Boy Band Love Songs For A Wedding Cocktail Hour

The boy band really came on the scene in the 1960s and still continues today. Boy bands consist of young men, usually in their teens, singing to young women and girls. They typically cannot play instruments but can sing, dance, and act.

No, we would not suggest a wedding reception full of boy band songs. However, they do offer great love songs over the year.

If the average age of a woman getting married today is between the ages 28-32, they were born between 1989 and 1985. This means their boy bands were in the 2000s.

Sorry, the Monkees, the Jackson 5, Menudo, New Edition, NKOTB, and Boyz II Men as you are a bit before who we want to focus on our list. One Direction, sorry, you are a bit too late. We don’t want to start with a list of Boy Bands in this era and ruin the surprise.
