5 Classic Wedding Bookmark Poems

There is a perfect wedding bookmark poem for every kind of couple approaching celebration day. Here is a short list of 5 classic poems for your wedding bookmarks that will have the whole ceremony crying tears of complete joy.

 1.  A Chinese Wedding Poem

"When it rains and snows in summer,
when heaven and earth mingle. Not till then will I part form you."

Perhaps no other wedding poem sums up that monumental idea of "forever" like this piece of writing by an unknown Chinese poet.

This piece creates immense visual imagery using the earth and nature as the language. "When the hills are all flat and the rivers are all dry." Even the imagery feels like forever. This is a perfect wedding poem for true soul mates dedicating to "forever."

2.  Nuptials

"River, be their teacher, that together they may turn."

This John Agard poem is a perfect wedding bookmark favor for couples who wish to emphasize learning together through life's journey. If you're looking for something in the old English style for a true romantic, classic sound during the reading, you can't beat stanzas like this: "Birdsong, be their mantra, that down the frail aisles of their days, their twilight hearts twitter morning, and their dreams prove branch enough." It sounds like it was written by the gods.

3.  Why Marriage?

"Because to the depths of me, I long to love one person."

The theme in this poem is one of trust and responsibility. It speaks to the certainty that marriage implies. It also speaks to what a person needs in love. The poet, Dena Acolatse writes about needing someone "to cuddle in the warmth of the night with someone who thanks God for me."

Wow. Good luck not sobbing through the ceremony.

4.  I Carry Your Heart With Me

"I fear no fate, for you are my fate. You are my world."

This is a powerfully beautiful line from E.E Cummings classic wedding poem.

No other wedding poem could sum up the idea of soul mates, or unconditional love, or feelings of unimaginable belonging like this poem. It's a popular choice because it is brilliant and sincere.

5.  Oh, The Places You'll Go

"Congratulations! Today is your day. You're off to great places! You're off and away."

Adorably, there is a trend that has become popular for wedding poems and it relates to childhood, and magic - Dr. Seuss!

Everyone relates and everyone always cries. It reminds the couple where they came from and what they've had to build and sacrifice to finally get to where they are together.

This poem speaks to the incredible possibility for a couple starting a life-long journey together.

Using a perfectly personalized bookmark poem to accent the joy of the marriage ceremony requires thought and consideration to make the right choice. The act of marriage itself is beautiful, and the perfect poem can accent that beauty and create a truly memorable and symbolic moment for the couple.
