Last Dance Wedding Songs


Last Dance Wedding Songs

The music you choose for your wedding day will no doubt have emotional and sentimental meaning for you both.

Your walk down the aisle and your first dance especially so, but how many of us give consideration to the last song that will be played at the end of your celebration?

It’s well worth giving some thought to this if you want your party to go out with a bang and not simply fizzle out as the guests drift away.

Here are some of the most popular last dance songs to end your wedding on a high. . .

1. (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life – Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes

All being well, you will have had the time of your life at your wedding, so the Dirty Dancing favourite is a smart choice.

2. Never Forget – Take That

An anthem with an epic feel, this is one that has old friends slinging their arms around each other and singing their hearts out.

3. Don’t Stop Me Now – Queen

End the night with a last dance that’ll see you and your guests hurtling round the dance floor.

4. I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) – The Proclaimers

An oldie but goodie, there’s nothing quite like seeing all your guests marching on the spot and belting out the chorus.

5. How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You) – Marvin Gaye

Want to end the night on a sophisticated note? Enter Marvin Gaye and this Motown classic.

6. All You Need Is Love – The Beatles

Go out on a high with arguably The Beatles’ most joyous track.

7. Ain’t No Mountain High Enough – Diana Ross & The Supremes & The Temptations

More Motown magic with the Diana Ross version of a soul classic.8. Bohemian Rhapsody – Queen

This one should prompt a mass last-dance-at-the-wedding sing-along, with plenty of enthusiasm for the ‘Bismillah’ section.

9. Sweet Caroline – Neil Diamond

The advantage of choosing a ’60s classic is that the older generation will be able to sing along. Plus bonus points if one of you is called Caroline.

10. Don’t Stop Believin’ – Journey

Want to end the evening on a feel good high? It has to be this Journey favourite.
