Introduction

Getting hitched soon? Well then, all you need is love! 

Literally and figuratively, of course, because while love is definitely the main ingredient in your wedding, you also need a killer playlist that will get your guests not only feeling all sappy and sweet, but also pumped up and ready to party!

In that case, enter our favorite fab four:
the Beatles. Easily one of history’s (and your grandparents) most beloved bands, these lads from Liverpool have practically written the textbook for swoon-worthy love songs, so why not add their timeless tunes to your wedding playlist? 

But with such a long and ever-evolving (or revolving.. Because, well, they have an album called revolver.. Sorry for that 😭) catalog of songs, it can be a bit tricky to find the ones that are most wedding-worthy.

So, to help make it easier for you, we listed down our 45 favorite Beatles wedding songs, categorizing them by romantic, slow and sentimental, and upbeat!

Romantic Beatles Wedding Songs

Like we mentioned above, John, Paul, George, and Ringo essentially wrote the blueprints for what would be the most famous love songs of today, which means that their catalog has countless tunes fit for your big day! 

To start off, there’s George Harrison’s “Something,” which is considered by Frank Sinatra (check out our Frank Sinatra wedding playlist right here 👀) to be one of the best love songs ever made! There’s also the seminal “All My Loving,” as well as “Eight Days A Week,” which speaks of a love that runs so deep our regular seven-day week just isn’t enough! 

Of course, there’s also all these other romantic Beatles wedding songs we included, all of which are perfect for either walking down the aisle or even the first dance! 

  1. “Something” (1969)
  2. “Let It Be” (1970)

Slow And Sentimental Beatles Wedding Songs

Every wedding has its own slower moments, whether it’s the cake cutting, cocktail hour, or just a quick breather for everybody before your trusty wedding DJ cranks up the reception. Luckily, the Beatles have foreseen this decades ago (it’s true, Paul texted us!) and have written plenty of slower jams that should fit the bill.

Whether it’s the classic “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” (which we’re sure your grandpa will love) or the all-time favorite “Yesterday” that will have everybody gently humming along, these slower songs should be perfect for your wedding’s more quiet moments. So, share a drink with your beloved and talk for a bit, the night’s far from over!

  2. “The Long and Winding Road” (1970)

The Beatles' Influence on Weddings and the Music Industry

The Beatles’ influence on weddings and the music industry is, in a word, immeasurable. From the early 1960s to their disbandment in 1970, the Fab Four reshaped the landscape of popular music and set the stage for countless artists to follow. 

Of course, it’s also well known that they’re one of the most successful artists of all time. For example, their songs have sold over 1 billion units worldwide, which was unseen at the time. There’s also the seminal “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” album, which sold over 32 million copies worldwide. Meanwhile, the classic “Abbey Road” follows closely with just over 31 million copies worldwide.

Fast forward to decades later, and the Beatles continue to garner millions of streams in platforms like Apple Music and Spotify, all while countless weddings have used their songs in their playlists. 

More than that, the band’s innovative approach to songwriting and recording techniques set a standard that many artists aspire to even today!

Tips for Choosing Beatles Wedding Songs

  • Consider Your Personal Connection – Are you and your partner both Beatles’ fans? Well then, start by choosing songs that already hold a personal meaning for the both of you! It’s your wedding, after all!
     
  • Explore Lesser-Known Gems – While the popular hits are beloved, don’t hesitate to explore some of The Beatles’ lesser-known tracks for a distinctive touch. You might end up discovering a new favorite!
     
  • Dance-Floor Favorites – Include a mix of upbeat songs to keep the dance floor alive and entertain guests of all ages. You can even ask your wedding DJ to make a remix of some of the songs for some extra variety!
     
  • Incorporate Variety – Mix slow and fast-paced songs to create a well-rounded musical experience throughout the celebration. This way, your guests have time to pick themselves up before raising the energy again!
     
  • Consider Instrumentals – Distracted by the words? Luckily, The Beatles also have stunning instrumental tracks that can provide elegant background music during key moments. If not, then you can always ask your wedding DJ to get instrumental versions of your favorite songs, whether they’re by the Fab Four or not.
     
  • Include Songs from Different Eras – Span the various periods of The Beatles’ career to cater to the diverse tastes of your guests. This ensures that everyone from your classic-Beatles loving grandpa to your Uncle that prefers Sgt. Peppers-era Beatles have something to vibe to!
     
     
  • Coordinate with Your Wedding DJ – We’ve also mentioned this multiple times, but again, make sure you  discuss your song preferences with your wedding DJ ahead of the event! As masters of the music booth, they are the expert at reading the crowd and matching the mood with the right song, and they’ll surely help you realize your Beatles-filled wedding playlist to its full potential!
     
  • Have Fun with It – Ultimately, your wedding day is about celebrating love, so choose songs that bring you joy and reflect your unique relationship. Don’t think too much, relax, and let your wedding DJ handle the magic for you!

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.
