Wedding Lines Dances to Get Everyone in on The Action!
All the official moments of the day are done, the vows are exchanged, the speeches given, the cake cut, now it’s time to get to the party! After all, your wedding reception is a chance for you and your guests to cut loose and celebrate this joyous union! But how can you get your guests up and moving together? Maybe a wedding line dance is in order!
Asking your DJ to put on a well-known dance track is a genius and time tested way to get guests up and out of their seats and onto the dance floor! There are choices from classic country hits to modern-day pop sensations. Truly there’s a wedding line dance for every taste, and they have become hugely popular in recent years. Let’s take a quick look at some of the most popular wedding line dances of all time! Which ones would you like to see at your reception?
Wobble by V.I.C
The Wobble is a somewhat more recent line dance (as the song debuted in 2008), but since then has become a staple at weddings. With easy-to-follow moves and a solid R&B beat, your guests will fill the dance floor as soon as they hear the opening lyric “Oh!”
Conga by Miami Sound Machine and Gloria Estefan
Looking for a way to get every guest onto the dance floor? Then the Conga is just the song for you. This wedding dance is all about following the leader; so make a train of people and keep on adding to it as you move around the room. Soon you’ll have all your guests up, just be sure to end the song with everyone on the dance floor!
Cha-Cha Slide by DJ Casper
A couple of decades ago, Mr. C The Slide Man changed dance floors forever with the release of the Cha-Cha Slide. The routine has since turned into one of the most popular wedding line dances of all time! The simple moves and upbeat tempo is a winning combination.
Macarena by Los Del Rio
Love it or hate it, the Macarena is here to stay! And it remains one of the most popular wedding line dances, complete with a quick tempo, simple moves and jumping to boot, as well as opportunities for your guests to sing along, this track is a proven crowd-pleaser.
Old Town Road by Lil Nas X Featuring Billy Ray Cyrus
If you and your partner are country lovers at heart, the Old Town Road line dance might just be for you. It includes lots of fun side-stepping action along with some horse riding and cowboy moves. Yee-haw!
Time Warp from The Rocky Horror Picture Show
It might be an oldie, but it’s a goodie! Ready to do the Time Warp again?

So, feel free to unleash your inner ghoul and hit the dance floor pronto for a little Time Warp!
Final note… No Matter which wedding line dance songs you go with, just remember to get up and lead the routine yourselves! The moment your DJ hits ‘play’, make sure you and your partner are the first up on the dance floor. It’s your wedding, so it’s your job to lead the way! We’ve seen first hand, if the newlyweds bring loads of energy and enthusiasm to the line dance, the guests will follow suit.
