I can’t decide if I want to do something super upbeat or something more sweet/memorable. I recently am considering Amos Lee–“Flower”. Your thoughts? Too slow/mild? Should I bust out the Journey power ballads for the last dance?? 😉
Her last song was Save the Last Dance for Me which is sweet but also fun and upbeat!
Then, she and her new hubby were going to be going out to a bar called Top of the Stairs, or Tots, after the reception to party it up a little bit more. As their way of inviting everyone, they had the DJ played Shots but instead my sis and her hubby sang “tots tots tots…” to invite people out with them!
We wanted one last slow song (we didnt have any slow songs besides first dances) so we played “then” by brad paisley as our second to last song then had it go right into Michael Franti’s “say, hey i love you” which was an awesome way to end the night.
At every wedding I’ve been to, almost, the last song has been Last Dance for Me. We also plan on no slow songs except for the traditional dances at the beginning…Fiance and I aren’t big slow dancers, we kind of look like middle-schoolers.
I thought I wanted a slow song to taper the night off, but then the DJ suggested a fast one to go out with a bang so we went with that. He played the slow one I wanted to end with, then made an announcement of the final song and got everyone jumping again right before calling it quits.
Okay, sounds like the consensus is to definitely end with something super upbeat and dance-evoking. Maybe “Flower” can be the second-to-last song of the night. I just really like it and it is so happy sounding, but also mellow and lovey. Does that even make sense?
