3 Ideas for Great Last Songs for Weddings

When it comes to wedding music, the first dance and parent dances are often carefully planned. But planning a creative last dance song is something many couples overlook. Yet, having a last song played at your wedding can be a nice way to tie the event together and say your farewells. We decided to look at the most popular last song choices for your perfect Hudson Valley wedding.

Sweet Last Song Ideas

A good last song can be a sweet song that reflects the romantic nature of the event. It can be a nice way to put a smile on everyone’s face and to reflect the loving atmosphere at your ceremony. There are plenty of good song choices out there for you to choose to this purpose.

You could go with Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes’ (I’ve Had) TheTime of My Life. This is such a romantic song and it is a great way of saying ‘thank you’ for your guests as well. Another such song could be The Wanted’s Glad You Came.

Swing and jazz are both big things in wedding music at the moment. Therefore you could pick FlyMe to the Moon by Frank Sinatra as a sweet last song. The lyrics are really good and the song itself is a very sweet and upbeat one. Another good idea is to go with Ben E. Kings’ Stand By Me. This is such a classic song and it goes well with the theme of sweet last songs.

Upbeat Last Song Ideas

Last song doesn’t necessarily need to be a slow song. It might be more your style to end the night with a bang. Selecting a really cheerful and upbeat song can be a great way to get everyone on their feet.

Bon Jovi’s Living on a Prayer is a big favorite when it comes to last songs. It is both upbeat and something that everyone wants to sing along to. Another old rock classic could be AC/DC’s You Shook Me All Night Long.

Another guaranteed way to get everyone on the dance floor is to play LMFAO’s Party Rock Anthem. This is a great upbeat song that will finish your night on a high note. DaftPunk’s One More Time could also act as a great encore.

Funny Last Song Ideas

You could also show your playful side with your song selection. The last dance can be a great way to make people laugh. The world is full of fun songs that suit the last dance situation very well. 

You can guarantee people know it is time to leave by playing Cascada’s Evacuate the Dance Flooras your last song. It is a good song with a clear message for your guests. Another similar tongue-in-cheek song choice could be Hit the Road Jack by Ray Charles. If you know your guests have a good sense of humor then this is the song for you.
