Wedding DIY For Brides On A Budget ~ 141 Wedding Songs + Free Printable



This fun post is dedicated to the music at your reception. It was hard to come up with a list that we both agreed on.  The songs on this list are from artists that sing in English, Spanish and sometimes in both languages. I am Latina and need to mix it up and have bachata, merengue, salsa and my reggaeton jams.  Think of Aventura, Marc Anthony, Daddy Yankee, and Pitbull.

My husband and I want some old school hip-hop and dancehall reggae. Think of Cutty Ranks: "Limb by Limb," Fat Joe, Snoop Dog. You know that when you are sitting down or on the dance floor and hear Fat Joe's "Lean Back" song your body wakes up and starts to lean back. Or you hear Snoop Dog's "Drop it like it's Hot" and you will get up and dance.

I have slow songs that include Luther Vandross, Ed Sheeran, and Brian McKnight. You can find your first couple’s dance song from Luther Vandross “Here and Now” or K-Ci and JoJo “All My Life” and if you want one in Spanish look at Sin Banderas “Entra En Mi Vida.” 




It was a balance coming up with this list of songs that we both enjoyed. Do you have a song that should be included?  Let me know in the comments below and I will do the second part and add to this list.

  5. I think you have a very comprehensive list and really show the love of the music. You made great choices. A music CD can also be a good wedding token.

  6. That's so much fun picking out songs for the wedding. I'm sure it'll be fun doing it when my kids get married. My daughter will probably have a ton of 90's early 2000's on it for reminiscing.

  7. I think this is a pretty great list of wedding songs. It was so long ago that we were picking out the list. Although I don't remember having much input into it at the time. Ah well. :-)

  8. I love your playlist. Great mix of slow and upbeat tunes. I do not know of any family member getting married this year, but I think I may pick a few songs and download it to my phone to listen to when I want to relax and unwind.

  9. If you have an awesome playlist! I don't think I have any other suggestions in fact I think I might steal a couple of your ideas for myself, for our wedding anniversary in a couple of months.

  10. This is a great list of wedding songs! I never realized how many songs there were to choose from!

  11. Wow, so many to choose from. Creating the play list for the DJ took my daughter and now son-in-law the longest time for their wedding. They wanted what they both like and what they thought their guests would enjoy for dancing too. Such fun and good memories.

  12. I think it's a much better touch for a more intimate gathering than a DJ or band. Some great songs on there!

  13. After reading over your playlist looks like you really tried to make everyone happy with this play list. We didn't have music at our wedding, just wasn't done as much back when I got married.

  22. I am glad you were able to come up with a song list both you and your husband to be agreed on. We were lucky enough to have a close friend of the family DJ for my son's wedding. It can get pretty expensive.

  23. That's a big list! We did our own music after our wedding. It's so easy to do any more with the advances tech has made and so much more affordable than getting a dj.

  24. I'm not even getting married, I've been married 16 years, and I have a wedding songs playlist.

  28. I would make my own song list for my wedding and I think it's a much better touch for a more intimate gathering than a DJ or band. Some great songs on there! I love that you had a bit of everything and categorized them according to old versus newer.
