Indie Wedding Songs for a Champagne Supernova

Love songs by Indie artists can be played at many different styles of weddings during the ceremony and reception.

Because indie artists are not well-known, they can be unique songs that are not played at every wedding!

Fun Facts

A good indie wedding song is a love song performed by an Indie artist.  Love songs on our list do not include break-up songs. They must be songs that describe a forever love or in-love journey by a couple.

Indie is its own music genre. However, this could include indie pop, indie rock, etc. Because the songs are made independently, they do not receive the financial marketing of the large record label too. As a result, many independent songs are not known by the masses. So, if you are looking for songs not overplayed, indie songs would be a great place to start.
