How to Incorporate Poetry into Your Wedding


Wedding poetry has been used to sweeten up any wedding ceremony. It is amazing how poetry’s play of words effectively translates the heart’s language. This is basically the reason why poetry reading is a standard activity in wedding activities. Poetry has often been used as part of wedding vows, activity programs, ceremonial weddings, speeches, and toasts.


There are limitless selections of wedding poetry you can choose from for your wedding day. You can just grab some snippets from a longer poem or get a shorter one and entirely use it with modifications. Popular wedding poetry is written by George Sand, Thomas Moore, Kahlil Gibran, or Shakespeare. There are other contemporary writers having the same passion that is eminent in traditional poetry. Just by surfing on the internet, you can find poetry that can be used for wedding ceremonies and is submitted by ordinary people. These contributors are simply inspired by love and their poems are very well written too.


Looking for a poetry provider is not a hard job. You can ask your wedding coordinator or even the head of your clergy for recommendations. You might even have a friend or a family member who can write really well. Professional wedding poem providers may charge as high as a hundred dollars.


Compare prices and sample works of at least three vendors. This way you can weigh your options and select the best vendor at a reasonable price. Pick the one you are comfortable dealing with. Give the provider ample time to complete the poem, a good one would take time. Be sure to order around six months or so before the wedding.


In personalizing poetry consider the type of ceremony you will be having. A formal event might need elegant and romantic poems while you can add on some humor if it is an informal one. Poems used in wedding toasts must definitely have a lighter note to them. Take note of the mood that you wanted to project. It is important to know your guests and the person who would read the poem.


Poetry along with a good musical background can truly set that romantic atmosphere in any wedding. Through poetry reading, you can express your deepest emotions of love and hope. You can either read your chosen prime poetry during the ceremony itself or during the reception.


Tell everyone of your joy and contentment of finding your true love by scribbling wedding poetry on invitations. Another option will be to print out a line or two of your favorite poem on your wedding souvenir. Poetry verses can come along with your photograph, the celebrant’s name, the date of your wedding, and your message.


Poetry compliments that romantic atmosphere in any wedding. It can surely add magic to your wedding day. A well-rehearsed and well-written poetry can make your partner’s feet weak and make your heart jump a mile. Nothing can truly beat something that comes from the heart.
