Sweet Caroline – Neil Diamond

Everyone knows all the words to this song although no one ever remembers learning them. If you want the dance floor full and everyone singing along, go for this one.

I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) – The Proclaimers

If you’re Peter Kay fans, this is a no-brainer, but it’s also a good choice for a cheerful, upbeat tune that’ll have everyone on the dance floor.

Don’t Stop Believing – Journey

It’s up to you and your partner whether you go for the original Journey version or the slightly cheesier Glee take on the classic…

Happy – Pharrell Williams

Everyone will be feeling pretty happy and possibly a bit tipsy so end your day on a high with this very happy song.

Hey Ho – The Lumineers

‘I belong to you/You belong to me/You’re my sweetheart’ – these lyrics are gorgeous and it’s a beautifully sentimental but still upbeat wedding song.

New York New York – Frank Sinatra

This has to be the ultimate end of night song so why not go for it!!

Whatever song you choose, enjoy every minute of, this marks the end of the evening and all your planning!

Next stop Honeymoon!!!
