The Ultimate 70s Wedding Songs List!

Last Updated: 10th July 2023

The 70s provided us with some of the most iconic bands and artists of all time. The world wouldn’t be the same without Elton John, Queen, Led Zeppelin or Stevie Wonder!

Choosing some 70s wedding music is a great idea. Why? Read on…

  • You’ll be playing your guests some epic music – and who doesn’t want to do that?
  • It’s ideal for a first dance – You won’t look back on your first dance and wonder why you chose the latest song, which instantly went out of style the day after your wedding. Choosing an older song will make your special moment timeless.
  • The 70s were just so groovy – Disco was BIG back in the 70s and people today like to boogie as much as they did back then. There’s no better way to fill your dance floor than with some classic disco tracks!
  • You can rock out – The 70s built on the strong foundations of the 60s when it comes to rock music. Many of the rock songs from this era sound as fresh as the day they were written and are absolute classics.
  • Your family will love it – Don’t forget that your parents grew up in the 70s and they probably LOVE this stuff. It’s important to include songs from all eras to make sure every generation has something to sing along and dance to.

Check out our huge list of over 200 wedding songs from the 70s. You’ll find beautiful songs perfect for a first dance, funky classics sure to keep people grooving all night long and legendary rock tracks guaranteed to send you guests wild!
