What song to play last at my wedding? - Final song ideas by Yorkshire wedding band SouthWestBand

Your wedding day is almost over, it's been a perfect day and what better way to conclude the celebrations than with the perfect song that encapsulates your journey together? As SouthWestBand, we've curated a list of 6 top tunes to end your wedding night on a high note:

"Never Forget" by Take That: Why it Works: Heaps of nostalgia in this 90s classic. Watch every one of your guests throw their arms up in the chorus. It has a nice outro we can get one last cheer from your guests as the final notes ring out on the epic night you just had together.

"New York, New York" by Frank Sinatra: Why it Works: It's a classic song from a classy artist. It has universal appeal and pretty much every guest at your wedding will have heard it. We can gather your guests in a big circle and have those legs kicking while Frank swoons away.

"Angels" by Robbie Williams: Why it Works: Another throwback for all you 90s kids. Angels is an iconic tune by an artist every present growing up as a millennial. Pretty much every one of your guests will know the words and sing along to this classic.

"Love Story" by Taylor Swift: Why it Works: A modern classic, "Love Story" by Taylor Swift has quickly become a final song favourite by Millennials and Gen Z couples alike. The tune blew up on TikTok recently and has since seen many a Swifty guest act out the proposal during the bridge section before jumping up together as that key change hits.

"Wonderwall" by Oasis: Why it Works: To be fair there are a few Oasis songs we could have put in this spot but opted for the classic "Wonderwall." It's an indie anthem that has stood the test of time. Its catchy melody and meaningful lyrics make it a fantastic choice to wrap up your wedding party. The song's universal appeal ensures that guests of all ages will connect with it.

"Good Riddance (Time of your Life)" by Green Day: Why it Works: If you're looking for something a little more alternative then this classic by Green Day is a great choice. Poignant lyrics and a melody most of your guests will recognize it'll have you feeling all of the feels. Doesn't get much better as the last line of the song and the full stop to your your perfect day, "I hope you had the time of your life".
