Top Wedding Reception Dance Songs. Getting It Right!

Dear reader, I have to be honest with you, planning the various elements of your wedding day  isn’t always  going be fun.  In fact, choosing the precise shade for the ushers’ ties to compliment the floral displays  can verge on the downright tedious!  The good news is that there are so many aspects of planning a wedding that you should revel  in. Afterall, when else to you get to sit down with a caterer  for a ‘taster session’ to  sample the sumptuous food you and your guests will be eating on the day?!  Similarly, you  should have fun choosing your wedding reception dance music . Yet so many couples find this a daunting prospect. This is about planning your wedding reception music, so put your stamp on the celebrations and make it your own. Choose some fun wedding reception songs!

 Top Wedding Reception Dance songs

Here are some tips to help you plan the best wedding reception ever!…….

1.       Think of those timeless, floor filling classic songs you’ve doubtless danced to at other parties. Which ones forced you onto the dancefloor? Ensure you include a health smattering of these in the playlist you give your DJ.

2.       Don’t hog the music!  – When I look back at the playlists at some of the best wedding receptions I’ve been a part of , they’ve featured a good mix of some of the bride and groom’s favourite tunes. However, they’ve also featured a healthy dose of songs requested by their friends and family and some of my own choices as well to gel the whole evening together.

3.       Choose your tracks carefully –  You and your guests should think of songs that you can dance to rather than songs you like to listen to.

4.       Take a little look at the Top 100 list below for some inspiration…..
