Imagine Sardinian sea and white sand beaches. Your feet moving on warm sand when you are walking down the aisle with flowers in your hair… STOP! This is not only YOUR wedding! All your family wants to partecipate and contribute in making your Big Day special! Let them be part of it:
You find here some readings you can use during your Wedding Venue:
You have known each other from the first glance of acquaintance to this point of commitment.
At some point, you decided to marry.
From that moment of yes, to this moment of yes,
indeed, you have been making commitments in an informal way.
All of those conversations that were held in a car, or over a meal, or during long walks –
All those conversations that began with, ‘When we’re married,” and continued with
“I will” and “you will” and “we will” –
All those late night talks that included “someday” and “somehow” and maybe”
and all those promises that are unspoken matters of the heart…
All these common things, and more, are the real process of a wedding.
The symbolic vows that you are about to make are a way of saying to one another,
“You know all those things that we’ve promised, and hoped, and dreamed
– well, I meant it all, every word.”
Look at one another and remember this moment in time.
Before this moment you have been many things to one another – acquaintance, friend,
companion, lover, dancing partner, even teacher,
for you have learned much from one another these past few years.
Now you shall say a few words that will take you across a threshold of life,
and things between you will never quite be the same.
For after these vows you shall say to the world –
“This is my husband.”
“This is my wife.”
THIS MARRIAGE – Ode 2667
May these vows and this marriage be blessed.
May it be sweet milk, this marriage, like wine and halvah.
May this marriage offer fruit and shade like the date palm.
May this marriage be full of laughter, our every day a day in paradise.
May this marriage be a sign of compassion, a seal of happiness here and hereafter.
May this marriage have a fair face and a good name, an omen as welcome as the moon in a clear blue sky.
I am out of words to describe how spirit mingles in this marriage
…..and my favourite:
You deserve a love that wants you disheveled, with everything and all the reasons that wake you up in a haste, with everything and the demons that won’t let you sleep
You deserve a love that makes you feel secure, able to take on the world when it walks behind you, that feels your embraces are perfect for its skin.
You deserve a love that wants to dance with you, that goes to paradise every time it looks into your eyes and never gets tired of studying your expressions.
You deserve a love that listens when you sing, that supports you when you act like a fool, that respects your freedom; that accompanies you when you fly and isn’t afraid to fall.
You deserve a love that takes away the lies and brings you illusion, coffee, and poetry.
Oh, how romantic…Love and Poetry!
I always get these questions: “What is good to read during a wedding venue? Can I read I poem I created my myself? How long should a reading take?”….
