Love Songs for Romantic Card Messages

January 16, 2019
Romantic Love Songs

Roses are red, violets are blue…and let’s face it, most of us aren’t natural born poets.

Sometimes it’s best to let the music do the talking, and that goes for when you’re trying to send the perfect anniversary, engagement, wedding or Valentine’s Day message to your sweetheart.

Sending romantic flowers is a good start, but filling out the card can be tough. Drawing inspiration from your favorite song or a classic love song can help. Here are some romantic songs to get you in the mood sorted by genre.  Another cool idea is to make a “Best Love Songs” mixtape for your sweetie and just push play!
