Tips to Choose the Right Whitney Houston Wedding Songs

Selecting the perfect Whitney Houston wedding songs for your big day can be a delightful yet crucial decision. Here are tips to help you make the right choice.

1. Reflect on Your Love Story

Before diving into the extensive catalog of Whitney Houston wedding songs, take a moment to reflect on your love story. Consider songs that hold sentimental value, perhaps the one playing during your first date or the track that defines a special moment in your relationship. For instance, if Whitney’s “You Give Good Love” aligns with your early romantic experiences, it could be a meaningful addition to your wedding playlist.

2. Consider the Mood

Whitney Houston’s discography spans a range of emotions, from powerful ballads to upbeat anthems. Tailor your song choices to the overall mood you want to create at different points in your wedding. For a soul-stirring first dance, “I Will Always Love You” might be the perfect choice, while the lively “I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)” can set the tone for a vibrant reception.

3. Personalize Your Vows

If you and your partner are exchanging personal vows, consider incorporating Whitney Houston lyrics into your promises. It adds a unique and special touch to your ceremony. For instance, you could weave lines from “My Love is Your Love” into your vows, expressing a commitment to stand by each other through thick and thin.

4. Test the Danceability

Some Whitney Houston songs are not only iconic but also dance floor classics. Before finalizing your playlist, test the danceability of your chosen songs. Imagine your guests grooving to the beat, and make sure the tempo aligns with the energy you want on the dance floor. “I’m Your Baby Tonight” is a lively track that can inject energy into the reception, making it a great choice for a dance-filled celebration.

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.
