All the Small Things
Arguably Blink 182’s most famous song, All the Small Things has a way of getting even the most introverted wallflowers out on the dancefloor. Once you’ve had the perfect first dance with the love of your life, invite your guests to the dance floor to rock out and celebrate with you.

As a bonus, the song lyrics actually detail the charming love story of its main characters. As their lead singer muses about the values of keeping things interesting in a relationship, (“surprises let me know she cares”) you’ll be partying with your loved ones well into the night.

I Miss You
I Miss You is another unmistakable track from Blink-182, although the overall tone brings something unique to the table. With its slower tempo and lamenting lyrics, this song is more appropriate when you want to slow things down and allow guests to mingle.
While this song may not fit the cookie-cutter mold of wedding songs, the sense of nostalgia it brings will more than make up for its somber tone. Your guests will enjoy the opportunity to sit back and relax for a moment as they enjoy the beauty of your romantic event.
Another hit from Blink-182’s self-titled album Down is a perfect continuation of the more mellow period in your reception. Guests can sway to the gentle rhythm of this song on the dancefloor or chat on the sidelines with an old friend.

This is a great track to break out when things have slowed down and you want to liven the event up. This medium-tempo song will give you a smooth transition into a fun, dance-worthy hit.
While Always is definitely a more romantic song, the chorus is so infectious that everyone will be out of their seats before the end of it, singles, couples, and kids alike.
There’s no doubt that Always will take you back to the height of Blink-182’s popularity, bringing a wave of nostalgia with it.
I’m Lost Without You
One of Blink-182’s few ballads, I’m Lost Without You will keep all the lovebirds out on the dancefloor. This track is ideal for slow dances, but can also act as background music for light conversation.
As guests mingle during your reception, this track will keep the mood light and relaxed for everyone. After months of wedding planning and plenty of stress, you will be thankful for a moment to catch your breath.
You don’t have to be named Josie to enjoy this classic track by Blink-182 (but bonus points if you are!). Josie is another upbeat track that keeps things light-hearted and fun, the perfect way to invite a few more friends to let their hair down for the night.
What better way to celebrate your love story than with this song in which the singer declares his love for the girl of his dreams? In Josie, Blink-182 somehow captures all the best traits of a great partner (always brings snacks, and laughs at your bad jokes) without inching into cheesy territory.
A New Hope
This one is for couples who are just as obsessed with Blink-182 as they are with Star Wars. Yes, Blink-182 actually released a track inspired by the iconic story about a galaxy far, far away.
Even without the Star Wars references, this song is incredibly fun and catchy, which will get your guests nodding along if nothing else. While this may not be much of a dance track, it’s a great opportunity to listen for easter eggs and take a break before getting back into the swing of things.
More than anything, this song allows you to show a bit more of your character and let loose after a long, stressful day. A New Hope will set the tone for a marriage full of excitement, adventure, and plenty of laughs.
Up All Night
One of Blink-182’s newer songs, Up All Night, captures some of the best elements of the band while bringing something fresh and unique to the table. This early aughts hit is full of drum-heavy interludes, layered guitar, and unmistakable California vocals.

No wedding playlist is complete without including this iconic song from Blink-182’s self-titled album. First Date is relentlessly upbeat and positive, making it the perfect song to utilize for your send-off.
