Wedding Vow Poems

This gallery contains additional resources to help you write your own wedding vows.

There is no end to the number and types of wedding ceremonies. Some are steeped in tradition. Others are as new as new age. Taking into consideration your faith, denomination, and the requirements of the governing body and/or the minister or official who is going to perform the ceremony, you must determine how much leeway you will be given in modifying traditional vows or whether or not you will be given the opportunity of creating your own ceremony and/or vows.

The Meaning of Love

wedding vows

Love is patient, love is kind.

It does not envy, it does not boast,

It is not proud.

It is not rude, it is not self-seeking,

It is not easily angered,

It keeps no record of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil

But rejoices with the truth.

It always protects, always trusts,

Always hopes, always perserveres.

Poems for Use in Weddings

Poem No. 1 - Cycles

Wildflowers bloom on a mountainside,

As icy waters on their tumbling ride,

Flow in haste to meet the Sea,

On a cycle that will always be.

Cycles, cycles everyplace,

Even in my life, I face

The fact that cycles often race

With no regard to proper pace.

So I was born and grew up fast,

And now I'm free to love at last,

And need [Bride or Groom's Name] to complete the chain

Of the cycle that is in my name.

Poem No. 2 - Two Birds

Two birds begin a journey long,

From different points in far off lands;

With a luring urge - in heart a song,

Two novices heed life's commands.

As they make their great migration,

Their feeble feet turn to taloned hands;

And the two reach their destination

As seasoned travelers in the northern lands.

Still unaware that the other lives,

Each alights upon the very same tree;

And there the two, as if guided by God,

Fall madly in love and marry.

Thus so it is with [Bride and Groom];

Two birds which Heaven's winds did blow

To this blessed rendezvous of life,

Like the two birds at Capistrano.

Poem No. 3 - The Recipe of Love

The recipe of love must always include

Some herbs and spices for fortitude;

A tablespoon of forgiveness -

A clove of loyalty -

A cup of faith -

And a sprig of honesty;

A pinch of patience -

A teaspoon of trust -

A cup of friendship -

And a bit of lust;

Mix all these herbs and spices well -

No other recipe could ever excel;

Add (Bride's Name) and (Groom's Name) for proper effect;

Then saute the whole in two cups of respect.

Poem No. 4 - Eternity
(For a Second Wedding Ceremony or Restatement of Vows)

I smile whenever I recall

The special moments we have had;

Walking always hand in hand

Through the good times and the bad.

Sometimes, I think it is a dream --

The love you give me could not be;

But then when you are in my arms

There's no mistake in its purity.

Whether I'm with you or far away,

My thoughts are always drawn to you

Like a compass needle pointing North

To a love much more than true.

Of all the people on this Earth --

How lucky can a person be;

To have found the likes of you, my love,

With whom to share eternity!
