About the Magnificent Moments Team – Our Top 10 Must Play Songs

Here at Magnificent Moments Weddings, it shouldn’t come as a shock that we love everything about weddings – it is truly what we live for.  But I’ve got a secret to share with you – our absolute favorite part is the DANCING! You may even catch us at some point in the night joining you and your groom out on the dance floor, especially our owner Amanda!  As planners we often get asked about song options for the reception, so we thought it would be fun to share our Top 10 Must Play Songs.


I am a huge Britney Spears fan (even though she doesn’t have great wedding music) and love the music that I grew up listening to!  Plus, I also love line dancing to the Wobble and the Cupid Shuffle (I know that is not for everyone!). I even made my bridesmaids go out to that on the dance floor at my wedding as a way to get everyone out there 🙂  Here is my top 10 must play song list to get people to dance at your wedding! – in no particular order:

Wobble Baby – VIC
Don’t Stop Believin – Journey
Billie Jean – Michael Jackson
I gotta feelin – Black Eyed Peas
Can’t Stop the Feeling – Justin Timberlake
Party Rock Anthem – LMFAO
Bang Bang – Jessie J and Ariana Grande
Uptown Funk – Bruno Mars
This Is How We Do It – Montell
Hot in Herre – Nelly

I love the classic, older songs that you probably hear at every wedding, along with the newer songs. I love when the right party song comes on and I see all the guests hop out of their seats and head for the dance floor to show off their best moves! From old to the new, there are so many fun wedding songs.  Here are my top 10 must play songs:

I Wanna Dance With Somebody – Whitney Houston
Love On Top – Beyonce
Happy – Pharrell
It Takes Two – Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock
Shout – Isley Brothers
My Girl – The Temptations
Blurred Lines – Robin Thicke
Gettin’ Jiggy With It – Will Smith
Walking On Sunshine – Katrina and The Waves
Marry You – Bruno Mars

I am a sucker for early 2000s music – can you say Backstreet Boys!, but I also like modern upbeat dance songs as well.  My playlist is a mix of old and new, but definitely has something to get you out on the dance floor.  Here is my list of my absolute top 10 must play songs:

I Want it That Way- Backstreet Boys
