The reception part of a Wedding is filled with joy, laughter, familiar faces, delicious food and drinks, and is accentuated by (Wedding) music! A great Wedding reception unites the Bride and Groom’s family, and creates a party ambiance where all guests feel inclined to join the dance-floor and dance the night away.
For this reason, we invested in building the largest Wedding Song database on the web. We are still working on it to include as much information as necessary but as of now you can access thousands of Wedding songs and articles to help you find the perfect one.
Below you will find the top 5 Wedding songs in each category. This list was made by our Wedding DJs who have performed at hundreds of Weddings. The below songs are popular because they serve as the voice of the bride or groom when sharing a moment at the reception with their loved ones. Use our search bar (top-left of page) to find if a Wedding song you’re considering has been played at one of our Weddings.
