25 Not-so-Weddingy Wedding Songs

Still searching for songs for your wedding? If you’re tired of hearing the same old ballads and want to incorporate some wedding songs into your day that aren’t your typical tunes, then this one goes out to you, friend. Angela from Sunshine Coast musical duo, Love Note Music, has curated a playlist to help you hit just the right note for your wedding day. 

Music is such a big part of memory making, so every time you hear that song you walked down the aisle to, or danced your first dance to, you want to be filled again with the love and happiness you felt in that moment. And you want it to feel like that moment that was all about you

Angela said, “If you’re the kind of couple who are into something a little more ‘alt,’ this list might appeal to you. It includes some indie-folk, lots of acoustic chill for the free-spirited-ocean-lovers, and some not-so- ‘weddingy’ pop/alt-rock tunes.”

So next time you jump in the car, or sit down for a wine and a cuddle, have a little listen to this playlist on Spotify and see if there’s something there for you.
