Highlighting the songs you love on our extensive song list is what gives us a sense of your taste… and what kind of party you’re looking to have! 

If you’re like most of our couples, you’re more than ready to dance the night away all night long with all your favorite people, so below we have a few examples of songs that get people moving and grooving every time; because once you’re finished highlighting the song list, don’t forget you still get to pick 3 specific song requests! While it’s important to pick songs that are meaningful to you and your new spouse, if you wanted to make sure a favorite dance tune came on: this is the place to do it.
