Last Dance Wedding Songs

When planning your wedding music, don’t neglect your last dance. It’s your first dance’s shameless partner in crime and is just as important, coming at the end of the evening when only the strongest survive!

Both dances bookend your wedding reception party, but in a very different way. More inclusive than your intimate-yet-public first dance, your last dance can be a celebration of your family and friends who’ve made it to the very end of the biggest day of your lives with you. Or it can be centered around the happy couple, but with everyone involved in the dancefloor action.

The last song is your final farewell and provides a full stop to the whole evening, so choose a fitting track that’s perfect for your crowd. Relax and have fun with it – you’ve already picked and made it through all the most important song choices for your most nerve-wracking wedding day moments, so your final dance is your glory song, your victory lap, and the song you’ll all remember (booze-level depending) as your triumphant last wedding song. You’re winning at weddings!

Get ideas for your grand finale with this list of the best last dance wedding songs, compiled by couples and music experts. These are the tried and tested top tracks our bands and DJs are most often asked to play. You’re welcome.

There are a couple of songs that we always play at family parties as the last songs of the night... anthems and absolute tunes that get everyone up on the dancefloor!
