Reception Songs Your Wedding DJ Should Play in 2022 and 2023


So many couples go through the process (and in many cases struggle) of putting together a playlist for their wedding reception. It’s always good to have a general idea of the type of music you want to be played at your wedding at the very least. Of course, you’ll need to come up with the first dance song, entrance song, and those important songs during your reception. However, it’s never a bad idea to put together at least a handful of songs you want your DJ to play during your Orlando wedding reception in 2022 and 2023 to keep your wedding guests dancing all night long!

Songs Your Orlando DJ Should Play At Your Wedding Reception in 2022 & 2023

There are many songs you can choose from when putting together a playlist for your open dance. Luckily, when it comes to your wedding, you can pick songs to play from almost any decade of music since there will be so many different ages coming from your guest list. Plus, there are plenty of people who enjoy the classics at a wedding. Whether they’re coming from your friend list or your family, we know these wedding reception songs will be a hit.

The amount of music you can choose from feels endless! So, we put a list together to help you create the perfect wedding reception playlist. Here are a few genres and song examples for each to get you started:

Latin Songs

We’re in Orlando after all, so there are bound to be plenty of couples looking to add some Latin music to their wedding reception playlist! However, there are so many different types and genres of Latin music including Salsa, bachata, merengue, and reggaeton.

Trust us, there’s plenty of room for all of these genres at your wedding in Orlando! Here are some of our favorites to get you and your guests onto the dance floor.

2000’s Hip Hop

The 2000s is maybe the best decade of hip/hop when it comes to producing songs that will get you moving! You may not see many people blasting Lil Jon anymore when driving around Orlando, but you might certainly want some of those vibes during your open dance.

2000s hip hop was simply fun with blaring horns and loud, energetic MCs. This may have been the most hyped-up hip hop has ever gotten and it brings a celebratory vibe to your reception! Here are our favorite hip-hop songs from the 2000s to include during your open dance.

Top 40’s & Pop

Okay, so these songs might not all be in the Top 40s at the VERY moment, but we’re including music that was very popular at one time and fits into the “Pop Music” category. These might be from the 1970s, or from last week, the point is that these songs are that they’re all fun, widely attractive to a lot of people, and they bring an upbeat vibe to your reception. Here are our top pop songs to play at your wedding reception:

  • “Party in The USA” by Miley Cyrus
  • “Love Shack” by the B-52’s
  • “Uptown Funk” by Bruno Mars
  • “Can’t Stop The Feeling” by Justin Timberlake

Country Music

Country isn’t a genre you’ll want to play the entire night as it doesn’t necessarily always fit that “party vibe”. However, it is a perfect palate cleanser when you’re hearing loud, party music all night and can make for some of the best slow dance or sing-along songs possible during an open dance.

You don’t have to be the biggest country fan in the world to grab someone and head to the dance floor to rock a quick slow dance. This is a great time to get some energy back or enjoy a moment to hit the bar while the party subdues a bit. Rest up for a minute before getting back into the high energy of the rest of the playlist.

Country music in your 2022 wedding reception playlist is perfect to mix into the playlist here and there. Here are our top Country Music Songs:

Top Country Wedding Songs

  • “I Cross My Heart” by George Strait
  • “Fishin’ in The Dark” by Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
  • “I Loved Her First” by Heart Land
  • “God Gave Me You” by Blake Shelton
