Funny wedding poems for sport mad groom / bride
It’s the day that we’ve waited for
The invites landing through the door
The family and friends can’t wait to see
Where our special day will be
Well, we can say that despite the myths
(Groom / Bride name) hasn’t got their mitts
On THEIR vision of a wedding day
(That involves their team playing away)
It’s a much more traditional affair, and we’d both love to see you there
And if ( name) is in their strip/kit
Let’s just say (partners name) will be over it
So when you want to know the theme and colours
Listen to (partner name) – not any others!
See you there!
Love, Bride and Groom Name
Wedding poems for a film-loving couple
Our love story is just like the silver screen,
A romance that’s pure, real, and clean.
We’ll live happily ever after, just like in the flicks,
A love story that’s timeless, one that sticks.
Our love is like a movie reel,
Full of drama, laughter, and zeal.
Our love story’s one for the ages,
Full of passion and romantic stages.
Our love is like a Hollywood blockbuster,
Full of action, adventure, and wonder.
Together, we’ll take on the world and win,
Our love story is a true tale of kin.
Our romance is like the perfect rom-com,
Full of laughter, love, and a happy outcome.
Our love story will go down in history,
As the greatest romance in all of our mystery.
With you by my side, life’s like a movie set,
Full of surprises, thrills, and a love we’ll never forget.
Our love story’s just like the ones on the big screen,
Full of passion, emotion, and a love that gleams.
As the credits roll and the curtains draw near,
We’ll stand hand in hand, filled with love and no fear.
Our love story’s like a movie that’ll never end,
A tale of love and devotion that will always blend.
Wedding poems for a book loving couple
What’s our love story? There are pages to leaf
In us, there’s a touch of Catherine and Heathcliff
We might not make a Darcy, Buttler or Jay
But our book will read another way.
We grew up reading classics, the trials and tribulations
The hero’s journey, the dashing prince and then the altercations
The drama and the romance and the cliffhangers and tears
So when it comes to marriage, both of us have zero fears
The hero always gets the girl, the girl she gets her way
And we can’t wait to prove this all – on our special day!
Wedding poems to write to a loved one
Special wedding poems from a mum to a daughter
My darling girl, today’s your moment
And believe me when I say
That you deserve the best, with nothing in your way
I wish you years of happiness
And days packed full of laughter
And that you always remember the moment of
Your happy ever after
So go ahead, enjoy the day
Make memories and then some
But know my love the amazing part is
The best is yet to come!
Special wedding poems from a mum to a son
My little boy grew up so fast
One day it was footballs and then when that passed
it was heroes and space and before I could tell –
It was time for my boy to love girls as well
And he picked the best one, she’s amazing, so dear
And your lives together will be amazing, it’s clerar
But I will always struggle in letting you go
So I will tell you all that I know
You make me so proud, a better person, I love you
There’s not a single person above you
You’re a man now, a great man, and your next big thing is:
To be a great husband (maybe one day, grand kids?)
My special boy, I wish you a lifetime
Of happiness, laughter, and sunshine
Special wedding poems from a dad to a daughter
Daughter/ NAME. it seems like yesterday
that I was wiping those tears away
From the first day at home to that bad day at school
In those tricky moments – I felt like a fool
I didn’t have the words, the right thing to say,
but believe me, I always thought of this day,
Of you being so happy, of glowing with life,
the knowing with time it would all turn out right
So go, be with (GROOM NAME) – he knows you are treasured – I wish you a lifetime of joy together
Your dad is still here, to hold you near,
whenever you need me,
Forever – my dear.
Special wedding poems from a dad to a son
Today’s a day I’m content to see,
How much you’ve grown so brilliantly,
My bones can’t explain what this means to me,
Every moment shared, led to this, you see.
I want you to know so crystal clear,
I’m proud of who you are, and know you’ll steer,
Forward with what you do, and what you hold dear,
Wishing you a lifetime of joy, my dear.
Wedding poems to ask for money
Want to ask for money but don’t want to sound too cheeky? Enter the saviour of the day – a wedding poem to ask for money. So British and oh so necessary.
If you add a poem to your wedding card, you can get money without feeling like you’re asking grandma for a wire transfer of her life savings. It also means without sounding like you’re demanding, you get what you really need (the moolah) AND help put guests’ minds at ease. From a waste point of view, this also ensures you don’t end up with 6 air fryers and 16 spoon sets heading to landfill.
Seems like years ago we moved in together,
And even then we knew it was forever.
We slowly bought all the pots and the pans
The gadgets and gizmos – in summer, the fans.
We treasured them all (just like each other)
So when asked for gifts we’ve been saying ‘don’t bother!’
Just bring yourselves to our day, have fun
But if you must give, then some cash is the one
We’d love to accept and would thank you dearly
(even though we just want you there – yes really!)
We could spend it on an adventure or two
A rainy day –
or hopefully, with you!
Heartfelt and upbeat poem
We have been asked about our list
For a special celebratory gift
The truth is, we can only suggest
That if you must, then cash is best
We simply have everything to hand
To make our house simply grand.
We know you’d rather give us a ‘thing’
So please know that the feeling the money will bring
A sprinkle of joy, a dash of cheer
And a grin from us both from ear to ear
And when we need to buy something new
Rest assured, we’ll be thinking of you!
When we’ve been asked
(or set ourselves the task)
Of seeking gifts for our wedding list…
We’ve quickly found – we should be in bliss.
We have everything a couple could need
Air fryers, blankets and even plant seeds.
Our house is a home – but we know that’s a fuss-
When you want to give something special to us.
The truth is cash wouldn’t make us blue
(‘though we just want to spend our day with you
A small token would go a long way
To help us save for a rainy day
So don’t feel you need to
It’s not at all expected
But a few pounds, pence or euros –
Would be kindly accepted!
Weddings cost a lot for all the guests
The parties, the hotel, then dressing your best
We know the feeling of spending a day
In a department store haze – going this and that way
Deciding between fork sets or cups
And feeling neither looks all that much.
There’s nothing we need but your presence and joy
But if you must, then don’t choose a toy.
A couple of quid or a simple few notes
So we can buy a pint (or save for a goat! )
Whatever the future holds, you can help
And we’ll save your weekend from department store hell!
Funny and heartfelt poem
We wish we could say that we need an air fryer
A spiralizer, a cup set, or even a drier.
The fact is we’ve been living together
And cobbled our items to make something treasured
Our house became a home – and now with a wedding
We don’t need much – so where is this heading?
We know many like to give a gift
But the truth is that we simply have no list.
A few pounds instead would be so well used
And no – NAME – doesn’t mean on shoes!
To take that dream trip, to fix up that car
Money will help us go away far.
We’ll leave it with you – but know you are treasured
And we can’t wait to spend our day all together!
Funny poem if you’re scared you sound cheeky
A wedding list is hard to write
Not like Christmas (mum and dad always got a fright)
We don’t want to sound cheeky, it doesn’t seem right
To detail things that you should go out and buy!
We do believe honesty is best
So when it comes to what we need, money stands the test
It could go on our dream vacation
A holiday of memories to mark the occasion
We’ll bore you with all the piccies
(You MUST come round for tea and biccies!)
We thank you so much for thinking of us
And we can’t wait for a day and an evening of fun!
Funny poem from guests’ POV
The wedding guest has an impossible task
Getting a gift that’s right – without ask
Spoiling the couple with something that’s right
For the pair who have been together for hundreds of nights
You can’t get the fork sets, a mug or a kettle
And it seems rude to just grab the mettle
And ask what they’d like( they didn’t write a list )
And now you scroll the internet aimlessly – oh fizz.
Luckily YOUR engaged pair took pity
They asked for money – AND they wrote a short ditty!
No boring shopping trips, no wrapping that’s hard
Just a few pound coins popped into a card
And you’ll never know how happy they got
When they added it up and realised with shock
They had just enough to go far away
AND they’d had the most perfect day!
