Top 30 Most Requested Songs for Last Dance

Top 30 Most Requested Songs for Last Dance

The day you have planned for so long has happened: your wedding day. You are surrounded by your friends and family who have watched you tie the knot and then you’ve celebrated with a feast, a first dance, some amazing (or awkward!) speeches, cut the cake, thrown the bouquet and now it’s time to go home. How do you want to wrap up this incredible event? Many couples are now making a statement with their last dance song.  After all, it’s the final moment of the wedding and your last chance show your personality as a couple and have the send off you want.

For a sweet and romantic last dance, think Michael Buble’s ‘Save the last dance for me’ or one of the most beautiful love songs ever written, Etta James with ‘At Last’. A great version of the same song was recorded by Beyoncé recently, so you may want to let Queen B have the last word at your wedding.

For a funny and more literal last dance song (and maybe a polite hint to those guests that don’t seem to have any intention of leaving), there is always Semisonic’s ‘Closing Time’ or N’Sync’s ‘Bye, Bye, Bye’.

Ultimately, it is hard to go past the classic Dirty Dancing duet from Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes, ‘(I’ve Had) The time of my life’ because it so well captures the fun and romance of a wedding, and is a great finishing song. But if you feel that you may be under too much pressure to do a big aerial dance move with your new spouse (!) there is The Black Eyed Peas song The Time (Dirty Bit) that samples the chorus and will have your guests dancing out the door.
