A few famous thoughts on weddings and marriage:

"Marriage is a process much like a cafeteria - you carefully look over the choices, select what looks the best - and pay later."
"Love is a dream – marriage is the alarm clock."
"There is no more lovely, friendly and charming relationship, communion or company than a good marriage." (Martin Luther)
