Wedding Ceremony & Reception Music Discussions

Dancing Music?

I'm making my own playlist for the reception.  My problem is that I'm having a hard time finding music with a good beat that has appropriate lyrics.  Even if they don't curse or say something wildly inappropriate, they more often than not sing about unrequited love.  This is not the message I want to send during my reception!

So... any recommendations on some music that's fun to dance to that is also wedding-appropriate?  Thanks for the help!

    If you are having multiple generations, you may want to mix in some older stuff (Beatles, Sinatra, Elvis) for the older generations.   You generally don't have to worry about inappropriate lyrics with those.

    I was honestly going to post something kind of like this.
    We have a large range of people coming.  My immediate family is christian-only music, my fiances family is into country (which I hate :P). I just dont want to offend anyone and want to have a fun mix of music.

    So I'm in the same boat! Thanks for posting

    I feel the same way! I am going to stick with classics, the older stuff. I love Elvis and the Beatles, so I am going to play a lot of those. You could try to find the radio edit of songs to make them more appropriate.
