Revealed: ten songs guaranteed to fill the dancefloor at your wedding

If you’re a bride or groom that has absolute faith in your party planning skills, we salute you. For everyone else who’s not so self-assured, the fear that your dancefloor will remain embarrassingly empty at your reception will have kept you awake at least once before you hit the top of the aisle.

According to (who surveyed 1,400 wedding DJs), there’s ten floorfillers that no guest will be able to stay seated for. From your aunties hitching up their skirts and strutting their stuff to your ushers sliding across the floor on their knees, if you feel like the party could be taken up a notch, pass your DJ or band this hitlist:

1. ‘I Want You Back’ – The Jackson 5
2. ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’ – Queen
3. ‘Mr Brightside’ – The Killers
4. ‘Chelsea Dagger’ – The Fratellis
5. ‘Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough’ – Michael Jackson
6. ‘Everybody Get Up’ – 5ive
7. ‘A Little Less Conversation’ – Elvis vs. Junkie XL
8. ‘Happy’ – Pharrell Williams
9. ‘Uptown Funk’ – Bruno Mars
‘Let’s Dance’ – David Bowie

We surveyed the TTKS team to find out what we can’t resist jazzily jogging onto the dancefloor to:

Editor Beth: ‘Tainted Love’ – Soft Cell

Digital manager Alec: ‘Africa’ – Toto
