The Last Dance

It's often said that all good things must come to an end. With a good marriage this is never quite true, because new experiences are always happening and cherished memories live on forever. However, at some point a wedding day will have to draw to a close and friends and family will have to part ways wishing the newlyweds the best of luck as they journey in a new direction together. If there were ever a more fitting moment to end a wedding, it would have to be the last dance. Traditionally the last dance is the last dance of the night. This dance is reserved for anyone left standing or dancing at the event hall or usually anyone who has toughed it out and stuck around until the end of the night. As always, the birde and the groom are invited to the dance floor as is everyone else. When the dance ends, good-byes and well-wishes are said before the newlyweds travel down a new road together.

This Floor Stays Packed Even Up To The Last Dance

Often the last dance is the most tearfelt portion of the evening. People who have danced all night are brought back to reality with the announcement that the song will be the last one of the night. When choosing a last dance song, planners should choose a song that is very reflective of the love and devotion surrounding the happy couple. Songs that hold meaning to the guests of honor and that will remind them of their love for each other are often the best songs for this dance. Any style of music can work for this dance, but it is best suited with soft romantic or soothing instrumental and should also help put people in the mood for saying good-bye. Sometimes the songs that go over best are the ones that mention last dance or good-bye but that is dependant upon the mood of the event. With the Digital DJz library backing planners up, there should be no concern over finding the last dance song that will work best for an event and instead the concern may better be focused on the honeymoon and what will take place next.

We have included a list of some of frequently used or popular last dance songs below and we encourage our clients to go over the list and then look for them in our on-line database, listen to them, and decide whether or not that specific song is right for their needs. And if the song isn't and we don't have the song that they seek, we encourage them to contact us with their song suggestion or requests and we will work at getting that song in our database in time for their wedding reception.
