The perfect wedding farewell song

Last song. We always ask our bride and groom what their song choice is for their last song. Farewell song, tunnel song, circle song, sparkler exit song - you name it.


This little detail shouldn't be forgotten but so often is. You want to end the night with the right vibe and that's what music is all about. We often play the last track during the farewell as the wedded pair embark off onto their happily married lives - so make it happy!


Let's break this down for you real easy.


Don't choose a song that is:

  • Overly sentimental - they've had their moment already, let them rest

  • Too slow - yes it's the end of the night, but you're tying up an awesome celebration it's not the time for lullabies.

  • Going to make all your guests cry - they already have, that'll do.

  • Going to make you cry - why? Whilst "Time to Say Goodbye" is a stunningly beautiful song, it's also perfectly suited (and a recommendation frankly) at funerals. This is your wedding!
