We’re using Union by Robert Fulgham.

I also like readings from The Velveteen Rabbit- the passage where the rabbit is talking about becoming real. Very moving.

This poem by Rumi (one of my favorites) is also very sweet:

Children Running Through
I used to be shy.
You made me sing.
I used to refuse things at the table.
Now I shout for more wine.
In somber dignity, I used to sit
on my mat and pray.
Now children run through
and make faces at me.

Those are beautiful miss powderpuff!  My future in laws (who are members of the clergy) lent us a copy of "Into the Garden, a wedding anthology"  edited by Robert Hass & Stephen Mitchell. There are many examples of poetry and prose related to weddings, as well as secular and sacred (plenty of bible verses) texts too.
