Alternative Wedding Songs

*** For anyone that wants to make their wedding music as rebelliously righteous as the 1990s ->

Alternative Music was one of my earliest loves. The album artwork from THE SMASHING PUMPKINS, THE CURE and FOO FIGHTERS was rebelliously stuck to my bedroom walls with scotch tape, . My favourite albums were stacked high in CD towers that were chronologically organized. And just above my desk was a cork board where push pins held up used tickets from my favourite concerts. To me, alternative music in the mid-90s was as cool as it got. 25 years later, these songs amazingly still pop up on wedding playlists. And every time they do I get so incredibly excited! There is sometime exciting and rebellious about performing these amazing little tunes at weddings. Being that they are not "common wedding songs", hearing these classic tunes pop-up is incredibly fun for any of your friends also who share a passion for these classic Alternative gems. This week we have compiled a list of our favourites from all 3 decades spanning from 1980s NEW WAVE origins to classic 1990s ALTERNATIVE ROCK to its later continuation 2000s INDIE ROCK.
