Introduction

Here comes the bride!

Imagine this: The doors swing open, and the crowd turns their eager eyes toward the entrance. The atmosphere is charged with anticipation, and suddenly, all eyes are on the bride strutting down the aisle.

What’s happening? It’s the moment of the wedding entrance, and at the heart of it is the pulse-pounding energy of the wedding entrance song!

With that being said, it’s really (like really, really) tough to pick the best wedding entry songs that will leave a lasting impression. And that’s where we come in (cue epiphany song)!

How to Choose the Right Wedding Entrance Songs

Choosing the right wedding entrance songs is like finding the perfect dance partner—you want the right moves, the right rhythm, and, for heaven’s sake, no toe-stepping. But fret not lovebirds—these tips will help you out!

  • Consider your shared favourites: Pick songs that hold sentimental value for both of you. Whether it’s the tune playing during your first date or a song that you both just can’t stop smiling listening to, incorporating personal favourites adds that special touch.
  • Mix in cultural or regional music: Whether it’s a traditional melody or a local favourite, this adds a personal and unique touch, making your entrance a celebration of your roots.
  • Collaborate with a professional DJ: Working with a skilled DJ ensures seamless and well-timed transitions between songs. A professional can read the room, adjusting the tempo and vibe to match the energy of your entrance.

What to Avoid When Choosing Wedding Entrance Songs

Oh, the potential pitfalls of picking the wrong entrance song—they’re like musical banana peels waiting to make you do the splits! Let’s sidestep these mishaps and keep your grand entrance groovy with a few playful pointers:

  • Overly Long Songs: Please: Avoid songs that go on forever. Your entrance is like a blockbuster, not an epic trilogy. Keep it impactful, not an extended intermission, to ensure your guests stay in the groove. You can even edit out portions of a song and just focus on the first verse and chorus. Tip: try fading in and out of the song for a smooth transition.
  • PG, Not R-Rated: Watch out for lyrical landmines. Skip songs with awkwardly personal content or lyrics that’ll have grandma blushing. Your entrance should be family-friendly, not scandalous.
  • Abrupt Genre Changes: Variety is the spice of life, but sudden shifts in music genres? Not so much. Ensure your playlist is a smooth transition, not a musical rollercoaster. Aim for a cohesive blend that matches the vibe of your wedding, like a DJ superhero saving the day.
  • Overly Fast or Slow Tempos: We’re not auditioning for “So You Think You Can Dance.” Pick a tempo that’s just right—fast enough to get the party started but not so speedy that your entrance turns into a dance-off. Slow jams are lovely, but we’re not here for a snail’s pace either. Tip: practice doing an entrance while your song choice plays to see if it’s the right pace for you.

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.
