Last dance songs at weddings are the final shebang of your big day - so it's understandable that people want a memorable tune. Just imagine: the DJ is blasting your absolute favourite song. You've already had your first dance as a couple - so any nerves about busting a move have dwindled. Your perfect day is slowly winding to a close. Everyone's feeling the groove and hitting the dance floor like there's no tomorrow. I mean, the vibes are immaculate in every way, shape and form. Going for a faster song? Those upbeat bangers will no doubt bring out those dance moves you didn't even know you had. Slow jams, on the other hand, create a dreamy atmosphere for couples to share a final romantic sway. It's a rollercoaster of emotions, laughter, and maybe a few happy tears. Actually, scratch that - a LOT of happy tears. When it's time to say goodbye to an epic day of love and fun, the last dance songs are the icing on the wedding cake. That's where we come in. Here is a list of 100 songs to choose from - half upbeat, half a bit slower. Just for you!

Upbeat songs

Get ready to rock your socks off with the ultimate upbeat last dance wedding songs. When it's time to bid adieu to the dance floor, you want to go out with a bang, right? Well, that's where these tunes come in to save the day. The lights are dimmed, and the DJ drops a fantastic mix of high-energy songs that'll have your guests jumping, clapping, and throwing their hands in the air (like they just don't care, might I add.) From classic rock anthems like Bon Jovi's Livin' On A Prayer to funky pop hits like Proud Mary by Tina Turner, these songs will keep the party vibes alive and kicking. So grab your partner's hand, gather your wedding party, and let loose for one last dance-off before you call it a night. Break a leg! But please - not literally. And if you do, legally speaking, not our fault. It's just an expression.
