    I am trying to cram as much info onto our invitations as I possibly can, so I don’t think there will be any more room for more text.  I don’t really want to have to buy separate reception cards, but I still want people to know where to go.

    I like quotes on ceremony programs.  If you really want to use a quote, could you put it there?

    I think its a wonderful idea to put something on your invitation that embodies something of your relationship and who you are. While invitations are formal requests to join you in a celebration, they should also be a reflection of you as a couple and have some personal aspect to them.

     

    I say go for it.

    A quote might be a nice way to jazz up the envelope — back flap or bottom front left?

    @ Nita: No prob!  I think that would be so cute and unique…and maybe even inspire guests to KEEP the envelope?  (And, of course, the invitation.)

    I like unusual quotes, or quotes that aren’t overused.  Something that makes me go "Aww!"  I used a quote from my favorite love sonnet.  If you’re a romantic, go for it.

    I see a lot of "Cheesy" answers up there, I’m guessing those people just aren’t lovey dovey romantic types?

    My FH and I both love quotes, but how do you pick the perfect one to put on an invitation. So what I thought about doing is printing a few up on nice paper, with a pretty font…you know nice little touches to fit in with your colors and theme.  Then I will put them in picture frames and set them on tables around the reception area.  It’s just an idea…my wedding is 5 months away, I could change my mind again.  LOL

    I think it depends on what the quote is, and where the placement is on the invitation.

    I do graphic design for a living, so we get requests like this all the time. Usually something short, like a line or two is perfect. Anything longer will distract from the actual event.
