    What songs will get your wedding guests on the dancefloor?

     

    For me, there are a couple of really important aspects to a wedding reception, or indeed any good party. Good food and fabulous entertainment. Free flowing booze never hurts either!

    Wedding entertainment plays a big part and sets the atmosphere for the whole event, so it’s important to get it right.

    Today we have teamed up with Bidvine.com who surveyed 1,400 Bidvine.com DJs to find out which songs are best for getting your guests up and on the dancefloor.

    It came as no surprise that The Jackson 5 were top of the list!

    2.    Queen – Don’t Stop Me Now

    2. Queen – Another One Bites The Dust
    3. Rage Against The Machine – Killing In The Name
    4. The Righteous Brothers – You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling

    Do you agree with the DJs on this?

    What songs will get your wedding guests on the dancefloor? DJ

    Bidvine.com worked with its DJs to put together a handy guide on what you should consider when planning your wedding’s entertainment.

    • Consider the age group of your guests. If like most weddings, you have people who are going to be in their 60s/70s but also in their teens and 20s. Try and vary the music genre. Motown is always a hit with most age groups, but throw in a few modern classic hits.
    • Avoid explicit songs, if you have a few favourites that include swear words try and save them towards the end of the evening.
    • Limit the amount of slow songs you have in your playlist to 2 or 3 and spread them out through the night.
    • Avoid playing too many gimmicky songs like the Crazy Frog and the Macarena, they’re great for getting people up and moving, and children love them but keep them to a limit.
    • Get the special dances, such as the first and Father and Daughter dance, done early in the evening so guests can start dancing without too much interruption.
