Happy Monday! It’s been a while since our last “wedding music that doesn’t suck” post – but I think today’s alternative wedding song suggestion will make up for that. In case you haven’t heard of The Lumineers, they are an awesome folk rock band out of Denver. They sound like if you put Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros in a blender with a cup of Guster and a dash of Of Monsters & Men. The result is awesome, and consequently a fantastic alternative, folk rock wedding song that would be PERFECT for a modern first dance song, or moving, modern processional song.


I belong with you, you belong with me

You’re my sweetheart

I belong with you, you belong with me

You’re my sweetheart

Love we need it now, let’s hope for some

What do you think? Do you love this awesome, modern rock wedding song like we do?


As with all our wedding song suggestions – we’d love to hear if you used one you’ve seen here in your wedding OR if you have your own, awesome non-sucky wedding songs to share!


  1. I love this song but with lyrics like:
    “I don’t think your right for him
    Look at might have been if you’d
    Took a bus to Chinatown
    I’d be standing on Canal
    And Bowery
    She’d be standing next to me”
    It’s not quite the message I want to send when starting my married life. It’s a cute song, but bittersweet.

  2. This was my first dance song at our wedding and all of the guests just loved it as it was so different and really got the crowd going.
