Most Requested Wedding Songs - Music Monday

Posted on 17 June, 2013 at 9:35

At Essence of Events, LLC we have had over 20 years of experience in the wedding industry, which means that not only have we planned a lot of weddings, but of course we have been at every reception we have coordinated.

Over the years, although tastes in décor have changed, music still seems to gravitate back to some great classics, and some fun party songs too (Gangnam Style, anyone?). Today we are going to share 25 of the most requested wedding songs of all time, in no particular order.

“Bust a Move” by Young MC

“Celebration” by Kool and the Gang

“Dancing Queen” by ABBA

“Don’t Stop Believin’” by Journey

“Don’t Stop the Music” by Rihanna

“Electric Slide” by Marcia Griffiths

“Footloose” by Kenny Loggins

“Forever” by Chris Brown

“Girls Just Want to Have Fun” by Cyndi Lauper

“Give Me Everything” by Pitbull

“Gotta Feeling” by Black Eyed Peas

“I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” by Aerosmith

“I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz

“Just Dance” by Lady Gaga

“Let’s Stay Together” by Al Green

“Marry Me” by Train

“Party Rock Anthem” by LMFAO

“Shout” by Isley Brothers

“Single Ladies” Beyoncé

“Summer of ‘69” by Bryan Adams

“Sweet Caroline” by Neil Diamond

“The Way You Look Tonight” by Frank Sinatra

“Thriller” by Michael Jackson

“Tik Tok” by Ke$ha

“YMCA” by Village People

As you may have noticed, these songs range from genre to generation, and from style to suitability for age ranges, so when you are selecting music for your wedding make sure you play a variety too. Put some slow songs on to give your guests a break, but try not to pick too many so the reception doesn’t get boring.

Make sure to play an assortment of music toward the beginning of the reception to please all the generations in attendance, and then toward the middle and end of the night tailor it to the people who are still there (mostly your friends, so the music can get a little wilder).
