Presenting Your Ultimate Summer Wedding Playlist!


Everyone has that song that gets them out of their chair, onto the dance floor, and grooving like no one's watching. Whether it be your classic "Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours" by Stevie Wonder or a more modern tune like Calvin Harris's "Summer," there's nothing like music that instantly creates a party — especially at a wedding. But one universal way to get your guests up on their feet — no matter their taste in music? By asking the DJ to play the song of the summer.

Songs of the summer are Billboard hits that define the sun-drenched months of fun, like 2007's "Umbrella" by Rihanna, 2012's "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen, and this year's "Fancy" by Iggy Azalea or Beyoncé and Jay Z's "Drunk In Love". With a majority of weddings occurring in June, July, and August, it's safe to say these tunes are the biggest crowd-pleasers at warm-weather receptions.

With that in mind, we figured there'd be no better way to curate an amazing summer wedding playlist than by choosing some of the best songs of the summer from the past 10 years.

Listen to this playlist and take a trip down memory lane. Because come on, there's no way you can listen to "Bleeding Love" and not feel something. Then, imagine your wedding guests dancing their hearts out to these eminently enjoyable tunes. We can guarantee that you'll end up using some (or all!) of them for your reception.

Whether you're planning a wedding, attending a wedding and want a great song to request, or just want to soak in some musical summer fun, sit back, relax, and jam out to our Spotify playlist.
