Instagram captions for couples

It’s one of the most popular categories of Instagram snaps – the “cute couple” picture, two people in love taking a photo together. Whether you see those pictures and smile, laugh, get sad, or want to throw up, you know they’re a thing. The lovebirds always seem to jump at the opportunity to share photos of themselves with the world, whether it’s to share happiness with their followers or just to brag a little bit. In any case, posting your couples shots to Instagram is a great way to share your love and your life with the people who follow you. Of course, every great photo needs a great caption, and for some of us that’s where the trouble starts – we can get a great photo, but what should we say about it? That’s what this article is for – we’re going to present you with some of our best ideas for couple selfies captions.

We’ve previously offered up a ton of ideas for your best friend captions and selfie captions, and we’ve got a list of “I love you more than” captions as well, and if you end up in front of that romantic waterfall we have captions for that as well. Now you and bae can choose the perfect words to adorn your Instagram couple selfies. (If you’re no longer with your special someone, then maybe this list of captions for your ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend will be more your speed.)

Obviously, it’s important to think about what kind of couple you are, so your Instagram couple selfies actually seem genuine to your personality. We’ve broken down our caption ideas into categories, based on your couple personality, or just the mood of your selfie. No matter what category you fit into, we’ve got the phrases and captions you need to keep your Instagram posts great, so bookmark this page and keep referring back to us for more quote and caption ideas. We’ll keep updating it! (Last updated June 2019!)

What Is a Cute Couple?

If you’re the couple who is just “too cute together”—that’s what everybody tells you, anyway—we’ve got some great ideas for you. You’re the couple who is constantly happy and sweet to each other. Your friends may say, “You guys make me want to throw up!” but secretly, they’re just jealous that they don’t have the kind of relationship you do. Here’s the list of captions we’ve got for all you cutesy-type couples.

  • We go together like cupcakes and frosting.
  • You are my favorite distraction.
  • Some people are worth melting for.
  • I like when you smile, but I love when I’m the reason.
  • I know they say there’s plenty of fish in the sea, but I think you’re my Nemo.
  • Can I tie your shoes? I don’t want you falling for anyone else.
  • I don’t care if it’s rude to stare—you’re cute and therefore I shall stare.
  • I fell in love with you because of a million things you never knew you were doing.

  • Let’s be weird together, because I don’t want anyone else.
  • Love is a friendship set to music.

Silly Couple Captions

You’re that couple that’s the life of the party and the goofiest ones in the room. You make each other laugh, and other people can’t help but smile when they’re around you either. You might be a silly couple if you’ve ever ruined a romantic moment with an ill-timed joke. You’re like the class clown times two. If this description fits you and your significant other, we’ve got some silly captions for you to add to those goofy Instagram pictures—you know, the ones where you’re making the kind of faces that only the other can love.

  • Haters gonna hate, and players gonna play.
  • Everything you’ve ever wanted is one step outside your comfort zone.

  • Here is my heart, accept it please because I am so clumsy and I am afraid I just might lose it.
  • Sometimes I look at you and I wonder how I got to be so damn lucky.
