At my engagement party, I had the emcee of the event read out Shakespeare’s Sonnet 116 which I love. I thought about incorporating it into my wedding, perhaps as a reading or even in my invitation. I saw an invitation where they had a poem in between the lines of the invitation. Like this one:
Anyways, the poem is:
Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O, no! it is an ever-fixed mark,
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.
Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle’s compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me prov’d,
I never writ, nor no man ever lov’d.
