Wedding Readings

Most Bride And Grooms Want Their Weddings Unique

Special meaning can be given to your ceremony by including a wedding reading into your ceremony.

Many couples will choose passages from the Bible to be read at their wedding. Jewish weddings, for example often include passages from The Song of Solomon, which is noted as the most romantic chapter of the Bible. Chapter 1 starts with “Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine.”

Poetry is another way to describe love. There are numerous passages of romantic prose you may want to use for your reading. Some couples choose to write each other special passages they wish to read to each other when they are taking their vows.

There are several websites just for picking out wedding poems. Wedding readings from Shakespeare are popular. Sonnet 116 is known as the marriage sonnet.

Sonnet 116

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
admit impediments. Love is not love
which alters when it alteration finds,
or bends with the remover to remove:
Oh, no! It is an ever-fixed mark.
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
it is the star to every wandering bark,
whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.
Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
within his bending sickle’s compass come;
love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
but bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.
