75 wedding captions to celebrate the big day

Say "I do" to these short, funny and inspirational messages perfect for couples or guests.

The big day has arrived! The next stop? Happily ever after, of course.

Whether you're a guest, relative, part of the wedding party or one half of the newly-minted couple, you may be in the market for a wedding caption to use on Instagram along with the amazing snaps you plan to post.

Naturally, if you aren't one of the two people walking down the aisle, proper wedding etiquette dictates that you wait until the couple has shared the first photos online. After that, however, have at it.

From the flowers and table settings to the cake and reception, share all the details of the big day. And when you do, you're going to need just the right quote or saying to caption whatever you post.

Fortunately, we've got all the wedding captions you need in the collection below. Included among them are short sayings, funny captions, traditional messages and just about anything else you're looking for to mark the special occasion.

Need something cute? Try "Hugs and kisses from the new Mr. and Mrs." Or, if the moment calls for something more elegant, use "Black tie. White dress. A love for the ages."

While the photos of the day are sure to take center stage on your grid, using the perfect caption is like icing on the wedding cake.
