Poems for Children to read at your wedding. Below is a small selection and they can be really funny for them to read!

When it comes to wedding readings, involving children can add a heartwarming touch to your special day. But before you assign them the task, keep these tips in mind for a seamless performance.

Firstly, ensure that the child is willing to participate and their parents are supportive of the idea. It’s crucial to avoid any undue pressure that could cause nervousness and stage fright. The last thing you want is a child freezing up on the big day.

If the child agrees to read, consider having a bridesmaid or parent accompany them for added comfort. Additionally, keep in mind the child’s age and reading level to select appropriate words and avoid any complicated language. Remember, the shorter and simpler, the better!

Furthermore, ample practice is essential to ensure a flawless reading, so enlist the help of their family members to assist with preparation. Also, be mindful that some children may not be comfortable reading romantic or mushy love quotes, particularly pre-teens and teenagers.

Lastly, if you have a group of shy children, consider having them read in groups for added confidence and support. With these considerations, your wedding readings by children are sure to be a heart-melting moment for all.

My Advice


Poems for your Children to read at your wedding

Mum and Dad Get married Today,

I’d like to help them on their way.

So here’s some special advice from me,

To help them with our family.

Keep our house filled with laughter

Let’s have fun forever after.

Keep the drawer filled up with sweets,

And give us children lots of treats.

Make sure you spend time together,

To keep your happiness forever.

Make sure you spend lots on us,

And then us kids won’t make a fuss.

But the most important thing for you,

Is to show your love in all you do.

A caring word, a kiss, a touch,

And those family cuddles that mean so much.

No Mistake - by Martha Sims

I know that you were made for me

And I was made for you

A wise old owl up in a tree

Told me this was true

I asked him only yesterday

If I should marry you

He answered – -I can safely say

You’re not a twit to woo.’

Us Two - by A A Milne

Wherever I am, there’s always Pooh,

There’s always Pooh and Me.

“What would I do?” I said to Pooh,

“If it wasn’t for you,” and Pooh said: “True,

It isn’t much fun for One, but Two,

Can stick together, says Pooh, says he. “That’s how it is,” says Pooh.

May All Good Things Be Yours - by Joanna Fuchs

Your happiness begins

With your wonderful wedding day.

You’ll share everything together;

Through it all, your love will stay.


Congratulations to you,

As you begin your happy life.

May all good things be yours,

As new husband and new wife.

Oh the Places You'll go - by Dr Seuss


Today is your day.

You’re off to Great Places!

You’re off and away!

You have brains in your head.

You have feet in your shoes.

You can steer yourself

any direction you choose.

You’re on your own. And you know what you know.

And YOU are the couple who’ll decide where to go.”

Getting Married Means You'll Have - by Nicholas Gordon

Getting married means you’ll have

Someone’s hand to hold,

Even when you’re feeling sick,

Even when you’re old.


It means when you sit down to eat,

Someone will be there,

So you won’t have to tell your day

To an empty chair.


It means that when you need some help,

Someone will help out,

Someone always near to you

So you won’t have to shout.


But best of all is when it’s time

To turn out all the lights:

You won’t have to be alone

Those long and scary nights.


So even though you don’t have toys,

You don’t have to care:

Once you’re married you can be

Each other’s teddy bear.


Your Fairytale Wedding - by Anon

Once upon a time you two met

You’ve shared much love and laughter

May your marriage be a fairy tale

Happy ever after


I’m glad I’m in the fairy tale

And you are too I guess

Congratulations, King and Queen

From your fairy tale Princess


for a boy, the second verse could be


I’m glad I’m in the fairy tale

The future’s looking bright

Congratulations, King and Queen

From your loyal, courageous Knight

May This - by Anon

May this be the start of a happy new life

That’s full of special moments to share

May this be the first of your dreams come true

And of hope that will always be there…

May this be the start of a lifetime of trust

And of caring that’s just now begun…

May today be a day that you’ll always remember

The day when your hearts become one…
