Some bands you may or may not know.
Ash – Shining Light
Blur – Tender
The Cure – Just like Heaven
The La’s – There she goes
The Proclaimers – I’m gonna be (500 Miles)
I’ve struggled to find some that aren’t about being broken hearted and I don’t know if you’ll have heard of Ash or Blur.
Other groups of interest: Oasis, The Fratellis, Muse, Snow Patrol, Stereophonics
I hope this helps in some way.

We’re doing “By Your Side” by Sade. It was the only Sade song I knew when I met him and the only song he didn’t know. I had loved it and when he heard it he loved it to.
We are having “September” from Earth Wind & Fire be out “introduction” song because when I first heard it, he introduced me into the world of real music, not just top hits, I said how much I liked it and asked if it could be “our song” and he said, “sure, as long as we can play it at our wedding”. This was a few months in when we were still figuring eachother out. At that moment, a psuedo proposal, I knew I was going to marry him and it is one of the clearest memories I have to this day. That song brings me right back to that moment.
My friend had “I’ll follow you into the dark” – Death Cab for her walking down the isle song and I cried and cried and cried…..it was beautiful.
For the rest we’re doing a lot of Frank Sinatra stuff to appease our older guests and who doesn’t like Frank?! You can’t not dance to him!

We are going to dance to 311 “Love Song”, we adore this song, Fiance picked it out. I guess you could call it alternative.

We’re doing Wait, by K’s Choice. I think they’re considered alternative enough. 🙂 It’s our first “our” song, and I really love it. 🙂

For our first dance we’re either doing
“The Weather”-Built to Spill or “Jesus, etc.”-Wilco. “Such Great Heights”-Iron and Wine almost made the cut but was way too slow.
