Alternative Wedding Music

Sun Jun 20, 2010 7:15 pm

Hey everyone!

I need some help trying to find some wedding music! I'm after something a little different to the typical contempoary music that you come across... to walk down the asile to...

I really love the song "Even When I'm Sleeping" by Leonardo's Bride, but my brother in law to be played this at his wedding and I don't want to offend him by having it too! Plus, I'm sure I can find something just as nice.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you all! :) x

My sister-in-law was obsessed with Westlife when she was younger, so she had one of their songs playing.

If there was a mushy Hanson song (other than More Than Anything) I'd walk down to that!

I love Leonardo's Bride but I decided against that as an aisle song.

We had

Aisle - "Here comes the bride" guitar - bought from the guy who does it on youtube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kh6I7KG7czc Very beautiful :heart: :heart:

Then for after
Signing - You and me - The Wannadies (LOVE this song)
Signing - It had to be you - Harry Connick Jnr
After ceremony - All you need is love - Beatles
After ceremony - Love me like the world is ending - Ben Lee (maybe this might be a good aisle song) :heart:
After ceremony - God only knows - The Beach Boys

Probably needed more after ceremony songs by the way, they just repeated, it didn't matter.

Our first dance was the Luckiest by Ben Folds, that might also be a nice aisle song :heart:

We had Love you madly by Cake for our cake cutting song. I absolutely thought it was awesome. If you like Cake, feel free to steal that one!! :lol:

What kind of music do you like when you say alternative? I am into ska/punk pop and some general 90s classics like regurgitator, green day etc as well as 60s music like the beatles.

I just thought that I would add that I actually didn't want that as an aisle song as for the past twelve years (how long has the song been out??) my friend has been telling people that I would have that as my wedding song as I did say that when I was a teenager....so it seemed a little odd to have it!! :roll:

Did a bit of research....

Somewhere over the rainbow - Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwoʻole
Nick Cave - Into my arms
Island in the sun- weezer
Maybe not an aisle song but nice sounding - Clare Bowditch -This Side

Not sure if alternative but I love it! The Turtles - Happy Together YAY! :D

The Cure have a couple for reception songs!

Jamiroquai - You Give Me Something would be a great reception song and I forgot about it. I love Jamiroquai!!!
