After you've had your first dance, the wedding cake has been cut, the bouquet has been tossed, and all the other wedding reception festivities have had their moment, it's time for the last dance. As much as you don't want your wedding to end, you do want to give your guests a happy, lasting memory of that final spin around the dance floor! And when it comes to what song to play for that moment, you have a ton of options.
Unlike the first dance or father-daughter dance, there's slightly less sentimental value for this musical number. Instead, it's more of a fun, everyone-on-their-feet-now tune to cap off what's likely been the best day of your life. To help you get in the mood for that joyous moment, we created a Spotify playlist of some great songs to end your wedding with.
For those who want to rock, we included AC/DC's "You Shook Me All Night Long" and two Queen classics, "Don't Stop Me Now" and "Bohemian Rhapsody." As for the classics, well, there's nothing like Donna Summer's "Last Dance" (probably the most popular one of all, and understandably so) and The Isley Brothers' "Shout." More modern, upbeat dance hits are also a fantastic choice; we happen to love "Feel So Close" by Calvin Harris and "The Time (Dirty Bit)" by The Black Eyed Peas.
A little bit sentimental and a whole lot of fun, these last dance song ideas are guaranteed to get you thinking about how to create the perfect musical end to your wedding. Sit back, relax, and get listening!
