  1. To Have And To Hold
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, ©2020

    To have and to hold
    Until you grow old
    These words on this day
    Have special meaning in every way.

    The day that you start a life together
    The two of you have never been better
    Your love and happiness we feel
    We can tell it is so real.

    We wish you much happiness
    And we are glad we could witness
    This special wedding day
    And the love you both display.

  2. To Be One With Each Other
    Poet: George Eliot

    What greater thing is there for two human souls than
    To feel that they are joined together to strengthen each other in all labor,
    To minister to each other in all sorrow,
    To share with each other in all gladness,
    To be one with each other in the silent unspoken memories

  3. Hand In Hand
    Poet: Edgar A. Guest

    All the way to age we'll go
    Hand in hand together;
    All the way to brows of snow
    Through every sort of weather.
    Rain or shine, blue sky or gray,
    Joy and sorrow sharing
    Hand in hand along the way
    We'll go bravely faring.

    All the way to sunset land
    We'll walk down together
    Side by side and hand in hand
    Held by Cupid''s tether.
    Once we danced in early May
    Steps we'll long remember;
    So we'll trip the miles away
    Even to December.

    Let the years go fleeting by!
    Gray old age shall find us
    Still recalling smile and sigh
    Long since left behind us.
    And though feeble we may grow,
    Worn by wind and weather,
    All the way to Age we'll go
    Hand in hand together.

  4. Marry My Best Friend
    Author Unknown

    This day I marry my best friend
    The one I laugh with as we share life’s wonderous zest,
    As we find new enjoyments and experience all that’s best.
    The one I live for because the world seems brighter
    As our happy times are better and our burdens feel much lighter.
    The one I love with every fiber of my soul.
    We used to feel vaguely incomplete, now together we are whole.

  5. Life's Different Changes
    Poet: Maria J Dodge

    Now, below this little prologue,
    You shall read my hopes for you.
    As together you shall travel
    All life's different changes through.

    To my friends, thus early starting
    On life's journey hand in hand.
    Shall I conjure up, to help them.
    Blessings from a fairy's wand.

    First, I wish them sweet contentment
    With whate'er to them is given;
    Strength to send their daily incense
    Upward to the courts of Heaven.

    Strength to bear each other's burdens
    In the turmoil and the strife
    That assails them as they travel
    Through the busy walks of life.

    Love to guide them in each duty,
    Hope to cheer them on their way:
    Thus they both shall grow in beauty,
    Finding peace day after day.

    And if little children, coming.
    Fill their home with music sweet.
    Is there more that Heaven could give them
    To make their happiness complete?

  6. The Vow
    Poet: Maureen Tolman Flannery

    What is a vow,
    but an intention
    spoken out before the world
    so that the world, in hearing,
    might take part
    in aspirations of the willing heart?

    In our coming here today
    to join and bless
    the joy of your becoming wed,
    may we enter in
    the truth of the words you’ve said,
    "I do."

  7. Thy Wedding Day
    Poet: Eloise A. Skimings

    To deck thee for thy bridal, on this thy wedding day,
    I bring you, with my best love, this beautiful bouquet.
    Altho' it's a stormy, wintry morn, the flow'rs are as gay
    As they'd be in the spring time, in merrie, merrie May.

  8. Wedding Bells
    Poet: Eloise A. Skimings

    Chime, merrily chime, your silvery peal
    Joins two hearts in one, with Love's mystic seal.
    Chime. merrily chime, the spring time has come
    With Hope's leaves and flowers to enwreath their home.

    Chime, merrily chime, the bridegroom and bride
    Are youthful and pure, their fond parents' pride.
    Chime, merrily chime, their future foretell.
    As happy and glad as the tones of your bell.

    Chime, merrily chime, and breathe as ye chime
    Orisons to heaven, to be echoed thro' time;
    Like sweet dulcet notes from Galilee's shore,
    With Christ at your feast to remain evermore.

  9. Today is the Beginning
    Poet: Patience Strong

    Today is the beginning
    In the years that lie ahead
    May you always share the love you have
    This day as you are wed

    I pray you'll each be one on whom
    The other can depend
    And may you share not only love,
    But be each others friend

    Some hopes may not be realised
    Some dreams may not come true
    But many of them will I know
    To bless the two of you

    Within the home that you will have
    I pray you'll always find
    Contentment, joy,security
    Good health and peace of mind.
