Picture this: The big day is coming up and you’re starting to think about favors, floral arrangements, and dress codes. However, there’s one fundamental detail that you may be putting off until the last minute—rounding up sentimental wedding quotes to include in your invitations, programming, and, hey, maybe even your vows.

Quotes are a great way to express your love, whether you’re making a toast at the reception or professing adoration to your S.O. You may even slyly send these to your maid of honor if they’re planning on giving a cute little speech to celebrate the happy couple (ahem, you).

Now, no stranger’s words can ever fully capture the love you have for your partner. However, having some quotes available at the tips of your fingers can help ease the anxiety about finding the right words on your wedding day—or anniversary celebration a decade later—when your brain simply cannot generate them. While a simple “I love you” or “I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you” will suffice, you can also get a little more creative.

From pop culture love quotes to funny one-liners that are sure to get some giggles from your guests, these are by far the best wedding quotes.
