A white veil occasion has a mix of memorable moments: the poignant exchange of vows, the merrymaking during the reception program, and sharing the joy with all of your family and friends. There are many ways to make your wedding extremely memorable and fun, from the scenic venue, coupled with stunning wedding backdrops to a festive reception program. But if you want to push the potential for fun, you need the best wedding dance floor setup.

In this article, we count the ways you can prepare for a wedding dance floor that will get all your guests up on their feet.


Plan With Your Wedding DJ

If you don’t want to fail, plan. Meet your DJ ahead of your wedding day to talk about the songs you’d like to hear and dance to. Prepare a playlist of songs to share with your DJ, and they can use it as a jumping-off point to fill out the entire evening with songs you can happily jam to. 

If you are too preoccupied with other wedding details to come up with a playlist, you can ask your DJ to prepare a set of songs and music to play for the entire program—for your approval, of course.


Consider All Your Guests

Wedding guests are a mix of loved ones from different generations, which is why it’s a must to choose the music that will suit all of them. This is the best way to make the party more fun! Ask your DJ to prepare a range of dance songs from the 50s to the present.


Play the Older Songs Early

Your older guests, especially your grandparents, would want to share fun and memorable moments on your wedding day. Have your DJ play their songs early on because they will likely turn in early.


Save the Rave for Last

Of course, having fun moments with the older guests early on means saving the rave for last. Have your most energetic guests hit the dance floor late in the night until the party is over! Your DJ surely knows the best music for the rave.


Play Songs from Different Cultures

Aside from age, you may have guests coming from a different cultures, too. Be sure to count them in by asking your DJ to prepare songs celebrating different cultures as well. This way, the party becomes even more memorable, and you may discover a new favourite song!.


Slow Music Makes the Vibe More Romantic

Slow romantic songs are the national anthem for wedding programs. In fact, your first dance as a couple needs slow music that will sweep you off your feet. It also evokes a special emotional feeling among your guests. Usually, the song played during this part is your personal choice, giving you and your spouse the most intimate moment.


Set the Tone

Ask your DJ to prepare upbeat songs that will help your guests loosen up at the beginning of the program. Play songs that will make all your guests dance to the beat to set the tone of the occasion.


Visualise Your Perfect Dance Floor

Lastly, it is important to let your DJ know what you like and don’t like, what you want the dance floor to look like—too crowded, intimate, or never-ending fun; and suggest ideas you wish to incorporate into your wedding dance floor.



With all of these tips, you’ll surely have the best night of your life. But above all else, make fun memories with all your guests since they are all there to celebrate with you. Hit your wedding dance floor, as it will make all the difference!
