Ok lets play a little game to help me and Froggy out. Pretend you are a guest at our wedding (I WOULD invite you all if I could!) What are five songs you would like to hear played at my reception? Also please pick an additional two songs for the older crowd.
Criteria: They be clean songs. No cursing, drinking, sex mentioned. (Don’t want to cause Fiance to lose his ordination!)) They can be any genre. We want a good mix of rock, pop, country, etc.
Can’t wait to see what you pick 😀

Whitney Houston, I Wanna Dance With Somebody.
I know it’s only one, but it’s a goody! I will keep thinking 🙂 – I”m rubbish with this sort of thing.

Shout – Isley brothers (your older guests will like it b/c it’s older, and the younger crowd will think of Wedding Crashers)
Paradise City by Guns and Roses or Sweet Home Alabama by Lynyrd Skynyrd for your down home country folks.
Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO (not sure how PG-13 it is, but your younger crowd could love it) *music starts at 1:45 (ETA- Probably not appropriate lyrics, strike that)
Don’t Stop Believing by Journey. Always played, maybe overdone, but ALWAYS a singalong at the end of the night.

I second the vote for Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO, this song inspired our guests to start a danceoff that even my grandma participated in, it was hilarious! Actually reading the lyrics they sound bad, but when you’re listening to the song you don’t even understand most of those lines. Other songs that went over well that haven’t already been mentioned…
– Sweet Home Alabama
– Tonight Tonight by Hot Chelle Rae
– The Beatles in general…I prefer their older songs
– Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond, right era for older guests but the younger ones love fist pumping and shouting along with parts of the chorus, haha.
Gosh I’m having trouble coming up with more, now that I’m looking at lyrics it seems I have lots of songs that aren’t totally clean… Michael Buble is a good chocie for all ages. And I’m also going to second the suggestion of Journey, people LOVE singing along to Don’t Stop Believing.
