Last Dance Songs – Our Top Picks

We have discussed the first dance before.

It is a romantic, tender and joyful event.

It marks the beginning of a life spent together.

However, have you given any thought to your last dance?

At the end of the wedding, when everyone has celebrated your union, there’s sometimes one more dance to give.

It marks the end of the wedding celebrations and the beginning of your honeymoon and everything you have yet to do together.

To make the moment truly magical, we’re going to be taking a look at our top selections for a last dance wedding song.

What A Wonderful World – Louis Armstrong

Anyone who listens to Louis Armstrong will know that he has a deep and sensual voice.

And in his rendition of ‘What a wonderful world’, you can hear all of the emotion he puts into the music.

It’s a beautiful song and would be perfect for the last dance of your wedding, as it conveys so many emotions and also suggests the promise of a life together.

Stand By Me – Ben E King

Another great track for your last dance is this beautiful number by Ben E King.

He’s a powerful and passionate voice, and his song tells tales of standing by someone forever, no matter what may come along and what you might face.

It’s slow, emotional and sincere, which is what the last dance should be.

Don’t Stop Me Now – Queen

Of course, if you’re not in the mood for the last dance which is slow and serene, why not go for something which is passionate, fast and exciting?

Queen’s legendary hit is one which everyone knows, and it would be perfect for a quick dance which will be one that everyone can sing along to.

Don’t Stop Believing – Journey

Another tune which is good for everyone to get involved in, Journey created something memorable when they did Don’t Stop Believing.

It’s joyful, has a good tune, and it’s got lyrics that nearly everyone knows.

You could have the entire procession of guests join in and sing along as you glide along the floor to this number, and it’ll be incredible to be a part of.

Overall, these are just a few of the best possible last dance songs that you could be dancing to at the end of your wedding.

It’s all about making sure that your last dance is important to you, so the kind of song that you go for is entirely up to you.

If you do have the last dance, then you obviously want it to be something which is sentimental, and an event that you can look back on in 20 years and smile about.

Whether you’re going for something fast and furious, or something slow and passionate, the point is that you enjoy yourself and have a good time.

We all want to be able to have a memorable first and last dance, and the music is crucial to this, as we all know that music can make or break an event.
