The Best Songs for Getting Ready With Your Bridesmaids

Bridesmaids, Planning Tips
The mimosas are being poured, your 'maids are sporting matching robes, and your makeup artist has just arrived. What's next on the itinerary? Playing a killer playlist to get you and your gals ready for the big day, of course! We've curated a mix of old and new, with nostalgic '90s classics that will you bring you back to a major #TBT moment and current hits that are total dance-worthy tunes.

We're starting off with a love song that's anything but sappy (you can save that for the first dance), and of course there's no one like Queen Bey to belt out a power ballad that brings you to your feet — and "Love on Top" is the perfect getting-ready opener. Extra points to whoever makes it to the 5th key change! Sing along to "Teenage Dream" by Katy Perry and Miley's "Party in the U.S.A.," classic feel-good summer jams, and segue into the iconic 80's synth-claps of Whitney's "I Wanna Dance with Somebody" — you're going to want to put down the hairdryers and curling irons because this one deserves a full lip-syncing dance off. Another diva we're putting on the playlist? Our girl Mariah with our all-time favorite "Always Be My Baby" followed by our MTV idols Britney Spears and Destiny's Child with "...Oops I Did It Again" and "Bootylicious."

Now it's time to bring it back to 2015 with pop staples like Ariana Grande's "Problem," Rihanna's laid-back "FourFiveSeconds," and Charlie XCX's "Boom Clap." We're also adding Maroon 5's "Sugar" to the mix, because honestly it's totally addicting and we think every playlist needs a little Adam Levine love. So now it's time to grab the mic (your iPhone will do) and get loose — after all, with that ring on your finger, and your BFFs by your side (and with divas like Whitey and Mariah singing the classics) we'd say you're in good company for a big-day celebration.
