Decorate with Words

Spring is right around the corner, which means wedding season is about to begin. There are a number of wedding shows scheduled in my neck of the woods this weekend. No doubt there will be at least a few scrapbook vendors hawking their wares in an attempt to show brides-to-be how they can showcase their wedding photos in elaborate memory albums.

My wedding scrapbook is quite fancy, thanks in large part to my aunt and cousin. They worked tirelessly to craft the entire book. While the photos speak for themselves, one of the most touching parts of the album are all of the love-themed quotes my family members added to the pages.

If you are planning to create a wedding scrapbook for yourself or a loved one this season, consider placing meaningful messages on the layouts. Some of my favorites include:

“Marriage is like pi – natural, irrational, and very important”–Lisa Hoffman

“A wedding is a start of togetherness… of walks in the rain, basking in the sunshine, shared meals, caring for one another and sensing the love that a marriage carries.”–Author Unknown

“You don’t marry someone you can live with; you marry the person who you cannot live without.”–Anonymous

“Success in marriage is much more than finding the right person; it is a matter of being the right person.”–Anonymous

“A good marriage is that in which each appoints the other guardian of his solitude.”–Rainer Maria Rilke

“What counts in making a happy marriage is not so much how compatible you are, but how you deal with incompatibility.”–Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy

“A good marriage is one which allows for change and growth in the individuals and in the way they express their love.”–Pearl S. Buck

“When a marriage works, nothing on earth can take its place.”–Helen Gahagan Douglas
