Let’s face it, “At Last” has had its moment in the spotlight. While it still remains a fine choice for a first dance song, there are so many indie love songs out there to choose from. Remember, you’ll want to find something that’s smooth and slow, so maybe save the Avicii and Skrillex tracks for when you’re boogieing down later on at the wedding reception and go with an indie or alternative jam instead.

Here are my picks for the best indie/alternative love songs for your first dance.
