The Most Popular Wedding Songs (All Genres) 

We all know that one song that hits us just right at a wedding, the one that makes us throw our drink in the air and sing our hearts out. It never fails when we look around and everyone else is singing with us. It’s always the same songs: the Electric Slide, Get Low, Living on a Prayer, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, etc. These songs are iconic and wedding receptions somehow feel incomplete without them. 

If you’re planning a wedding (or wedding party), you want your guests to have a memorable experience. To accomplish this, you’ll need some crowd-pleasers in your music mix.

Chances are, you don’t want your DJ to sound like a pop radio station, and you don’t want your Montana wedding DJ to play obscure underground music, either. That’s why having a list of the 20 most popular wedding songs can help you create a list of popular songs you want to be played at your wedding. 

When you’re creating a list of songs for your wedding, starting with the most popular songs can get the creative juices flowing. After seeing this list, you may suddenly remember the name of that song you couldn’t think of, or you might see one on here that slipped your mind. Luckily, a DJ company has a lengthy discography.
