5 Songs to Get Your Wedding Guests Dancing


November 15, 2018

Are you a bride who loves dancing and can’t wait to get on that dance floor at your reception? If so, this post is for you! If you’re not a bride but you still love good music, this post is still for you!

In case you didn’t know, I’m a dancer. Not like a “Dancing with the Stars” pro dancer, but your girl has got moves. Now, it’s debatable whether or not they’re good, but dancing makes my soul pretty dang happy and I’ve been known to “dance and shoot” at my fair share of weddings.

I’ve loved dancing from as far back as I can remember. I’ll never forget the first time I watched Dirty Dancing and I BEGGED my mom to put me in dance (watching the movie on repeat, of course!). My passion for music and dancing goes hand in hand. They’re both such unique forms of art and ways to express yourself. Which, I am all about!

Every year, Colt and I go to Utopia Fest, which is by far one of our most favorite music festivals. It’s such a bonus for me that Colt loves dancing too and that we can share our love of the arts together. Utopia Fest just has such a good vibe to it. Everyone, and I mean everyone is so nice, welcoming and fun. No one crowds the stage, there’s room for everyone to see and feel the music, and nobody cares if you dance your heart about. It’s really quite encouraged. And this has nothing to do with it but they have this crepe truck I’m basically obsessed with.

So, as I’m sure you’ve already guessed, I LOVE weddings where the dance floor is packed with hilarious dance moves and guests surrounding the bride and groom jamming out to some super fun music. And since Colt and I just spent three days dancing to some pretty fantastic music at the festival, I felt inspired to share my top five favorite songs you should add to your wedding playlist to get your guests’ booties up on that dance floor with you! Of course, I can never resist throwing in a few of my own moves for a couple songs, too. So, be prepared!

So, without further ado and in no particular order, check out these top 5 songs and let me know what you think! I love how different they are and they can appeal to so many different crowds who just want to get up and boogie. Yes, I did just say boogie.

I totally recommend listening to them a couple times. Feel those beats, sista! These jams are FUN and your wedding should be too! Don’t forget to send them to your friends so they can listen, jam out and get prepared for one epic dance party!
