How to Choose the Best Christian Wedding Songs

So, you’re knee-deep in wedding planning, and now comes the task of selecting the perfect Christian wedding song. Worry not because we’ve got your back on how to choose the right song without breaking a sweat (or losing your sanity! 🤯)

  • Ask for help: Let’s be real; choosing the right songs for your wedding is a serious task. Don’t be shy about asking for help. Consult your DJ, your music guru friend, or that cousin who swears they’re the next Simon Cowell. Just make sure you ask people who know you and your partner well like the back of their hands.
  • Take your time: Choosing the perfect Christian wedding song is like choosing your life partner – don’t rush it! Start early, explore different genres, and don’t be afraid to go down the YouTube rabbit hole. Besides, finding the right song is way less stressful than finding the right person, right?
  • Check the lyrics: Imagine swaying to a beautiful melody only to realize the lyrics are about heartbreak and despair. Yikes! Avoid potential lyrical mishaps by carefully reviewing the words of each song. Ensure they align with the joyous and celebratory atmosphere you want to create. After all, you don’t want your first dance to turn into an unintentional therapy session.

Final Thoughts

In conclusion, the song you choose should be a celebration of your big day. So, whether you’re grooving to gospel or twirling to a jazzy beat, let your Christian wedding song be a reflection of your journey, your personalities, and the love that binds you.

As you go through Christian wedding ceremony songs,  don’t forget to collaborate with your DJ or band and expect the unexpected. After all, it’s the unexpected moments that make your wedding day uniquely yours!

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.
