DJ Vida Ventura has some great advice on Bridal Guide on how to incorporate some unique music on your wedding day! Try Indie Electronica!

“Indie Electronic music is my favorite genre to sprinkle into a wedding. There are some terrific indie songs that have climbed their way in and out of mp3 players-and even radio stations-all over the world. Great indie songs can become quite popular and make excellent additions to any wedding playlist.

This genre fits each section of a wedding quite nicely. During the cocktail portion, I find that it creates a wonderful contrast between some of the more traditional genres, like classical and jazz, and can actually heighten the sound of all songs played by adding versatility and variability. The dinner portion is a wonderful time to play those indie folk-derived love songs. The electronic element of this genre adds a beautiful soundscape that can complement a gorgeous environment with its sense of style and modernity.
