11 DJ-Approved Songs That Are Guaranteed to Get Your Guests on the Dance Floor



The last thing any couple wants to see at their wedding reception—aka the biggest party they’ll ever plan—is a bunch of guests parked in their seats when they should be celebrating on the dance floor.

The good news? This situation is completely avoidable: With the right playlist, and a DJ who knows how to keep the party going, even the most stubborn of wedding guests (the ones who simply proclaim, “I don’t dance”) will be encouraged to join you on the dance floor.

To guarantee that your guests will be dancing the night away right alongside you, add these 11 tunes—they’re recommended by the country’s top DJs—to your wedding-day soundtrack. On the list you’ll find a few hits from the Jackson 5, a Stevie Wonder number and a couple of remixes that you can’t help but groove to.

Pass these jams along to your DJ and see below for more Big Day music inspiration.
