Every couple has a different perspective on marriage, and on love. And only when you start sifting through potential readings, quotes and themes for your big day, do you realise that there are so many words out there that don't fit your idea of what love is. Whilst some couples are enchanted by the comparison of love to the stars in the sky and the waves of the ocean, others relate to more practical wording and toned down language. Regardless of how you like to describe or represent your love, there is a quote out there to summarise all kinds of relationships. Looking for a wedding invite quote? Whether you crave wisdom, humour, or sheer romance, in this article we help you select a quote for your wedding invitations or your signage.

Love in words

Just like you select a colour scheme for your bridesmaids or a meal to suit your theme, many couples find it important to portray their love with carefully chosen words. 

Whether it's a wedding invite quote to adorn your invitations, or as a sign in your wedding reception, finding the right words can help you express to your guests what your marriage means to you as a couple. 

Because at the end of the day, we all see our relationships differently. Some couples like to describe their marriage as lives intertwined and totally shared. Literary fans might revel in poetic and romantic language to describe the feelings they have for each other. Meanwhile, some couples explain their relationship in terms of support and comfort. 

Regardless of where you stand on the meaning of your relationship with your partner, you might like to sort through some wedding invitation quotes, readings or poems in order to find where you stand.

Why should I choose a wedding invite quote?

People often seek quotes for their wedding invitations or wedding stationery to add a personal touch and infuse their special day with sentiment and meaning.

And because words and quotes serve as such a great reflection of the couple's personalities, values, and the love they share, they can truly tie together your event. What's more, they help you and your partner confirm to each other what your marriage is all about.

Your wedding invitation quote can offer you and your guests a sense of elegance, humour, sophistication, romance, or a combination of the above, setting the tone for the wedding celebration.

So if you're looking for the words to tie together your wedding invitations, or to sprinkle across your wedding on various stationery items, you've come to the right place.
