THE WEDDING CIRCLE

Short Poems To Read At Your Wedding

Here are a few short and touching poems which are easy to read if your Made of
Honour or Mother of the Bride is nervous of public speaking.
If you want a verse that is touching and romantic you may be inclined to choose
something down to earth, it doesn’t have to be Shakespeare!

 

She Walks In Beauty by Lord Byron

When the one whose hand you’re holding
Is the one one who holds your heart
When the one whose eyes you gaze into
Gives your hopes and dreams their start,
When the one you think of first and last
Is the one who holds you tight,
And the things you plan together
Make the whole world seem just right,
When the one whom you believe in
puts their faith and trust in you,
You’ve found the one and only love
You’ll share your whole life through.

This day I married my best friend
the one I laugh with as we share life’s wonderous zest,
as we find new enjoyments and experience all that’s best.
the one I live for because the world seems brighter
as our happy times are better and our burdens feel much lighter.
the one I love with every fiber of my soul.
We used to feel vaguely incomplete, now together we are whole.

Promise by Author Unknown

A marriage is a promise
That two hearts gladly make
A promise to be tender
To help, to give and take

A marriage is a promise
To be kind and understanding
To be thoughtful and considerate
Fair and undemanding

A marriage is a promise
To share one life together
A love-filled promise meant to be
Kept lovingly forever

 

Wedding Prayer by Robert Louis Stevenson

Lord, behold our family here assembled.
We thank you for this place in which we dwell,
for the love that unites us,
for the peace accorded us this day,
for the hope with which we expect the morrow,
for the health, the work, the food,
and the bright skies that make our lives delightful;
for our friends in all parts of the earth.

Blessing by Elizabeth Bishop

The fountains mingle with the river,

And the rivers with the ocean;

The winds of heaven mix forever,
With a sweet emotion;
Nothing in the world is single;

All things by a law divine
In one another’s being mingle:-
Why not I with thine?

See! the mountains kiss high heaven,
And the waves clasp one another;
Now sister flower would be forgiven
If it disdained its brother;
And the sunlight clasps the earth,
And the moonbeams kiss the sea:-
What are all these kissing’s worth,
If thou kiss not me?

May these vows and this marriage be blessed.
May it be sweet milk,
this marriage, like wine and halvah.
May this marriage offer fruit and shade
like the date palm.
May this marriage be full of laughter,
our every day a day in paradise.
May this marriage be a sign of compassion,
a seal of happiness here and hereafter.
May this marriage have a fair face and a good name,
an omen as welcomes the moon in a clear blue sky.
I am out of words to describe
how spirit mingles in this marriage.

Us Two ( Winnie the Pooh)

Wherever I am, there’s always Pooh,

There’s always Pooh and Me.

Whatever I do, he wants to do too,

“Where are you going today?” says Pooh:

“Well, that’s very odd ‘cos I was too.

“Let’s go together,” , says he.

“Let’s go together,” says Pooh.

So wherever I am, there’s always Pooh,

There’s always Pooh and Me.

What would I do?” I said to Pooh,

“If it wasn’t for you,” and Pooh said: “True,

It isn’t much fun for One, but Two,

We can stick together, says Pooh, says he. “That’s how it is,” says Pooh.

A.A. Milne

True Love by Author Unknown

True love is a sacred flame
That burns eternally
And none can dim its special glow
Or change its destiny
True love speaks in tender tones
And hears with gentle ear
True love gives with open heart
And true love conquers fear
True love makes no harsh demands
It neither rules nor binds
And true love holds with gentle hands
The heart that it entwines

 

We hope that one of these verses captures your imagination,
just print them out for a reading during the wedding speeches or the arrival at your wedding reception.
Some of these poems can be found on Hitched.
