Tips For Picking The Best Pop Punk Songs For Your Wedding

Now that you have the ultimate pop punk wedding playlist, here are some tips to help you pick the best songs for your special day:

  • Consider Your Story – If you and your partner grew up listening to pop-punk, then consider putting your all-time favorites into the wedding playlist! It is, after all, your big day, so pick out the songs that mean the most to you!

  • Balance the Energy – Like we mentioned above, it can’t be bangers all the way through! Instead, opt for a nice flow between high-energy pop punk and slower songs to balance it out, as this will give your guests plenty of room to breathe.
  • Diversity Matters – The great thing about pop punk is that it spans into so much territory when it comes to sub-genres. Take full advantage of this to create a wildly diverse wedding playlist that can cater to different tastes and age groups in your crowd!
  • Test the Waters – Of course, it’s always good to prepare and practice. Before the actual event, visit the venue to check the acoustics, and see whether there are any noise restrictions. Keep in mind that pop punk isn’t known for being light on the ears!
  • Consider Covers – If you want fresher takes on your favorite pop punk songs, then consider playing some covers and alternate versions instead. You never know, you might even end up stumbling into a new artist altogether!


  • Consult With Your DJ – Last but not the least, consult with your DJ when picking the best pop punk wedding songs! As experts in music, your DJ can provide valuable insight and help ensure your event goes smoothly from start to finish.

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.
