What better way to bid adieu to your celebration than with the perfect wedding send off song? But with countless melodies to choose from, how do you find the best one for you? Here are some tips to help you make the best decision:

1. Look Back on Your Relationship

Before you get overwhelmed by song choices, take a moment to think about your journey together. Consider the ups, the downs, and all the stuff in between. Your send off wedding song should reflect your story, so find lyrics that match your experience as a couple. If you’ve faced some hurdles together, a song about overcoming challenges could add a nice touch to your farewell.

2. Match It with Your Wedding Theme

Every wedding has its own style, whether it’s a rustic outdoor affair or a modern city celebration. Your send off wedding song should gel with the overall theme and vibe of your day. If you had a vintage theme, think about going for a classic jazz or swing number. For a more modern vibe, a pop or electronic dance music track could be the way to go. Make sure your song fits the atmosphere you want for your send-off.

3. Consider Your Music Preferences

Your send off wedding song is a chance to showcase your music taste. Think about the genres you both enjoy. Whether it’s country, rock, jazz, or anything in between, go for a style that feels true to your relationship. If you both love a particular artist or band, explore their catalog for a fitting send-off song. Connecting with a song you both love will make your exit extra special.

4. Check the Beat

The tempo of your send off wedding song sets the mood for your exit. If you want a lively and fun farewell, go for an upbeat song that gets everyone clapping. If you’re leaning towards a more chilled-out vibe, pick a slower song with a good melody. Think about the atmosphere you’re aiming for and choose a song that matches the tempo.

5. Get Expert Advice

Choosing the right send-off wedding song can be a bit tricky, so don’t hesitate to get some professional input. Talk to your wedding DJ, music coordinator, or any friends who know their tunes. They’ve likely been around the wedding music block and can help you navigate the options. Share your preferences, theme, and what you want from the send-off, and let them guide you to some solid choices.

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.
