I don’t know if it is the season or just a new trend as promoted by wedding experts like “Offbeat Bride” of “Wedding Chicks,” but I have had an unusually great number of couples coming to me with humorous wedding readings for their ceremony script.  The following, simply entitled “Wedding Day,” recognizes the sometimes simple aspects of married life, beyond the pomp and circumstances of the wedding festivities.  Enjoy the simple joys–and challenges–of a new partnership in life:

The day of your wedding
Is a time to reflect
On the things you can hope for
And the things to expect.
You could hope for great riches
Huge bundles of cash
But then lose it all
In a Stock Market crash
Or you could hope for
A life of great ease
With the time and the money
To do as you please
But it’s better to hope for
The good things in life
Like a long happy life
As husband and wife
Like the smile and the kiss
As you walk through the door
And the baby that wakes you
At a quarter to four
And a life of variety
With sunshine and rain
And Frosties for breakfast
Instead of champagne
Expect times of anger
The occasional huff
Because no one annoys you
Like the on that you love
But don’t look for problems
That the future may bring
Just to love and be loved is a wonderful thing
Life’s not all plain sailing
Not always a ball
But I know you’ll be happy
Because love conquers all.
