DIY indie weddings are all the rage now and are often more affordable than traditional weddings. Whether located at a barn, a farmhouse or simply outdoors, the venue and the music at an indie wedding are a match made in heaven, just like the bride and the groom.
We are in the middle of the wedding season and many of us have either attended a wedding recently or are planning (or dreaming of) our own soon. Choosing the right wedding music can be challenging because you want to make sure all guests have a good time, and hear songs that make them want to dance. But you also want to avoid some of the more mainstream, cliche wedding songs.
Whether you are in the middle of planning yours or just dreaming about what it would be like (a girl can dream, right?), we are here to help you create the wedding soundtrack of your dreams. We’ve put together a list with some of the best Indie Wedding Playlists on 8tracks. We hope they inspire you to make your own playlist, perhaps using some of the songs you (re)discovered by listening to the ones recommended below:
1. We do, we do, we do
