After you’ve said your, “I do’s,” you’ll want to make sure you have a playlist with hits keeping your party alive. We’ve all been to the wedding where there’s a few kids ranging from 3-5 on the dance floor and the rest of your guests planted in their seats after dinner. You don’t want that, I don’t want that….no one wants that! Make sure your playlist is memorable. Below we’ve listed jams sure to keep your wedding party moving.
Uptown Funk – Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars
Hey Ya! – OutKast
Shout – The Isley Brothers
Don’t Stop Belevin – Journey

Be sure to keep it light and fun. We’re not saying the above playlist is a solve all, but it’s definitely a starting point. You know your guests….what gets them excited and moving?Since we’re not all teenagers, the old hits are always great to get people in that nostalgic, feel good mood. The better the vibe, the higher the energy, the more happy bodies on your dance floor! Of course, having an open bar always helps too, ha.
Pro Tip: At rehearsal mention to your wedding party that you want to make sure your guests feel happy and welcome. Request their help with that. It only takes 1 person letting loose on the dance floor to get people out of their shy bubble.
