A marriage is incomplete without the blessings of elders and the Holy power. No matter what religion you follow or even if you don’t follow any, Biblical and Holy wedding card quotes are a beautiful way to show how grateful and thankful you are to the love and joy coming your way. A wedding card is a formal invite and an auspicious quote blesses the invitation, inviting all things good from there on.

- “Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law." - Romans 13:8
- “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins." - 1 Peter 4:8
4. Original quotes
Coming up with an original quote may seem like a daunting task, much like writing your own wedding vows. The problem is not what to say but how to say it and especially when there is so much to express. Relax, take a deep breath and just let your emotions run wild. At first write everything that comes to mind, words that hold meaning, emotions that you are feeling and slowly start stringing these together. And remember, sometimes ‘I love you’ is the most original quote. Original wedding card quotes are by far the most special ones and the ones that you will echo through your marriage for a lifetime. Even an expression of your love without any fancy words would be the most heartfelt words you can ever use.
5. Funny quotes
‘Come for the Drinks; Stay for the Vows’. A funny wedding quote like that is sure to get your wedding party in splits and excited for the D-Day. Funny quotes are great for invites for close friends and family; especially for Save-the-Date or Whatsapp Wedding invites. Light, funny and cute wedding card quotes are easy to find or can even be original. Spread tickles along with happiness by using some of the quotes like:
- “To keep your marriage brimming, with love in the wedding cup, whenever you're wrong, admit it; whenever you’re right, shut up.” - Ogden Nash
