We have a frame shop where we live and they were able to create a frame to showcase various things we wanted to mount together. Do you have a frame shop where you live? They’ll be able to advise you on print and layout etc.

How’s your handwriting? I would get some nice linen paper, and some small, matching frames (unless she likes the eclectic look). Handwrite (or hire/find someone with nice handwriting) each quote you found, and frame them individually. Place them one by one for her to find in the weeks leading up to the wedding, with your favorite on the day of, or give them all to her at once.  She could hang them all up as a gallery wall surrounding your wedding photos, or she could place them around your home to always find a little note from you when she’s going about her day. Similar to these:

Aww, how sweet! There are “window pane” picture frames that you can use to frame all of the quotes (maybe print them out in a nice font?) and maybe a picture of you two– here’s a couple of options:

P.S., I just noticed your username– love it haha.

Why don’t you do a scrapbook/album of quotes and you can include your favorite photos of the two of you together?

In My Humble Opinion…it’s less bulky and easier to give to her on the wedding day. smile

jakefromstatefarm :  there’s stores on etsy that will write music lyrics around the couple’s photo…in your case you can jsut ask them to use the quotes instead of lyrics.

 

Here are some stores I found:

Hi Groom, 

You could always contact a professional caligrapher and have him/her rewrite your favourite passage then frame it.

You say that you’re  a book nerd, but is she? Will she get the same level of enjoyment from this gift as you will? Be sure you’re not giving her something that you’ll like Better than she will.
