so my fiance and i have never been huge music people BUT we obviously need a first song! weve agreed we fall into the hipster catagory haha
We were stuck on Better Together by Jack Johnson which in not opposed to but i just love Sea of Love by Cat Power. does anyone have any other cool indie suggestions? maybe some kind of middle ground or compromise? haha thanks!

I love “First Day of My Life” by Bright Eyes, and we are def considering it!
“Stay Young, Go Dancing” or “Unobstructed Views” by Death Cab are both lovely too. The latter might be too slow though.
Let me find some others 🙂

We’re doing a song by a local singer/songwriter that has huge meaning to us. I love the Bright Eyes song and plan to use that at some point. Pick a song that has the most significance to you as a couple.

I have loads of songs but realize I need to probably keep it short and upbeat because I’m very very weepy. The one I like right now is “This will be our year” by The Zombies, Fiance and I both love She & Him which I’m convinced was inspired by this music. Plus the lyrics are appropiate, by the time we get married we’ll have been dating for 10 years.
Technically it’s not ‘indie’ I don’t think but it’s also not typical so I feel it applies.

I’ve seen Sea of Love (Cat Power version) as a first dance and it was really nice (perfect for slow dancing and realiy fit the couple). I think it’s a realy good choice.
We danced to Breathless by Nick Cave (aka the song that makes me cry and think of us every time I listen to it). We both LOVE Nick Cave (almost as much as David Bowie on a completely unrelated note), so it was meaningful to us both.

@chouette: I love The Zombies! It definitely counts as indie because really it’s pre-indie inspiration.

We’re not using it, but i always like Ray Lamontage – You Are The Best Thing. I think it’s kinda different. 🙂
