The Best Romantic Songs To Use As A Wedding Reading

During your ceremony it is customary to have readings.

These are often romantic quotes or poems that you both like as a couple, however, that said, there is no reason why your reading couldn’t come from another source.

One great idea that we have seen crop up more and more recently is for couples to use the lyrics to particularly romantic songs as their wedding reading.

Some even may opt for their first dance track just to give it some special meaning.

What songs make for the ideal wedding reading? Here are some of the crackers that we think should be added to the list.

Your Song – Elton John

Elton John is known for creating amazing lyrics and in turn awesome songs.

However, it is always the lyrics that really speak to people.

So, why not embrace this and use one of his greatest love songs as your wedding reading?

Thinking Out Loud – Ed Sheeran

A modern day chart wonder, it seems that there really isn’t anything that Ed Sheeran cannot do.

This includes writing amazing love songs.

Thinking Out Loud is one of his most modern hits, and when you read through it, you can see just why it is also a great song to turn into a reading.

Chasing Cars – Snow Patrol

Who doesn’t love the idea of just spending some time alone with each other?

If you do dream of escaping then why not have this big hit as a wedding reading?

We are sure that you won’t see a dry eye in the house.

Just The Way You Are – Bruno Mars

There is a good chance that you think that your partner is the most perfect person in the world.

So, why not embrace this and choose Just The Way You Are as your reading of choice?

Better Together – Janet Jackson

We all know that the course of true love doesn’t always run smoothly.

Which means that you need to do your best to work through those difficult times.


Why not showcase how you are a beautiful team together by using the lyrics to this tune as your wedding reading of choice.

Iris – Goo Goo Dolls

This particular tune is one of the most popular first dance songs out there.

If you are fans of the song, but not sure whether you want to have it as your first dance, why not use it as your wedding reading?

As you can see, there are a variety of different songs out there that you can use not only as your first dance during the reception, but also during your ceremony as a reading too.

So, why not try them out for yourself and see if they work within your big day?

We are sure that you have found some inspiration in this list.

So, why not take a slightly different approach to your wedding reading and pick a song that is going to not only summarise how much you love one another but will also speak to your guests too.
