Hunting for some inspiration for your vows, a letter to your love or a wedding toast? Look no further than your favourite singers’ and songwriters’ lyrics. While it may be tempting to plagiarize their work word for word, do yourself - and your soon-to-be spouse - a solid and put your own spin on their work. Sure, Ed Sheeran may be an amazing wordsmith, but you know your S.O. so much better.
