The Most Modern Of Wedding Playlists

Whilst every wedding reception wouldn’t be complete without some classics being played, every good quality wedding DJ knows that they need to move with the times.

This is why you may see more and more modern songs featuring on wedding playlists.

If you are planning your wedding, and want to make sure that everyone dances the night away, then we have put together our playlist of some of the modern hits of today, that are sure to become classics of tomorrow!

Say You Won’t Let Go – James Arthur

Perhaps it is the lovely acoustic backing, or the modern take on romantic lyrics.

But there is something pretty touching about this awesome track.

We are sure that the majority of couples out there can relate to the lyrics, and it is a sure fire way to get people up and swaying as the evening comes to a close.

Cheerleader – OMI

This catchy tune was a hit when it was released, and is still a great way to get the dancefloor packed on your wedding day.

Adults and kids alike won’t be able to resist getting down to this awesome track, and you are sure to have everyone singing along and smiling.

Shut Up and Dance – Walk the Moon

As the name of the track suggests, this is another great way to make sure that your guests are ready to bust some moves on the dancefloor.

Fun, funky and great for a boogie, this is proving to be a top track for weddings of late!

All of Me – John Legend

Who doesn’t love the soothing melody of this track, or the lovely lyrics?

You will be hard pressed to find anyone.

Whether you have this as your first dance, or as a slow dance later on in the night, this is a must for any wedding reception.

Cake By The Ocean – DNCE

We all love a good party tune, and if you are looking for a modern take on a dance classic, then this is a pop tune that you need to have playing.

Perfect for the middle of the night, when everyone is really getting into the groove, just make sure that your DJ has the radio edit playing, otherwise you could find yourselves in trouble!

Sorry – Justin Bieber

This is one that we are not even sorry for picking.

The Bieber is proving himself to no longer be a guilty pleasure, but more of a popular and established act.

This party tune perfectly encapsulates his transformation, and is a must for a modern wedding playlist!

Can’t Stop The Feeling – Justin Timberlake

If you have kids under the age of 10 then chances are that you will have heard this song more than once on the Trolls film, for everyone else this is a feel good party tune that graced the radio during the summer of 2016.

Not only is this a great song, but it is also a fantastic way to get the smaller of your guests up and dancing.

So, there you have it. Some of the modern tunes that are becoming a staple part of wedding receptions.

Whether you opt for some or all of them, one thing is for sure, you will have some awesome tunes and a pretty packed dancefloor!
