Wedding Poems, Poetry about Marriage

What I have been waiting for

Since I was a little girl I made a prayer to god,
that some day my soulmate would come and be my love.
I knew since the first day I met you that you were sent from above.
You have been my best friend, my love, and the one I live for.
You never let me down, you always kept your shoulder there for me to lean on.
And now I will be there for you till I die, and even when I die I will be your gaurdian angel.
An angel who will help you at your worst and hold watch over you.
I loved you since the day we met, I felt that firework burst inside.
I never thought my dreams would come true,
that is until I met you.
For all the love in me is all in you,
thank you sweetheart for making my dreams come true.

Today is a dream realized from years past
The white dress, the wedding cake, the promise of a love that lasts

Today is the beginning of a journey the two of you now share
The vow to love, honor, and cherish now seen in the rings you wear

But tomorrow, tomorrow you will wake as husband and wife
Where the person next to you is yours for life

And so my wish to you both is that when you wake each day
You will turn to each other with the same look you share today.

All Things Are Ours

All things are ours because we love
The earth below, the sky above,
The mountains, meadow, sand, and sea.
All things surounding you and me
Are but a sweet reflection of
The gentle wonder of our love.

You’ve been there for me through the good times and the bad,
The happy memories and the sad.
You are one of my dearest friends,
And I know we’ll always have each other until the end.
As I embark on this new journey and become a bride,
I hope to have you there once again by my side.
He is everything I have always imagined my husband to be,
He is genuine, he is kind, and he truly loves me.
He is the missing puzzle piece in my life,
And I am so honored and blessed to become his wife.
He will take care of me and love me as you do,
And I hope you agree that he is perfect too.
As he and I both share our soul,
We ask our family and friends to become a whole.
I hope you join us on our wedding day,
And will always be there for us along the way.

I promise to never let our friendship fade,
Will you be my Bridesmaid?

From parents to their son

Today (dear Son), as you walk down the aisle
You’ll see all the faces wearing a smile.
But as we remember those young tender years
Our smiles will conceal a few hidden tears.
They’re not tears of sorrow, but tears full of joy
As we’re both thinking back to our dear little boy
And now you have grown up and made us so proud
As you smile for the camera and the rest of the crowd
Remember dear (name) as you take your new wife
You’re still very much a part of our life!
We’re gaining a daughter. not losing a son,
You’re new lives as husband and wife have begun
So be blissfully happy and enjoy your ‘Big Day’
Have a wonderful marriage with a rose strewn way!

From This Day Forward

From this day forward,
You shall not walk alone.
My heart will be your shelter,
And my arms will be your home.

Love poem on wedding day

If ever there was a dream come true,
it would be me and you.
sharing love so tenderly,
both our hearts at last set free.
soaring like a bird in the sky,
knowing our love will never die.
the two of us sharing one heart,
a joy that has filled us from the start.
I hold you in my arms and I start to quiver,
overwhelmed by your eyes, I start to shiver.
take my hand, as we walk through our days,
stand by me always, come what may.
I’ll be your strength, and you’ll be mine,
side by side throughout all time.
if ever there was a dream come true,
it is us; me and you.

May You

May you cherish these moments
For all of your life
As you step out together
As man and wife.

May the vows that you’ve taken
Remain true and strong
As you start on life’s highway
And journey along.

The first time I saw you,
The first words you spoke,
The first time we held hands,
The first time we kissed,
Our wedding day.
These are my memories, my treasures.
They are locked, safe in my heart,
And whenever I feel lonely or sad,
In my mind I live them once more,
Moment by moment,
Precisely as they happened.
And feel the happiness all over again

My Daughter the Bride

Today is the day, you have dreamed of all your life,
But I too have dreamed, of the day you’d become a wife.
When you were a little girl, you played dress-up as the bride,
The daydream would then come, I’d be standing by your side.

We would then be looking, at a reflection in the mirror,
You in your dress, me with a tear.
You would be so beautiful, you’d take my breath away,
Your eyes so bright and dancing, it had to be your day.

The reflection in the mirror would change, you are little again,
Playing like a bride, as my heart remembers when.
The memories come rushing back, just like it were yesterday,
Laughing, singing, talking and the games that we would play.

I come back to reality, to see you standing there,
I have so much to tell you, so many things to share.
I would let you know, you are everything to me,
From the moment you were in my arms, together we would be.

I am so very proud, of the woman you are today,
I wipe away a tear of pride, as I hand you your bouquet.
When some day you have a daughter, and are in my place,
Please remember fondly, this look upon my face.

For it holds much more than love, it holds your very heart,
You are my love, my life, my child, though we will be apart.
I am losing my little girl, to a wonderful loving man,
But I know you will be fine, for this is in God’s plan.

As I leave you now to make the walk, you are destine for,
I give you one last kiss for luck, and my love forevermore.
