You’ve all seen those awesome choreographed dances by wedding parties done at their receptions – like this one that went viral of a bridal party nailing a Beyonce medley. Although this woman and her besties are all professional dancers, we can all get in on a bit of in-synch dancing on our wedding nights.
This doesn’t just have to include a routine that the bridal party makes up. You can get all your guests in on the action by picking songs that have dances that people know. While everyone knows the YMCA, or the Macarena, these may feel a little old and cheesy to you (or maybe not!), which is why we’ve come up with this list of trending songs with matching dances for your wedding reception.
Silento – Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae) - 2015
Now watch me whip… Now watch me nae nae… Not only a 2015 big hit but also one of the most well known dances of the year. Everyone knows this one and if not, it is easy to follow! You’ll even have the kids on the dancefloor teaching your grandma how to do it. Just don’t worry too much about the lyrics because we don’t really know what they mean either.
iHeartMemphis – Lean & Dab - 2015
If you’re not over dabbing as yet – the dance move that’s been all over 2015 and 2016, then you might consider playing this party hit at your reception. Featuring some annoying vocals and a catchy beat, this song is a bit of an earworm, but at least it gives you your chance to get your dab on.
Madonna – Vogue - 1990
An oldie but a goodie, Madonna’s Vogue will always be in vogue! This one is pretty easy to do, just making angles with your hands around your face, plus all the oldies in the room will know how to do it. We just love the words to this one, too.
Beyonce – Single Ladies - 2008
An instant classic at weddings, engagements, and dancefloors everywhere, Beyonce is in full on Queen Bey mode in this song. If he liked it then he should have put a ring on it – and he did! While not many people know the whole dance to this one, most people are going to know how to bust out a move or two from the routine.
Zay Hilfigerrr & Zayion McCall - Juju On That Beat (TZ Anthem) – 2016
The latest dance craze to add to your playlist is the catchy Juju On That Beat. Our only song on the list from 2016 even tells you directly to “now slide, drop”. Just what is juju? Who knows! All we know is that the dance is one that can make everyone get up and start doing the moves.
Check out all these dances on YouTube to really get the dance moves right and make sure to send them out to your guests before the wedding so they can join in on the fun along with you, too.
Our venue at Il Tulipano has the perfect dancefloor for a bit of fun choreography on your special day. Come have a look, or call us for more information.
