My 18 Songs to Pack the Dance Floor at Your Puerto Rico Destination Wedding Reception

Dance, dance, dance! One of the major goals at a wedding reception is to have everyone on their feet and dancing the night away! As part of La Concha Weddings team I have seen my fair share of Puerto Rico destination weddings, most of which are “Jumpin, Jumpin”. What’s the secret to achieving the ultimate dance party at your reception?

Cue the perfect playlist.

  1. Uptown Funk – Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars

This hit will have everyone thriving. Don’t believe me? Just watch.


  1. Shout – The Isley Brothers

            One of the best crowd participation songs, that won’t make you feel like you’re doing the ‘Chicken Dance’.


  1. Shut Up and Dance with Me – WALK THE MOON

Just the song you need to escape those elongated awkward conversations with extended relatives.


  1. Yeah – Usher

On a one-to-ten, this jam is a certified twenty when it comes to packing the dance floor.


  1. Single Ladies – Beyonce

Dedicate this one to your girls who are strong, independent women that don’t need no man.


  1. Forever – Chris Brown

            This hit will have guests, young and old, remaining ‘forever on the dance floor’.


  1. Come on Eileen – Dexy Midnight Runners

Get ready to make a dance circle for Aunt Eileen, because she’s about to bust a move.


  1. I Want You Back – Jackson 5

            This classic will have all of the grown men in the establishment hitting high-notes you never knew they could.


  1. Sweet Caroline – Neil Diamond

            Your guests will be describing your wedding as “SO GOOD! SO GOOD!” for years to come.


  1. Don’t Stop Believin’ – Journey

When this song comes on, even the groom becomes ‘just a small town girl’.


  1. Sweet Child O’Mine – Guns N’Roses

            Mentally prepare yourself: your parents and all of their friends are about to channel their inner 80’s-self.


  1. I Wanna Dance with Somebody – Whitney Houston

Because, who doesn’t?


  1. Rather Be – Clean Bandit

            There’s no place your guests would rather be than the La Concha dance floor, when this song comes on.


  1. September – Earth Wind & Fire

            This classic will give you all the feels of dancing in September, no matter when your La Concha wedding takes place.


  1. I Gotta Feeling – Black Eyed Peas

This ultimate feel-good anthem will have even Granny raising the roof at your Puerto Rico destination wedding.


  1. Cupid Shuffle – Cupid

Because the “Cha Cha Slide” is sooooo 2000.


  1. Hey Ya – Outkast

Even the least danceable guests can ‘Shake it like a Polaroid picture’.


  1. Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough – Michael Jackson

For most guests that attend any La Concha wedding, ‘enough’ dancing time is never enough!

These are just some of my favorite get-up-and-dance wedding tunes. Add a few (or all!) of these hits to your Puerto Rico destination wedding reception playlist, I ensure you will have all of your family and friends getting their groove on in no time!

Waiting for you in Paradise,
