Wedding poems for parents, Poems for Bride, Groom and Wedding Party. Like most mothers I wanted to do a reading and after seeing your poem I knew.

We've rounded up a beautiful and cheese-free selection of wedding readings for your big day

Combing through wedding readings for your big day? It’s one of those wedding planning tasks you can’t really rush. You are, after all, looking for a collection of words that distil the relationship between you and your significant other in a meaningful, non-cheesy way. Is that best reflected in a Shakespearean sonnet (something of a wedding readings classic) or an extract from Winnie the Pooh? A droll but meaningful song lyric or a bit of William Wordsworth?

These days, like wedding style, almost anything goes when it comes to wedding readings (though if you’re getting married in a church it’s worth sounding out your priest first, as some might veto a very modern one) which makes the selection of readings to choose from pretty extensive.

To get you started, we’ve picked fifteen of our favourites wedding readings. Good news is, unlike virtually everything else on your big day, these won’t put a dent in your wedding budget.

Wedding readings



1) Extract from Captain Correlli’s Mandolin by Louis de Bernières

‘Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being in love, which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Those that truly love, have roots that grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two.’

Why we love it: it’s beautiful and meaningful without being too cheesy (two ideals on your wedding readings checklist) and there’s also extra significance if you loved the book.

2) Bob Marley on love…

‘She’s not perfect – you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together – but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break – her heart. So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyse and don’t expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there.’

Why we love it: the simplicity of this wedding reading makes it a great choice for couples with a low cheese tolerance. Also ideal for Bob Marley fans.


3) I carry your heart by E.E. Cummings

‘I carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart) I am never without it (anywhere I go you go, my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling)
I fear no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) I want no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you

Here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart)

Why we love it: E.E Cummings does excellent wedding readings.

4) Extract from The Good Morrow by John Donne

‘I wonder by my troth, what thou and I
Did, till we loved? Were we not weaned till then?
But sucked on country pleasures, childishly?
Or snorted we in the Seven Sleepers’ den?
‘Twas so; but this, all pleasures fancies be;
If ever any beauty I did see,
Which I desired, and got, ’twas but a dream of thee.’

Why we love it: Donne is another solid wedding reading choice. The whole poem works just as well as a wedding reading, but if you want something shorter this is a particularly beautiful extract.

5) Letter from Johnny Cash to June Carter (1994)

‘We get old and get used to each other. We think alike. We read each others’ minds. We know what the other wants without asking. Sometimes we irritate each other a little bit.

Maybe sometimes take each other for granted. But once in a while, like today, I meditate on it and realise how lucky I am to share my life with the greatest woman I ever met.’

Why we love it: it captures the feeling of finding your soulmate in an uncomplicated way (though anyone who’s seen Walk The Line might possibly hope for an easier marriage than theirs)


6) The Apache wedding prayer

Now you will feel no rain, For each of you will be shelter to the other.

Now you will feel no cold, For each of you will be warmth to the other.

Now there is no more loneliness, For each of you will be companion to the other.

Now you are two bodies, But there is one life before you.

Go now to your dwelling place, To enter into the days of your togetherness.

And may your days be good and long upon the earth.

Why we love it: it’s unfussy but beautiful


7) Sonnet 116 by William Shakespeare

‘Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no; it is an ever-fixed mark,
That looks on tempests, and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.
Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle’s compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

Why we love it: sometimes there’s a reason why a wedding reading is really popular. As poems about love go, if in doubt go Shakespeare or go home

8) I wanna be yours by John Cooper-Clarke

‘I wanna be your vacuum cleaner
breathing in your dust
I wanna be your Ford Cortina
I will never rust
If you like your coffee hot
let me be your coffee pot
You call the shots
I wanna be yours

I wanna be your raincoat
for those frequent rainy days
I wanna be your dreamboat
when you want to sail away
Let me be your teddy bear
take me with you anywhere
I don’t care
I wanna be yours

I wanna be your electric meter
I will not run out
I wanna be the electric heater
you’ll get cold without
I wanna be your setting lotion
hold your hair in deep devotion

Deep as the deep Atlantic ocean
that’s how deep is my devotion.’

Why we love it: If you want to tickle your guests with a funny wedding reading rather than have them weeping in the pews, then this is a good pick (or if you’re going for multiple wedding readings this would be offset nicely with something more serious)



9) Extract from A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway

‘At night, there was the feeling that we had come home, feeling no longer alone, waking in the night to find the other one there, and not gone away; all other things were unreal. We slept when we were tired and if we woke the other one woke too so one was not alone. Often a man wishes to be alone and a woman wishes to be alone too and if they love each other they are jealous of that in each other, but I can truly say we never felt that. We could feel alone when we were together, alone against the others. We were never lonely and never afraid when we were together.’

Why we love it: it’s subtler than a lot of other wedding readings but still gets the point across

10) Extract from Blue-eyed Devil by Lisa Kleypas

‘I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate beings to hinge together.’

Why we love it: this would also work nicely as one of those order of service intros for guests to read when they’re waiting for you to arrive in your knockout wedding dress

11) Wild Awake by Hilary T. Smith

‘People are like cities: We all have alleys and gardens and secret rooftops and places where daisies sprout between the sidewalk cracks, but most of the time all we let each other see is is a postcard glimpse of a skyline or a polished square. Love lets you find those hidden places in another person, even the ones they didn’t know were there, even the ones they wouldn’t have thought to call beautiful themselves.’

Why we love it: It’s the perfect length compared to some wedding readings and a lovely extended simile.

12) Extract from Every Day by David Levithan

‘This is what love does: It makes you want to rewrite the world. It makes you want to choose the characters, build the scenery, guide the plot. The person you love sits across from you, and you want to do everything in your power to make it possible, endlessly possible. And when it’s just the two of you, alone in a room, you can pretend that this is how it is, this is how it will be.’

Why we love it: beautiful but not too flowery

13) Albert Einstein on relativity

‘Gravitation cannot be held responsible for people falling in love. How on earth can you explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love? Put your hand on a stove for a minute and it seems like an hour. Sit with that special girl for an hour and it seems like a minute. That’s relativity.’

Why we love it: again this one’s not too flowery – and highly topical if you happen to be marrying a scientist (bit of a niche sub-story there: wedding readings for scientists)

14) Delirium by Lauren Oliver

‘Love: a single word, a wispy thing, a word no bigger or longer than an edge. That’s what it is: an edge; a razor. It draws up through the centre of your life, cutting everything in two. Before and after. The rest of the world falls away on either side.

Why we love it: sometimes the simplest wedding readings are the best.

15) Extract from Les Miserables by Victor Hugo

‘You can give without loving, but you can never love without giving. The great acts of love are done by those who are habitually performing small acts of kindness. We pardon to the extent that we love. Love is knowing that even when you are alone, you will never be lonely again. And great happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved. Loved for ourselves. And even loved in spite of ourselves.’

Why we love it: a wedding reading from Les Mis? What’s not to love!

16) Soul Mates by Lang Leav

‘I don’t know how you are so familiar to me — or why it feels less like I am getting to know you and more as though I am remembering who you are. How every smile, every whisper brings me closer to the impossible conclusion that I have known you before, I have loved you before — in another time, a different place, some other existence.’

Why we love it: it feels beautifully earnest

17) Extract from Gift From The Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh

‘When you love someone; you do not love them all the time, in exactly the same way, from moment to moment. It is impossibility. It is even a lie to pretend to. And yet this is exactly what most of us demand. We have so little faith in the ebb and flow of life, of love, of relationships. We leap at the flow of the tide and resist in terror its ebb. We are afraid it will never return. We insist on permanency, on duration, on continuity; when the only continuity possible, in life as in love, is in growth, in fluidity — in freedom, in the sense that the dancers are free, barely touching as they pass, but partners in the same pattern. The only real security is not in owning or possessing, not in demanding or expecting, not in hoping, even. Security in a relationship lies neither in looking back to what was in nostalgia, nor forward to what it might be in dread or anticipation, but living in the present relationship and accepting it as it is now. Relationships must be like islands, one must accept them for what they are here and now, within their limits — islands, surrounded and interrupted by the sea, and continually visited and abandoned by the tides.’

Why we love it: it’s great relationship advice

18) Extract from Plato’s Symposium

‘Humans have never understood the power of Love, for if they had they would surely have built noble temples and altars and offered solemn sacrifices; but this is not done, and most certainly ought to be done, since Love is our best friend, our helper, and the healer of the ills which prevent us from being happy.

To understand the power of Love, we must understand that our original human nature was not like it is now, but different. Human beings each had two sets of arms, two sets of legs, and two faces looking in opposite directions. There were three sexes then: one comprised of two men called the children of the Sun, one made of two women called the children of the Earth, and a third made of a man and a woman, called the children of the Moon. Due to the power and might of these original humans, the Gods began to fear that their reign might be threatened. They sought for a way to end the humans’ insolence without destroying them.

It was at this point that Zeus divided the humans in half. After the division the two parts of each desiring their other half, came together, and throwing their arms about one another, entwined in mutual embraces, longing to grow into one. So ancient is the desire of one another which is implanted in us, reuniting our original nature, making one of two, and healing the state of humankind.

Each of us when separated, having one side only, is but the indenture of a person, and we are always looking for our other half. Those whose original nature lies with the children of the Sun are men who are drawn to other men, those from the children of the Earth are women who love other women, and those from the children of the Moon are men and women drawn to one another. And when one of us meets our other half, we are lost in an amazement of love and friendship and intimacy, and would not be out of the other’s sight even for a moment. We pass our whole lives together, desiring that we should be melted into one, to spend our lives as one person instead of two, and so that after our death there will be one departed soul instead of two; this is the very expression of our ancient need. And the reason is that human nature was originally one and we were a whole, and the desire and pursuit of the whole is called Love.’

Why we love it: it’s a long one, but it’s so elegantly written

19) Extract from De Imitatio Christi by Thomas à Kempis

‘Love often knows no limits but overflows all bounds. Love feels no burden, thinks nothing of troubles, attempts more than it is able, and does not plead impossibility, because it believes that it may and can do all things. For this reason, it is able to do all, performing and effecting much where he who does not love fails and falls.

‘Love is watchful. Sleeping, it does not slumber. Wearied, it is not tired. Pressed, it is not straitened. Alarmed, it is not confused, but like a living flame, a burning torch, it forces its way upward and passes unharmed through every obstacle.’

Why we love it: it’s touching – and as wedding readings go, it’s definitely a tear-jerker!

Choose a heartfelt reading or poem for a romantic addition to your civil ceremony . It adds a personal touch to your wedding day, and is a lovely.

10 perfect wedding poems to add a sparkle to your day

after the wedding poem

Our topic for today: Vow art that wows. Immortalize your love by creating a vow art piece you’ll cherish forever!

Without a doubt, your wedding day is one of the most unforgettable days of your life.  Making a special promise to someone to let them know that you want to be bound to them for the rest of your life is a big occassion. What better way to remember this promise than by creating and displaying your very own wedding vow art.

It wasn’t always that way. Marriage customs of the past didn’t place as much importance on wedding vows. Things have changed, and modern wedding ceremonies place a great importance on vows.

My advice is to take the necessary time to create special vows. Don’t wait until the last minute. That way, you can turn them into a piece of artwork that you’ll be proud to showcase in your home or workspace.

Wedding Vow Art Ideas

Wedding vow art can be used as part of the ceremony itself, as a display, piece of attire, or as a keepsake. Here are some unique ideas we researched to turn your wedding vows into works of art.

1. Origami Sculpture Parrot Wedding Vows

by FlorigamiShop

If you are into Japanese art, the above image needs no introduction – a hand-folded origami parrot. Made up of your wedding vows and printed on iridescent white paper, this unique papercraft piece of art is an absolutely precious idea! It comes with a handmade wood base to display the bird as well as a glass bell to keep the parrot tucked safely away.

2. Metal Picture Frame with Wedding Vows

by MySuspendedMoments

What a perfect way to display a photo from the big day. Make it even more meaningful by surrounding it with a matte that displays your vows. After the wedding, this framed photo will remind you of your special promise to each other.

3. Vow in Real Gold Foil

by Minted

From gold foil, letterpress or print, turn a special poem from your wedding or your vows into a stylish and personal piece of art.

4. Framed Wedding Vow in Heart Shape

by LEAVES and HONEY

Another option is to have your vows handwritten and framed on their own, which you can then use during the wedding ceremony and read from your framed vows aloud. Display them afterwards at the wedding reception.

5. Wedding Vow Aisle Runner

by TheLittleCanopy


Instead of walking down a traditional red carpet, why not use a unique vow aisle runner instead? Write your vows along the aisle runner for a dramatic entrance. After the ceremony, you can use your customized aisle runner as a stunning backdrop for wedding photos.

6. Wedding Vow Handkerchief

by Thread Born Memories

Want a unique gift to give your significant other after the wedding ceremony? A custom embroidered handkerchief complete with the promises you made to them on your wedding day. Later, frame and display the handkerchief as a keepsake.

7. Calligraphy Wedding Vows

by sablewoodpaperco

Having your vows professional written in calligraphy is a special way to display such meaningful words. Add them to a shadow box (like the one below) with other bits and bobs from the wedding to create a very beautiful display.

8. Framed Bouquet, Invitation, and Vows in a Shadow Box

from Amazon

Many couples dry and preserve their wedding bouquet or groom’s boutonniere as a keepsake. You can place the flower arrangements into a frame together with your wedding invitation and vows. An all-in-one keepsake idea!

9. Wedding Vow Notebook or Journal

by araga

If you or your spouse enjoy writing or keeping a journal, then a wedding vow notebook is a good gift idea. Purchase a couple of leather journals embossed with your wedding vows on the cover.

10. Lage Wedding Vow Poster

by ADoseOfDani

Great typography never goes out of style. Create a poster using your wedding vows to make a fantastic display during both your wedding and reception. Afterwards, you can hang it in your bedroom as a unique keepsake.

11. Small Wedding Vow Print

by TheOystersPearl

Sometimes small is better. Create something like this small vintage-inspired type with your wedding vow as a beautiful keepsake beside your night stand. Something for just you to appreciate and admire every night before drifting off to sleep.

12. Wedding Vow Wood Round Guest Book

by Foxbairn

We love unique guestbook ideas like the one above (check out more cool guestbook ideas here). A wood round that features your wedding vows can also double as your wedding guest book on the back.

13. Wedding Vow Time Capsule

by arrowsarah

A time capsule is a great way to look back on a special occasion. Consider making a wedding vow time capsule that will be opened at a future date.

Right after your wedding, place your wedding vows in a time capsule together with other items. You can add your invitation, photos, letters, and other keepsakes.

After making the capsule, decide on a future date to open it. This can be on your tenth wedding anniversary or on another special day. Its always fun to look back at photos and other objects from such a special day.

14. His and Hers Vow Art

by JLCustomDesigns1

A pair of wall art that beautifully displays both his and her vow art. The symmetry of these two wood framed wedding vow art pieces really makes this a look we love. These side by side vows would go well in many rooms of your house, and not look out of place.

Or kill 2 birds with one stone and include your wedding photo like this his and her vow wall decor by Canvas Vows.

15. Wedding Vow Keepsake Jewelry

by Spot Light Jewelry

Warning: this ones not for everyone. In fact, I’m not too sure if I would go out in public with it hanging around my neck. But hey, to each her own. Perhaps you identify with this idea, that’s why its on this list!! A unique way to display your wedding vows: type them out on a small scroll and insert into a tiny glass terrarium pendant.

16. Wedding Vow Wall Decal Stickers

by Right Side Stuff

Add a personal touch over your bed with vinyl wall art that features your wedding vows. You’ll be sure to have an “aww” moment every time you see it.

17. Engraved Wallet Card with Wedding Vows

by Message Me This

Have your vows engraved on a metal wallet card so that you will always carry them close by.

18. Wedding Vow Pillow

by Finch and Cotter

Everyone loves a good throw pillow. Or is it, ‘everyone loves a good pillow to throw’? I can never remember. Either way, printing your vows on a pillow is definitely a unique idea!

19. Wedding Vow Sound Wave

by Artsy Voiceprint

Not the type of couple who likes to splash personal vows around your house? Neither am I. That’s why I actually really like this idea. It’s well done as a piece of art and conversation piece in a room. Take a recording of your wedding day and turn it into a unique piece of art by capturing your wedding vows as a visual sound wave.

20. Personalized Jewelry with Wedding Vows

by Paper Anniversary Love

Again, if you’re into displaying your vows through jewelry, a matching necklace and earring set for could make a beautiful present.

21. Custom Cufflinks + Tie Clip with Vows

by Paper Anniversary Love

Neat idea. Take your vows and make them into cuff links and/or a tie pin that the groom can wear on the big day.

22. Personalized embroidered fasting tape

by MagicEmbroidery

If you are wanting to incorporate a hand fasting ceremony during the wedding, rather than rope, look into this personalize embroidered tape that can display both of your vows.

23. Papercut Ketubah

by SayAnythingDesign

MAZAL TOV on your upcoming wedding! Find a beautiful Ketubah that will fit your wedding style so that you can display it at your wedding, and afterwards as home decor.  (Check out other beautiful Ketubahs that we found here)

24. Framed Rustic Wall Clock

by RayMels

Time waits for no man … or wedding vow. Wedding vows are a personal expression of a commitment to one another and you should be able to see them every day. You can do just that by having your own wedding vows clock.

You likely put a lot of time and effort into writing your wedding vows. Don’t let them be forgotten. Take the time to preserve them and make them beautiful! Wedding vow art turns your promises into something that you can see over and over again. You and your spouse will be forever reminded about the promise you made to one another.

Wedding Thank You Poems



Where Ever We May Roam

Its not about the flowers,
it’s not about the dress.
It’s not about the gifts
or about all the rest.
It’s all about the people
and bonds and love we share.
It’s about being around
those for whom we care.
We thank you for being with us,
as we start our life anew.
We thank you for your wishes
in everything we do.
We thank you for your gift
to help build our happy home.
We thank you for your blessings
wherever we may roam.




As We Begin life's Journey

As we begin our journey
as wedded man and wife.
We want to thank you deeply,
for sharing our new life.
Your gift was much appreciated,
but your presence means much more.
Your support makes us excited
for what life has in store.
We now blend our lives together,
with our family and our friends.
With you we will discover,
what’s around life’s bends.




We Love You We and Thank You

You saw us say "I do",
and seal it with a kiss.
You saw us pledge our love,
and wish a silent wish.
You gave us all your blessings,
and made us who we are.
You want for us all good things,
whether we're near or far.
We love you we and thank you,
for all the gifts you brought.
We love you we and thank you,
for all the thoughts you thought.
We love you we and thank you,
for showing us the way.
We love you we and thank you,
for sharing our special day.




As We Became Man and Wife

Thank you for your kindness,
and wonderful wishes too.
Thank you for your help,
and all the things you do.
Thank you for your gift,
to start our life as one.
Thank you for all the little things,




As We Promised Each Our Love

Marriage is a precious bond,
made between two lovers.
Pledging deep devotion,
and forsaking all the others.
We thank you for your witness,
to our sacred vow.
And happy that you were a part,
of our here and now.
Thank you for your loving gift,
that you chose to give.
As we promised each our love,
for as long as we shall live.




You're The Best

Without you it would've been a ritual,
A kiss and a ring in a room.
Without you, it would've been formal,
A function with bride and groom,
Without you it would've been meaningless,
Barely worth the time and stress.
But with you, it was magical,
I hope you know that you're the best...




On This Joyful Milestone

On this joyful milestone,
It is good that we are not alone,
All the people who have walked with me,
Sharing their laughter and tears for free,
With fantastic stories
you’ve quenched my thirst,
With loving hands,
staunched my hurts.
You’ve skipped with me, hand-in-hand.
Singing songs as we crossed the land.
How can I thank these truest of true,
These angels of my path - people like you?




Compared to The Light of Beauty

You can have tiaras and capes,
Gold staffs and pearls draped,
To signify your greatness and superiority,
But compared to the light of Beauty,
All that glisters fades to dust,
Outshone by friendship and love.
Your care and joy has made me richer,
Much more than any gold could muster.
Your kindness has blessed me,
More contented than Royalty.
Thank You!




I Will Remember This Day

I will remember the smiles broad,
And the tears gold,
The fine frocks and suits,
And joyous looks.
I’ll remember you,
The band, the cake..
I will remember this day,
That your love helped make.




Thank You For Attending My Wedding

Thank you for attending my wedding,
For your love and for believing.
Your gift will be cherished,
Always associated with this.
Blessed of days.
Thank you for the memories,
That will live long after the fineries
Have worn away.

Funny Wedding Readings for 2019

after the wedding poem

Choosing the wedding readings for your ceremony is one of the nicest jobs of wedding planning – whatever type of ceremony you are having, there is usually room for a personal reading or two. Often it’s something that you’ll work on with your fiancé, choosing meaningful literary extracts or poems that really relate to your relationship. And alongside the vows, it’s often the part of the wedding ceremony that brings tears of joy to my eyes. The world is full of beautiful writing on love – from passionate and intense Bronte novels to light-hearted poems by Edward Monkton, there’s something for everyone out there.

Our lovely couples often mention which wedding readings they’ve chosen for their big day so we’ve selected some of our favourites to share with you this afternoon. Some of the choices I think would make excellent wedding readings for little ones to read, but if you go down this route, make sure you have a backup plan in case of stage fright!

If you’re after more inspiration, check out these posts from our archives which contain even more ideas – Say it like you mean it & Speak to me of love. And as always, if you have any wedding readings you absolutely love, please do share them in the comments box below the post, we love finding new treasures we’ve never seen before.
