It’s been a great wedding reception, and you really don’t want it to end, but the venue will charge extra if guests aren’t out by midnight. If you only had one final song to listen to, what would it be? Any one person may choose a song that speaks to them, but choosing the best last song that speaks to many can be a challenge. Our Kansas City Wedding DJs have tested these tried and true last song favorites, and have found the best!
15 Best Last Songs for your Wedding by Kansas City Wedding DJs
These songs help not only signal to your guests that it’s just about time to leave, but they also help the wedding wind down. While we want the dance party to continue on forever, you will literally be kicked out by the event staff, since they want to go home at some point. Our Complete Weddings + Events DJs know how to wrap things up with one last memorable moment.
Great final wedding songs are typically sing-a-long tunes, that people can gather their things to or huddle up and hold each other for one last belt out in unison. Here is our list of the Top 15 best last songs to close out your wedding!
- “(I’ve Had) the Time Of My Life” Bill Medley, Jennifer Warnes
- “Closing Time” Semisonic
- “Last Dance” Donna Summer
- “Saved the Best For Last” Vanessa Williams
- “Bennie and the Jets” Elton John
- “Bohemian Rhapsody” Queen
- “Piano Man” Billy Joel
- “Grow Old With You” Adam Sandler
- “Mr Brightside” The Killers
- “This Will Be” Natalie Cole
- “Another One Bites The Dust” Queen
- “Don’t Stop Believing” Journey
- “Somebody to Love” Queen
- “Get Up Offa That Thing” James Brown
- “S.O.B.” Nathaniel Ratliff & The Night Sweats
Kansas City DJ Logan Kullman adds that another option for great final song for a wedding night is to play “what the couple’s first dance song was.” This works to end the dance floor on the same song it started with, bringing the night full circle. It’s also quite romantic for the couple to hear that special song one last time.
Feel free to give these songs a listen on our Spotify playlist, but our DJs have tested each of these songs and will help read your crowd through the night to see which may work best for you. We’d love to hear your suggestions as well. Connect with us on what you prefer to played for your event!
