Tips For Picking The Perfect Bridesmaid Song

  • Reflect Personal Tastes: To start, make sure you pick a song that resonates with your bridesmaids’ musical preferences. Or you can even pick a song that reflects on your friendship and the years you #slayed together as #girlbosses (we totally understand what that means)! Either way, pick a song all of you can relate to. 

  • Align With The Bridal Entrance: While the bridesmaid song is its own thing, make sure that it complements the song you chose for your bridal entrance too. Because in this girl group, we don’t upstage anybody! 

  • Test The Length: Another thing to consider is the length of the aisle and how long the walk will be. After all, you don’t want the song ending during the middle of their walk. And you certainly don’t want to rush anyone too (hey, walking in heels isn’t always easy okay!)

  • Personalize The Experience: Finally, consider adding a personal touch to the bridesmaid walk. Perhaps your bridesmaids want to add a special arrangement or a surprise element? Heck, you can even incorporate different entrance ideas to really make the celebration unique. Whatever they end up deciding to do, just make sure that it doesn’t disrupt the flow of the ceremony, as well as your bridal entrance.

What Not To Do When Picking The Bridesmaid Song

  • Avoid Overly Emotional Songs: The crying (and ruined makeup??) can come later, so skip the overly sentimental and emotional tunes for now. Instead, pick a song for bridesmaids to walk down the aisle that provides a good balance of heartfelt and fun. 

  • Steer Clear of Unfamiliar Tunes And Controversial Songs: Unique songs that add an element of surprise is great, but make sure you don’t go overboard and pick an entirely unfamiliar song. Skip the controversial songs as well, because the last thing you want on your big day is to offend anybody!

  • Avoid Last-Minute Changes: Once you’ve chosen the song for bridesmaids to walk down the aisle, stick with it girl! Adding any last-minute changes will only stress you, cause confusion, and even disrupt the flow of your big day. And honey, you and your bridesmaids don’t need any of that 💅

  • Don’t Overthink It: Finally, just don’t overthink it and have fun! Bond with your girlfriends, reflect back on your friendship together, and pick a song that you know everybody already loves (hopefully, that song is from this list… we worked hard on it!)

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.
