How to Choose the Right Stevie Wonder Wedding Song

Many couples incorporate Stevie Wonder songs for weddings. However, with such a vast collection, deciding which Stevie Wonder songs for wedding to pick can be overwhelming. Here are tips to help you choose:

1. Consider the Mood and Atmosphere

Choose songs that reflect the mood and atmosphere you want to create at each wedding stage. For a romantic ceremony, consider ballads like “As” or “I Do.” For a lively reception, choose upbeat tunes like “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours” or “Superstition.”

2. Reflect Your Relationship

Select Stevie Wonder songs that hold special meaning for you and your partner. Did you fall in love with a specific piece? Did you have a memorable first dance to one of his tunes? Choose songs that remind you of happy memories throughout your relationship.

3. Cater to Different Generations

Choosing Stevie Wonder wedding songs that appeal to all your guests, from young to old, is essential. While you can certainly include some of his less well-known gems, it’s also wise to incorporate some of his most recognizable hits, like “I Just Called to Say I Love You” or “Isn’t She Lovely.” 

4. Think Beyond The Dance Floor

Don’t just focus on dance music! Consider incorporating Stevie Wonder’s softer ballads for the ceremony, cocktail hour, or even your first dance. For a romantic first dance, “You Are the Sunshine of My Life” is a classic choice. “Ribbon in the Sky” could be a beautiful option for a more intimate moment during the ceremony.

What to avoid when choosing Stevie Wonder Wedding Songs

While Stevie Wonder’s music offers a wealth of options for your wedding playlist, there are a few things to avoid to ensure your musical choices. Here are some pitfalls to steer clear of:

1. Songs with Inappropriate Lyrics

Some of Stevie Wonder’s songs contain lyrics that might not be suitable for a wedding setting (oops!) Pay close attention to the content of each piece and avoid anything that could be perceived as offensive or inappropriate for your audience.

Tip: Research the lyrics of each song you’re considering and ensure they align with the tone and message you want to express on your wedding day.

2. Neglecting the Overall Theme of Your Wedding

Your wedding music should complement the overall theme and style of your celebration. 

Tip: If you’re planning a vintage-inspired wedding, stick to Stevie Wonder’s earlier hits. For a modern and sophisticated theme, consider incorporating contemporary remixes or instrumentals.

3. Overusing Upbeat Songs

While Stevie Wonder is known for his infectious dance tunes, playing them back-to-back can create an overly energetic atmosphere, especially for older guests or during more intimate moments like the ceremony. 

Tip: Aim for a good balance of upbeat and slower songs to create a diverse playlist for your Stevie Wonder wedding songs.

4. Cater to Different Generations

Consider the tempo and flow of your Stevie Wonder wedding songs. Abrupt transitions between slow and fast songs can be jarring for your guests.

Tip: Group similar tempo songs together and create transitions using instrumentals or remixes to maintain a smooth and enjoyable listening experience. You can also use fade-in and fade-out techniques per song so you can smoothly switch songs.

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.
