When it comes to planning a wedding or party, it can often feel like the task list never ends. You have to plan the timing of the event, the entertainment, the food, the décor… the list goes on and on. One thing many people often overlook when planning, is how the event should end.
One way to help ensure that your party ends on a high-not is to set a definitive end time to the party and it doesn’t just slowly fizzle out. This can easily be done by scheduling a “Last Dance” into the party schedule. For this dance it is good to pick a song that is upbeat and can entice all your guests to get out on the dance floor. The goal of the “Last Dance” is to get everyone on the dance floor for one last celebratory dance.
Depending on the song that is chosen, for example ones that start off slow, the bride and groom (or other honored guest) can start the dance off by themselves and the rest of the guests can slowly start joining in.
Popular songs to choose for the “Last Dance” are:
- “The Last Dance” Donna Summer
- “(I’ve Had) the Time of My Life”Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes
- “All Night Long” (Lionel Richie)
- “The Best Is Yet To Come” (Tony Bennett)
- “What I Like About You” (The Romantics)
- “Under Heaven’s Skies” by Collective Soul.
