Upbeat

Taylor Swift’s upbeat songs are like the ultimate wedding hype squad. Take “Shake It Off” – it’s basically the anthem for leaving any wedding drama at the door. But my personal favourite has to be “22” – because, let’s face it, who doesn’t want to feel like they’re 22 at their wedding? It’s like Taylor’s reminding us that love doesn’t age, and neither should the party!

  1. “Shake It Off” (2014)
  2. “22” (2012)
  3. “Love Story” (2008)
  4. “Welcome to New York” (2014)

Heartwarming and Romantic

If I had to pick my own favourite Taylor Swift song, it would be “Wildest Dreams.” It’s like Taylor bottled up that dreamy, head-over-heels feeling and turned it into music. Perfect for those moments when you look at your partner and think, “Yep, you’re my wildest dream come true.” Picture this playing during your first dance, and you’re practically waltzing in a real-life fairy tale.

  10. “Call It What You Want” (2017)

Sweet and Sentimental Slow Dances

Let’s talk slow dances and Taylor Swift – the combo that turns your wedding into a real-life romance movie. “Begin Again” is like a slow dance in a cozy living room, just you and your love, feeling like the only two people in the world.  These songs are sweet, sentimental, and they’ll make your slow dance a moment you’ll replay in your mind forever. 

  1. “All Too Well” (2012)

Taylor Swift’s “Paper Rings” is basically saying, “Who needs fancy bling when we can have fun and paper rings?” It’s playful, it’s light-hearted, and it’s perfect for those couples who love a good laugh. These cute songs are  fun, they’re cheeky, and they’ll turn your big day into a big, joyful party.

How To Choose The Best Taylor Swift Wedding Songs

So, you’ve decided to infuse a bit of Taylor Swift enchantment into your big day? Awesome! Grab your glitzy pen and gear up to choose the perfect song that even T-Swizzle herself would approve of!

  • Match the mood to your wedding theme: Is your wedding going to be a classy affair or a dance party to end all dance parties? Match your song choices to the overall wedding theme you want. Throw in some upbeat tracks like “22” and “New Romantics” to kick off the celebration or slow it down with dreamy ballads like “Lover” for those heart-to-heart moments.
  • Be careful with timing: Every part of your wedding day deserves its own special theme music. Imagine walking down the aisle to “Love Story” or doing your first dance to the swoon-worthy “You Are In Love.” Timing is key, my friends. Upbeat tunes for the entrances and exits, slow jams for the romantic bits – you got this!
  • Unearth the hidden gems: Sure, everyone knows “Shake It Off” and “Love Story,” but have you dug deep into the treasure trove of Taylor’s lesser-known songs? Tracks like “Holy Ground” and “Starlight” might just be the secret sauce your playlist needs. Bonus Tip: If your playlist is missing that “wow” factor, you may want to dig deeper into Taylor’s catalog.
  • Read between the lyrics: Taylor Swift is the queen of storytelling, so pay attention to those lyrics! Choose songs that not only sound good but also tell your love story in a way that even Shakespeare would envy. Additionally, Miss Swift has a lot of heartbreak songs that you want to stay away from, so really look into those lyrics with hawk eyes!
  • Let the theme be your guide: Taylor Swift’s songs often have distinct themes – from nostalgia to empowerment. Pick songs that align with your couple vibes. Are you the nostalgic type? “Fifteen” might be your jam. Feeling empowered? Cue up “Bad Blood” and strut down that aisle like it’s a runway.

What to Avoid When Picking The Best Taylor Swift Wedding Songs

Before you go full Swiftie on your selections, let’s chat about what to avoid to ensure your musical journey down the aisle stays more “Love Story” and less “Bad Blood.” Because, let’s face it, we don’t want your wedding song to be the subject of the next breakup anthem

  • Overdoing the breakup anthems: While Taylor Swift is the undisputed queen of breakup anthems, your wedding day isn’t the time to dwell on heartaches and exes. So, as much as you love “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” let’s keep that particular anthem on the shelf for now. Save the breakup anthems for your solo car karaoke sessions – it’s where they truly shine!
  • Getting stuck in a single era: While the classics like “Love Story” and “You Belong with Me” are timeless, don’t limit yourself to a single era of Taylor Swift. She’s evolved like a Pokémon, and her newer tracks might just be the missing piece to your musical puzzle. Embrace the full Swift spectrum – from the country twang of “Tim McGraw” to the synth-pop vibes of “ME!” 
  • Overloading on the ‘love gone wrong’ theme: We get it; Taylor Swift writes about love – the good, the bad, and the “I’m-going-to-write-a-song-about-this” kind. But too much of the ‘love gone wrong’ theme might turn your wedding into a tearjerker. So, while “All Too Well” is a lyrical masterpiece, mixing in too many heartbreak ballads might have your guests questioning if they accidentally stumbled into a breakup talk session.
  • Neglecting the crowd favourites: You may have your personal Taylor Swift favourites, but remember, you’re not the only one attending your wedding. So, while the deep cuts are great for the Swiftie in you, throw in some crowd-pleasers. Classics like “Love Story” and “Shake It Off” are sure to get everyone, from your grandma to your teenage cousin, on the dance floor.

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.
