Inspiring Quotes For Weddings

Updated on May 14, 2018

“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

I love thee to the depth and breadth and height

My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight

For the ends of being and ideal grace.

I love thee to the level of every day's

Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.

I love thee freely, as men strive for right.

I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.

I love thee with the passion put to use

In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.

I love thee with a love I seemed to lose

With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,

Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,

I shall but love thee better after death.”

~Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861)~

Throughout time there have been many quotes about love and relationships written. Some are romantic, some are funny and, well, some leave a lot to be desired. Regardless of whether they are quotes from Shakespeare or Dr. Seuss, or whether they make us laugh or cry, they somehow manage to evoke certain moods or spark those profound feelings that we have for others.

A wedding day is one of the most memorable of days in one’s life. Oftentimes, part of that special day are the words that couples say to each other or write down. It can be the special words written on invitations. It’s the sweet notes that are attached to gifts the happy couple exchange on the morning of their wedding day. Perhaps it’s the precious exchange expressed during the vows. Maybe it is those emotional words that are spoken by loved ones during a speech. These special and memorable words help to set the mood of the affair. They are also meaningful and remain with us forever.

Unfortunately, we are not all writers or poets and sometimes choosing the right words can be a little daunting for some. We all want the words to reflect the person, the occasion, the atmosphere. There are certainly enough quotes to choose from whether we are searching through books, magazines or online. However, the problem is just that, where do we begin with so much out there in the universe for us to select from?

It is a short word, easy to spell, difficult to define and impossible to live without. Love is work, but most of all, love is realizing that every hour, every minute, every second of it was worth it because you did it together. ~Author Unknown~

      Good Morning Devika! Thank you so much for stopping by. It’s true, marriage isn’t all fun and games. In order to succeed it takes a lot of hard work, communication and of course, compromise. Take care and have a lovely day. -Rose

      A challenge indeed! I have learned and still learning of the challenges a marriage has as I have seen in mine. I like this hub and it makes me think of how a marriage can destroy two people or bring them together. Love is not always a priority in marriage as I see it.
