Poetry has always been the best and most romantic way of expressing one’s feelings. We all know that art is the most intense mode of individualism that the world has known. Artists, in this case, poets, live their lives with much more intensity than other people. Why not bring that intensity and romance to your wedding day by reciting a wonderful poem? You could have this special moment during your wedding reception or you can even make a poem your vow of eternal love.

One of my favorite writers is Teresa Weimer. In one of her poems, You Taught Me, she expresses love in such a majestic way, that it almost brings tears to my eyes. This could be the perfect wedding day poem and could also bring magic if you make it your vow. Here are a few lines that touched my heart and will certainly touch all of your guests’ hearts in the most powerful way.
I once asked for the world on a silver platter… until I met you,
Now you are my world and I want for nothing but your touch
Loving you has been my teacher; you taught me not to want
Being with you has been my discovery; you are all that I need
Finding you has been my salvation, I now understand grateful
But perhaps of most importantly…
Your love in return has been my everything.
Another wonderful wedding day poem belongs to Joy C. Swan and it is entitled Autumn Sonnet. There are a few lines that would make a beautiful wedding toast for both the bride and the groom. It is touchy, emotional…a perfect wedding poem.
Give me your hand my love and let us be
Close friends, fond lovers, help-mates to the end,
And best of all to be good company,
Sharing whatever else this life may send.
Come kiss me love and hold me in your arms
Before cold winter freezes all my charms.
These are just two examples of love poems that could bring the beauty and sensitivity of art to your wedding. There are so many options, however, and if you are a fan of poetry, I am sure you will find a few lines that you will identify with and that will reflect your feelings in the most accurate way. Just remember that the beauty of wedding poems also lies in the emotions it awakens in the reader’s and listeners’ hearts, not only in that of the poet.
