After all, the cake has been cut, the ceremony is over, and it’s time that everyone gets the possibility to party. Of course, you’ll want to pick some awesome wedding dance songs to dance to during this part of the reception.

When it comes to wedding dance songs, you’ll want to choose a tune for the first dance with the groom.

These are all vital dances, but when they are finished, you may be wondering what you should play for your guests to dance to.

If you are going to select wedding dance songs, there are a number of different aspects that you need to hold in mind when picking the most appropriate songs to keep the party going. First of all, you should make sure that you pick out a lot of different music so the older guests as well as the younger guests will find something that they prefer. When you choose out a variety of different songs, everyone will probably find something to their taste.

You surely want to avoid songs about ex-partners, having your heart broken, or going with a breakup. Make sure that you do not pick out wedding dance songs that anyone will find offensive as well. You do not want to upset them, but you do want to select out some fun songs so everyone will get out there and have fun dancing.

Some brides are a little afraid of selecting cheesy wedding dance songs. Well, that’s all right. It’s your wedding, and it is totally all right to go with songs that may be a bit on the sappy side. Nobody will have a problem with these songs. Just don’t make them all cheesy.

It’s a great idea to pick some wedding dance songs that really make you get up and dance. You see, the tunes that no one can hear and sit still. There are a variety of great songs out there that are sure to get everyone dancing. Some examples are “Straight Up,” by Paula Abdul, “Footloose” by Kenny Loggins, “Crazy in Love” by Beyonce, “Get the Party Started” by Pink, and “Walk Like an Egyptian” by the Bangles.

For the older guests, you’ll want a few older wedding dance songs. Songs such as “Be My Baby” by the Ronettes, “Come Fly with Me” by Frank Sinatra, and “Twist” by Chubby Checker. Some cheesy and fun songs are perfect too, such as “Shake Your Booty,” “Who Let the Dogs Out,” “It’s Raining Men,” and “Whip It.”
