Wedding Sayings: I
I want to be your friend for ever and ever…
When the hills are all flat and the rivers run dry. When the trees blossom in winter and the snow falls in summer. When Heaven and Earth mix, not till then will I part from you.
In joining your lives may God grant you both…
to afford each other a special quality of time together.
in the accomplishments of one another.
that your interests and desires will not always be the same.
based on mutual trust.
to speak of a misunderstanding
and to work on a solution before the setting sun.
to comfort each other in pain and sorrow.
to realize rainbows follow rainy days.
to keep with you part of the child you used to be.
from your sense of humour.
to live each day with the knowledge that
there is no promise of tomorrow.
May God bless you and keep you in the palm of his hand.
Wedding Sayings: M
Marriage is a commitment to take that joy deep, deeper than happiness deep into the discovery of who you most truly are. It is a commitment to a spiritual journey, to a life of becoming – in which joy can comprehend despair, running through rivers of pain into joy again.
Thus marriage is even deeper than commitment. It is a covenant – a covenant that says: I love you, I trust you, I will be here for you when you are hurting, and when I am hurting I will not leave. It is a covenant intended not to provide a haven from pain or anger or sorrow. Life offers no such haven. Instead marriage is intended to provide a sanctuary safe enough to risk loving; to risk living and sharing from the centre of oneself. This is worth everything.
May you be poor in misfortunes and rich in blessings.
Slow to make enemies and quick to make friends.
And may you know nothing but happiness from this day forward.
May your hands be forever clasped in friendship
And your hearts forever joined in love.
Wedding Sayings: N
No matter how old you both get… Never stop holding hands, never stop dancing, and never stop saying “I love you.”
Wedding Sayings: S
Sooner or later we begin to understand that love is more than verses on Valentines and romance in the movies. We begin to know that love is here and now, real and true, the most important thing in our lives.
For love is a promise that is always kept, a fortune that can never be spent, a seed that can flourish in even the most unlikely of places.
And this radiance that never fades, this mysterious and magical joy, is the greatest treasure of all, one known only by those who love.

The key to love is understanding…
The ability to comprehend not only the spoken word
But those unspoken gestures
The little things that say so much by themselves
The key to love is forgiveness…
To accept each other’s faults and pardon mistakes
Without forgetting, but with remembering
What you learn from them
The key to love is sharing…
Facing your good fortune as well as the bad, together
Both conquering problems, forever searching for ways
To intensify your happiness
The key to love is giving…
Without thought of return
But with the hope of just a simple smile
And by giving in but never giving up
The key to love is respect…
Realising that you are two separate people, with different ideas
That you don’t belong to each other
You belong with each other, and share a mutual bond
The key to love is inside us all…
It takes time and patience to unlock all the ingrediants
It is the continual learning process that demands a lot of work
But the rewards are more than worth the effort
And that is the key to love
This day I married my best friend.
The one I laugh with, as we share life’s wonderous zest as we find new enjoyments and experience all that’s best. The one I live for because the world seems brighter as our happy times are better and our burdens feel much lighter. The one I love with every fibre of my Soul, we used to feel vaguely incomplete, now together we are whole.
Two doves meeting in the sky
Two loves, hand in hand, eye to eye
Two parts of a loving whole
Two hearts and a single soul
Two stars shining big and bright
Two fires bringing warmth and light
Two songs played in perfect tune
Two flowers growing into bloom
Two doves gliding in the air
Two loves free without a care
Two parts of a single whole
Two hearts and a single Soul

When I say I love you…
It’s not because I want you or because I can’t have you. It has nothing to do with me.
I love what you are, what you do, how you try. I’ve seen your kindness and strength.
I’ve seen the best and worst of you and I understand with perfect clarity exactly what and who you are.
When thy foot is at the alter,
When the ring hath press’d thy hand,
When thou lov’st, and those who love thee
smiling round thee stand,
O, may the verse that friendship weaves,
Like a spirit of the air,
Be o’er thee at that moment
for a blessing and a prayer.
Wedding Sayings: Y
You don’t marry someone you can live with…
You marry the person who you cannot live without.
‘Your marriage,’ he said, ‘should have within it, a secret and protected place open to you alone. Imagine it to be a walled garden, entered by a door to which you only hold the key. Within this garden you will cease to be a mother, father, employee, homemaker or any other of the roles which you fulfill in daily life. Here you are yourselves, two people who love each other. Here you can concentrate on one another’s needs.’
‘So take my hand and let us go back to our garden. The time we spend together is not wasted but invested. Invested in our future and the nurture of our love.
