The Romance of Words
Most important, however, are your words. Our language exists to render emotions so use the beauty of words in your invitations. Does either of you have a favorite poet? Victorian poets Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning wrote some beautiful verses to each other. It was he who penned:
Grow old along with me, The best is yet to be;
The last of life, for which the first was made...
Elizabeth, who loved Robert so intensely and could not believe when he proposed to her, wrote:
How do I love thee? / Let me count the ways
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height / My soul can reach…
Which ends with:
…I love thee with the breath, / Smiles, tears, of all my life!
And if God choose / I shall but love thee better after death.
