Dinner Music | Indie Love


Today I have more dinner music for you all! But today the music selections are for the non-Top 40 brides and grooms. If your goal is to have a unique wedding, and you don’t want to do anything that’s been done/seen/heard before, including the music, these songs are for you! Most of these are on the slower side, so they could also work great for a first dance, or even for the ceremony. If you are feeling bored by the same old wedding music, check these out – you may find one you love!

Hi! i think this blog is a great idea! This particular section on indie music caught my eye and those songs are awesome. But I just want to point out that Inches and Falling by the Format is a very NOT romantic song with lyrics such as “Take these tattered boxes that used to hold your clothes break them down build them back up with your bones” and “Now I wish those photographs could convince you that what we had would only turn out a negative.” and “All you did was construct a mess you’re dead to me if love is death you’re a memory with nothing to show.” Don’t get me wrong, I love this song and I absolutely love the Format, I just don’t think it’s right for a wedding.
