50 Classic Love Quotes for Wedding Invitations

Literary Love Quotes for Wedding Invitations and Vows

Wedding invitations often seem much the same, so when someone does something different, it really catches the attention of guests. A couple of years ago, I received an invitation that was nestled within a cover folder. The cover was an artist’s woodblock limited print and had a beautiful design that included a sweet love quote. I loved this idea of giving a beautiful keepsake to everyone you invite to your wedding, not just those who are able to attend. If you want to try something similar, or even just print a sweet love quotation at the top or on the back of your wedding invitation, there are many from which to choose. Quotes can also be incorporated into your vows or day-of stationery. I made a list of my favorite classic quotes from literature and poetry, if you need some inspiration.
