75 Best Wedding Line Dance Songs

 

 
Whether it’s traditional country line dancing or group dances, these songs bring everyone out to the dance floor. Because it isn’t partner dancing like a slow dance, people of all ages and relationship statuses feel comfortable participating. Your wedding reception is a party, right? So get it started with some line dancing.

What is the Difference Between Line Dancing and Group Dances?

Group dance songs and line dance songs are played at wedding receptions to get people all together on the dance floor — in a group. Group and line dance songs are also known as audience participation songs. Group songs played can invoke a conga line, a train line, rows of line dancing, and more!

Group songs are generally less complicated as far as dance moves are concerned. “Shout” by the Isley Brothers – shouting and raising hands, “Willie & The Hand Jive” by Johnny Otis – a routine hand jive. Lastly, we would recommend “The Stroll” by the Diamonds. Everyone lines up with men on one side and women on the other. Then, each couple goes through the line under everyone’s hands. It’s a classic.

Are Group Songs Too Cheesy?

Group songs are cheesy. Cheesy is fun. Embrace the cheese! People may smirk for a moment until they see everyone else having fun. Have you done the conga up and down a wedding boat? It’s really fun.

Songs that will entice a group conga line or train line include “C’mon N’ Ride It (The Train)” by Quad City DJ’s, “Conga” by Miami Sound Machine, “The Loco-motion” by Grand Funk Railroad, and “The Locomotion” by Little Eva.

Another activity at more casual or upbeat wedding receptions is the limbo. We added the most popular limbo song, “Limbo Rock” by Chubby Checker, below. However, if the bridal couple wants a lengthy limbo line at their wedding reception, be sure to check out our long list of best limbo songs.

Should You Have Line Dancing At Your Wedding?

A better question maybe if you want people to dance at your wedding. It’s up to you, as the wedding couple, to decide the mood they want at their wedding reception. Some couples think group dance songs as cheesy or overplayed at wedding receptions. But when the moment hits, it can be pure magic.

There are many country songs to choose from that your DJ can play at your wedding. Many guests at wedding receptions would know them as line dance songs. However, our most popular country line dance songs are “Achy Breaky Heart” by Billy Ray Cyrus, “Boot Scootin’ Boogie” by Brooks & Dunn, “Chattahoochee” by Alan Jackson, and “Watermelon Crawl” by Tracy Bird. Popular pop radio songs have created dance crazes also. These songs include “Macarena” by Los Del Rio, “Cha Cha Slide” by Mr. C, “Electric Slide” by Marcia Griffiths, and “The Twist” by Chubby Checker.

Include a Line Dance Lesson

Talk to your professional wedding planner and DJ. They probably know someone who can teach a few line dancing songs. And if they don’t, look to your local bars. Someone is always teaching line dancing. Don’t worry if country music isn’t your jam. Country line dancing can be done to any genre of music that has a good beat!

A current popular thing to do at weddings is to have a choreographed dance with a group of people. For this, you would select your own songs. We have seen routine dances to “Forever” by Chris Brown and, of course, “Thriller” by Michael Jackson on YouTube. Old-time kid songs are also very popular to fill the dance floor at wedding receptions. These songs include the Hokey Pokey, the Chicken Dance, and the Bunny Hop.
