Fun WEDDING Songs of any Genre

Fun Wedding Reception Songs

Ok, I do not want my hub to be flagged substandard, so let me add a couple of more suggestions. Although, if you are hiring a DJ I'm sure he'll have a nice list of his own to add to the evening. Of course he or she has to play "your song" for this special occasion, but a waltz is what the bride and groom are usually greeted with upon entering the reception.

Hmmm, here are some suggestions for fun wedding songs. Hope they're useful.

1.Rock n' Roll All Night - Kiss

2.Fascination - Alphabeat

3.Please Don't Tell Her - Jason Mraz

4.Closer- Ne-yo

5.Funky Bahia-Sergio Mendes Ff. Will I Am

6.Our time now- Plain White Ts

7.Should I stay or should I go- The Clash

8. Mercy (Release Me)- Duffy

9.Divine- Sebastien Tellier

10.Birthday Girl- The Roots

11.Ready to Run- Dixie Chicks

12.Shake that Body-Technotronic

13.The Good Life-Kanye West

14.Breathe & Stop- Q-Tip

15.Word Play-Jason Mraz

16. 10,000 nights of thunder - Alphabeat

17. This Kiss-Faith Hill

18. Single Ladies(Put a ring on it!)- Beyonce

19. Sexy Back-Justin Timberlake

20. Hot N Cold-Katy Perry

21. Everything-Michael Buble

22. Baby I Love Your Way-Big Mountain

23. I melt with you-Modern English

24. Wild Thing-Tone Loc

25. Into the groove or Vogue-Madonna

26. Murder on the dance floor-Sophie Ellis Bexter

27. Inner Smile-Texas

28. You're the one that I want- Olivia Newton John & John Travolta

29. Wild Thing- X

30. Everybody (Dance Now)- C+C Music Factory

31. Twist and Shout- The Beatles

32. Touch Me- Cathy Dennis

Then of course there's achy breaky heart(they played this one at my wedding-ouch!), the macarena, the lambada, the conga (miami sound machine), hot hot hot(Buster Pointdexter), etc....

Off the subject of fun wedding songs, here are a couple of slow songs that are sure to set the right mood:

1. At Last -Etta James

2. The way you look tonight- Frank Sinatra

3. Unforgettable- Nat King Cole

4. Truly, Madly, Deeply-Savage Garden

5. You're Beautiful-James Blunt

6. Crush-Dave Matthews Band

7. Something About The Way You Look Tonight-Elton John

8. When the Lights Go Down In the City-Journey

9. When a man loves a woman-Michael Bolton

10. You've got a way-Shania Twain

11. Groovy kind of love-Phil Collins

12. Last Request-Paolo Nutini

13. Under my skin-Diana Krall

Could I Have This Dance – Anne Mur


I want a cheap wedding 5 years ago

I think the whole funny wedding song thing is great, but it really depends on your personality and the guests who will be attending your wedding.

Personally I would have loved to really go for it with funny songs but the majority of our guests were a little older and a bit traditional. That said we did introduce a few funny songs throughout the evening. My other half wanted me to come into the service to "Another one bites the dust" by Queen. But we came to the conclusion that our older guests might not get it.

We did use Beyonce - "Single Ladies" (as this is sure to be a wedding classic in the future) and lots of others.

"Another One Bites The Dust", that's hilarious. I think it's becoming the norm for couples getting married these days to incorporate a funny song to the cermony. My sister is getting married this July and she had mentioned she wanted us bridesmaids to dance "Ice Ice Baby". I'll let you know how that goes. And you're so right about the more traditional,serious guests- Funny just isn't for everyone.
