Below are some beautiful examples I have found of wedding poems. What can be more romantic than a simple poem printed on your wedding stationery? These are not all necessarily poems you would have on your invites but I have included them here to inspire you.
Your Presence is Requested Wedding Poem
Your presence is requested at
A moment of transcendence.
The mystery of two as one
Requires your attendance.
You will witness something more
Than ordinary life:
The transformation of two souls
Into a man and wife.
A Wedding is a Party
A wedding is a party with,
Of course, a wedding cake.
But sometimes by the time it comes,
It's hard to stay awake.
People need to talk a lot,
And laugh and joke and kiss,
And cry - why do they cry? - and mention
God and love and bliss.
Two people have decided that
They'll share one house for life,
And call themselves, instead of friends,
A husband and a wife.
And so we have to get dressed up,
And eat a lot, and wait
For hours till they finally serve
The great big wedding cake
From My Present Mountaintop
From my present mountaintop
I look back whence I came:
An unexpected passage through
Some bleak and rough terrain.
I look on what you did for me:
The years of borrowed days,
The sacrifice of liberty
That only love repays;
The grace with which you gave yourselves,
Though not without great cost,
Not blaming me for fortune's gift
Nor counting what was lost.
I feel a flood of gratitude
Like sunlight through my heart,
A light that lights the candle of
The life about to start.
Getting Married Means You'll Have...
Getting married means you'll have
Someone's hand to hold,
Even when you're feeling sick,
Even when you're old.
It means when you sit down to eat,
Someone will be there,
So you won't have to tell your day
To an empty chair.
It means that you can have some kids
Just like a mum and dad,
And play with them all afternoon,
Except when they are bad.
It means that when you need some help,
Someone will help out,
Someone always near to you
So you won't have to shout.
But best of all is when it's time
To turn out all the lights:
You won't have to be alone
Those long and scary nights.
So even though you don't have toys,
You don't have to care:
Once you're married you can be
Each other's teddy bear!
Here's to Rebecca and Adam
Here's to Rebecca and Adam!
To a long and happy life
In an Eden of their making
As a husband and a wife.
Here's to Rebecca and Adam!
To the passion and the will
That has brought them here together:
May it long sustain them still!
Here's to Rebecca and Adam!
And to Matthew - all three!
And to the grace and courage
That creates a family.
May they love each other
With a love that binds them fast
To the things in life that matter
And the ecstasies that last.
I Wish my Grandmother were Here with Us
I wish my grandmother were here with us
To see and celebrate this happy day.
I have her in the centre of my heart
Just like this special rose in my bouquet.
Whoever catches this, please pass it on
To someone who is part of all you see,
To someone who has sculpted you with love,
Who means as much to you, as she to me.
Hold my Hand and I'm Yours
Hold my hand and I'm yours,
And your heart will stay close to mine,
For I know the sun must rise with the dawn,
And at night the stars must shine.
And the wind must wander the ocean
And sing with the waves of the sea;
Just so, I know, I'll be by your side,
And you will be wedded to me.
And you will be wedded to me, my love,
And I will be wedded to you;
For I know the tide must turn with the moon,
And the spring must return ever new.
And the sky must weep that the hillsides
May laugh in the green of their joy;
And the leaves must turn red, brown, and gold
That the earth might their riches employ.
And love like a mad, swollen hunger,
And love like an unending song,
And love like the silent pull of the Earth
Shall be with us all our lives long, my love,
Shall be with us all our lives long
In Memory Wedding Poem
We wish that [name] could be with us
This very special day,
'Cause he [or she] was like a rush of sun
Before he went away.
We light this candle so that we
Might bring him here awhile,
As we remember his bright flame,
His laughter and his smile.
We wish that he could share with us
The happiness we feel,
'Cause knowing that he knew our joy
Would make it all more real.
But even though he's not with us,
His presence is still strong,
'Cause in his heart we'll always find
The love for which we long
Please Leave for us More than a Name
(Wedding poem used as message in a memory book)
Please leave for us more than a name:
A word of love or hope or cheer,
Some sweet sign your heart was here...
If not, we thank you just the same.
Our Ages are Quite Different
Our ages are quite different, but
We're siblings none the less,
And on your wedding day I feel
A strong, bright tenderness.
There is a hollow in my heart
That you will always fill.
No matter who or where you are,
Your place remains there still.
And now, though you begin anew,
A husband with a wife,
Know my pride and hope and love
Are yours throughout your life.
The Vows I Take Will Be Forever Wedding Poem
The vows I take will be forever,
I'll love you all my life.
There's no part way, no holding back
Once we are man and wife.
The choice is made, and now I swim
In a far different sea,
The shores of which are bright green hills
Raised up for you and me.
Our love is like a mountainside
Awash in lovely flowers:
It is our home, our solid rock,
Where all bright things are ours.
And though of need we often must
Spend our days apart,
Our love will always be with us,
Held within the heart.
I feel it now, so strong and free,
So part of every breath
That it must live--I swear it will!--
Even after death.
These Seeds are Emblematic of Our Love
These seeds are emblematic of our love,
Here as thanks for sharing this sweet day.
As our love grows, so some of these seeds may,
Now planted in your homes, your own hearts move.
Know we need your love, as you need ours.
You and we, like plants, make our own air.
Only mutually can we bear flowers,
Unleashing all the beauty that is there.
