Late 90s-early 00s hip hop! Probably because I was in college 2001-2005 so those songs were the soundtrack to most of the best dance parties of my life.

Honestly they’re so incredibly cheesy, but no one started dancing much at my wedding until the infamous line dances came on like the Cha Cha Slide and The Wobble. For some reason, knowing the moves to a song helps people loosen up a bit and not feel so self conscious. I wouldn’t necessarily say you have to have those songs, but they’re good to have on the line up if you notice people are hesitant to dance.

Not a dancer but Prince’s “Kiss” gives me the urge to dance every time, in fact I danced it at some point during my wedding. Agree with the 90’s hip hop. I’m more into music from the 60’s-80’s but that stuff is so enjoyable at a party, we included Biggie smalls. Also not a fan but Drake got EVERYONE on the dance floor, so absolutely include Drake, haha.

I found it incredibly helpful to browse through the playlists on APW to find stuff. I was trying to find the spreadsheet I did with my DJ to share with you because our dance floor was packed the whole night but I guess I don’t have it anymore. 


Some faves though:

Get Low (this song is probably not wedding appropriate really but it’s a fave in my friend group – I made sure the DJ used the clean version)

Hot in Herre 

in da club

Mo Money Mo Problems

I feel like I’m really dating myself with these songs! ๐Ÿ˜‚

I’m in the upper quarter – agewise, of your guest list, so it would have to be slow for me. I don’t really dance (mostly hug and shuffle), but in the last few years I’ve danced to Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide,” Eric Clapton’s “Wonderful Tonight,” and I tried dancing to Van Morrison’s “Moondance” (but sucked, at that tempo).

Definitely songs from top 50’s! But knowing me I would be out there with 90’s-00 music like Spice Girls and BackStreet Boys. You could do some silly songs like Cotten Eyed Joe, a good ice breaker. Classic songs that everyone would know and could dance would be like Beat It, YMCA, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, Wanna dance with somebody.

Grease, Abba, 80s pop, Bruno Mars, Jackson 5, Michael Jackson, Mika, Whitney Houston, Bon Jovi, Bob Marley, Bryan Adams.  Just off the top of my head.

I love the Beatles, Billy Joel, Rod Stewart, Meatloaf, Joshua Kadison, Barry Manilow, Michael Bolton, The Eagles, and many more too, but not sure if it’s get up and dancie music or not.
