Songs To End Your Wedding Reception With

This post may contain affiliate links

If you need some inspiration for the end of your wedding night I’ve put together this fab list of songs that should get everyone either dancing or smooching, whichever you’d prefer!

It’s the end of the night and you want your wedding reception to end with a bang.

So which song to choose to end the night?

Do you want everyone on the dancefloor singing along? Stood in a circle with ties around their heads?

Or something more relaxed with couples slow dancing while you take the last dance of the day with your new spouse?

Whatever you’re looking for, here is a list of songs that are perfect for ending your wedding day. Don’t forget to have a chat with your DJ so they know what song to use and can announce it as the last song of the night.

The songs I’ve included here are mostly classics from a range of eras and genres. Of course, you might have your own special song you want to end the night with but if you don’t these should give you some inspiration.

Oh, and I’ve left out the cheese!

While I love some cheesy party tunes as much as the next person, especially if they include a dance everyone knows but I don’t think by Steps is quite the right note to end a wedding on!
