When planning a wedding, the dress, venue, flowers, and food are all important, but nothing makes or breaks a reception like the music. Whether you choose a band, DJ, or make a playlist yourself, with guests of all ages and preferences it can be hard to make sure everyone’s enjoying themselves on the dance floor. Worrying about whether the music is good is the last thing anyone wants to do on their wedding day so we’ve selected the best songs for a wedding that will make sure everyone gets up out of their seat, hits the dance floor and has the time of their lives.
If you have been to a couple of weddings throughout your whole life, you probably know more than of the songs that will be mentioned shortly. There are songs that they’re only considered “wedding songs” even though they have nothing to do with.
These are ten songs that you or a guest will ask for at least once:
- I Gotta Feeling – The Black Eyed Peas
“Tonight’s the night, let’s live it up // I got my money, let’s spend it up”
- I Want You Back – Jackson 5
“Oh darlin’, I was blind to let you go // But now since I see you in his arms // I want you back”
- Thinking Out Loud – Ed Sheeran
“Place your head on my beating heart // I’m thinking out loud // Maybe we found love right where we are”
- Happy – Pharrell Williams
“Because I’m happy // Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof”
“Shake it like a Polaroid picture”
- September – Earth, Wind & Fire
“As we danced in the night // Remember how the stars stole the night away”
“Stop, wait a minute // Fill my cup, put some liquor in it”
- Can’t Stop The Feeling – Justin Timberlake
“I got that sunshine in my pocket // Got that good soul in my feet”
- Don’t Stop Believing – Journey
“Just a small-town girl // Livin’ in a lonely world // She took the midnight train // Goin’ anywhere”
- Shut Up and Dance – Walk the Moon
“Oh don’t you dare look back // Just keep your eyes on me // I said you’re holding back // She said shut up and dance with me”
