Just because the reception's over doesn't mean the party is. And at the wedding after-party, there had better be some amazing songs playing to get your guests even more into the groove! The key to wedding after-party songs is choosing danceable beats with lyrics that everyone knows.

Most of the time, wedding reception songs center around cross-generational tunes and special moments, like the first dance and the father/daughter dance. That cuts into the amount of time for more contemporary songs, and that's why the after-party is so great. It means you can play jams like Zedd and Selena Gomez's "I Want You to Know" and Walk the Moon's "Shut Up and Dance." Even slightly older songs like Flo Rida's "Club Can't Handle Me" or DJ Snake's "Turn Down For What" might not fit into the grand scheme of things, but you can definitely dance to them after the reception ends.

We also love incorporating classic favorites like Daft Punk's "One More Time," Salt-N-Pepa's "Push It," and Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back." With eminently danceable beats and lyrics everyone knows, it's pretty much guaranteed that these songs will create an after-party will be one people rave about for years to come. Here are our go-to wedding after-party songs.
