Finish big. You should be having so much fun at your Chicago wedding that you never want it to end – but when it does, it’s sure nice ending on a high note.

What kind of music does that best? There are a couple ways to go: the romantic slowdance song. The big farewell. And, of course, the rollicking, breathless last bang.

Whatever song your DJ ends with, it ought to be something that all your guests can get into. You could even pick several options – a fast and a slow choice, for example – so your DJ can read the mood when the time comes. Here are 12 favorite last-dance ideas from Backthird Entertainment’s DJs to get you thinking.
