Shout- Isley Brothers. Wait till people are a little loosened up, and they’ll get out there and jump and wiggle down and have a blast, especially the ones that’ve seen Wedding Crashers.

Also, Bad Romance by Lady Gaga got the ENTIRE wedding (grandma and ringbearer included) out on the floor at the last wedding I was at. Lots of little monsters hiding out there. 😉

@Bichon Frise:  Moves like Jagger… great song if you don’t listen to the words. Not sure what the older crowd will think… though THEY can’t hear well.

I love love love old classics at weddings when the evening is just starting off and people aren’t really ready to full out dance yet – anything Frank Sinatra is so classy at a wedding for a slower dance song choice! Once people are out on the dance floor, Shout is such a great song to get everyone going. Some of my liveliest, funnest dancing times at a wedding has been to Shout!

@cant.wait.to.be.mrs.d:  I love to save those for a couple hours into the wedding…the more folks loosen up, the louder they sing. LOL.

I’d never in my life heard the ‘Who the [email protected]*# is Alice’ until 11:30 at a wedding dance where people had gotten rather drunk..it was HILARIOUS.  OP- if you like sing-a-long songs, I’d throw in ‘Mony Mony’ and ‘F*#& You Gently’ (if your crowd is younger, they’ll likely know that song). There was a spontaneous sing-a-long at the bar once to ‘F*&# You Gently’ (of course when I’d brought my mom and her friends out for a drink) but they thought it was a riot! And ending on ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ will lead to lots of scream singing and hugging. Haha.
