How to Choose the Right 2000s Wedding Songs

Selecting the perfect 2000s song for your wedding day is a significant decision that sets the tone for the celebration. Here are some tips to keep in mind:

  • Reflect on Shared Memories: Consider songs that hold sentimental value, perhaps tunes that were popular during your first date or that played in the background of a memorable vacation. For instance, if your proposal took place during a romantic getaway, incorporating a song from that era, like “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz, can add a personal touch to your celebration.
  • Consider Your Musical Tastes: Choose songs that align with your musical preferences as a couple. Whether you both enjoy pop, R&B, country, rock, or dance, finding common ground in your favourite genre can help create a cohesive and enjoyable playlist. If you bonded over R&B hits, incorporating a classic like “Crazy in Love” by Beyoncé and Jay-Z as your entrance song can infuse energy and excitement into your ceremony.
  • Consider the lyrics: Pay attention to the lyrics of each song to ensure they align with the mood you want to convey. While the 2000s had many romantic hits, it’s essential to avoid songs with themes of heartbreak or separation. Opt for love-centric lyrics that highlight the joyous occasion. For instance, “Bless the Broken Road” by Rascal Flatts beautifully captures the sentiment of finding love and navigating life’s journeys together, making it a fitting choice for a wedding song.

What to Avoid When Choosing 2000s Wedding Songs

While selecting the songs for your wedding, it’s equally crucial to be mindful of what to avoid to ensure a seamless and memorable celebration. Here are tips to steer clear of pitfalls when choosing your 2000s wedding songs:

  • Mind the Tempo for Dance Floor Success: Avoid songs that are too slow or too fast, as they may hinder guests from comfortably dancing and enjoying the moment. Strike a balance by incorporating songs like “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” by Justin Timberlake, which offers an upbeat tempo without being overwhelming.
  • Consider Cultural Sensitivity: Be mindful of the cultural backgrounds of both you and your guests when choosing 2000s wedding songs. For example, if your wedding has a diverse audience, steer clear of songs that are culturally specific or may not resonate universally. Opt for more inclusive choices like “Happy” by Pharrell Williams that can appeal to a broad range of tastes.
  • Don’t Force a Connection: While it’s great to have a personal connection with your chosen 2000s wedding songs, avoid forcing significance onto a track simply because it’s popular or trendy. For instance, if a chart-topping song doesn’t align with your shared experiences, it’s okay to skip it in favour of a song that holds genuine meaning for you both.

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.
