Most of us have seen the popular JK Wedding Entrance Dance video to “Forever” by Chris Brown (it’s gotten more than 100 million views since it debuted on July 19, 2009!).
Sound Precision Entertainment loves a good dance routine so we’ve compiled a list of five songs for you to consider for a choreographed number during your wedding ceremony or reception. We’ve seen dances that involve just the bride or groom, the couple themselves, the bridesmaids and/or groomsmen, families and even guests! Let your creativity fly with these five song suggestions along with an accompanying example of a wedding dance routine.
1. “Raise Your Glass” – Pink
This Pink hit is a fantastic party song and perfect choice for a choreographed dance (check out the family example above!). It celebrates the first decade since Pink’s debut in 2000 and is dedicated to her supportive fans. Encourage your guests to “Raise Your Glass” and party the night away with a fun dance incorporating this tune!
2. “Thriller” – Michael Jackson
You probably already know most of the moves to this Michael Jackson hit, which is what makes “Thriller” an excellent choice for a choreographed dance. By the way, the largest number of people doing the “Thriller” zombie-dance routine, according to the Guinness Book of World Records: is “13,597 participants in an event organized by the Instituto de la Juventud del Gobierno del Distrito Federal at the Monumento a la Revolucion, Mexico City, Mexico, on 29 Aug 2009.” Think you can beat that?!
3. “Marry You” – Bruno Mars
Who says the dancing needs to wait until the reception? This couple included an acrobatic routine with the groom and several guests to Bruno Mars’ “I Think I Wanna Marry You.” This is a popular song for both engagements and weddings and was perfect for the groom’s entrance! Fun fact: In an interview with Idolator, Bruno Mars said that the song had its beginning by “just playing the chords,” and then freestyling the lyrics.
4. “What Makes You Beautiful” – One Direction
Another video featuring “the guys,” “What Makes You Beautiful” is a fun song for the groomsmen to use. It’s a fun and upbeat yet sweet song that is easy to learn, and most of the potential participants have probably already heard it before: This song was One Direction’s debut single and lead single from their debut studio album, Up All Night (2011).
5. “Single Ladies” – Beyonce
Have your bridesmaids unleash their inner Sasha Fierce with a choreographed dance routine to this girl favorite. There are plenty of examples out there, and the actual dance routine from the video is pretty easy to adapt! P.S. It’s also a fun song for the garter toss! Trivia: “Single Ladies” won three Grammy Awards in 2010, including Song of the Year.
