We love including personalized and sentimental details in a wedding. They help tell your love story and they’re most often what guests remember most. One of the easiest ways to personalize your wedding is to incorporate one or more of your favorite love quotes into the day. But this doesn’t have to be limited to just the wedding ceremony readings. Romantic quotes can also make for creative, unique wedding decor. Quotes can set a mood, add a touch of humor or sentimentality or serve a function like labeling a space or giving your guests an instruction. If you can’t immediately think of quotes you love, turn to your favorite books, movies and songs for inspiration. To start you off, we’ve gathered 20 of our favorite romantic love quotes for weddings in the mountains – perfect for a Colorado destination wedding! You’ll also find some suggestions for how and where to use them.

“Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be.” Robert Browning
“The sun shines not on us but in us. The rivers flow not past, but through us. Thrilling, tingling, vibrating every fiber and cell of the substance of our bodies, making them glide and sing. The trees wave and the flowers bloom in our bodies as well as our souls, and every bird song, wind song, and tremendous storm song of the rocks in the heart of the mountains is our song, our very own, and sings our love.”
“Hark! my lover—here he comes springing across the mountains, leaping across the hills. My lover is like a gazelle or a young stag. Here he stands behind our wall, gazing through the windows, peering through the lattices. My lover speaks; he says to me, “Arise, my beloved, my dove, my beautiful one, and come! “O my dove in the clefts of the rock, in the secret recesses of the cliff, Let me see you, let me hear your voice, For your voice is sweet, and you are lovely. My lover belongs to me and I to him. He says to me: “Set me as a seal on your heart, as a seal on your arm; For stern as death is love, relentless as the nether-world is devotion; its flames are a blazing fire. Deep waters cannot quench love, nor floods sweep it away.”
Song of Songs
“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where,
I love you directly without problems or pride:
I love you like this because I don’t know any other way to love,
except in this form in which I am not nor are you,
so close that your hand upon my chest is mine,
so close that your eyes close with my dreams.”
How to Use Them
Custom signage can be a fabulous decor feature for your reception. Fabric scrolls or pennants, framed prints, wooden or chalkboard signs with beautiful typography could all be used as a backdrop for a cake table, bar, escort card display, guest book table or other visual detail. For the later part of the reception, have your favorite quote turned into a neon sign and display it above the dance floor. Here are a few more creative ways to display a sentimental quote at your wedding:
- Turn it into a custom ceremony backdrop.
- Have it made into a cake topper.
- Break the quote up into sections and place them along the aisle.
- Have the quote incorporated into your cake design.
- Print quotes on custom napkins for cocktail hour.
- Commission a calligrapher to write it on your table linens.
- Include it in your invitations.
