This is possibly the biggest song choice of the day for brides. It is important to think about the timing required for flower girls, bridesmaids and the bride to be to make it down the aisle, this is often something you can do at an early site visit at your venue, or will do with your celebrant at the Wedding rehearsal. If you find a song that you absolutely fall in love with, but perhaps the instrumental intro needs to be longer, or you want to remove a certain verse from the song etc, remember that we offer custom edits of your walking down the aisle song with our Gold and Platinum Wedding DJ Packages.

That’s it, all the formalities are done and its time to blow off some steam and have a party! Every dance floor is ver different so we won’t go listing hundreds of songs for you to look through, but a part of our booking process is working together on an online music form where you tell us what genres you like, and specific requests you want to hear. We recommend that you put a ‘One song that will make me dance’ field on your guests RSVPs, this way our DJs get a great idea of the mix of music your guests will respond to, as well as the music that you do and don’t want to hear at your Wedding. We hope these suggestions have helped you along the way and we look forward to taking care of the music for your special day!
