Any suggestions for good quotes to place on wedding invitations?


There are some good verses about spouses in the Quran you could use:

"And among His signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that you may dwell in peace and tranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between your (hearts): Verily in that are signs for those who reflect" (Quran 30:21).

"O Humans revere your Guardian Lord, Who created you from a single person created of like nature its mate, and from this scattered (like seeds) countless men and women. Reverence Allah through Whom you claim your mutual rights" (Quran 4:1).

13:23 Gardens of perpetual bliss: they shall enter there, as well as the righteous among their fathers, their spouses, and their offspring: and angels shall enter unto them from every gate (with the salutation): 13:24 "Peace unto you for that ye persevered in patience! Now how excellent is the final home!"

25:74 And those who pray, "Our Lord! Grant unto us wives and offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes, and give us (the grace) to lead the righteous."

40:8 "And grant, our Lord! that they enter the Gardens of Eternity, which Thou hast promised to them, and to the righteous among their fathers, their wives, and their posterity! For Thou art (He), the Exalted in Might, Full of Wisdom.

43:70 Enter ye the Garden, ye and your wives, in (beauty and) rejoicing.

49:13 O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise (each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things).

50:7 And the earth- We have spread it out, and set thereon mountains standing firm, and produced therein every kind of beautiful growth (in pairs)-

A nice idea to use quranic versus but don't decorate it to much. Try to make it simple plain.

it's better if the invitation card goes with the theme of the wedding... like using the wedding colors... embossed and big and intricate if the wedding is going to be like that... small decorative if it's going to be a more simple wedding.

The first aya Jannah mentioned is the one I've seen on most wedding invitations, and I think of it as the standard heading for a wedding card.
As for the decoration or style of card, men usually don't care much about it, they agree with whatever they feel would make their brides happy. I am myself for cards with less decorations. Recently however I saw a card for a village wedding in India, and I thought it looked amazing, never seen anything like it. It was made from some high quality thick cardboard, and decorated with thread woven around the edges. The whole thing was hand-made and looked more like a letter from one king to another in the 1200s. My friend told me that the card cost them what's equal to $10/card. I know that's too much for a card, but that was one card I'll never forget.
