An Indie Wedding Song Playlist

Hipsters Tie the Knot, Too

an indie wedding playlist!

Despite being Gaga for pop, it makes us want to “Shout” when wedding DJs play the same songs “Time After Time.” Make it more than a mindless “Celebration” with our favorite indie picks.

First Dance First

Home,” Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros
(Feel free to play this multiple times.)

Can You Tell,” Ra Ra Riot
(He’s still got butterflies.)

No One’s Gonna Love You,” Band of Horses
(Classic. To the point.)

Love and Some Verses,” Iron & Wine
(In it for the long haul.)

You’ve Got the Love,” Florence + the Machine
(Well, if you didn’t we’d be worried.)

Daddy’s Little Dancer

Hello Halo,” Blair
(Once a kid, always a kid.)

On My Way Back Home,” Band of Horses
(But only for this song.)

Get Everyone on the Dance Floor

Ready to Start,” Arcade Fire
(That’s “Ready to Start the Party” to you.)

I Feel It All,” Feist
(Feeling mighty fine.)

A-Punk,” Vampire Weekend
(Aren’t they all?)

Tighten Up,” The Black Keys
(And get down.)

Say Aha,” Santigold
(Less talk, more dance.)

Je Veux Te Voir,” Yelle
(It’s French for “good music.”)

Deadbeat Summer,” Neon Indian
(Children of the ’80s gotta love synth pop.)

Whirring,” The Joy Formidable
(It’s going by so fast; take a second to dance.)

Drunk Girls,” LCD Soundsystem
(Never tardy to the party.)

Electric Feel,” Mgmt
(Better than the electric slide.)

Creator,” Santigold
(No, that’s not M.I.A.)
