For all the other soon-to-be brides and grooms out there, here are a few compilations of good playlists (uhm, maybe not “good” depending on your own personal flava) for an engagement party versus a bachelorette party. Obviously, both have very different feels – so don’t hit shuffle by mistake. Ready. Set. Download.

Engagement Party

Since this party is substantially more formal than the Bachlorette Party, and the couple’s family and friends will all be present, it’s better to play more classic songs instead of Top 40 hits.

1. The Best is Yet to Come, Frank Sinatra

2. That’s All, Michael Buble

3. ‘S Wonderful, Diana Krall

4. Can’t Help Falling in Love with You, Elvis

5. Better Together, Jack Johnson

6. All I Want Is You, Barry Louis Polisar

7. God Only Knows, The Beach Boys

8. Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Queen

9. Accidentally in Love, Counting Crows

10. Such Great Heights, The Postal Service

11. It’s Good to be in Love, Frou Frou

12. First Day of My Life, The Bright Eyes

13. Count on My Love, Liz Phair

14. Love You Madly, Cake

15. In My Life, The Beatles

16. Somewhere Over the Rainbow, Israel Kamakawiwo’ole

17. At Last, Etta James
Bachelorette Party

So the bachlorette parties obviously range from bride to bride. From going out to the bars, to staying inside and playing games, to making cocktails, the point of the Bachlorette Party is to have fun, relax and enjoy a Girl’s Night Out before tying the knot.

1. Fergalicious, Fergie

2. Crazy in Love, Beyonce

3. Everytime We Touch, Cascada

4. Maneater, Nelly Furtado

5. Sexyback, Justin Timberlake

6. Bonnie & Clyde, Jay-Z

7. S.O.S., Rhianna

8. Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, Cyndi Lauper

9. Like a Virgin, Madonna

10. Dancing Queen, ABBA

11. Save a Horse, Big & Rich

12. Ready to Run, The Dixie Chicks (for a sample of this jam, check out the post: Sprinting in the Opposite Direction of Relationships)

13. Doo Wop (That Thing), Lauryn Hill

14. Used to Love U, John Legend

15. Don’t Phunk With My Heart, The Black Eyed Peas

16. Wind it Up, Gwen Stefani

17. Don’t Stop Believin’, Journey (I think it’s illegal not to include this song on any playlist where drinking will be involved)
