Technically the wedding ceremony where you actually tie the knot is the most important part of the day. Secretly, every guest knows that a good party to end the night and make memories that last forever is what they’re really looking forward to.

There’s no better feeling than all your favourite people gathered in one room, dancing and singing along – which is why you need an epic wedding reception playlist. Crowd-pleasers, singalong ballads, air guitar-worthy rock hits, a little hip-hop, a few golden oldies and some romantic slow songs: a mix of these is what keeps the party atmosphere going.

Choose a selection from these party songs and our best wedding songs of all time and you’ll be struggling to get guests off the dancefloor at the end of the night.

How to Create Your Wedding Party Playlist

How you put together your wedding party songs playlist is up to you. We recommend making a list of songs you love, listening through our playlist to find some classic wedding songs, and asking your guests. That might be through DJ requests on the night or a section on the wedding invite where they can add a song suggestion.

If you’re having a DJ, they’ll normally have ready-made playlists for your to choose and add to. Likewise a wedding band will have a repertoire and then they can learn a few more songs just for you. You can DIY your wedding music with a playlist if your venue has speakers you can use. The only thing to remember is that you’ll need enough songs – running out of music is a no-no!

That right balance means you get those special moments where your little cousin is teaching Grandad to floss to Katy Perry, and there are slower moments when your guests can sit down, have a drink, and then get back up when they hear a song they love.
