Quotes To Use In Your Anniversary Speech

engagement speech When writing an anniversary speech, be it for your partner or a couple you love like your parents, you may be stuck trying to find the perfect words. And whilst plagiarism is not allowed, quoting from clever people is!

Using quotes allows you to perfect the romantic part of your speech without being too cringe or resorting to another overused cliche.

The team at Speechy has written numerous speeches for various events and occasions, and as much as we love creating organic and personalised content, sometimes a great quote just nails it.

This is why we have curated our favourite anniversary quotes for you to exploit.

(Of course, if you’re looking for more than advice, feel free to check out our Bespoke Speech Writing Service or Edit Service. We’re 5-star rated for a reason)

HOW TO USE QUOTES - THE RULES

  • Make the quotes meaningful: Think about the songs, films or books that mean something to you both as a couple. If any of these have that perfect, romantic quote, chances are the recipient will love you more for it.
  • Quote recognisable names: Whilst there are many great quotes written by ‘Unknown’, the ones best received are those that are written by people you’ve actually heard of.
  • Quotes are just for romance: Quotes can also be used to add humour too.
  • Add context: Add a personal reference to the quote to make it more sentimental or humourous.
  • Get expert advice: Check out our Wedding Anniversary Blogs to see how to package your quotes up in a perfect speech.
