Steamy scenes aren't all that Bridgerton has going for it. The Netflix sensation and book series is ripe with inspo for everything from fashion pieces to entire wedding aesthetics (hello, Regencycore). And you can't forget about the show's swoon-worthy prose. Bridgerton quotes are infamously full of angst, longing and stirring declarations of love. Isn't some of the dialogue cheesy, you ask? Well isn't that part of what makes it so great, we counter. It's also the perfect inspiration for dating app pick-up lines and love notes sent to your partner. (Just saying…)

Crafting a message that'll catch someone's eye is sometimes easier said than done. Opening up your heart in a love letter or your wedding can be even more intimidating, especially if you don't consider yourself a natural wordsmith. So allow the characters of Bridgerton to offer you some inspiration. Sure, the pop-instrumental-filled ballrooms of the series may seem a world away, but you'd be surprised at just how fitting these Bridgerton quotes are for modern messages.
