Season of Love

According to the marquee on our local bridal shop, wedding season is officially here.

Spring is primetime for nuptials, and I’m sure my local scrapbook shop will be echoing the bridal boutique’s sentiments just as soon as it sells out of its Easter merchandise.

Weddings are among the most popular events to scrapbook and it doesn’t take a genius to figure out why. Getting married is a life-altering moment that most people enjoy reliving. Having a memory book to display all of the special parts of the extra-special day is a gift that keeps giving.

In addition to the photos and memorabilia of the ceremony and reception, many brides infuse their wedding scrapbooks with words that express their innermost feelings about becoming man and wife. Whether it’s a sweet poem or a loving toast made by the best man or maid of honor, there’s no reason you should exclude touching words shared by your wedding guests.

If you don’t have speeches or toasts to add to journaling blocks, then select a few famous love-themed quotes to spice up your wedding scrapbook layouts. Some popular choices include:

“I dreamed of a wedding of elaborate elegance, a church filled with family and friends. I asked him what kind of a wedding he wished for, he said one that would make me his wife.”–Anonymous

“In marriage do thou be wise: prefer the person before money, virtue before beauty, the mind before the body; then thou hast a wife, a friend, a companion, a second self.”–William Penn

“Marriage is not a noun; it’s a verb. It isn’t something you get. It’s something you do. It’s the way you love your partner every day.”–Barbara De Angelis

“Marriage is the most natural state of man, and… the state in which you will find solid happiness.”–Benjamin Franklin

“Marriage is our last, best chance to grow up.”–Joseph Barth
