The music genre and songs that the bride and groom like are all that the DJ needs to know. However, the couple may not want to play generic wedding songs like Cha Cha Slide or Cupid Shuffle. This is where the DJ gets down to learning the vibe of the wedding. There are a lot of songs that go great with wedding reception dances. With the help of your Complete Weddings DJ, you and your wedding party can help bring the crown together.
Classic Movie Dances for Everyone
Your DJ can bring out the big guns that will get the old generation with the new generation with classic songs from classic movies. For example, Twist and Shout from The Beatles in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Your DJ can also allow all the couples in the reception to feel like Baby and Johnny from Dirty Dancing by playing on Hungry Eyes. Most classic dance movies have a song that everyone can dance to. It doesn’t take long to learn, it just takes a few minutes to get grooving. Just ask your DJ to help get the wedding reception dances going!
Classic Songs Everyone May Know
Do the bride and groom want something that is a bit easier for everyone to dance to but is also a classic?. Complete DJs have the perfect hits for you. Learn the choreography of We Are Family by Sister Sledge. This is a fun disco group dance. Head over to Youtube and search for “We are Family choreography” to learn the moves. The bride and groom might also request Conga by Gloria Estefan, Miami Sound Machine to get everyone shaking and dancing. Your DJ can make it easier by putting on The Twist by Chubby Checker and having everyone move their hips. Yes, even grandma can boogie with this wedding reception dance!
Classic Country Songs
The newly married couple may want to stick with country songs and line dances all night long. However, they may not want to play generic country songs like Any Men of Mine or Boot Scootin’ Boogie. Ask your DJ to turn up Louisiana Saturday Night by Mel McDaniel and have the old generation teach the new one and line dance. The DJ can also put on Watermelon Crawl by Tracy Byrd and get everyone to clap if they don’t feel like dancing. For a classic country wedding, don’t let your DJ forget to play Good Times by Alan Jackson. This will have everyone moving their boots across the dance floor.
Classic Hip-Hop songs
Your DJ can get grandma up and dance to One Dance by Drake featuring Wizkid. Also, your DJ can take it all the way back to the 1990s and teach your wedding guests the dance to It’s Gonna Be Me by NSYNC. This will have everyone dancing like they are the ones on stage instead of NSYNC. Ask your DJ to play Yeah! By Usher or Wannabe by The Spice Girls to let the crowd dance freely side by side.
The bride and groom have big decisions to make for the big day. Oftentimes the pressure is on to make the wedding look like the ones on the big screen. However, their music choice is for their personal taste and the taste of everyone that came to celebrate with them.
