Want to have a fun and energetic party at your wedding reception? This wedding reception songs list is a great start to the music that Boss Playa Productions Wedding DJs normally play.
This week's post comes from DJ Creativity, whose client list includes Beyonce, Jay Z, Jermaine Dupri and Ryan Leslie. He describes his style as "retro/future”, a seamless blend of old and new that translates well to wedding guests of all ages. "I love the challenge of crossing genres and generations and playing a diverse mix of music that's totally seamless. At the end of a wedding, I'd like the bride and the groom to be exhausted from dancing!" DJ Creativity is known for infusing any event with energy and cool vibes, while always keeping the client's musical preferences front and center in his music selection.
The work starts before the wedding; I try to get an idea the bride and groom’s musical tastes while also getting a sense of what their family and friends will enjoy.
Now the fun begins! After the formal dances have been completed, I like to invite all family and friends to come together on the dance floor. In the beginning of the wedding reception, I play a lot of popular music to get everyone involved in dancing. I like to mix it up with classic dance tunes and current hits.
I start by playing some classic party songs to get older family members on the dance floor first. For some reason, they aren’t afraid of not being cool! The younger fold usually filter in by the third or fourth song. The best part of starting the wedding reception off this way is watching different generations come together!
Here are some classic "must play" wedding reception songs that'll get everyone dancing.
