Wedding poems verses quotes rhymes

Love one another 
..and you will be happy.
It's as simple...
.. and as difficult as that

May this day you share 

be filled with love and laughter

May all the days ahead

be happy ever after!


Let this be the beginning of a wonderful new life 

Full of special moments to share 

Let this be the first of your dreams come true 

And of hope that will always be there… 


Let this be the beginning of a lifetime of trust 

And of caring that’s just now begun…
Let today be a day that you’ll always remember 

The day when your hearts are entwined as one

Wedding Congratulations Verses Quotes Rhymes

Marriage begins with a wedding,

Where two people promise “to have and to hold, 
To love
 and to cherish” come what may...


The comfort in a marriage comes from caring

for one another, and showing it each day…

The happiness in marriage comes from knowing that the love you
 share 
Will grow ever stronger as you go through life together.


The blessings of marriage are the fulfilment of your

Cherished hopes and dreams as your lives unfold,

And the realization of the meaning of

That beautiful promise “To have and to hold…”

Wedding poems verses quotes rhymes

As you begin your lives together 
Remember all the ways 
You told each other how you felt 
In the early days 

Capture all the moments 
And hold them in your soul 
As you join yourselves together 
To make a perfect whole 

When hard times come upon you 
Take these memories out once more 
Stand together both united 
And show trouble out the door 

Know that each supports the other 
In the good times and the bad
Take time to love one another
And don't make each other sad

Put this up on your kitchen wall
To always remember the way
To be as happy and in love
As you are on this, your Wedding Day

© V4C
Wedding poems verses quotes rhymes

Congrats and all the very best 

To you both on your wedding day

And may your future life together

Be perfect in every way

When life throws up trials and tribulations
 
Just remember this

There is nothing that can't be fixed

With an “I’m sorry” and a kiss

More Wedding Poems Verses Quotes

As you make this life commitment today

To travel together down life's pathway

Our wishes are with you for a wonderful life

As you “I do” to become husband and wife

Congratulations and best wishes for your future together

© V4C

Today is a day you will always remember 
The greatest in anyone's life 
You'll start off the day just two people in love 
And end it as Husband and Wife

It's a brand new beginning the start of a journey 
With moments to cherish and treasure 
And although there'll be times when you both disagree
These will surely be outweighed by pleasure

You'll have heard many words of advice in the past 
When the secrets of marriage were spoken 
But you know that the answers lie hidden inside
Where the bond of true love lies unbroken

So live happy forever as lovers and friends 
It's the dawn of a new life for you
As you stand there together with love in your eyes 
From the moment you whisper 'I do'

And with luck, all your hopes, and your dreams can be real 
May success find it's way to your hearts 
Tomorrow can bring you the greatest of joys 
But today is the day it all starts.

Wedding poems verses quotes rhymes

A verse for a groom or bride from their new family members. This one from the bride's grandkids but it could be adapted for any "inherited" family members

Welcome to the family, (Granddad)
Coz that's how we feel
You get no say in the matter
We're part of today's deal

Love from your "inherited" Grandkids

Marriage Poems Congratulation Verses Quotes

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

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

Wedding poems verses quotes rhymes

Maybe...We are supposed to meet the wrong people 
before meeting the right one so that, 
when we finally meet the right person, 
we will know how to be grateful for that gift
Maybe...it is true that we don't know 
what we have got until we lose it,
but it is also true that we don't know 
what we have been missing until it arrives

Maybe...the happiest of people don't necessarily 
have the best of everything; 
they just make the most of everything 
that comes along their way

Maybe...the best kind of love 
is the kind you can sit on a sofa together 
and never say a word, and then walk away 
feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had

Maybe...you shouldn't go for looks; 
they can deceive. 
Don't go for wealth; even that fades away.
Go for someone who makes you smile, 
because it takes only a smile 
to make a dark day seem bright.

Maybe...you should hope for enough happiness
to make you sweet,
enough trials to make you strong,
enough sorrow to keep you human, 
and enough hope to make you happy

Maybe... Love is not about finding the perfect person,
it's about learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.'

Congratulations on Wedding Quotes Rhymes

I cannot promise you a life of sunshine;
I cannot promise riches, wealth, or gold;
I cannot promise you an easy pathway
That leads away from change or growing old.

But I can promise all my heart's devotion;
A smile to chase away your tears of sorrow;
A love that's ever true and ever growing;
A hand to hold in yours through each tomorrow.

© V4C

It's your Wedding Day 

So perfect and fine,

With all your friends round you 

 To have a good time. 

And we wish you much happiness 

Starting your lives as one, 

Always give love to each other 

 With lots of laughter and fun

Wedding Verses Quotes

The key to love is understanding…

The ability to comprehend not only the spoken word

But those unspoken gestures,

The little things that say so much by themselves.
The key to love is forgiveness…

To accept each others faults and pardon mistakes

Without forgetting, but with remembering

What you learn from them.
The key to love is sharing…

Facing your good fortune as well as the bad, together.

Both conquering problems, forever searching for ways

To intensify your happiness
The key to love is giving…

Without thought of return,

But with the hope of just a simple smile

And by giving in but never giving up.
The key to love is respect…

Realizing that you are two separate people, with different ideas.

 That you don’t belong to each other,

You belong with each other, and share a mutual bond.
The key to love is inside us all…

It takes time and patience to unlock all the ingredients.
It is the continual learning process that demands a lot of work…
.
 But the rewards are more than worth the effort…
And that is the key to love!

Wedding poems verses quotes rhymes suitable for a wedding

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

© V4C
Wedding poems verses quotes rhymes

 

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.

Getting Wed Poems Verses Quotes

Two doves meeting in the sky
Two loves hand in hand, eye to eye
Two parts of a loving whole
Two hearts and a single soul
Two stars shining big and bright
Two fires bringing warmth and light
Two songs played in perfect tune
Two flowers growing into bloom
Two doves gliding in the air
Two loves free without a care
Two parts of a loving whole
Two hearts and a single soul
Two dreams found before too late
Two lives together bound by fate
Two people cling to one another
Two people in love with each other
Two doves, can you see them soar?
Two loves – who could ask for more?
Two parts of a loving whole
Two hearts and a single soul

Wedding poems verses quotes rhymes

Sooner or later we begin to understand that love is more

Than verses on valentines and romance in the movies.
We begin to know that love is here and now, real and true,

The most important thing in our lives.
For love is the creator of our favorite memories

And the foundation of our fondest dreams.
Love is a promise that is always kept,
A fortune that can never be spent,

A seed that can flourish in even the most unlikely of places.
And this radiance that never fades,
This mysterious and magical joy,

Is the greatest treasure of all -
One known only by those who love

Wedding Rhymes

Yes, I'll marry you, my dear, and here's the reason why;

So I can push you out of bed when the baby starts to cry,

And if we hear a knocking and it's creepy and it's late,

I hand you the torch you see, and you investigate.
Yes I'll marry you, my dear, you may not apprehend it,

But when the tumble-drier goes it's you that has to mend it,

You have to face the neighbour should our labrador attack him,

And if a drunkard fondles me it's you that has to whack him.
Yes, I'll marry you, You're virile and you're lean,

My house is like a pigsty you can help to keep it clean.

That sexy little dinner which you served by candlelight,

 As I do chipolatas, you can cook it every night!
It's you who has to work the drill and put up curtain track,

 And when I've got PMT it's you who gets the flak, 

I do see great advantages,

But none of them for you, and so before you see the light,

I do, I do, I do!

Wedding Poems Verses Quotes

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,

Your 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!

Wedding Poems Verses Quotes

Ever wonder why God gives us two?

A right hand to show the left what to do.

One ear to listen and one to hear

the problems of others,
 their laughter and fears.

One eye to watch and one to behold

the beautiful treasures

that life has to hold.

One foot to travel and one to stand tall.

Two feet to land on if we should fall.

One man to stand by a woman's side;

One woman to cherish being his bride.

The love between partners

comes shining through

and that is the reason

God has made two.


May God Bless You

On Your Wedding Day

Today is the day you two become one
Entwining your lives forever;
The knot that goes into your hearts
We hope will never sever.

The strongest link that can be made
Has truth running through the core;
We wish you all the happiness in the world
And that 180 you will score.

Full of love and laughter on this day
Carry it with you all the time;
Our love and support is always here
As the mountain of life you climb.

The bells toll and the sky is blue
Sun shining bright in the sky;
Flowers as far as the eye can see
Beauty as the knot you tie.

A perfect day for the perfect love
To be declared for all to see;
We're all so happy for you both
Happy as Happy can be!

Congratulations on your Wedding day!!!

Today is your special day
Confetti and flowers reign supreme;

Your families are all here now;
To share this special event with you
And watch you take your vows.

Wedding Verses

Today we are not losing our daughter
But gaining a son we love;
Our families are joining together
With blessings from above.

May your lifes journey be blessed
Full of laughter and love;
With memories that bring smiles
Opening the cage of doves.

Suited and booted up to the nines
We all look out of this world;
The bride and groom especially though
As round the floor they twirled.

© V4C

The crowd is ready to witness this wedding blessing
On a beautiful sunny day;
The bride in white on the pillion
The groom waiting by the bay.

This sacred ground is wild and free
This marriage will be too;
We wish you both all the best
On your wedding blessing day to you!

© V4C

Very quietly the two of you will share
With witnesses chosen from the street;
We send you all our love though
A nicer couple we will never meet.

Gretna Green is very romantic
Riding through the Scottish highlands;
Your secret is safe with us
Your love will be your island.
Congratulations on your Wedding Day.

O my luve is like a red, red rose, that's newly sprung in June:
O my luve is like the melodie, That's sweetly played in tune.
As fair art thou, my bonie lass, So deep in luve am I;
And I will luve thee still, my dear, Till a` the seas gang dry.
Till a` the seas gang dry, my dear, And the rocks melt wi` the sun;
And I will luve thee still my dear, While the sands o` life shall run.
And fare thee weel, my only luve! And fare thee weel a while!
And I will come again, my luve, Tho' it were ten thousand mile

You have to face the neighbour

It's you that has to whack him. 

Yes, I'll marry you,

wedding verses for cards 


A good marriage must be created.
In the marriage the little things are the big things.
It is never being too old to hold hands.
It is remembering to say 'I love you' at least once a day.
It is never going to sleep angry.
It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives.
It is standing together and facing the world.....
It is forming a circle of love that gathers in the whole family.
It is speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.
It is having the capacity to forgive and forget.
It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow.
It is a common search for the good and the beautiful.
It is not only marrying the right person.
It is being the right partner.

Wilfred A. Peterson.

Wedding poems verses quotes rhymes

Reprise

Geniuses of countless nations
Have told their love for generations
Till all their memorable phrases
Are common as goldenrod or daisies.
Their girls have glimmered like the moon,
Or shimmered like a summer moon,
Stood like a lily, fled like a fawn,
Now the sunset, now the dawn,
Here the princess in the tower
There the sweet forbidden flower.
Darling, when I look at you
Every aged phrase is new,
And there are moments when it seems
I've married one of Shakespeare's dreams. 

Ogden Nash (1902-1971)

Wedding poems verses quotes rhymes

To Keep Your Marriage Brimming

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

Ogden Nash (1902-1971) 

© V4C

Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. 

And stand together yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.

Khalil Gibran

Poem From Bride to Groom

(Jeremy) have a lovely day
As you enter Paradise
Look out for the girl in the big white frock
You'll find her very nice

Take your place by her side
Squeeze her hand with a loving touch
Say "I do" and she will too
For she loves you very much

She knows that you love her too
And that you'll always be her rock
This card, it comes with the fondest love
From the girl in the big white frock
