A Wedding Prayer

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 other’s friend.

Some hopes may not be realized,
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.


from the Book of Common Prayer

Give them wisdom and devotion in the ordering of their common life that each may be to the other a strength in need, a counselor in perplexity, a comfort in sorrow, and a companion in joy. Amen


I Cross My Heart

(George Strait, music and words by Steve Doroff and Eric Kaz)

Our love is unconditional, we knew it from the start.
I see it in your eyes, you can feel it from my heart.
From here on after let’s stay the way we are right now,
And share all the love and laughter
That a lifetime will allow.

I cross my heart and promise to
Give all I’ve got to give to make all your dreams come true.
In all the world you’ll never find a love as true as mine.

You will always be the miracle that makes my life complete,
And as long as there’s a breath in me, I’ll make yours just as sweet.
As we look into the future, it’s as far as we can see,
So let’s make each tomorrow be the best that it can be.

I cross my heart and promise to
Give all I’ve got to give to make all your dreams come true.
In all the world you’ll never find a love as true as mine.

And if along the way we find a day it starts to storm,
You’ve got the promise of my love to keep you warm.
In all the world you’ll never find a love as true as mine,
A love as true as mine.


For my Dad with all my Love…

Your little girl is all grown up
and has found a love so true,
but a special place in my heart
will always belong to you.


Real Life Wedding Vows…

Do you Chris, promise to always agree with Suzanne, in rightness or in wrongness, forsaking all logic, thus saving a fortune in marriage counseling and legal fees, for as long as you both shall live?


Wedding Prayer

We have shared your life and love
And now we send you on
Knowing that the love you’ve promised here
Will keep you strong.

Share with us if ever
There is something we can do.
Know that you are loved,
And love will always be our prayer for you!


I Thee Wed

I cannot turn my back just now,
I sense your need of me.
I am here.
I married you
Not only for the good that I can take
But for all that I can give.
I understand.
I accept.
I thee wed.


To the Bride and Groom

(Grace Mandry)

May friends and family be your anchor
May contentment always reign
May your love be everlasting
And your glass filled with champagne


Apache Wedding Prayer

Now you will feel no rain, for each
of you will be shelter to the other.

Now you will feel no cold, for each
of you will be warmth to the other.

Now there is no more loneliness, for each
of you will be companion to the other.

Now you are two persons,
But there is only one life before you.

Go now to your dwelling place
To enter into the days of your togetherness

And may your days be good
and long upon the earth.

Poem for Seed Packet Wedding Favors

These seed we give are a symbol of our love.
Planted like our vows grown with care and love .
Watch them grow as the years go by.
Nurtured with Gods watchful eyes and his unending love.


The Bride, The Bridegroom and the Bubbles

(Grace Mandry, used with permission from the author)

Why do we blow bubbles to wish them well?
Their existence is brief–as is their farewell
Fragile, translucent, round rainbows that fly
A touch, and they’re gone in the blink of an eye
Perhaps in their transience a lesson is learned
A lifetime of love must be nurtured and earned
Passion is fleeting, but compassion sustains
Beauty may vanish, but devotion remains.


The Groom and the Garter

(Grace Mandry, used with permission from the author)

The elegant bridegroom, dignified and refined
With pride and delight weds his sweet valentine
As tradition precludes all pretense and surprise
The bride’s lacy garter is his promised prize
With a flourish he flings it while the bachelors wait
When the garter is captured, then they all celebrate


Hankie Baby Bonnet

I made one for my granddaughter. I used a decorative handkerchief that had been my mother-in-law’s. It had very fine crocheted lace around the edges. I folded the handkerchief almost in half (the lace formed two rows that framed the baby’s face. The fold was plain and I ran a gathering stitch on the fold and pulled it tight, forming a circle, tied the thread in a knot. I then made ribbon rosette for either side of the front of the bonnet and had ribbon ties sewed under the rosettes. Hope these directions are clear enough. I have seen bonnets with more decorations which you could do also.

Here is the poem that goes with the Hankie Baby Bonnet:

I’m just a little hankie, as square as square can be,
but with a stitch or two, they make a bonnet out of me.
I’ll be worn from the hospital, or on Christening Day,
Then, I’ll be neatly pressed and carefully put away.
Then on the Wedding Day, as I’ve always been told,
Every well-dressed bride must have something old.
So what would be more fitting than to find little old me,
With a few stitches snipped, and a Wedding hankie I’ll be!
And if perchance it is a boy, some day he’ll surely wed,
So to his Bride he can present the hankie once worn on his head.

For A SPECIAL BABY

For a special baby
Loving thoughts and nimble hands
Created this little bonnet
Of fine lace and ribbon bands.At first it was a handkerchief
But with some stitches small
A bonnet was made for downy head
To be admired by all.
Mother will carefully store it
Gently pack it away
After years she’ll take it out
Before her daughter’s wedding day.She’ll snip the tiny stitches
Place it in her daughter’s hand
To carry, as a hanky, down the aisle
And receive her wedding band.

(For baby boy Handkerchief baby bonnet)

Mother’s son will find good use
For the square, when he’s a young man
He’ll give it to his sweetheart
When he asks her for her hand.


Life is to Share

A silver tea set, shining bright,
Romantic in the candle light.
Appliances costly, copper and brass,
Clothes of linen, China and glass.
These are gifts, lovely and rare,
Showered on the bridal pair.

But I would give with all wedding bands,
The joy of laboring with loving hands.
The pleasure that comes with painting a chair,
And the love that grows with the chores we share.
If I had my way, I’d make it a law,
Each bride gets a paintbrush,
Each groom a saw!


Wedding Dreams

I dreamed of a wedding of elaborate elegance,
A church filled with family and friends.
I asked him what kind of a wedding he wished for,
He said one that would make me his wife.

A cloudy day is no match for a sunny disposition. – William Arthur Ward

A stale article, if you dip it in a good, warm, sunny smile, will go off better than a fresh one that you’ve scowled upon.  – Nathaniel Hawthorne

American-style iced tea is the perfect drink for a hot, sunny day. It’s never really caught on in the UK, probably because the last time we had a hot, sunny day was back in 1957.  –  Tom Holt

But I was never, you know, when I see some kids today who are close to their parents, close to their friends… I think it’s simply wonderful. I was not a happy kid. Back in those days, I remember the sick, gray days were better. Because when it was sunny I’d feel worse. – Mike Wallace

I do like the ocean wave, actually. I’m born under the sign of Cancer – the sign of the crab – so I like coastal areas and sunny beaches and such – although not the wide-open and deep seas. Anjelica Huston

I think golf is a waste of time and a waste of a sunny afternoon. I also stink at it. I have never found anything, including divorce and a sexual harassment suit, more frustrating. –  Jay Mohr

With optimism, you look upon the sunny side of things. People say, ‘Studs, you’re an optimist.’ I never said I was an optimist. I have hope because what’s the alternative to hope? Despair? If you have despair, you might as well put your head in the oven.

To My Bride

To my bride, I give you my heart,
Sharing love each day, from the very start.

To my bride, I give you my kiss,
Filling each day with joy and bliss.

To my bride, I give you my being,
To love, to play, to work and to sing.

To my bride, I give you my mind,
Learning each day to be more kind.

To my bride, I give you my soul,
Growing together to be more whole.

To my bride, I give you my life,
Rejoicing each day that you are my wife.


The Countdown

(Marlys Bradley)

Finger by finger, she counted
The days until
Her birthday cake,
The start of school,
The Christmas tree
And Grandma’s house.
Now finger-by-finger,
She dons white gloves
And reaches for a veil.The music starts,
Our fingers touch and
I count myself blessed.

Wedding Wish for My Daughter

Beautiful child who lay in my arms
Was it only yesterday?
Diapers to pigtails, laughter and love
Sweeping the years away.
Today your life will join as one
With the man you will love forever.
And I know it is right . . .
for I’ve seen the joy
That the two of you share together.
Time’s come . . . you’re a woman.
I must say goodbye
Let me hold you and kiss your soft curls
On my face is a smile, but
There are tears in my heart
For you are still my little girl.


We Gave Her Dawn

(Max Ellison)

Who gives this woman to be wed?
Her Mother and I.
We gave her dawn.
We gave her grace.
We stamped our image on her face.
We gave her books,
And through the years,
Calmed her early childhood fears.
We gave her faith.
We gave her prayer.
She walked our road.
She climbed our stairs.
And now in solemn troth we swear,
We cannot give.
We only share.


Down the Aisle in Style

(Grace Mandry)

Will it be silk, chiffon or satin
Knee length, floor length, or with a long train?
Will it boast bows and beads and sequins
Or will it be unadorned and plain?
Will she appear in a gossamer veil
Beneath a tiara, crown or wreath?
Will she prefer a bouffant gown
Or will she select a stately sheath?
Daily dilemmas invade each hour
Yet time is resolute in its flight.
For today is the day when she will marry
In her perfect gown of snowy white.


The Home She Leaves

(Grace Mandry)

Ribbons and flowers–bows and lace
White paper bells, secured in place
Adorn the home wherein she learned
Of right and wrong and trust that’s earned.
But today she bids this home farewell
To share another, where she’ll dwell
With her true love, in joy and laughter
As they live ‘Happily Ever After’.


For Dad with all my Love…

Your little girl is all grown up
and has found a love so true,
but a special place in my heart
will always belong to you.


For Mom with all my Love . . .

Only a Mother is truly aware
of her daughter’s needs, her dreams, her cares;
and is always supportive from beginning to end . . .
I’m thankful you are my mother, my friend.


The Bridal Bouquet

(Grace Mandry, used with permission from the author)

Flowers arranged in a fragrant bouquet
For the happy bride on her Wedding Day
She tosses the blooms to a fortunate miss
Hoping she, too, will find marital bliss


Then He Kissed Me

(The Crystals)

Well, he walked up to me and he asked me if I wanted to dance.
He looked kinda nice and so I said I might take a chance.
When he danced he held me tight
And when he walked me home that night
All the stars were shining bright
And then he kissed me.

Each time I saw him I couldn’t wait to see him again.
I wanted to let him know that he was more than a friend.
I didn’t know just what to do
So I whispered I love you
And he said that he loved me too
And then he kissed me.

He kissed me in a way that I’ve never been kissed before,
He kissed me in a way that I wanna be kissed forever more.

I knew that he was mine so I gave him all the love that I had
And one day he took me home to meet his mom and his dad.
Then he asked me to be his bride
And always be right by his side.
I felt so happy I almost cried
And then he kissed me.


Butterfly Kisses

(Bob Carlisle)

There’s two things I know for sure.
She was sent here from heaven,
and she’s daddy’s little girl.
As I drop to my knees by her bed at night,
She talks to Jesus, and I close my eyes.
And I thank God for all of the joy in my life,
but most of all, for . . .
Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer.

Stickin’ little white flowers all up in her hair.
“Walk beside the pony, Daddy, it’s my first ride.”
“I know the cake looks funny, Daddy, but I sure tried.”
Oh with all that I’ve done wrong,
I must have done something right
To deserve a hug every morning,
And butterfly kisses at night.

Sweet sixteen today,
She’s looking like her Momma a little more every day.
one part woman, the other part girl.
to perfume and makeup, form ribbons and curls.
Trying her wings out in a great big world.
But I remember . . .
Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer.

Stickin’ little white flowers all up in her hair.
“you know how much I love you Daddy,
but if you don’t mind,
I’m only going to kiss you
on the cheek this time.”
With all that I’ve done wrong, I
must have done something right.
To deserve her love every morning, and
butterfly kisses at night.

All the precious time Like the wind,
the years go by Precious butterfly
Spread your wings and fly
She’ll Change her name today.
She’ll make a promise,
and I’ll give her away.

Standing in the bride room just staring at her,
she asked me what I’m thinking,
and I just said I’m not sure,
I just feel like I’m losing my baby girl.”
Then she leaned over and gave me . . .
Butterfly kisses, with her momma there
Stickin’ little white flowers all up in her hair

“Walk me down the aisle daddy,
It’s just about time.”
“Does my wedding dress look pretty, Daddy?”
“Daddy don’t cry.”
With all that I’ve done wrong,
I must have done something right
To deserve her love every morning, and
butterfly kisses . . .

I couldn’t ask God for more, man,
This is what love is
I know I have to let her go,
But I’ll always remember
Every hug in the morning, and
Butterfly kisses . . .


The Perfect Dress

The wedding day was fast approaching. Everything was ready and nothing could dampen Jennifer’s excitement, not even her parents’ nasty divorce. Her mother, Sheila, finally found the PERFECT dress to wear and would be the best-dressed mother of the bride EVER!
A week later, Jennifer was horrified to learn her new young stepmother, Barbie, had purchased the same dress. She asked Barbie to exchange the dress, but Barbie refused, “Absolutely not! I’m going to wear this dress. I’ll look like a million in it.”
Jennifer told her mother, who graciously replied, “Never mind dear, I’ll get another dress, after all it’s YOUR special day, not hers.”
Two weeks later, another dress was finally found. When they stopped for lunch, Jennifer asked her mother, “What are you going to do with the first dress? Maybe you should return it. You don’t have any place to wear it.”
Sheila grinned and replied, “Of course I do, dear! I’m wearing it to the rehearsal dinner!”

Quotes for my baby Girl

  • Family is just accident…They don’t mean to get on your nerves. They don’t even mean to be your family, they just are. (Marsha Norman)

  • The love in our family flows strong and deep,
    leaving us memories to treasure and keep
  • The love of a family makes life beautiful.
  • No person is ever alone–who is a member of a family.
  • Only in a world of love can we unfold and bloom.
  • Our family is a circle of Love and strength.
    With every birth and every union, the circle grows.
    Every joy shared adds more love.
    Every crisis faced together makes the circle stronger.
  • You may not be one of those people whose family is always there for you. It may seem odd, but people you aren’t related to can take care of you, and love you and teach you to trust people again. Families aren’t always biological.

The Family Quilt

Our family quilt was started
generations in the past.
Designed with love,
its pattern’s rich
in values that will last.
Each person sews another square
of memories that endure,
While challenges add strength
that makes our family life secure.
And stitching it together
threads of closeness,
warmth, and caring
Make it cozy and more comforting
with every year of sharing.

Family Lasts Forever

F is for Familiar . . .
there is no place like home.
A is for always welcome,
no matter how far you roam.
M is for memories,
more cherished
each passing day.
I is for inspiration
given along the way.
L is for Love you feel
each time you get together.
Y is for the years to come,
for family lasts forever.


Family Ties

(Virginia Moore)

Family ties are precious things,
Woven through the years,
Of memories of togetherness,
Of laughter, love and tears.

Family ties are cherished things,
Forged in childhood days,
By love of parents, deep and true,
And sweet familiar ways.

Family ties are treasured things,
And far though we may roam,
The tender bonds with those we love,
Still pull our hearts toward home.

My Family

(Joan Walsh Anglund, All About My Family)

A family is the place we start
It is our strength,
Our home our heart.
So to my family I give praise
And keep this record of all our days.

The Family

(Erma Bombeck)

We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another’s desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together.


Family

(Mary Scott)

Our family is a circle of
strength and love,
With every birth
and every union,
the circle grows.
Every crisis faced together
makes the circle stronger.
Every joy shared
adds more love.

A Family is Special

There’s nothing more special
than being a part
of a family that listens
and comforts and cares,
And nothing more special
or dear to the heart
than the feelings of love
that a family shares.


The Family Tree

(Jim Wolf)

One tree outlives the mighty oak
Because it’s made of special folk,
Through generations changing form,
Providing shelter from life’s storm.

Our parents’ parents and before,
Who may have lived on distant shores,
They root our lives in memories;
We’re nourished by their histories.

A sturdy trunk that lends support
And gives us care of every sort–
The fathers, mothers, uncles, aunts,
Who nurture us like tender plants.

The children, branching toward the sky,
Have brand new dreams and deeds to try.
And babies, buds that seem so small,
Will flower so the tree grows tall.

Family

(by Glenda Campbell)

There’s a special kind of closeness
that only families know,
That begins with childhood trust
and deepens as you grow.

There’s a special kind of happiness
in sharing little things,
The laughter, smiles, and quiet talks
that daily living brings.

There’s a special kind of comfort
in knowing your family’s there,
To back you up, to cheer you up
to understand and care.

Of all the treasures life may bring,
your family means the most,
And whether near or far apart,
That love will hold you close.

Mirror Page Idea

“Family faces are magic mirrors. Looking at people who belong to us, we see the past, present and future.” (Gail Lumet Buckly)
Use a small flat mirror. Center the mirror on the page and add pictures of the grandparents. When you and your children look at the page you could look at the pictures of the great grandparents and see if you see any resemblance.
This idea and quote could also be used on a page of photos showing family resemblances–with or without the mirror.  Group photos of various family members of any generation that happen to look alike. Usually you will find the most resemblance if you look at baby pictures or photos of early teens.
