Revealed: the 15 songs that will definitely get your wedding guests on the dancefloor


Written by Katie Byrne


Plus, the five that DJs recommend you definitely don't play at your reception...

 

A new poll has uncovered the best - and worst - songs to guarantee getting your wedding guests on the dancefloor.

The playlist can be one of the trickiest elements of planning a wedding, with the perfect selection of tunes having the power to keep your nearest and dearest dancing all night long.

45 song ideas for your first dance

However, whilst it may sound like a simple task, the reality is you need to pick music that will appeal to a wide range of age-groups, without offending anyone, as well as matching your own personal preferences.

Bit of a tall order then, no?

However, this new study might be able to give you a head-start when it comes to choosing the perfect tunes. 

Research conducted by BidVine.com saw 1,400 wedding DJs surveyed about the music they play at couples' celebrations, with the poll focussing on the tunes that got people on the dancelfoor. 

25 brilliant songs to end your wedding reception in style

Russ Morgan, co-founder of BidVine.com, commented: "It appears to be a real worry for brides and grooms on what type of music to play at their wedding. After all most weddings have a variety of guests, ranging from older grandparents to young kids, so it’s hard to pick music that will appeal to everyone. From what our DJs have said in our guide a good mix of music artists from different decades is key, along with family friendly, well-known songs to get people up and moving".

This is the artist you're most likely to pick for your first dance song  

And the top 15 most popular songs are...

Jackson 5 – I Want You Back

Queen – Don’t Stop Me Now

The Killers – Mr. Brightside

The Fratellis – Chelsea Dagger

Michael Jackson – Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough

Five – Everybody Get Up

Junkie XL & Elvis Presley – Little Less Conversation

Pharrell Williams – Happy

Bruno Mars – Uptown Funk

David Bowie – Let’s Dance
