So our ceremony and reception are being held at my parents’ place… which happens to be out in the country with a very long drive way that winds through the woods. I already had visions of super cute directional signs and things like that to lead the way from the main road to the driveway, but now we’re thinking of having a few signs along the driveway itself. At first I was thinking of things like “Wedding ahead!” “You’re almost there!” but yesterday my parents’ started trying to think of some kind of poem or limerick that we could divide onto 4 or 5 signs along the driveway… kinda like these old Burma Shave roadside signs.
(With a few more words than these, of course.) BUT… I’m not very poetic and can’t think of anything. I know this may be a long shot, but have any of you come across any cute wedding-related limericks or short poems? Thanks a bunch! 🙂

I can be crafty with cute poems, but my mind isn’t working the greatest today..
but two short ideas I had are:
“find your way
you’re almost here
to share in love
and joy, and cheer!”
” the celebration
as two young people
here are wed”
Might get your mind jogging.. or other people’s! Good luck! That’s such a cute idea!!

This is a great idea… I WISH I had a driveway to use it on! So cute!
I’ll toss some around in my head & see if anything cute comes up while I”m working on spreadsheets this afternoon… (hey, my creativity has to go somewhere – and spreadsheets ain’t it.)

YAY, I knew there were cute/cheesy poetic people on here somewhere!
@cecullaton… those are already much better than anything we’ve come up with! thanks for the ideas, and please let me know if you think of any others!

You could use the ‘traditional’ vows –
‘to have and to hold’
to love and to cherish
for better or worse
in sickness and health

I love this idea and can’t wait to see the pictures and hear how it turned out!

okay, here’s what I came up with based on your ideas!
you’re almost there!
a good time is ahead
’cause Sara and Ian
are soon to be wed!
(and then the fifth sign would be some kind of a cute “welcome” sign)
HA, I love it! I’m envisioning them as something like this, kinda rustic-yet-adorable:

I LOVE this idea. We are having guests park at the entrance of the private property and they have to walk a little ways on the road throught the woods and that would be so cute to have on the side of the road! Thanks!!

I’m totally stealing this idea! (and if you don’t have a long driveway… how about road signs along the route, to keep your guests on their toes when turns and such are coming up?)
anyway.. Here’s two limericks i found/tweaked
“We’ve made promises, wishes, and plans
weren’t afraid to always hold hands
soon we’ll breathe a sigh
but try not to cry!
when we finaly swap wedding bands”
“In the summer he asked for her hand
and on her finger he slid a gold band
now with one little kiss
They’ll share wedded bliss
and then she can start to demand”
“In the many long years that did pass
her love for him none could surpass
But what he loves the most
something we’ll surely toast
Not her charm or her brains but her… cats!”
hahaha i love limericks.
