9 Songs To Consider For Your Wedding’s Grand Finale

There are many important songs throughout your wedding night – your first song as Husband and Wife, the track for the Father-Daughter dance, and even the playlist suggestions that you give to your band or DJ to help them keep your guests on the dance-floor.

One song that is often overlooked is the last song of the night, which should be given special consideration. This is the grand finale of your wedding celebrations, and the song that begins the new chapter of your life as Husband and Wife.

Here are nine of our favourites:

  1. The Beatles – All You Need Is Love

If you want to end the evening with a little romance, a sing-along, and a mellower tune, this one ticks all of the boxes.

  1. Journey – Don’t Stop Believing

End the night on a high with this energetic track that was given a new lease of life by TV show, Glee.

  1. Queen – Don’t Stop Me Now

If you are having an after party, this song will keep guests in high spirits.

  1. Donna Summer – Last Dance

Finish the evening dancing with your new Husband to a song that has sentimental meaning.

  1. Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes – I’ve Had the Time of My Life

It may not be the most original last dance song, but it is definitely one of the best.

  1. Take That – Rule the World

Take That were one of the biggest boy bands of the 90’s, and their comeback has resulted in some of the most romantic songs known to mankind. This one is a great choice for the last song of the night.

  1. Michael Buble – Save The Last Dance For Me

Michael Buble’s dulcet tones are a great way to end the night, with a song that has literal but lovely meaning.

  1. Katrina and the Waves – Walking on Sunshine

Considering it is the end of a long day and night, albeit one of the happiest and most energetic days of your life, it might be a good idea to end on such a positive song.

  1. Grease – We Go Together

The Grease Megamix is a common and popular song for wedding discos, but We Go Together is a great song to end the night on, with hopefully everyone joining in. Line up with the ladies on one side of the dance-floor and the gents on the other, and go through a human tunnel in pairs.
