Although wedding invitation wording used to be fairly formulaic and standardized, many couples have begun to include meaningful quotes and verses that highlight their personal values or identity. When considering what quote or verse to include on your wedding invitation, try to avoid sayings that are overused or cliche. Instead, choose something that you find meaningful and relevant to the relationship you have with your future spouse.
If you have a romantic streak and want to set the tone for a dreamy wedding, consider including this quote: "Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairytale."
If you have strong, poetic ideals about what it means to love your partner, this is a good saying to include on your invitation: "Love fills the moment, And the moment begins eternity, Love fills a lifetime, And a lifetime begins this hour."
