Wedding Song Selection Tips and Tricks!


Song Selection Articles and Tips for Your Wedding!

Song Selection Tips:

  • Stick fairly close to the lists below when choosing songs if you want your wedding guests to be dancing for a majority of the night.

  • This doesn’t mean you can’t add a song off of the lists but depending on the song it may kill the dance floor.
  • Use the cocktail hour to play songs you and your significant other enjoy that may or may not be well known to your guests.

  • Group dances like the Cupid Shuffle or Cha Cha Slide may drive you crazy, but they are automatic dance floor fillers for everyone of all ages.

  • Slower songs are also great additions that bring everyone onto the dance floor because most everyone knows how to slow dance.

  • The “Do Not Play List” should be fairly well thought about and filled out. Nothing worse than hearing (terrible band) when you hate (terrible band).

  • If you have people of multiple age groups attending make sure to select a few songs from multiple decades to make everyone happy.
