The best end of night songs for your wedding

Last dance songs are the ones that end your wedding reception on a high. Grandparents might have sloped off to bed early, but for the majority of your wedding guests, this is their final chance to do their thing on the dance floor, celebrate the best day ever with you and give the newlyweds a perfect send-off.

Always get your DJ (or band, or whoever’s running your playlist) to announce that it’s the last song so everyone gets to the dance floor.

How to Choose Your Last Dance Song

There are two main choices for last dance wedding songs. 1) An upbeat track that everyone will sing along to and dance like a loon – Mr Brightside is the perfect example. 2) A romantic slow dance to end your wedding on a tender note, e.g. Etta James’ At Last. Both are equally great. Personally, we like doing both!

Check out our list of the best tracks to play at the end of your Wedding. These are not the same old songs that you heard at every wedding you went to last year. Frank Sinatra's New York New York is a great track to end the night on but, lets be honest. Its been done a thousand times!

We strongly believe DJing is a craft, not just a Spotify playlist. Becoming a great DJ takes time, skill and experience. It involves digging for records through the decades, finding rare edits and remixes that surprise and delight. It means reading the room, taking the crowd on a journey, moving through genres and tempos, building an atmosphere and bringing everyone together without resorting to tired, overplayed records whilst keeping a keen eye on timeless classics.

- Signature Moments -

We are a small collective of top level DJs that play at festivals, corporate events, parties and weddings. We are friendly, approachable and talented DJ's with years of experience.

 - How We Work -

We mix, we scratch, we beat match, but we always respect the music. We play with cd decks or professional DJ controllers and will never turn up with just a laptop. We work with you to find the songs you love and songs you hate. We won't play Agadoo, YMCA or Macarena - unless you really want us too.
