How to Choose the Right Bride and Groom Entrance Song

Alright, lovebirds, let’s talk tunes!

Picking your bride and groom entry song is like choosing your Netflix binge for the night – it’s gotta be perfect. Here’s a no-fuss guide to help you find the jams that’ll have you groovin’:

  • Reflect on your vibes: Your wedding entrance is like the opening scene of your blockbuster movie. Choose a song that screams “This is us!” Whether you’re into old-school rock or the latest pop hits, let your music represent the things you like as a couple.
  • Take a sentimental journey: Remember that time when you spilled spaghetti on your first date? Yeah, good times. Pick songs that have a backstory – maybe the tune that played when you locked eyes for the first time. It’s like a musical scrapbook of your love story, minus the embarrassing spaghetti stains.
  • Set the mood: Think about the vibe you’re going for. Do you want to kick off the party with confetti cannons and disco lights, or are you leaning towards a more intimate, candle-lit moment? Your entrance song is the DJ to your wedding party, so choose wisely.
  • Check the lyrics: While you’re dancing your way into marital bliss, make sure the lyrics are on the same page. No one wants a slow jam about heartbreak during a happily-ever-after moment. It’s like bringing a rain cloud to your own parade – not cool.
  • Test the dance floor: If you’re planning some epic dance moves, make sure the tempo’s on point. You probably don’t want to attempt the moonwalk to a song that is way to fast-paced –we want to avoid any potential faceplants on your wedding day. Tip: you don’t have to be the world’s best dancer, but a few rehearsals will definitely help.

What to Avoid When Choosing a Bride and Groom Entrance Song

Picking the wrong entrance song is like wearing Crocs with your wedding dress—just a big no-no. Dodge these entrance mishaps:

  • Lyrically Awkward Jams: Listen up! Check those lyrics. Avoid songs that could turn your grand entrance into a drama series. No one wants a tearjerker when you’re supposed to be tearing up the dance floor. Make sure to also avoid songs that have more profanities than an angry mother could muster – we don’t want to make things awkward!
  • Never-Ending Intros: Your entrance should be like a good joke – short, sweet, and leaving everyone wanting more. Skip songs with seemingly decade-long intros. Tip: you can cut the song to only focus on the verse and chorus to keep it simple.
  • Genre Whiplash: We’re all for variety, but jumping from classical to hardcore rap might leave your guests questioning if they walked into the right party. For example, if you’ve already decided on a Pop song, you probably don’t want to switch into Beethoven’s symphony number 9.
  • Neglecting Your Partner’s Picks: It takes two to tango, or in this case, make a killer entrance. Make sure both of you have similar tastes for chosen songs. It’s both of your day, so both your opinions matter. Tip: sit down and list songs that both of you love then proceed to cross out the ones you don’t like (please pick Beethoven symphony number 9). That way, you’ll always end up with good options.

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.
