What are some good indie/alternative wedding slideshow songs?

by DIY wedding planner on December 9, 2010

I am trying to make a surprise wedding slideshow for my friends. I need songs that are kind of indie/alternative/rock songs to add to the slideshow. The bride likes music like Death Cab, Iron and Wine, The Shins, etc.

Any suggestions you may have would be great. I’m looking for one for them growing up together, and one for their before marriage pics.

I love Death Cab! What about “I Will Follow You Into The Dark”? Or “I Will Possess Your Heart”?

Also, The Postal Service has a song called “Such Great Heights” that’s really great. I believe Iron and Wine did a cover of it and so did Ben Folds.

Yuck to Pon’s sugestions!!! I thought you wanted indie / alternative??? Not freaking Lionel Ritchie!!!
I would suggest the acoustic version of Ben Harper’s “By my side” or Sarah Harmer “Wedding Song”. Cool songs.
