise

When: "The first wedding dance. This has to be one of the greatest love songs by one of the greatest singers alive! The lyrics are about how a couple should support each other."

Cherry Chan of Syndicate

When: "Best played for the first wedding dance. This track from Jill Scott is one of my favourites. I love its tenderness."

Debbie Chia of Midnight Shift

When: "During the wedding reception when welcoming guests."

Kavan Spruyt of Midnight Shift

When: "Start of the wedding dance."

Ginette Chittick

When: "After the wedding speech when your husband least expects it! I used it as a surprise present to my husband Shawn when I gave my speech. I was nervous as hell, but it was heaps of fun."

Dean Chew of Darker Than Wax

When: "Best played at the start of the evening to create the perfect vibe. It's an all-time staple by the great J Dilla. Sublime and emotional."

Matt Law of Law & Order

When: "Can be played at anytime."

Maurice Simon, not married but open to the idea

When: "Last song of the night before everyone goes home."
