No-one ever wants a party to come to an end, and there’s no party we’d want to see carry on forever more than a dazzling reception celebrating your union to the love of your life.

Unfortunately, all good things have to come to an end. And because it’s your reception, you can make sure you make the final dance floor song is one to remember.

The final song you choose will no doubt be one that’s meaningful not only to you and your significant other but also to your guests. Last songs tend to fall into one of three categories, usually determined by the taste of the married couple.

Sentimental Songs

There’s no better way to wind down a day of celebrating love than with a well-known love story in poetic form.

An enduring favourite is “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life” from the Dirty Dancing movie. Not only is this film a nostalgia trip, but the lyrics are perfectly suited to dedicating the final dance of the night to your loved one.

“You Make My Dreams Come True” by Hall and Oates also sets the perfect mood for a slow, romantic dance before you call it a night.

If you want to go sentimental, but a little more upbeat, “Dancing in the Moonlight” by Toploader is a beautiful way to end the evening.

Rock Classics

If you’ve still got the energy to burn before you call it a night, and you’re the kind of couple who loves a throwback tune, then classic rock tracks are a great way to finish with a bang.

A firm favourite of Millennials everywhere, “Mr Brightside” by The Killers never fails to get everyone singing along. And, if you’re the silly kind of couple who loves to have fun, marching around the dancefloor to “500 Miles” by the Proclaimers will leave you giggling at the end of the night.

“Teenage Dirtbag” by Wheatus is a great pop-punk anthem and makes a great last dance song with its story of two star-crossed lovers coming together over their shared love of music.

Upbeat Party Tracks

For couples who love to party, ending the night on a pop banger can be a fantastic testament to the music that brought you together.

If you still want something a little sentimental, “You’ve Got The Love” by Florence in the Machine is a great track to go gooey-eyed over at the end of the night.

“Feel So Close” by Calvin Harris is also a bouncy track that’ll get you burning the last of your wedding adrenaline before you collapse into bed.

Although this option is a little too on the nose for some couples, “Marry You” by Bruno Mars remains a firm favourite for drunk couples loudly proclaiming their love at the end of their reception.
