I love weddings. I’m one of those quintessential bridesmaids that cry when the bride and groom say their vows and profess their undying love for each other (as cliche as that may sound). However, I also cry about another thing at weddings: the playlist! The songs are either completely corny or not terrible, but not great either. So, here are my top songs for an indie wedding (or even just a regular wedding) that’ll help with the ceremony and calm those first dance jitters.

Now, if you are a daily reader, then you will see that some songs are also recycled from my “indie love songs” playlist.
