Bridal Shower Poems
For an original toast to the bride
Bridal shower poems offer a beautiful way to toast the bride at her wedding shower.
A bridal shower is a girly romantic thing and poems are a lovely sentimental way to
add a special touch to the day.
Choose from classic romantic poets like the wonderful Odes from Keats or take snippets from romantic novels.
Are you the bridal shower organiser? Then get the bridesmaids together and write a joint poem. Base
it around a rhyming limerick to start with if experiencing writers block!
Here's an example:
Planning a Bridal Shower with Poems
When sending out invitations, ask guests to compose a wedding shower verse to accompany their
gift to the bride.
Some shower guests will be natural born poets whilst others will be terrified at having to put
pen to paper! There's no obligation but a few poems will help break the ice and give opportunity for strangers
to get to know one another at the party.
The mother of the bride can use a verse as an alternative to giving a speech and it's much easier
to read a poem from a lovingly prepared sheet than ad lib a wedding speech!
It's a great way to tell a bride about some of the more important aspects of being married whilst
also revelling in the excitement and happiness of such an occasion.
A personal favorite wedding shower poem is this one taken from the novel Captain Corelli's Mandolin - my husband's brother read it at the church on our wedding day and it brought tears to my eyes as it's so beautiful:
(Louis de Bernieres 1994)
