Every couple has "their" song or "their" poem – quotes that when you hear them, instantly compell you to find your loved one and hold them tight. Perhaps it's the lyrics from the very first song you danced to, or a passage from a treasured book, or a famous quote that sums up exactly how you feel about each other. To share these meaningful lyrics and quotes with your guests, incorporate them into your wedding décor!

Any surface can be a great place to share your favorite citation. Consider including special words on your invitations, or perhaps painted onto a sign displayed at the entrance to your ceremony. Mirrors, napkins, and even cakes are also surprisingly perfect for featuring beloved quotes. Below, see six methods for sharing the written word at your celebration.
