Funny Wedding Poems

A series of funny poems about engagements, weddings and marriages, with the occasional divorce to boot. The early poems in the series rejoice in the romance of marriage, but the tone changes mid-series and the later poems become darker and more cynical. There are a smattering of sexual references, but there's a whole section devoted to funny sex poems still to come.

On the Roof

Quite a number of people will have arrived here looking for funny wedding poems, suitable for livening up an otherwise dull best man's speech. On the Roof is a funny wedding poem, but no guarantee is offered as to its 'suitability for purpose'.

Emotional Wedding

A bit of a cheat, in that it's the setting rather than the subject of the poem that is a wedding. That said, it's a gloriously insightful poem about marriage or other long term relationships of marital equivalence.

Looking For A New Start

A marriage which appears to be on the rocks could perhaps be salvaged, but only with the right approach.

The Gift That Just Keeps Giving

I'm quite in favour of anachronistic institutions like marriage, but I must confess I was taken by this short poem which is cynical and saccharine in equal measure.

A Marriage Made in Heaven

A cute little poem about an interspecies marriage and its consequences.

I Wanna Hold Her Hand

A short humorous poem about the changes that marriage brings to the dynamics of a relationship...

Marriage Observation

…and a companion piece about how men treat their most treasured possessions.

Marriage Views

A poem which sounds like it's the translation of a traditional Eastern European folk saying, yet is hilariously funny - for women at least.

A Hand In Marriage

Love, Marriage, Sex and Death...   It's all foretold in the cards.


An inalienable truth about tensions in relationships is encapsulated in a short humorous poem.

Small Beer

A husband discovers after his marriage that his wife's approach to saving money is rather one sided.

Not Being Previous

A humorous poem about pre-marital sex. No more, no less!


An amusing poem about a young man pothering over asking his beloved for her hand in marriage. I must confess I was unfamiliar with the word pothering, but it means a state of dithering anxiety.

A New Broom

A slightly silly poem about two brooms and a shotgun wedding. It would be nonsense verse, except it has a slightly murky moral undercurrent.
