I have to go to a wedding on the weekend of a friend of mine. I have bought them something I want to get engraved with about 5 words about love or marriage - something that is concise, appropriate and romantic. So I have been sitting around all day wracking my brain about what the right thing to get written .... actually I have been thinking for the past few weeks, now the wedding is on Saturday so I must get it engraved and wrapped tomorrow. The problem is not exactly that I can't think of anything romantic to write but that I know that this couple don't love eachother, sad but true. They share children however so see this marriage as something they have to do. So everything I can think of writing is either too long, or rings untrue. What lovely but generic saying can I get engraved. I was thinking 'Love is Forever' because that is simple and I am not saying that they love eachother or something overly soppy.... but it doesn't seem special. Hrmm, quick, what words should I engrave?

You know, I get alot of ideas from cards. Maybe go over to the store and browse through some romantic cards. Because I am fresh out of ideas. The ideas I have are more than 5 words. See I would be smart about it and put something like, see what you have gotten yourselves into now!! Love is built on friendship. Marriage is a celebration of love. I haven't got any ideas

Mabye something like, Remember that first kiss, Or something about that first date, or do they have nicknames for each other. Or a special phrase for each other. Maybe something engraved that will make them think back to when they first got together

Oh thank you for your comments, I WILL go to the newsagency and look through the cards and 'steal' a quote from there, what a good idea! I do like the ones you have come up with - the Marriage is a celebration of love is on the top of my list right now.... I will keep you all posted as to which quote I choose :) Thanks for your comments.

Oh yes, that is lovely, but I am afraid it is twice as long as I can fit! I need something in 5 words! - picky aren't I! Thanks for your comment :)

"To love and to hold, even if you loose all your teeth" Hmmm sounds like a funny joke. True love needs good sense of humour too in which couples will laugh together!
