Borrowed Words to Make Her Say “Yes!”

Aristotle

A momentous occasion such as proposing to that special someone merits the most beautiful words…but sometimes, words can fail you. Emotions have a way of making you choke mid-speech, or getting you to stutter (thereby threatening to ruin the moment). To avoid a disastrous wedding proposal or an exchange of vows, consider using borrowed words uttered or written by famous people. If they resonate with you, they can speak for you when the moment renders you speechless.

A promise of forever

You can surprise the love of your life by leaving a note on their bathroom mirror, closet door, or under their pillow, describing how spending the rest of your lives together would be like. Then you can add another surprise by following it up with a gorgeous engagement ring!

Unforgettable vows

You don’t need to be a professional writer to come up with words that echo throughout your married life (and beyond). You can always borrow words from notable authors, poets, musicians, and others who have described love in the best ways possible. Below are some examples you can use for your exchange of wedding vows.
