Choosing The Perfect Song to End Your Wedding Reception

End your wedding reception on a high note!

End Your Wedding Reception on a High Note

It’s no secret that music can make or break a party. For a truly unforgettable wedding reception, you’ll want to choose the perfect song to end the party. According to our professional wedding DJs, the last song can really put an exclamation point on the end of a terrific night. However, deciding the last song of the night before your wedding day has even arrived can be like calling the last play of a football game before it is has even started. You don’t know what is going to be happening at the end and who will be there, so it is best to have a few options in mind. Our wedding DJs shared their favorites ways to ending your wedding reception

Slow Song

If there are a lot of couples left at the end of the night and everyone is pretty tired out from the long day of partying, ending the night on a slow song can be fitting. It is usually wise to pick something that all generations will know. You want everyone there together dancing at the end.

Sing Alongs

Playing a group favorite that’s easy to sing along to can be a fun way of ending the night. Once again bridging the generation gap can be essential if you want to have people from all age groups dancing until the end. Some guest favorite sing-along songs are “Sweet Caroline” by Neil Diamond, “Friends In Low Places” by Garth Brooks, and “Piano Man” by Billy Joel.

Leave Them Wanting More

If you have a crowd that is just tearing it up at the end of the night, there is no sense in putting ice in the boiling water. It is best to just let it flow and end on a high note. It could be your favorite club song that everybody knows, or wedding reception favorite.

“The Grease Megamix” by Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta is always a fantastic song that your guests will be singing all the way home.

Ask The Professionals

If you cannot think of anything to have played at the end, the disc jockey usually has something good in his back pocket to finish the night. That is what he gets paid for. Experienced disc jockeys have played hundreds of weddings and know how to finish it right due to their years in the business. Many times there is a great song that a guest had requested that just did not fit in earlier and yet makes the perfect last song.
