silly love quotes

September 5th, 2007 at 07:08 am

While making the wedding invitations, I have about a 3 inch strip at the bottom of the vellum that I didn't have a plan for. I decided I would print out some sayings (some romantic, some silly, some from favorite songs, our names) on the bottom, cut them apart with some scrapbook scissors for the funky edges, and sprinkle them on the tables at the reception to add some interest. People would have something to look at and discuss if there is ever a waiting time, and it might get people moving from table to table to read them so they would interact more.

I've looked online for "romantic love quotes", "silly love quotes", "wedding quotes" and all I get is either Shakespeare or how crappy marriage is. I don't want too many sappy ones, and I don't want any crappy ones Smile

Here's what I have so far:
"From this day forward
You shall not walk alone.
My heart will be your shelter,
And my arms will be your home"
- Marianne Williamsen

Thank you for sharing our special day.

Mr. & Mrs. (his last name)

(his first name) and (my first name) (his last name)

"At last my love has come along
My lonely days are over
And life is like a song"
- Etta James

"But at the beginning of creation, God made the male and female. For this reason, a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore, what God has joined together, let man not separate." Mark 10:6-9

She thinks my tractor's sexy

A wedding is a Day, a Marriage is a Lifetime

When I saw you I fell in love, and you smiled because you knew.
-William Shakespeare

"Let's hold hands on the porch swing,
Under the moon
While the wind through the willows
Plays us a tune
We can lie on a blanket,
Out back in the yard
And wish for our future
On a faraway star
You'll feel the passion
As time after time
I press your sweet lips to mine
We can dance to the radio,
Right up 'til dawn
'Til you drift off to dream in my arms"
-Travis Tritt
Our First Dance

"All of my life I've been waiting for you
All of my love I've been saving for you
Wild and tender to you I surrender my heart
You touch me and time has no meaning at all
The longer I hold you the deeper I fall
I'll cherish the moment I knew
I'll always love you"
Our Second Dance

So, any of you creative types have any other suggestions? I have 63 more invitations to print, so plenty of space for suggestions.

    I like this one:

    This day I will marry my friend, the one I laugh with, live for, dream with, love-- Anonymous.

    And this one:

    Apache Wedding Blessing

    Now you will feel no rain
    For each of you will be shelter to the other.
    Now you will feel no cold
    For each of you will be warmth to the other.
    Now you will feel no loneliness
    For each of you will be companion to the other.
    Now you are two persons
    But there is one life before you. And one home.
    Go now to your dwelling place to enter into the days of your togetherness
    And may your days be good and long upon the earth.

    I found some more:

    May God be with you and bless you.
    May you see your children's children.
    May you be poor in misfortune, rich in blessings.
    May you know nothing but happiness
    From this day forward.
    Scottish Wedding Blessing

    May those who love us, love us.
    And those who don't love us,
    May God turn their hearts;
    And if He doesn't turn their hearts,
    May He turn their ankles,
    So we will know them by their limping.
    Scottish Blessing (or is it?)

    I think that last one is actually an Irish Blessing. I've seen it around before.

    We honor fire and ask that our union be warm and glowing with love in our hearts;
    We honor wind and ask we sail though life safe and calm as in our father's arms;

    With all the forces of the universe you created, we pray for harmony and true happiness as we forever grow young together.

    I know it is thou moving within my heart.

    Oath of Friendship -- Anon., China, 1st Century B.C.
    I want to be your friend
    For ever and ever without break or decay.

    And the rivers are all dry,
    When it lightens and thunders in winter,
    When it rains and snows in summer,
    When Heaven and Earth mingle
    Not 'til then will I part from you.

    to the sky's end; but she is fairer, better worth loving
    She, my heart's friend."

    Commitment reading of the Pueblo Indian, author unknown
    Before we met, you and I were halves unjoined except in the wide
    rivers of our minds. We were each other's distant shore, the
    opposite wings of a bird, the other half of a seashell. We did not
    know the other then, did not know our determination to keep alive
    the cry of one riverbank to the other. We were apart, yet connected
    in our ignorance of each other, like two apples sharing a common
    tree. Remember?

    I knew you existed long before you understood my desire to join my
    freedom to yours. Our paths collided long enough for our indecision
    to be swallowed up by the greater need of love. When you came to me,
    the sun surged towards the earth and moon escaped from darkness to
    bless the union of two spirits, so alike that the creator had designed them
    for life's endless circle. Beloved partner, keeper of my heart's odd secrets,
    clothed in summer blossoms so the icy hand of winter never touches us.
    I thank your patience. Our joining is like a tree to earth,
    a cloud to sky and even more. We are the reason the world can laugh
    on its battlefields and rise from the ashes of its selfishness to hear me say,
    in this time, this place, this way - I loved you best of all.

    A Wedding Prayer
    By Robert Louis Stevenson
    Lord, behold our family here assembled.
    We thank you for this place in which we dwell,
    for the love that unites us,
    for the peace accorded us this day,
    for the hope with which we expect the morrow,
    for the health, the work, the food,
    and the bright skies that make our lives delightful;
    for our friends in all parts of the earth. Amen.

    A Reading from the Book of Sirach
    Happy is the husband of a good wife; the number of his days will be doubled. A loyal wife rejoices her husband, and he will complete his years in peace. A good wife is a great blessing; she will be granted among the blessings of the man who fears the Lord. Whether rich or poor, his heart is glad, and at all times his face is cheerful. A wife's charm delights her husband, and her skill puts fat on his bones. A silent wife is a gift of the Lord, and there is nothing so precious as a disciplined soul. A modest wife adds charm to charm, and no balance can weigh the value of a chaste soul. Like the sun rising in the heights of the Lord, so is the beauty of a good wife in her well-ordered home.

    I'm starting to think of something making table tents out of these as a more formal decoration. I could put them on the gray card stock I am making the invitations from, and even if I have to get more, it is only about $13, and I could make the programs out of it too. I just need a few more blessings / funny sayings (don't have too many funny sayings on this list...I need more of those), and I could have one on each table, and hopefully people would go around and look at them all...I've heard if you have something different at each table, some people will actually mingle instead of just sitting at their table.

    One more:
    A good marriage must be created. In the art of marriage the little things are big things ... It is never being too old to hold hands. It is remembering to say "I love you," at least once each day. It is never going to sleep angry. It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives. It is standing together facing the world. It is speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways. It is having the capacity to forgive and forget. It is giving to each other an atmosphere in which each can grow. It is finding room for the things of the spirit. It is a common search for the good and the beautiful. It is not only marrying the right partner. It is being the right partner.
    --Wilfred A. Petersen

    When it's all over, all you really have is your wife. You can dote on your kids all you want, but they're going to grow up and leave you someday. Then it will be just the two of you.
