If you’ve spent ANY time searching for wedding songs, you know it can be super difficult. I know that when we were thinking about first dance songs, we really had a hard time figuring out which wedding songs were really “us.” Those choices get even harder if you’re looking for a wedding soundtrack that is more indie than pop, and gravitate towards songs (like we do) that sound less like Bruno Mars and more like The Strokes. So Cory and I went through our music playlists to come up with this selection of indie wedding songs that we think could be amazing for a first dance. From popular Cure tracks to lesser known B-sides from bands you might have forgotten, we hope there’s a great option here for all of you!

PLUS, Cory and I talk about what actually makes a great wedding song, and what doesn’t (IE: you love the song but the lyrics are less than ideal).
