Well, there’s a few that I like:

Sonnet 43 ("How do I love thee?) from the "Sonnets from the Portuguese" by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Rabbi ben Ezra (by Barrett Browning’s husband, Robert Browning)
Sonnet 18 by Shakespeare ("Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?")
A Red, Red Rose by Robert Burns

If you’re not big on the sonnets, google "ee cummings ceremony readings."  His poetry can be somewhat difficult to understand at times, but I love it 🙂

I also love "The Art of Marriage" by Wilferd Arlan Peterson, and second nicole3381 as far as "I Like You" is concerned!

I used "Blessing of the Hands," "I Like You" and "The Art of a Good Marriage" for my non-religious ceremony.

I haven’t picked anything, but I did see this reading on The Knot from  The Alchemist by Paolo Coelho and thought it was quite beautiful.

we built our ceremony around "the art of a good marriage" as listed above and used dorothy colgan’s "i promise" as our vows since they fit us right down to the struggles we always fight over.  Hope it helps.
