Music selection for your dance floor is a super important element to the overall vibe of your wedding…

You have a variety of guests attending, from your grandparents to young nephews, plus old friends from your party days in your early 20s, and beyond.  But how do you cater to them all while also keeping your dance floor alive and full of energy all night? 

A huge part of this is obviously hiring a great DJ or band that knows how to rock a crowd, read the room, and has a playlist of tried and tested dance floor hits to cater to all ages. 

A wedding dance floor is no place for a DJ to showcase all their latest finds and club bangers; its an opportunity to unite your guests with a carefully curated selection of songs known to all ages and backgrounds of guaranteed crowd-pleasers.

For this reason, we wouldn’t recommend choosing your wedding entertainment by simply asking the DJ from your favourite local nightclub to come and entertain your wedding guests. 

You’ll need to find a DJ who has spent plenty of time refining their playlists and ability to read a crowd spanning all the top hits of the last 50 years with some songs being as familiar to nana as they are to your 8-year-old nephew, and are sure to get everyone up and dancing!  

We know it can be a bit daunting to find the right fit while planning your wedding from afar, but the Queenstown Wedding Association directory has made this extra easy, with an “entertainment” category, that covers professional wedding DJs, Bands, and more!

 

To help you with some dance floor ideas to get the ball rolling while planning your big day, here are the Top 200 Requested Wedding Dance Floor Songs of All Time, as of 2021:
