You could include part of the Anchors Aweigh song:

Anchors Aweigh, my boys

Anchors Aweigh

Farewell to college joys

We sail at break of day, day, day, day

Through our last night ashore

Drink to the foamUntil we meet once more

Here’s wishing you a happy voyage home!

 

Maybe just:Anchors Aweigh

Through our last night ashore

Drink to the foam

Until we meet once more

Here’s wishing you a happy voyage home!

 

I don’t know, what do you think?

thought this was a romantic poem that has the anchor thing tied in, but you may find it a tad bit heavy… thought i’d share anyway because its pretty πŸ™‚

Fast Anchor’d, Eternal, O Love. by Walt Whitman
FAST-ANCHOR’D, eternal, O love! O woman I love!
O bride! O wife! more resistless than I can tell, the thought of you!
—Then separate, as disembodied, or another born,
Ethereal, the last athletic reality, my consolation;
I ascend—I float in the regions of your love, O man,
O sharer of my roving life.
i’m on a romantic quote looking up spree for my favor tags right now too! lol

1. A faithful companion is a sure anchor.

2. The lass that loves a sailor.

3. The sailor loves the maiden.

4. Twas down in Stockton Church

    The happy knot was tied

    From land to land

    There’s no man can

    Match the sailor and his bride.

I have suggestions, and I want to piggyback on your thread – if you don’t mind!  We are getting married in Newport, so I am having a seashell bar (similarly set up to a candy buffet) and need something cute about shells, the sea, etc.

For your anchors, what about something like:

Sail into the sunset

Love’s anchor

Be my anchor and my guide

Happy sails!

Love’s great voyage

@guffee

perhaps “my anchor through the storm”?

This isn’t helpful, but it also made me think of those cheesy vows in Wedding Crashers where she promises her fiance/”captain” that she will be his “anchor and his sail” πŸ™‚

 

@shanbrice I think this is not as light and whimsical as you would like, but it’s certainly romantic

“My bounty is as boundless as the sea, 
My love as deep; 
The more I give to thee 
The more I have, 
For both are infinite.” -Romeo and Juliet

For shanbrice:

1. Come walk with me
    Along the sea
    Where dusk sits on the land
    And search with me
    For shells are free,
    And treasures hide in sand.

2.  Three of life’s treasures, seashells, sand and sun

       Debra Oakland

3.  Today is a smooth white seashell, hold it close and listen to the beauty of the hours.

4.  One cannot collect all the beautiful shells on the beach. One can collect only a few         and they are more beautiful if they  are a few.

   Anne Morrow Lindbergh

5.  May your joys be as deep as the ocean, your sorrows as light as its foam.

6.  You’re not a wave, you’re a part of the ocean.

    Mitch Albom

7.  Individually we are a drop. Together we are an ocean.

      Ryunosuke Satoro

8.  May your joys be as deep as the ocean, and your troubles as light as its foam
