This list adds up to almost six hours of dance time. So you won't be able to play all of them. For sure, you have the ones you adore and a few that annoy you (probably since they were overplayed at some stage). Hopefully, this list has also triggered your memory and you've added on more. 


Music is such an important part of your celebrations. It creates an atmosphere, fuels your guests' energy levels, and gets the party going. So invest plenty of time curating your wedding day playlists, including party time which usually kicks off after dinner and formalities are finished. 


Party on - it's going to be one of the best nights of your life!
