Sermon quotes on weddings

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.

Terre des Hommes, 1939 

Will Ferrell

Before you marry a person you should first make them use a computer with slow Internet to see who they really are.

Dwight Moody

Faith makes all things possible. Love makes all things easy.

Thomas More

I die the king’s faithful servant, but God’s first.

“Weddings are easy; marriages are difficult.” The couple wants to plan a wedding; I want to plan a marriage.

Mickey Rooney

Always get married in the morning. That way if it doesn’t work out, you haven’t wasted the whole day.

Darlene Schach

Marriages, like a garden, take time to grow. But the harvest is rich unto those who patiently and tenderly care for the ground.

Dr. Seuss

People are weird. When we find someone with weirdness that is compatible with ours, we team up and call it love.

Catherine Strode Parks & Linda Strode

My friend Marci once said a wedding can be the worst possible way to begin a marriage. By the time a bride arrives at the altar, she is mad at her mother, her in-laws, and her husband-to-be. It seems this is frequently the case for couples. The wedding-planning process can take a major toll on all involved in the pre-wedding activities, and many find themselves hurrying through the final days in anticipation of “getting it over with.”

Weddings have evolved over the past few decades to become a major industry, with the average cost of a wedding in 2010 coming in just under $27,000. Unfortunately the vast majority of couples spend the bulk of their resources without much attention to the message of their weddings. Whether we intend them to or not, our weddings convey a message to our guests. They reveal a lot about ourselves—our tastes, our personalities, and what is most important to us.

Love is like a friendship caught on fire.

Peter Jackson

Arwen to Aragorn: “I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the ages of this world alone.”

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (New Line, 2003).

Fawn Weaver

The beauty of marriage is not always seen from the very beginning—but rather as love grows and develops over time.
