Country music. It went on the do not play list in big bold capital letters.

We also vetoed the group dances like YMCA, chicken dance, macarena, etc.

No hokie pokie! Yes, I actually was at a wedding that played this. I felt like I was in elementary school.

We had one song on our do not play list, and that is Sweet Caroline.  We are huge Yankees fans, and we even walked into the reception to New York, New York.  A lot of our relatives are Red Sox fans.  I would have screamed if I had to hear Sweet Caroline.

Cotton Eye Joe.  Hands down, my number one choice for annoying song at weddings.  Who decided that even qualified for a wedding playlist?  Eww.

No YMCA.

We’re not banning country music (there will be a few songs), but we’re not doing like EVERY other wedding I’ve attended this year, where they had ALL country.  I mean, literally ALL country.

NO Sugarland attempting to rap (Stuck like glue).  Yeah, I’m sure if you’ve gone to a wedding in recent years, you know what I’m talking about.

We will not be doing our first dance to a cheesy, 80s, Luther Vandross song.  My step-cousin didn’t pick a first dance song, and “Here and Now” is what the DJ chose.  Really?

Butterfly Kisses.  I HATE that song.  My father and I are dancing to “Mack the Knife”.

Single Ladies.  At EVERY wedding I’ve been to this year, the bouquet toss has been to “Single Ladies”.  It makes sense, yes, but it’s so played out!

@GroovyHippieChick: Strokin by Clarence Carter is guaranteed to make me laugh at a moment’s notice, but not appropriate for a reception. Thanks for making me laugh at my desk. I love that song!

Wow you ladies are picky! The only do not play songs on our list were the hokey pokey and chicken dance.

PLAY THAT FUNKY MUSIC WHITE BOY.
I WILL VOMIT, THEN THROW A VASE.

Also, I really hate line dances. And if you have to have a song that says “CELEBRATE GOOD TIMES, COME ON!” to indicate that “there’s a party goin’ on right here!”, it probably isn’t a party.

@GroovyHippieChick: Lol!

I agree with a lot of these suggestions.  I’m going to try to limit the swearing/bitches ‘n’ ho’s songs since we’ll be having a LOT of older people at our wedding.

Too bad, since I would have LOVED to do a bouquet toss to “Move, Bitch” by Ludacris, hahaha.
