With millions of songs to choose from, it’s only natural that the couple would want to get it right on their big day, but their banned songs have sent TikTokers into fury – with some wondering if they ‘hate each other’ have fun.”
American DJ Matt ‘Rybar’ Hribar, known online as @hribstar, shared the list with his 29,200 followers as part of a series exposing wedding setlists.
The detailed list had specific songs and times for their special dances and, more importantly, their banned songs.
Sharing their list, Matt revealed their ‘don’t play’s, which were accompanied by the phrase: “Please, for the love of God, don’t play the following songs.”
A wedding DJ, known on TikTok as @hribstar, shared a couple’s list of ‘not to play’ songs at their wedding – but their choices sparked outrage on the app.
Not only did the couple ban Beyoncé’s Single Ladies, but Beyoncé’s entire discography.
In one point, the couple clarified that they didn’t want any songs performed by One Direction, Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars.
On the list, the couple indicated that they graduated in 2012, which Matt said was helpful in giving a better idea of the music they like.
He explained, “It’s kind of fun when couples give me this idea of like ‘hey, we went to college around this time,’ because then you can kind of take away what was playing at that time— there.”
Meanwhile, for their first dance, the bride and groom chose a “pretty common” song according to Matt which was “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Elvis Presley.
To cut the cake, they chose the folk song “How Sweet it is” by James Taylor and for the father and bride dance, they opted for the classic rock song “When You Need Me” by Bruce Springsteen.
In a video for part two, the DJ laid out the couple’s must-see tracks, which contained 35 songs spanning different genres.
The list included a diverse catalog ranging from Madonna’s “Hung Up” to the Bee Gees’ “Night Fever.”
The couple clarified that they graduated in 2012, asking the DJ to play “High School Danceathon” music from that era.
In their notes, they wrote: “Pretty much anything from Eminem, Lil Jon, Young Jeezy, Jason Derulo, etc.
“Think about the 2008-2012 High School Danceathon era,” they added, noting that country-pop and ’80s music are also favorites.
Since its publication, the video has garnered 1.6 million views and nearly 70,000 likes, with hundreds of TikTokers flooding the comments with very mixed opinions.
Many users were shocked that the couple completely banned Beyoncé from their wedding. One person wrote: “No Beyoncé and Bruno Mars? Do they hate having fun?
Another user commented, “When clients say no to Beyoncé, that’s an immediate red flag,” and one said, “My whole wedding was Beyoncé.”
Directors also flocked to the comments section, outraged that the band wasn’t in attendance at their wedding.
One person wrote: “One Direction needs to be played once every three songs at my wedding otherwise I’m suing, it’s crazy.” »
Others shared their own DJ horror stories, with many claiming their disc jockey completely ignored their song requests at the wedding.
One person wrote: “I said no to Maroon 5. They played Maroon 5 to cut the cake.”
