Wilson Phillips give a surprise performance of the hit 90's song "Hold on" at Lillian's wedding. Not everyone can get a famous music group to sing their favorite tune at their reception, but choosing the wedding party playlist is an important part of planning a wedding. In this feature, we'll list the best wedding party songs that are sure to be a hit at any reception.

This wedding playlist guide is sure to get guests up and dancing:

FIRST DANCE - For some couples, the easiest part of planning a wedding is choosing a song for the first dance but for most, choosing that one special song can feel like a daunting task. Some popular choices include Shania Twain’s “From this Moment,” “At Last” by Etta James and Frank Sinatra’s “The Way you Look Tonight” .

SHOUT - THE EISLEY BROTHERS - This classic hit has been playing at weddings for years. The Isley Brothers really gave us all something to shout about and brides and grooms everywhere are hearing our calls. You know you’re having fun when at a wedding reception when you’re joining the bride and groom kicking your heels and shouting a little bit louder now.

POUR SOME SUGAR ON ME - DEF LEPPARD - Def Leppard really sets the reception house on fire with their 80’s classic “Pour some sugar on me.” For those nostalgic for big hair and tight leather pants, this 80’s cheesy rock anthem is a smash during peak dance hours of a wedding. Pour some sugar on that wedding!

I GOTTA FEELIN' - THE BLACK EYED PEAS - This song may not be a long withstanding classic like "Shout", but it's sure to be on wedding playlists for ages! Nothing will make you want to "fill up your cup and yell MAZEL TOV!" like Fergie and Will.i.am's great beats - so don't try and pretend you don't love this song. Just get up and dance!

POKERFACE - LADY GAGA - Even with your best poker face, you won't be able to hide your excitement when you hear this song blare out of the loudspeakers at the reception. Love her or hate her, there is no denying that Lady Gaga can write a mean dance track that will get everyone else out on the dance floor in no time.

THRILLER - MICHAEL JACKSON - Michael Jackson’s classic song Thriller is a hit around the world and on one of the most successful albums ever, it’s no question that Thriller should makethat wedding playlist. This song will surely be one of the most looked back on moments from your wedding video.

THE LOCOMOTION - LITTLE EVA - This song is a surefire crowd pleaser for the young and the old alike. Not only will this song make people want to participate and get out onto the dance floor to form a train, your party guests may even make a friend or two while making their way around the room during their "chugga chugga motion".

CLOSING TIME - Alas, all celebrations must come to an end a wedding ceremony is no exception. Sometimes guests need a little push to close down the night. But just because the night is over doesn't mean that you have to go out on a slow note! Try something that gets the message across of ending the night but still staying up tempo, such as "Save The Last Dance For Me".  Hey, the honeymoon awaits!
