I would really like to somehow incorporate a favorite quote of mine into my wedding invitations – but I’m not sure how to do it without being cheesy.
Any suggestions on how I might incorporate it into my invitations? FYI, the quote is:
"I love thee, I love but thee, With a love that shall not die, Till the sun grows cold, And the stars grow old." – William Shakespeare

We are using quotes on *everything*. From the napkins, the matches, the parasol tags, the invites, probably the menu…lol everything.
Here’s a link to what our invites looked like with the quote, we put it RIGHT on top in BIG letters. We did not credit it, however we do have that information, it’s actually part of a defination.

weddings are license to be a little cheesy! I don’t think your quote crosses the line anyway 😉 put it wherever you think it looks good, or in a blank space on the back or wherever you like.

I love your invites! I have seen that quote before and always thought it was kind of anti-marriage. Did I interpret it wrong?

You can put that in a lighter color/kind of faded font on the invitation card! Then you can say something like,
"Please join us in witnessing the beginning of our forever as we exchange marriage vows, Day, Month day year, etc."

If you are open to doing a reception card, it would be a great place to use that quote. Another idea would be to ask your invitation designer to see if s/he can have it printed on your invitation envelopes in the back of of the flap. This way it gives your guest a prelude to the invitation itself. If they can’t do it for you, you can always make it into a stamp and DIY.

How about using it as a border? I think that’s what we’ll do with our programs 🙂

Why not put it on the envelope flap?

Here’s how we did it! I always loved the aristotle quote, "Love consists of one soul inhabiting two bodies." So, we put it on the outside of the pocket fold and then referenced it on the inside of the invite. Our wording said "The honor of your presence is requested at the reuniting of one soul." Here are pics of how they come out:
I love your quote and think the idea of the envelope flap or a border would be so adorable!

We are using a partial phrase or quote. I just saw it on something and thought it fit us. We have been dating 5 years and engaged 3 by the time we get married and every one would ask us when are you going to get married. at the top of our invitation we are putting
we decided on forever…

We actually used a quote on our invitations. It was one sentence and we put it at the top of our invitation. I dont even think anyone noticed it to be honest lol. But we thought it was a nice touch.
Our quote is from a song by Beirut.
"All I want is the best for our lives my dear, and you know my wishes are sincere."
