Updated: 2 days ago




If you are planning to have a reading at your wedding and wanting something different to the usual readings, why not consider looking at romantic love songs, or even your own first dance for inspiration. Below we share with you 10 songs with beautiful words to give you a starting point. Just read and feel the words, forget the music......for now.



1. Yellow - Coldplay



Look at the stars Look how they shine for you And everything you do Yeah they were all yellow

I came along I wrote a song for you And all the things you do And it was called "Yellow"

So then I took my turn Oh what a thing to have done And it was all yellow

Your skin Oh yeah, your skin and bones Turn into something beautiful You know, you know I love you so You know I love you so.......


2. At Last - Etta James



At last my love has come along My lonely days are over and life is like a song, oh yeah At last the skies above are blue My heart was wrapped up clover the night I looked at you I found a dream that I could speak to A dream that I can call my own I found a thrill to press my cheek to A thrill I've never known, oh yeah You smiled, you smiled oh and then the spell was cast And here we are in Heaven For you are mine at last


3. Halo - Beyonce


Remember those walls I built Well, baby, they're tumbling down And they didn't even put up a fight They didn't even make a sound

I found a way to let you win But I never really had a doubt Standing in the light of your halo I got my angel now


4. You Send Me - Sam Cooke


At first I thought it was infatuation But, woo, it's lasted so long Now I find myself wanting To marry you and take you home, whoa

You, you, you, you send me I know you send me I know you send me Honest you do


5. The Light - Sam Bareilles



In the morning it comes, heaven sent a hurricane Not a trace of the sun but I don't even run from rain Beating out of my chest, my heart is holding on to you From the moment I knew From the moment I knew You are the air in my breath filling up my love soaked lungs Such a beautiful mess intertwined and overrun Nothing better than this, oh, and then the storm can come You feel just like the sun Just like the sun


6. Butterflies - Kacey Musgraves


Now you're lifting me up, instead of holding me down Stealing my heart instead of stealing my crown Untangled all the strings round my wings that were tied I didn't know him and I didn't know me Cloud nine was always out of reach Now I remember what it feels like to fly You give me butterflies

Kiss full of color makes me wonder where you've always been I was hiding in doubt till you brought me out of my chrysalis And I came out new All because of you


7. Unforgettable - Nat King Cole



Like a song of love that clings to me How the thought of you does things to me Never before has someone been more Unforgettable in every way And forever more, that's how you'll stay That's why darling it's incredible That someone so unforgettable Thinks that I am unforgettable too


8. Then - Brad Paisley


I remember, trying not to stare, the night that I first met you You had me mesmerized And three weeks later, in the front porch light Taking forty-five minutes to kiss goodnight I hadn't told you yet But I thought I loved you then

And now you're my whole life Now you're my whole world I just can't believe the way I feel about you, girl Like a river meets the sea, Stronger than it's ever been. We've come so far since that day And I thought I loved you then


9. The Luckiest - Ben Folds


I don't get many things right the first time, In fact, I am told that a lot Now I know all the wrong turns the stumbles, And falls brought me here And where was I before the day That I first saw your lovely face, Now I see it every day And I know

That I am, I am, I am, the luckiest

What if I had been born fifty years before you In a house on the street Where you lived Maybe I'd be outside as you passed on your bike. Would I know? And in a wide sea of eyes I see one pair that I recognize

And I know

That I am, I am, I am, the luckiest


10. Because You Loved Me - Celine Dion



For all those times you stood by me For all the truth that you made me see For all the joy you brought to my life For all the wrong that you made right For every dream you made come true For all the love I found in you I'll be forever thankful, baby You're the one who held me up Never let me fall You're the one who saw me through through it all


This is just a very small selection of what is out there, so next time you are listening to music, stop and listen to the words, you just might find the inspiration you have been looking for.
