Engagement Wishes in Poem Form


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.


As you walk along life’s path

Together hand in hand,

May God’s blessings be upon you,

In everything you plan.

Happy Engagement!

As you both look forward to the day that you are wed,

May your love be a reminder of the joy that lies ahead!

Congratulations on your engagement!


My heart to you is given,

Oh, do give yours to me;

We’ll lock them up together,

And throw away the key.


A future filled with happiness
A special wish for you
Days filled with joy and happiness
And all your dreams come true


All things do go a-courting,

In earth, or sea, or air,

God hath made nothing single

But thee in His world so fair.


To a very special couple

Who make a perfect pair

This brings a wish for happiness

In the future you will share.


No matter how far you stay from each other,

No matter how unknown you be to each other,

No matter how so ever you view one another,

No matter whatever plans you made for yourself.

Your individual fates were tied together by God himself

Who will now guide your life to eternal bliss.

May you both, hand in hand, keep moving towards a future already decided and so bright and beautiful.

Congratulations on your engagement!
