When it comes to weddings, 1960s music still gets people on the dance floor! The 1960s were a decade where a multitude of genres emerged in popularity: R&B, Soul, DooWop, Motown, and Folk. Rock and Roll was revolutionized once again as a little band from England started the British Invasion: The Beatles. Oh, and the end of the 1960s featured this music festival you may have heard about: Woodstock.

The best 1960s music for weddings features artists such as Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Simon & Garfunkel, Dion & The Belmonts, The Four Seasons, The Beach Boys, Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Three Dog Night, Janis Joplin, and Johnny Cash. Many of their greatest hits are still relevant to today’s youth, as they have been featured in various pop culture media outlets such as movies, TV, commercials, and social media memes.
