Ah, the 2000s. The decade of questionable fashion choices and T-Pain-style autotune. It brought us everything from club-worthy Usher jams to stellar singalong songs by Vanessa Carlton, and for that, we thank it. If you want to get your wedding guests to get out of their seats and onto the dance floor, consider these your siren songs. Pro tip: while it may be tempting to add a few extra 50 Cent songs, remember to keep your ears peeled for expletives (remember, your grandmother will be listening, too).
