From tragically tacky to just plain inappropriate, here’s a list of songs to keep off your reception playlist.
1. “We Are Family” It’s just so corny. Your family is obviously there with you celebrating your big day.
2. “Blurred Lines” Robin Thicke: A song so marred by controversy, you know you (don’t) want it anywhere near your special day.
3. “Cha Cha Slide” Yes, I know that everyone loves line dances. But not every wedding has to have one. It gets tiring after a while plus it’s much more fun to make up your own dance moves.
4. “Macarena” Los Del Rio: Just like Furbies and the phrase “Wassssupppp” somethings are just better to leave in the 90’s.
5. “Every Breath You Take” The Police: This song is not cute and it’s not romantic. It’s about stalking someone. For Pete’s sake, take a listen to the lyrics next time it’s on the radio.
6. “My Heart Will Go On” Celine Dion: Another 90s relic that’s best to just leave where it is.
7. “Gold Digger” Kanye West: This one needs no explanation.
8. “I Hate Everything About You” Three Days Grace: Yeah, unless this is a snide jab at your new MIL, I’d leave this one off.
9. “Sexual Healing” Marvin Gaye: Save the steam for the honeymoon please and thank you.
10. “All My Exes Live In Texas” George Strait: Your wedding day is not the day to bring up past flings, even if they are in fact citizens of the Lone Star State.
