If none of these playlists are exactly what you were looking for, I encourage you to pull inspiration from some of them and make your own playlist! It is really easy and will allow you to dance the night away without having to think about what’s going to come on next. To make sure everyone gets to hear their favorite songs, allow guests to write down song suggestions and simply add them to the queue! I hope that these playlists make your guests put it all out on the dance floor!
