Whether you opt for a band or a DJ, here are eight songs that are essential for any memorable wedding reception.

First dance: “At Last” by Etta James
What better song for your first dance as a couple than one of the most romantic songs of all time?

Garter/removal toss: “Pour Some Sugar On Me” by Def Leppard
If you decide to partake in garter/removal toss tradition, milk the cheesiness with an-over-the-top rock song like this classic.

The bouquet toss: “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)” by Beyoncé
Beyoncé’s hit “Single Ladies” has become the theme song for the part of the wedding said to predict who will be next to “put a ring on it.”

The line dance: “Wobble” by V.I.C.
An easy-to-follow line dance is essential for getting those with two left feet out on the dance floor. V.I.C.’s hip-hop line dance “Wobble” is the favorite of the moment.

The oldie: “Boogie Shoes” by KC and the Sunshine Band
Since wedding guests usually run the age gamut, including danceable oldies is important, which any respectable party band should know.

The locals-only song: “Get it Ready, Ready!” by D.J. Jubilee
While your relatives from up North may not understand what he means by “What’s the name of your school?”, the local contingent of your guests will appreciate the New Orleans bounce classic.

End of the night: “Don’t Stop Believin’” by Journey
This song has closed down many a bar, making this the perfect way to send your guests home sweaty and smiling.
