Ok, so we all know that the ceilidh is a traditional fave of ours here in Scotland, but if, like me, you’re not a die hard Scot and prefer to have a wee boogie to some tunes once a bit of ceilidh dancing is done, then kick your wedding into gear with my handpicked, ultimate playlist for keeping your guests happy and your dance floor filled in 2023!
When thinking of the style of music you want for your wedding or indeed planning any songs or playlist you should first start by reminiscing about the best weddings you’ve attended. What makes a wedding playlist so special are not just the songs that you love, but also floor fillers that are guaranteed to get your guests up and dancing. I’m talking Uptown Funk, Don’t Stop Me Now, Single Ladies, Ruby…. and the list goes on!
Variety is key, not only do you want songs from different artists and genres, but you also want some that are upbeat, some a little slower and some that will make everyone go a little crazy (especially after a few glasses of fizz or those his n’ hers cocktails you lovingly chose). Use this list as your inspiration and as starting point and then go ahead and add any additional songs you’d like to!
Here they are, my top 30 picks for your wedding play list in 2023.
Hope it helps and happy dancing!
