Music can be a very personal thing, especially the music you want to be played at your wedding. But, keep in mind the music you and your fiancé pick sitting at home watching The Crown is not the same music that keeps the dance floor packed at your wedding.
We love hearing from DJs about what they see and the wealth of knowledge they share with their couples.
This week we heard from Lou Guzzo of SE Events, a Perfect Wedding Guide vendor in our Atlanta Perfect Wedding Guide Market.
Can you imagine a couple, very intent on picking every song to be played? They give us a list of 20 to 30 songs. They put so much time and energy into the right song for the first dance, parent dances, cake cutting and even bouquet toss! Then, more times than not, the couple picks the last song as an afterthought.
This song will not make or break your wedding by any means, but it is the song everyone will remember. It’s the song they will be humming on the trip back to the hotel or their home!
This song can be one amazing full dance floor shot for the photographer. This could be one of the most important songs we play to cap the event off just right.
Lou shared the Top 10 Most Requested Last Dance Songs by couples just like you!
Take me home tonight- Eddie Money
This blast from the 80’s past is a fun, upbeat song everyone can dance and sing too!
Bye, Bye, Bye- N’sync
This 90’s boy band has the perfect song title for the last dance during a wedding. The best is when the guys all do the dance!
Last Dance- Donna Summers
This song has been a staple as the last dance for the moment it was released in the Disco area!
Sweet Caroline- Neil Diamond
Talk about sing along! I personally like to use this song more during the party than wait for it as the last dance!
Friends in Low Places- Garth Brooks
This is a great song for all the couple to dance and sing to. Plus, it has the added bonus of the whole crowd singing along!
Piano Man- Billy Joel
I am from NY, and this is a must to play for my family! Great sing along that all the Uncles, Aunts, & Grandparents know!
Save the last dance for me- Michael Buble
For that couple who needs to cha-cha and really have that upbeat ballroom feel for last dance!
(I’ve had) The time of my life- Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes
No one puts baby in the corner! All your friends and family will be up dancing to this one. Just practice the lift before the wedding date!
Closing Time- Semisonic
Truth be told, this song is better to clear the room than rock it as the last dance. I do try to let my wedding couples know that!
Don’t Stop Believin’- Journey
The ultimate last dance and party song! I have never seen this song fail! This song will cap off your celebration!
Thanks, Lou! We appreciate your fantastic insight and expertise from SE Event
