Most Played Wedding Reception Songs

Hello Readers,

After attending many weddings over the past few years (including my own), I have noticed one comMusic notesmon trend during most wedding receptions.

The music that a DJ or full band plays.

I have compiled a list of songs that I have heard most commonly played over the past two years.  Some songs are very current, and then there are other classic songs that seem to be mainstays, but that some brides and grooms will definitely have on their “DO NOT PLAY LIST.” 

With that being said, I also predict in the next year that there will be a lot of Michael Jackson songs that will be played during wedding receptions.  Also, with Whitney Houston’s new album “I Look To You” coming out on September 1, 2009 , I expect to start hearing a mixture of her new tunes, coupled with the vast array of her past hits like “I’ll Always Love You,” “How Will I Know” and “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.”
