I’ve written short poems for “things” at our reception. What do you think – do they read well? Are they clear enough?
The first one is for these little sailboat tealight candle holders we will be using on tables – there will be two per table (tables of 6) as part of our centrepiece decoration. As we are having a candy buffet as our favours, these are just a sort of “bonus” to whomever wants to take them home afterwards – I’m sure the guests will be able to sort this out for themseves. To invite guests to take them home, I have put together the following:
As you can see, I bring you light
To shine on through this joyous night,
But once ship’s docked or candle’s blown,
Please pick me up and take me home!
The second poem is for a signing frame.. Not completely decided on whether this is what we’ll have, but I couldn’t help myself and wrote something anyway:
Please write a message and your name
On this awesome signing frame.
To bride and groom, it’d mean a heap
To have your words of love to keep!
I suppose, as a guest I would find poems too cheesy if they were overused, but I don’t think a smattering in places where they are needed ever hurt anybody… What do you think? Are there other things you will use/have poems for?

Love the poems! Just a few here and there should be fine!
