Wedding Quotes

Quotes for Marriage and Love

When finding the right words seems tricky, feel free to borrow inspiration from some of history's greatest thinkers. Wedding quotes can be funny, sentimental, or serious, depending upon the overall mood you wish to convey.

You should choose quotes that speak to you on a personal level, but keep in mind that a church wedding with your ninety year old grandmother in attendance requires a more formal approach than a casual backyard event limited to a few very close friends. Be respectful of both your audience and your surroundings.

Length also matters when deciding what quotes are best. Short quotes are preferable for most purposes, since longer quotes can be difficult to read at a glance. However, longer quotes can easily be incorporated into a reading during your ceremony or a toast at the reception if you so desire.

Way to Use Wedding Quotes

When incorporating quotes into your wedding, you have several different options to choose from. Here are some ideas to help you get started:

  • Invitations: Since the invitation sets the tone for the event, embellish your wedding invites with a quote that reflects the theme or overall mood you hope to convey.
  • Programs: Adding a quote or two to your wedding program is a popular choice. Put your own personal spin on this idea by incorporating the quote into a word search or puzzle that will help keep your littlest guests busy during the ceremony.
  • Photo Props: If there's a quote you love, frame it and have the flower girl or ring bearer hold it during your wedding photos, or place it on the gift table.
  • Ceremony Backdrop: Instead of a traditional altar, stencil a favorite quote on a canvas backdrop to display during the ceremony.
  • Literary Inspired Cake: Show off your bookish side with a quote from your favorite author stenciled around the edges of your wedding cake.
  • Chalkboard Sign: Write quotes on heart shaped chalkboard signs for a casual, rustic touch at your wedding reception.
  • Table Runner: Print quotes on kraft paper table runners to decorate your reception hall.
  • Mirror Quotes: Write quotes on the mirrors in the reception hall restrooms for a playful touch.
  • Slideshow: If you're planning on having a slideshow of pictures playing during your reception, considering mixing in a few quotes to add interest to the presentation.
  • Wedding Favors: Print a quote on the tag attached to your wedding favors.
  • Thank You Notes: Adding a meaningful quote about the beauty of a happy marriage is a lovely way to personalize your wedding thank you notes.
  • Wedding Scrapbook: Use quotes to embellish a scrapbook of your wedding photos.

Preparing for Your Special Day

Wedding quotes can be used to add a personalized touch to your big day. Just as many couples have a signature song that they feel captures the essence of their relationship, your favorite wedding quotes can be used to celebrate your love for many years to come.
