The Most Requested Wedding Songs You’ll Hear

Weddings are a time of joy.

They’re celebrating the union of two people who love each other very much, and that’s always a happy occasion.

Therefore, you’ll usually get some happy music requested of the DJs.

We’re going to be taking a look at some of the most common requests which we get from wedding guests.

Uptown Funk

This is something which is relatively recent but took both the wedding world and the rest of the world by storm.

It’s catchy, it’s got a good beat, and you get down and dance to it with ease.

It’s no wonder it’s requested by so many people at weddings.

Cha Cha Slide

It doesn’t matter what generation you were born in; everyone knows this.

It’s a joyful and energetic tune, which requires you to form lines and follow the instructions given in the song.

It’s a lot of fun and gets people excited and in the mood to groove.

Don’t Stop Believing

You’ve all heard this classic.

There are not many people in today’s society that don’t know this song and don’t know the words to it.

It’s a song that gets you shouting out to the rooftops and brings people together.

With a separate verse for the men and the women, it’s a joy to do and brings everyone together.

Shake It Off

Taylor Swift outdid herself on this one.

It’s loud, joyful and speaks about not caring what anyone else thinks, and being happy regardless.

The lyrics aren’t hard to pick up, and it’s something which will be popular with the younger generation for sure.


This incredible film spawned one of the most well-known songs.

Footloose is a good one for when you want just to cut loose and dance the night away, as the main character did.

It’s one of those fantastic songs which is right at home at a wedding and encourages people to start grooving along and soaking up the atmosphere.

I Don’t Feel Like Dancing

Another happy and feel good song; this one has earned its place within a wedding atmosphere.

It’s lively, it doesn’t take itself seriously, and it’s perfect for dancing, once you get past the deceptive title.

Shut Up And Dance

Another one which is relatively new, Shut Up, And Dance is one which is great for people to groove to.

It’s got a lively beat, a quick pace and that sound that makes you just want to start moving.

It’s perfect for when everyone’s on the dance floor and wants to have a good time.

Overall, these are just a few of the most requested songs that you might hear at a wedding.

They’re all happy and lively songs, which is perfect for the atmosphere which a lot of weddings naturally carry.

You want to be happy, and you want to be able to sing, dance and have the time of your life.

Two people just got married, so it’s the time to celebrate.

These are some of the best songs to do it with because they’re happy, lively and feel good tracks.
