The passion expressed in a Spanish love song is truly unmatched and has never felt more appropriate than being played during a day that celebrates the love of your relationship. 

Whether you’re of Spanish heritage or not, it’s no surprise if you’re a big fan of Spanish songs. That’s why some of the most popular songs for weddings fall under the category of Spanish music. Merengue, salsa, reggaeton, samba—the list goes on and on. To give all of your guests something to dance to, it’s always a good idea to check all of the boxes.

In recent years, Latin dancing and Latin dancing music have gained popularity beyond leaps and bounds! The media has brought this style of dancing to the forefront and the public has seen how beautiful the dances are and has fallen in love with the music associated with them. Latin music has become mainstream rather than a crossover.

Younger guests will love dancing to hits by new artists like Bad Bunny and Rosalia, while older generations will appreciate classic songs from Celia Cruz and Jose Luis Perales. And when you’re looking to play something that will bring everyone together, you can’t go wrong with fun sing-alongs from old-school legends like Selena and Elvis Crespo.
