DIY reception music help?!?

by DIY wedding planner on March 13, 2012

Ok. Y’all have been helpful with my DIY wedding issues so far. This has been the most stressful one so any advice is appreciated! We are creating play lists for our wedding reception. I have an awesome stereo system that holds an i-pod and has already been tested for quality sound. Now collaborating these play-lists is whats obnoxious. I want clean fun music this is especially hard when searching for upbeat dance music. Any song ideas or maybe experience in making a wedding play-list?

I’ve been planning the whole thing myself too! Its an 4 days and I have been freaking out but anyway! Here is what I’m playing, our wedding is jungle themed, go with songs that fit your theme if you have one. None of these have cuss words, they are all easily danceable, a lot are newer and popular so people know it but not TOO popular. Whatever you do don’t play stupid Lets Get This Party Started by Black Eyed Peas so overplayed!!! Good luck <3

Oooohhh! I love the suggestion of the poster before me for The Lion Sleeps Tonight- great, fun song:)

Here are some clean, fun dancey songs I can think of off the top of my head:

Praise You- Fatboy Slim
One More Time- Daft Punk
Friday I’m in Love- The Cure
Run Around Sue
Could You Be Loved- Bob Marley
Stray Cat Strut- Brian Setzer
Everybody Dance Now if you guys have a sense of humor;)
The Monster Mash
Steal My Sunshine- by someone named Len, apparently.
*Forget* You- Cee Lo Green, shouldn’t be too hard to get this version of the song, since it’s what’s played on the radio
Sweet Dreams- Eurythmics
Umbrella- Rhianna- if you’re into that sort of thing.
Material Girl- Madonna
Billie Jean- Michael Jackson

Hope any of those were helpful;)
