Rainy weather, a smashed cake, wilted flowers… these are all nightmare scenarios that race through the minds of stressed couples planning their wedding.
But the one thing causes the most anxiety for fun-loving couples to think about?
An empty dance floor at their reception!!!
That’s why we turned to the people who attend weddings like it’s their job, our Perfect Wedding Guide vendors, and asked them to share the songs that they see guests jamming out to.
Read, add to your playlist, and relax.
According to the photographers…
Photographers attend weddings all season long, and sometimes even more than one each weekend.
“Despacito” by Louis Fonsi featuring Daddy Yankee
“I think most people can name the most popular top 40 songs at any given time, whether they enjoy top 40 or not, and there’s always that one song every summer that somehow becomes the anthem. Year after year it’s that song that will get people on the dance floor.”
“Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen
“In my experience, the song of the summer is not limited to just the current one, but any song of the summer from prior years. This one still draws people onto the dance floor.”
“Shout” by The Isley Brothers
“People love it. The dance floor is always packed when this comes on.”
“I’ve Gotta Feeling” by Black Eyed Peas
“The average age of my couples is 26 and older. Their friends, cousins, aunts, and uncles all hit the dance floor with a mix of current music, a line dance or two thrown in there along with wedding staples like Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Bon Jovi. Too many oldies and you lose everyone except that one couple who just dances to dance.”
What are the songs that you see packing the dance floor?
