If you've been to more than a couple of weddings, you've probably heard the same songs at the reception, over and over. Take pity on the wedding party though: finding the right kind of music to keep your guests dancing is not an easy task! It can't be so out there that no one knows how to dance to it, but it's also good to avoid something people have danced to a thousand times already (except for that handful of must-have classics, of course). Thankfully, this list of 2022 wedding songs has some magically marriage-y tunes!
