Top 5 Wedding Last Dance Songs

by Friday 24th July 2020blog, music

Are you at the final stage of the planning for your wedding and finalising your song choices for the evening reception? Make sure to designate some time in your busy schedule to do some research and discuss what song you would like for your last dance. This is a really important song that you will need to think about, as it is the last song that will be played at your wedding and that will finish the day off before the lights come on and your guests leave for home or their rooms.

Speak to your DJ about this beforehand whether it’s for advice on choosing a song or to see how they will stage the last dance on the evening. You want to speak to them to make sure they will announce the last dance in advance so nobody misses the final dance of the wedding, as you will want to be surrounded by your family and friends as your special day draws to an end.

To help with your decision I have put together below the top 5 last dance song choices by our couples to give you some inspiration:

  1. Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes – (I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life
  2. Take That – Never Forget
  3. Killers – Mr Brightside
  4. Oasis – Wonderwall
  5. Evan Williams – Loch Lomond

You will need to decide if you want to end on a slow song for everyone to gather in a circle and sing along together, or an upbeat fast party song to end on a high with everyone using up their last energy to give all they’ve got for their final moves on the Dance Floor. I would recommend trying to go for a song that you know most of your guests will know, this way you will know that the majority of your guests will be able to get really involved.
