The Most Common Songs At Gay Weddings Revealed

The formal planning of a wedding or civil partnership often takes a year. More often than not the most memorable part comes from the party and entertainment where guests can relax and let their hair down.

The Most Common Songs At Gay Weddings Revealed

Therefore we thought we would get the official list of most requested songs for weddings during the last calendar year 2015.

The company favoured by mobile DJ’s across the globe www.DJEventPlanner.com gave us permission to print the formal list for industry eyes only which summarises over 2 million requests worldwide at nuptials of all sorts.

We spoke to a number of well-known mobile wedding DJ’s and they unanimously said that the music chosen or that works tends to be largely the same whether they are entertaining a straight, gay or lesbian wedding – fun music is fun music period.

With the exception of sometimes a different first song choice that a gay couple may choose like: The Mama’s And Papa’s Making Our Own Kind Of Music or Whitney Houston’s All The Man That I Need the rest of the night is indistinguishable from heterosexual weddings and defaulting to say In The Navy/It’s Raining Men/I’m Coming Out or Dancing Queen is seen as not treating the LGBT audience with the respect due on a couples’ big night.
