Finding the Perfect Wedding Reception Music

Updated on July 16, 2014

Music can set the mood for your entire wedding reception. While a reception is being planned, any deejay worth his salt will ask for a playlist of songs for special events and that absolutely need to be played. This article is jam-packed with suggestions and links to music videos to help plan your perfect reception soundtrack.

Bridal Introduction

The bridal introduction should symbolize the happy couple: laid back, classy, or playful. Do you want your wedding party entering the room with the flourish of a tango? Do you want everyone to walk in waving like Miss America, or do you want a fun-filled dance routine to LMFAO's "I'm Sexy and I Know It?"

Daddy/Daughter & Mother/Son Dance

Mothers and fathers have the biggest impact, good or bad, on their children's lives. The tradition of the Daddy/Daughter and Mother/Son Dance pays homage to the individuals who helped with homework, stayed up late crafting Halloween and school play costumes, played chauffeur to sports games, and provided support throughout the years.

Group Dance

A wedding isn't just about the happy couple (although it mainly is). It is also about the people that got them there: the friends that introduced the bride and groom, the friends who held back hair after nights of drinking, and the friends who helped keep the couple sane as they planned the wedding. Honor these friends with group dances and dedications that will mean something and create memories.

Keeping things lively

A wedding is about bringing two people together. A reception is a party to celebrate said couple. The key word here is party. There are some songs like "The Chicken Dance" and "YMCA" that need to be played to get people off their butts and onto the dance floor.
