Wedding poems and readings provide a personal touch during a traditional, scripted ceremony.
The verses below are varied in length and style – some rhyme strictly, some rhyme mid-line, others are prose. A couple could be read by a child…what an excellent confidence-building experience!
My 13 year old grandson read part of the speech at his auntie’s wedding…never was there such a proud family!
WEDDING POEMS AND READINGS
Remember This Day
Remember this day! May it infuse you with the joy of this union, Warm hearts with the glow of family communion. Feel the love of friends in their happy greetings, And forge new bonds with first time meetings. Remember this day! Look at the room and the people around you! See the loving pride that supports and surrounds you. The happy smile, the teary eye, the childhood memories, the wistful sigh Remember this day! And when life’s storms roar and rage, Recall this moment, turn back the page – Feel once more the love you share, Know that love will always be there. Remember this day! For today you’re bound by promises made, Vows of marriage that will never fade. And whenever clouds shroud your way…. Always look back – Remember This Day!
“Remember This Day” lends itself to a child reading those three words before each verse with an adult reading the verse…and a conjoined reading for the final Remember This Day.
A Sacred Flame
May the vows you exchange on your wedding day Warm your lives together in every way. As your onward journey as a couple starts Let love light a candle deep in your hearts. A flame to unite you, a sacred spark, A flame which will gently glow through the dark. A light in the window, a smile from afar, Your love shining bright as evening’s first star. When the paths you walk are narrow and tough. When you stumble and fall, when the road is rough, Feel for the hand you are now holding tight, And guide each other through the blackest night. And know that tomorrow, the sun will rise, For you’ll see it in each other’s eyes No matter what storm clouds come along You’re together, forever, loving and strong.
A Boy Met A Girl, A Girl Met A Boy
A boy met a girl and he saw more than her smile, He saw a lifetime of possibilities, A woman he would love, And a soul he recognised from a time he had forgotten. He sensed the sweetness of her joy, The force of her wrath – And adored her for both. A girl met a boy and she fell into his eyes, His steady gaze spoke of courage and trust. She saw the man he would become – A man strong enough to lose some battles, With a heart that would carry them both to safety. A boy met a girl, A girl met a boy, And here they are together, today, Joined by Holy Matrimony. But their hearts joined the day they met.
A Sacred Vow
A sacred vow An exchange of rings With all the joy That a wedding brings. A radiant Bride A dashing Groom Whilst friends and family Fill the room To celebrate This special day And bless the couple On their way.
May God look down upon you now And bless your lives together. May the angels sing for joy And fill your hearts with love forever. May your home be full of peace And days that ring with laughter And may you live from this day on Happily ever after!
A Fairy Tale Wedding
Once upon a time In an enchanted land Lived a pretty girl And a handsome man. They met one day And danced awhile, He fell in love With her radiant smile. They walked and talked, He took her arm He stole her heart With his boyish charm He asked his girl- “Please share my life, Marry me And be my wife?” They booked a date And said I DO! With the power of love, Fairy tales come true!
