80’s Music Hits For Your Reception


Don’t forget these 80’s hits at your reception!

Who doesn’t love 80’s music? This generation gifted us some great songs that you just can’t help but dance to! When planning your wedding music, it is likely that you will be playing at least some 80’s hits (and we don’t blame you). Our Mike Staff DJs put together a playlist with some of the top 80’s songs for your wedding reception.

This playlist has everything from rock to pop to country, a little bit for everyone. You’ll probably find yourself slow dancing to “Faithfully” by Journey, and singing along to “Don’t Stop Believin’” with your bridal party.
