Tips For Picking George Strait Wedding Songs

Newlyweds and their family while one of our DJs play George Strait wedding songs.
  • Consider your wedding theme – Have a wedding theme in mind? Then make sure you pick songs that align with the overall theme and ambiance of your wedding. Country music like George Strait, Rod Stewart, Keith Urban, etc. for example, would work very well with a backyard or rustic-themed wedding.
     
  • Personalize your playlist – Other than picking songs that will fit your wedding theme, make sure you also choose songs that already hold special meaning to you and your partner, whether it’s a song that played during your first date or one that you think perfectly captures your love story. Of course, we’re talking about George Strait wedding songs here, so make sure to throw in some of your favorite songs of his as well!

     

  • Mix it up – Unless you’re going for a George Strait-themed wedding, then we also suggest throwing in some other artists to that playlist! For example, you can add some classics like The Beatles for the grandparents, some John Mayer for the gentlemen, and Lana Del Rey for the women in your guest book! This way, you can keep all of your guests engaged and entertained throughout the celebration.

     

  • Consult with your wedding DJ – Of course, we also suggest working closely with your wedding DJ (they’re the experts, after all!) in order to create a curated playlist that not only reflects your taste, but also has everybody’s preferences in mind. This way, your wedding will flow smoothly and everybody will leave after having had a great time!
     
  • Practice your first dance – If you’ve chosen a George Strait song for your first dance, take some time to practice together and add your own flair to make it truly memorable. And hey, this counts as extra bonding time between you and your partner right before the big day!

The #1 problem clients face...

As I’m sure you’re aware, we live in a world where people fear commitment. People leave all of their options open, because they’re afraid they might end up loosing out on a future opportunity that might be superior to what is right in front of them.

Yet this way of thinking is wrong… But why?

Because by failure to commit to something, the best options available become unavailable. What we thought was a sure thing, ends up becoming a missed opportunity. Through our deliberate action of inaction, we’re soon presented with second-tier options. Options that you wish you could’ve avoided in the first place. But you’ve already committed to the idea of hiring a DJ, so you end up going through with it anyway, and you choose whoever is available because you don’t want to completely miss out. But you know in your heart it didn’t feel like the right choice. And when the money is spent, and the performance is over, you’re disappointed. And you tell yourself: never again. Yet just like a teenager who claims to never drink again after binge drinking the night before, we end up in a cycle of never committing, and always being stuck with bad alternatives. Deep down inside, we’re unhappy. And we’re left with regret.

Amazing opportunities don't last long.

DJing.ca only performs at 125 corporate events per year,  and performs in front of companies such as McLaren, FlyOver Canada, and ActiveState. As we get more referrals each year, the number of calls & emails continues to grow. 

And with good reason.

Having a 100% satisfaction rate, we keep getting referrals. That’s what happens when you are Vancouver’s best DJs.

I know a lot of other people claim that, but here’s the facts:

We spent an entire year, or 4,000+ hours (yes, we’re work-a-holics) searching through 350 DJs, only to find the top 15 that met our expectations based on personality, experience, and professionalism. If any DJ doesn’t receive a 5/5 star rating from clients (just like yourself), they do not meet the requirements of our contract and can no longer work with us.

And here’s the kicker…

To date we haven’t had to remove anyone.

If you want your event to be truly amazing, don’t hesitate. Fill out the form, we’re here to help. Let’s work together to make your vision come to life.
