Wedding Reception Playlists – Do These Songs Really Have A Place On Them?

We all know that the idea of a wedding reception is that you get the chance to dance around to some truly lame songs and not worry about who is watching.

However, that said, just because some cheese is going to be on the menu, there is a limit to how much brie you can bring to the party.

There are some songs that a must play at any wedding, however, it seems that a growing amount of couples are also deciding that there are a number of tunes that really do not have a place on any wedding evening playlist.

So, what are these songs and is really for the best that they don’t make an appearance during the celebrations?

Oops up-side your head

Now, we have all, in our time, heard this song and decided that it is a great idea to throw ourselves on the floor and join in.

But when they have spent so much money out on their wedding outfits, will your guests be willing to get on the floor and show their best shimmy to this tune?

Chances are, probably not, which means that maybe the time has come to remove this from the wedding playlist.

The Macarena

There are plenty of people who love nothing more than getting in a line and showcasing their very best Macarena moves, however, it can also be a tune that makes people want to run for the hills.

Whilst it may be a disco classic, we think that perhaps it is time to give this one a miss.

Dancing Queen

The thing about Abba is that, in the most part, they do seem to be a bit of a crowd pleaser, however, with that comes the knowledge that their songs are a little toe-curling.

Especially Dancing Queen.

Of course, this track is a sure fire way to get some of the older guests on the dancefloor.

But all at the risk of ruining some of your street cred as you do it.

Not exactly something that you are going to want to happen.

We have had a bit of fun with this list, however, the thing to remember is that your wedding reception is just that, entirely yours.

If there are some songs that you don’t want to be played, then make sure you make this known, equally, if you think that some of these cheese-tastic tracks are a must have for your reception then include them, after all, you know what is going to get you on the dance floor (and hopefully your guests following you) better than anyone.
