Introduction

If you’re here, you probably said “Yes, I will marry you!” to the woman of your life, or you popped the big question yourself. 

Either way, congrats on the upcoming wedding! 

That said, have you already picked out some lesbian wedding songs for your big day? We get it, with songs usually written from a cis-het perspective, it’s tricky to find picks that won’t ruin the moment with the words “him and her” (not today!) 

But that’s why we’re here! To help make it easier, we rounded up 50 of our favorite lesbian wedding songs you can add to your playlist! We even categorized them as romantic ballads, classics, country, rock, and instrumental, and prioritized adding lesbian wedding songs by LGBTQ+ artists.

Alright, let’s get started!

Tips For Picking The Best Lesbian Wedding Songs

Need some extra tips for your big day? We got you covered with these: 

Reflect Your Relationship: To start off, make sure you pick songs that you can resonate with! Between all your shared experiences and memories together as a couple, we’re sure there’s a few songs that have accompanied you along the way. 

Consider LGBTQ+ Artists: Another point to consider is to include songs by LGBTQ+ and queer artists on your playlist of lesbian wedding tunes. After all, these songs might just add that personal touch and perspective that you’re looking for the whole time. 

Diverse Genres: Like with our list above, opt for different genres instead of putting yourself in a box. This way, your wedding playlist becomes dynamic, and will certainly stop the event (especially the wedding reception) from being stale or boring. Nobody wants that, especially at a lesbian wedding!

Collaborate with Your Partner: Hey, this is a two-woman team from now on, so why not ask for help from your partner? You can discuss your musical preferences, tastes, favorite artists, and whatnot while doing this, while also learning more about each other. Sounds like a win-win for us!

Balance Sentimentality and Fun: It may sound like the most fun thing ever, but playing upbeat anthem after upbeat anthem should be saved for, at least, the wedding reception. Instead, opt for a good balance of fun and sentimentality throughout the event just to even out the mood. After all, you don’t want grandma getting too tired before the festivities even begin! 

Consult With Your Wedding DJ: Much like you consulted your partner, make sure you consult with your wedding DJ for the wedding playlist! Communicate your preferences, give them your list of songs, and talk about transitions and the like to ensure a smooth flow all throughout. Discuss backup plans as well, especially if there are sudden interruptions at the  venue (fingers crossed there won’t be!)

Have Fun: We say this a lot at the end of our articles, but ultimately, have fun! Your upcoming wedding is proof that you’ve made it as a couple, so the process of getting to that long-awaited “I do” should be memorable, no matter what songs are playing. So relax and don’t think too hard about your song picks!

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.
