Top 10 Songs To End The Night at Your Wedding Reception


What do you want your guests to remember? How you close the night at your wedding reception is important. Do you want to leave your guests going away saying “Wow!” Filled with energy? Fast, slow, something in between, there are several ways to the end the night.

Here are our top 10 picks for songs to close the night:

I Got A Feeling- Black Eyed Peas

Closing Time- Semisonic

That’s What Friends are For- Dionne Warwick

Send Me On My Way- Rusted Root

Piano Man- Billy Joel

Don’t Stop Believin- Journey

End with the Bride and Groom’s first dance, inviting everyone out to the dance floor

Sweet Caroline- Neil Diamond

Last Dance- Donna Summer

These Are Days- 10,000 Maniacs

There are several songs that are great contenders as last songs. It’s all in the mood that you want to set with your guests. A fast song will keep the energy high and alive, a sing a long works well too, and it gets everyone involved. Some couples opt for playing their first dance again, and inviting all guests to the dance floor, this works well.

Finally, forming a circle and playing something like That’s what friends are for, works well with everyone locking arms. Your DJ could even loop the toasts from the beginning of the night back into the song. What a way to end the night!
