Love Poems For Wedding

Love wedding poems describe the love ripple waves of the bride’s and groom’s hearts. These poetic tunes fill with joy never experienced.

1. Filled with love

You made me realize how empty I was without you.
My heart was filled with nothing but vacuum
Till you entered my life and filled it with love.


2. Love (III)

Love bade me welcome: yet my soul drew back,
Guilty of dust and sin.
But quick-ey’d Love, observing me grow slack
Form my first entrance in,
Drew nearer to me, sweetly questioning
If I lacked anything.

A guest, I answer’d, worthy to be here:
Love said, You shall be he.
I, the unkind, ungrateful? Ah my dear,
I cannot look at thee.
Love took my hand and smiling did
Who made the eyes but I?

Truth, Lord, but I have marr’d them: let my shame
Go where it doth deserve.
And know you not, says Love, who bore the blame?
My dear, then I will serve.
You must sit down, says Love, and taste my meat:
So I sat and ate.

George Herbert

This feeling of eternal happiness flowing like fierce river from my heart to yours,
Is the proof that we are united as one.
Help me bridge both ends of this love river
Arresting happiness forever.
I wish your love flows within me as my blood.
It will be proof of you being my second-half.


4. Soulmates

Now I believe in soulmates.
Now I owe you my life
My dreams, aims, goals, achievements.
I promise to share your dreams, contribute to your goals and also stand with you in failures.


5. Sonnet 116

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:
Oh, 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 write, nor do I ever love a man.

William Shakespeare

6. Eternal Happiness

From my heart to yours
This feeling of eternal happiness goes on flowing like a fierce river.
Our wedding will bridge both ends and the happiness will be arrested forever.


7. Song of my heart

My heart is humming a song.
Song that I have never listened to
Nor do I understand its meaning.
These new and fresh love tunes have filled my heart with delightment.


Short Wedding Poem

This is not amusement, this is our wedding.


9. When the brain and heart are united, every confusion ends!
It’s like when honey mixes with water, it creates the best blend.


10. Though husband and wife,
for lifetime we will be friends.


11. I want you for the rest of my life.
You are Gods gift for the best of my life.

We are tied together with the glue of love which is unbreakable.
I will never leave you, no matter what!”

16. The Gift

In you are flowers and firelight,
stars and songbirds,
the scent of summer,
the stillness just before dawn.
I love you today,
dressed in glory.
I will love you always-
dancing, singing, reading, making, planning, arguing.
I will love you cantankerous, and tired,
courageous and in terror,
joyful, fearful and triumphant.
I will love you through all weathers and all change.
For all you are is precious to me.
And every day I live with you
and share your love
is a gift to me.

Pam Brown

17. Better Half

I am incomplete without you.
Come to my life like a morning dew.
Only you could be my better half, I always knew.
Let me be the luckiest amongst a few.


18. The Minute I Heard My First Love Story

The minute I heard my first love story
I started looking for you,
Not knowing how blind that was.
Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere.
They’re with each other all along.


19. Married life

I just need you by my side

Married life is full of ups and downs.
But we will overcome all unavoidable and unpleasant situations.
I just need you by my side and we can swim through.
Illuminate my ways with your love, and let’s ride through.


20. In Your Light I Learn How to Love

In your light I learn how to love.
In your beauty, how to make poems.
You dance inside my chest, where no one sees you,
but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.


21. Oh my better half!

Oh my better half,
I am incomplete without you.
I am the luckiest one to have you.
Baby you are my life partner, my soulmate, my dream come true!


22. Touched By An Angel

We, unaccustomed to courage
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness
until love leaves its high holy temple
and comes into our sight
to liberate us into life.
Love arrives
and in its train come ecstasies
old memories of pleasure
ancient histories of pain.
Yet if we are bold,
Love strikes away the chains of fear
from our souls.
We are weaned from our timidity
In the flush of love’s light
we dare be brave
And suddenly we see
that love costs all we are
and will ever be.
Yet it is only love
which sets us free.

Maya Angelou

23. A Word To Husbands

True love is the greatest thing in the world
except for a nice MLT — mutton, lettuce and tomato sandwich,
where the mutton is nice and lean and the tomato is ripe.

Ogden Nash

24. Believe me

Do I need to promise a shining star and the moon?
Do I need to prove my love by fighting some goon?
Believe me, you only are my moon.
Be mine forever, be my boon.


25. Wedding Vow Haiku

I promise to love
and will gladly honour you
but obey? no way!

by Tracy Davidson

26. Your Personal Penguin

To keep your marriage brimming,
With love in the loving cup,
Whenever you’re wrong admit it;
Whenever you’re right, shut up.

Sandra Boynton

27. Marriage

Finally the day is here

Image: iStock

Weeks and weeks to prepare
Running here and there
Arranging the church
Your vows to rehearse
Hoping your day will be bliss
Preparing the guest list none amiss
Flowers, rings, the wedding cake
Present list for you to make
Wedding cars, ribbons to tie
Emotions running high
Finally the day is here
Time is drawing near
Meet your man, make your vow
Happiness at least for now
Two people joined together as one
Hanky panky when guests have gone.

Mrs Dawn Moore

28. The Princess Bride

We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird,
and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours,
we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.”

Dr. Seuss

29. A Groom’s Thoughts

Wakey wakey open your eyes,
Today is the best day in both of our lives.
Today we’ll be joined in matrimony,
Us together my Princess, you and Me.

Climb out of bed my darling and begin to dress,
I know today you’re sure to impress,
With a flowing outfit I am longing to see,
Made more perfect with your glowing, natural beauty.Your hair’s been done perfect, your make up too,Soon we’ll be married and my dreams will come true.

At the church I’ll be waiting for you to arrive,
To begin the new chapter of the rest of our lives.
There at the church I eagerly wait,
For you to arrive of course fashionably late,
Over the brow the car does appear,
Soon you’ll be in my arms with nothing to fear.

The Wedding March begins the room filled with pride,
To see the joining of love between myself and my bride,
As you walk down the aisle the emotion is felt,
And as my eyes fixed upon you my heart melted.
The ceremony begins and love fills the air,
The love we feel for each other so pure so rare,
With tears in our eyes we say our I do’s,
And promise to each other this love we won’t lose.

The ceremonies over, the register is signed,
The woman I’ve married I was lucky to find,
Next to the reception where good times awaits,
To celebrate the love of two perfect soulmates.
At the reception the food begins to arrive,
On each table conversations are alive,
Two families mixing and becoming one,
New friends and acquaintances now the welcomes are done.
Soon are the speeches from best man and co.,
With smiles and warmth from laughter in flow,
Then with the toasts to us the two,
I gaze and feel my full love for you.
Now the first dance in front of our guests,

Stood close together chest to chest,
The music is flowing my heart begins to pull,
My wife in my arms, my life is now full.
The evening begins and the drinks start to flow,
Everyone’s dancing and enjoying the show,
But times getting on and the room starts to empty,
We thank them for coming and sharing emotions a-plenty.
The evening draws to a close and soon it will end,
But never will our love with me and my best friend,
Our memories of this day will last forever so true,
And remember my wife I will always love you!”

Craig Astley

30. Be my Homer

I wanna be your Marge.
If I’m your Norfolk Broads
Will you be my barge?
Let’s please be Tom and Barbara,
I will show you The Good Life.
Even though we’re not yet married
I would love to be your wife.

I’ve the passion Lily Munster
has for her dear Herman.
I would love you if you were ginger,
I would love you if you were German.
Like Mr and Mrs Huxtable,
We’d smooch even when we’re wrinkly.
I’ll even consider ironing your shirts,
But I hope you like them crinkly.

Like Mr and Mrs Incredible
I’m flexible and you’re tough.
But if you promise to be my true love
That will always be enough.
Like Bonny and that Clyde guy
without all the dying.
Like Gwyneth and that Coldplay man
without all the crying.
My partner in crime, the love of my life,
My muse, my joy, my fun.
Please be my one and only,
Cos you’ve always been ‘The One’.

CJ Munn

31. Marriage Is For Life, Not Just The Wedding Day

Girls, you have to work hard at being wed
It’s not just about what you do in bed!
You have to compromise in this life
From wife to husband and husband to wife

He isn’t perfect (they never are!)
He’ll cherish you less than he does his new car
He won’t do the dishes or pick up his smalls
He’ll belch and fart and scratch his balls

He won’t give you flowers or take you out
Still drinks with his mates, what’s that all about?
But don’t constantly shout, give him a break
Just go with the flow, you must give and take
Cause you’re no saint either, just remember that
You won’t change the wheel when the tyre is flat
‘I’ve just done my nails’, he’ll hear you sigh
Then you’ll render him speechless with a little cry

And girls when you argue, fight and scrap
Just remember why you married your lovely chap
Your knees still go weak when he cracks a smile
He’s your Mr Wonderful, wins hands down by a mile!

So remember to always have a laugh together
To face challenges head on whatever the weather
Talk and talk and talk some more
Make home your sanctuary, behind that front door

For forty long years I’ve now been wed
But I wouldn’t change a thing it has to be said
There’s been pain and heartache, dark moments and all
But we’ve come through it together and we’re still having a ball!”

Denise Jones

32. Recipe For Love

Put the love, good looks and sweet temper into a well furnished house.
Beat the butter of youth to a cream, and mix well together with the blindness of faults.
Stir the pounded wit and good humor into the sweet argument,
then add the rippling laughter and common sense.
Work the whole together until everything is well mixed and bake gently forever.


33. Roll on the Wedding!

The band has been booked, the cake has been made,
the photographer’s chosen, all bills have been paid.
The guests are decided, the menu too;
Something borrowed? Check! Ditto old and blue.

The stationery’s been ordered, along with the flowers,
favours are done after fiddling for hours.
The stag do’s a blur, same goes for the Hen –
won’t be drinking that much in one sitting again!

The dress has been picked,
accessories bought;
there’s nothing to schedule, no more
to sort.
After endless to-do lists for over a year,
it’s time to relax; the big day is here!
Sitting here with my girls as our hair gets done,
I can’t help feeling lucky to have found ‘the One’ –
Just think, by lunchtime I’ll be his new wife!
Roll on the wedding, and our new married life!

Catherine Smith

34. The Divine Comedy

The more love we receive, the more love we shine forth

Image: iStock

The love of God, unutterable and perfect,
flows into a pure soul the way light rushes
into a transparent object. The more love we
receive, the more love we shine forth; so
that, as we grow clear and open, the more
complete the joy of loving is. And the more
souls who resonate together, the greater
the intensity of their love for, mirror-like,
Each soul reflects the other.


35. Our Souls Are Mirrors

God must have kneaded you and I
from the same dough
rolled us out as one on the baking sheet
must have suddenly realized
how unfair it was
to put that much magic in one person
and sadly split that dough in two
how else is it that
when i look in the mirror
i am looking at you
when you breathe
my own lungs fill with air
that we just met but we
have known each other our whole lives
if we were not made as one to begin with

Rupi Kaur

36. The Day Sky

Let us be like
Two falling stars in the day sky.
Let no one know of our sublime beauty
As we hold hands with God
And burn
Into a sacred existence that defies—
That surpasses
Every description of ecstasy
And love.


37. This Marriage

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 it welcomes the moon in a clear blue sky.
I am out of words to describe
how spirit mingles in this marriage.


38. Wedding Prayer

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.

Robert Louis Stevenson

39. The Wedding Vow

I did not stand at the altar, I stood
at the foot of the chancel steps, with my beloved,
and the minister stood on the top step
holding the open Bible. The church
was wood, painted ivory inside, no people—God’s
stable perfectly cleaned. It was night,
spring—outside, a moat of mud,
and inside, from the rafters, flies
fell onto the open Bible, and the minister
tilted it and brushed them off. We stood
beside each other, crying slightly
with fear and awe. In truth, we had married
that first night, in bed, we had been
married by our bodies, but now we stood
in history—what our bodies had said,
mouth to mouth, we now said publicly,
gathered together, death. We stood
holding each other by the hand, yet I also
stood as if alone, for a moment,
just before the vow, though taken
years before, took. It was a vow
of the present and the future, and yet I felt it
to have some touch on the distant past
or the distant past on it, I felt
the silent, dry, crying ghost of my
parents’ marriage there, somewhere
in the bright space—perhaps one of the
plummeting flies, bouncing slightly
as it hit forsaking all others, then was brushed
away. I felt as if I had come
to claim a promise—the sweetness I’d inferred
from their sourness; and at the same time that I had
come, congenitally unworthy, to beg.
And yet, I had been working toward this hour
all my life. And then it was time
to speak—he was offering me, no matter
what, his life. That is all I had to
do, that evening, to accept the gift
I had longed for—to say I had accepted it
as if being asked if I breathe. Do I take it?
I do. I take as he takes—we have been
practicing this. Do you bear this pleasure? I do.
