Some of your guests may pretend to hate funny wedding songs. But, the low-key love them. In fact, they’re usually the first ones to hit the dance floor when a funny song begins to play. And that’s the whole point. Having fun, smiling, and dancing is what receptions are all about. We have a great list of funny wedding songs to inspire you.
Funny Wedding Songs To Walk Down The Aisle To
“Here Comes The Bride” is sweet and traditional. But many couples want to walk down the aisle to top wedding songs that are unique. Do it with some humor with these songs.
- Don’t Cha – The Pussycat Dolls & Busta Rhymes
This can be taken in a number of ways. “Don’t cha wish your girlfriend was hot like me?” could be asking the guests wish they had a girlfriend as hot as the bride. Or, It could be asking the groom if he wishes he had a girlfriend instead of a bride. It’s a good laugh either way.
- Another One Bites the Dust – Queen
The joke is obvious. This hilarious wedding song pokes fun at the fact another single man’s life is coming to an end.
- Who Let the Dogs Out – Baha Men
This song is funny because of sheer randomness. No one would expect it and it’s completely irrelevant and unexpected. You’re guaranteed to get some boisterous laughter.
- Gold Digger – Kanye West ft. Jamie Foxx
Regardless of if the groom is loaded or spent his last dime on the wedding, this song is a good-natured laugh. As long as the bride is on board with the joke theme, this will go over well.
- Bad Romance – Lady Gaga
This song doesn’t make fun of the groom or the bride. It makes fun of both of them and that’s what makes it great!
Funny Wedding Exit Songs
Most guests will remember your wedding how they felt at the end of the night. Leave them with ear-to-ear smiles with songs like these.
- Love Is a Battlefield – Pat Benatar
This song makes light of the stereotypical couples that fight all the time. Bonus points if you choreograph a kung fu fight on the way to the getaway car.
- Bye Bye Bye – ‘N Sync
This song allows you – with a little bit of humor – to unapologetically let your guests know that the night is over. It’s time to head home. Don’t forget the obligatory wave.
- Run to the Hills – Iron Maiden
In a tongue in cheek way, this funny wedding song lets the groom have a little fun. He gets to pretend he made a huge mistake and needs to flee asap.
- Closing Time – Semisonic
Ditto for this song. Usually it’s awkward to kick people out of the venue, but this song makes it fun.
- Hit the Road Jack – Ray Charles
One final funny option to tell your guests the party’s over. This may be the best choice since it’s the rudest.
Funny Wedding Songs To Dance To
Playing a few crazy wedding songs during the reception is a great way to get your guests smiling and dancing.
- Tainted Love – Soft Cell
A song about a dark, sort of twist kind of love is sure to raise some eyebrows. Want to go even further? Opt for the Marylin Manson cover of this classic.
- Steal My Girl – One Direction
This catchy hook delivers a message. The entire guest list will be made aware that the groom may be a little overprotective.
- Every Breath You Take – The Police
Now that he’s married, the bride is going to be on the groom like a hawk. At least that’s what the song will indicate.
- Hokey Pokey – Ray Anthony
No message here. This song is just good, clean, silly fun. If this doesn’t get that last guest to the dance floor nothing will.
- Stuck In The Middle With You – Stealer’s Wheel
If you have “those uncles” attending your reception, no one would blame you for poking a little fun. Call out the clown to the left of you and jokers to the right, and watch as everyone shares a good laugh.
Funny Last Dance Wedding Songs
End your reception in a memorable fashion with a funny wedding song. Any of these suggestions will provide your guests with a story to tell.
- It Must Have Been Love – Roxette
Is the marriage over already? Let your guests know that you’re going to last by joking about an immediate annulment.
- What’s Love Got to Do With It? – Tina Turner
Celebrate your new marriage by complaining about love? Irony at its finest.
- Let’s Get It On – Marvin Gaye
Everyone knows what happens on the honeymoon. Address the elephant in the room by making it obvious.
- Making Whoopee – Eddie Cantor
If Marvin Gaye is a little too smooth for you, replace it with this funny wedding song. The lyrics alone are enough to make you lose it.
- The End – The Doors
Depressing lyrics and a melancholy tune. Normally this would be depressing. But, use it in this ironic way and it’s the perfect exit song for couples with a certain sense of humor.
Funny songs about marriage are a great way to break the ice. They’re also a fantastic way to make your wedding reception and ceremony unique and memorable. Go ahead and have fun. It’s your wedding! Just make sure to warn a few of your more “traditional” guests.
