Love songs are not just for your wedding playlist or First Dance, they are great sources of inspiration for wedding speeches, love letters and quotes about love to use on your wedding stationery, so we've broken down 8 of the best to help you on your wedding way.

1. One Direction - Little Things

Just because this song is performed by a bunch of teen heartthrobs doesn't mean it's not the perfect track for a touching first dance.

With lyrics like "Your hand fits in mine, like it's made just for me" and "I'm in love with you, and all these little things," see if there's a heart in the room that doesn't melt!

2. Katy Perry - Unconditionally

This powerful ballad makes the ultimate romantic statement, with sweeping lyrics like "There is no fear now, let go and just be free, I will love you unconditionally".

Perfect for hopeless romantic brides and grooms fond of grand gestures, there won't be a dry eye left in the house when this track comes on.

3. Taylor Swift feat. Ed Sheeran - Everything Has Changed

This starry-eyed duet speaks of the moment two people meet each other, sparks start to fly and everything is changed forever!

"All I know is we said hello, and your eyes look like coming home, all I know is a simple name, everything has changed".

Get transported back to the moment you met and feel those butterflies swirling around once again.

4. Justin Timberlake - Mirrors

This gorgeous song sums up how many people feel when they finally meet 'the one'.

Its lyrics declare "I'm looking right at the other half of me," "girl you're my reflection, all I see is you" and "you are the love of my life" - and with statements like that, who wouldn't be left swooning?

5. Let's Stay Together - Al Green

This super song has it all. The promise of loving eachother in good times or bad, happy or sad; despite it's age it never sounds old; it's easy to dance to without looking awkward and makes an excellent choice for your First Dance.

"I'm ... I'm so in love with you/Whatever you want to do/Is all right with me/Cause you, make me feel so brand new/And I, want to spend my life with you." Green's hit song from 1972 still sounds as fresh as the day it hit the radio! We love the idea of twirling on the dance floor, post-ceremony, to the promising idea of loving one another whether times are good or bad, happy or sad.

6. Till There Was You - The Beatles

The prettiest of songs to listen to and for a First Dance makes the perfect waltz.

"There was love all around/But I never heard it singing/No, I never heard it at all/Till there was you." 

7. Crazy Love - Van Morrison

If you want to feel good, stop what you're doing, pop in your headphones, and play this track right now. "I can hear her heart beat for a thousand miles/And the heaven's open every time she smiles/And when I come to her that's where I belong."

8. Have I Told You Lately - Rod Stewart

If you simply download the lyrics and read them word for word you'd have yourself a pretty good wedding speech, although we don't suggest you do this as this is one of the most well known love songs. It's Rod Stewart's little reminder for us to tell our partners we love them.

"Have I told you lately that I love you/Have I told you there's no one else above you/You fill my heart with gladness/Takeaway my sadess/Ease my troubles, that's what you do."
