Are you looking for good newlywed quotes? Sometimes it can be challenging to find just the right words to encourage and strengthen your love for each other.
I know you’re already inundated with new information. While I love sharing wisdom (I’m a blogger!), sometimes you just need something straightforward to hold on to.
If you’re looking for inspiration to encourage your new journey together, you’re in the right place!
In this post, we’re going to look at short but powerful sayings about love and marriage to strengthen your relationship.
You might be asking, why good newlywed quotes? Well, I am always on the lookout for pearls of wisdom that pack a punch. I am naturally a wordy person, but I also love concise words that inspire motivation and simplify the complicated!
What is a Good Newlywed Quote?
A good newlywed quote should speak life to a new couple. It should inspire, motivate, clarify and offer hope. I am not a fan “love quotes” that stereotype and create division. I’d much rather have words that build-up and offer hope!
When couples exchange vows on their wedding day, they are committing to walking with each other through life’s highs and lows: they are affirming presence. We promise to walk into an unknown future and do whatever it takes to create a healthy happy marriage.
Today’s good newlywed quotes will set you on the path to a healthier, happier and richer relationship!
How Do You Congratulate a Newlywed?
But before we dive in: Whether newlywed or an oldie, sometimes we lack the words to encourage other couples.
If you’ve been asked to give a speech at a loved one’s wedding, or perhaps you are preparing to offer words of wisdom to a newlywed couple, and don’t know where to start, I want you to know that you can still give intentional, healthy, encouraging advice to newly married couples.
If you don’t have your own words to congratulate a newlywed couple, you can borrow the wisdom of community! Check out this post, How To Encourage Newlywed Couples: 6 Practical Tips
