If your wedding day is fast approaching, you may still be looking for inspiration to make it extra romantic. Many weddings are all about the spectacle and the extravagance. But the best weddings are the ones that are incredibly romantic. After all, they’re all about the love between the two of you. So how can you express that at your wedding?

Poetry       Writing your own vows is one way to publicly express your feelings for your partner. You might choose to turn your words into a poem. Or maybe they would suit a song for you to serenade your beloved with? Choosing someone else’s poem will never have the same impact as voicing your own words. For the ultimate romantic gesture, why not publish the poem in their honour?

Ring      Your wedding rings are the one piece of jewellery that you are both likely to wear for the rest of your lives. Bands of gold are a common way to visibly communicate your union and love for each other. You could also have the inside of the band inscribed with a message of love for your significant other. There is also a way to add a piece of each of you to the ring. The Heart in Diamonds website details how your own DNA can be used to create the diamonds for your ring. It’s a unique way to bring you both together.

Dance     The First Dance is one of the most romantic moments of the whole wedding. It’s the moment when the groom sweeps the bride off her feet. The two of you will show the whole wedding party how perfect you are for each other by dancing together. Many couples have a few dance lessons to ensure the First Dance is a big success. But the most romantic moment of all is the end of the dance when you embrace and kiss. Awwww.

Music     The music you choose has the power to really tug at the heartstrings of everyone in the room. You may already have a song that you both identify your relationship with. A power ballad can be a good choice too. But there’s no need to bring your iPod. Why not hire a live string quartet and let those violins soar?

Toasts     These days, the bride and the groom will both toast each other. It gives you a chance to address each other as well as everyone else in the room. You might tell a story about the first time you met. Or you may have a dozen others that sum up every little reason why you are so deeply in love with each other. The most romantic toasts are those that describe a beautiful future together.

Love is always in the air at weddings, but sometimes couples can forget that. Sure, you’re there to party, spend time with your mates and have a few bevvies. But you’re also there to celebrate the undying love you share with your other half. So bring on the romance, and let your love be shared.
