Poems for a Wedding Release

<Back to Weddings

For many centuries,
the White Dove has been an emblem
of Peace, Love and New Beginnings.

As a symbolic gesture,
to seal their marriage vows,
(COUPLES NAMES) are now going to release
these two pure white birds.

The Doves will fly upwards
and circle above us a few times,
then fly home together, as a pair.

This symbolizes our newly-wed couple
setting off on their journey in life together,
in harmony.

(COUPLES NAMES), we wish for you,
that your life together will be long, rich and rewarding.

May your marriage carry with it
all the wonderful qualities
that the White Dove represents.


As you begin your new journey as husband and wife,
let this pair of doves symbolize the love and devotion
that will grow through your years together.

May the memory of these two creatures,
who bond together for life,
serve as inspiration as you both go forth --
traveling a path started by two,
and combining as one
with a never ending love for one another.


White doves are the symbol of Love, Peace and Hope. 

They pair for life, and at the end of each day
They return to the same home for the night.

As COUPLES NAMES release these doves,
We ask you, their family and friends,
To witness this very symbolic gesture,
Which heralds the beginning of their new life together.

COUPLES NAMES we wish you love,
That, like the doves, continues to soar.
We wish you peace as you work together
To develop a home
And we join in your hope for a long and happy marriage.



The Native Americans have passed down the legend of the white dove...

The Legend of the Doves

Once the Lord of Heaven chose two doves, both young and fair
and told them of a very special journey they would share.

"Go now upon the earth and seek two hearts where you may dwell,
and there I shall surely come and make my home with
you as well. We'll join the two and make them one. A Husband and a Wife,
my spirit will endow their love with everlasting life."

Today the Doves still bring the sacred promise from above,
to those whose hearts are open to the miracle of love.

Together

Together you will fly away
And start your life anew
On this very special day
Made for the two of you

The sun will dance upon your wings
And from the heavens above
All the Angels start to sing
For your never ending love



Eyes

Our eyes met, my heart just knew
my soul was meant for only you
you share my goals, my dreams,
my fears we'll send a prayer of thanks to God above,
a symbol of our faith,
the white winged dove.
As they soar overhead then fly away
all will remember our wedding day



TWO

Two hands to hold onto forever
Two arms to be embraced by eternally
Two eyes to gaze into for always
Two lips to kiss so passionately
Two souls fused by commitment
Two lives entertwined by God
Two hearts joined by the purest love.

May the two doves you release today
symbolize the beauty of the life you will
share together as husband and wife.
We wish you all the best, (COUPLES NAMES),
God Bless You!

God bestowed upon these doves. Keeping them together for life,
may the doves released today, representing (COUPLES NAMES)

Wedding Doves

Releasing wedding doves dates back many centuries,
and are the perfect symbol of matrimony as doves mate for life.

They both build their nest. Take turns sitting their eggs.
Feed and nurture their young. The first doves released
are symbolic of the couple beginning their lives together.
As they unite above, additional doves are released
to symbolize our thoughts, prayers and well wishes
as they begin their journey together!


Poem – Winged Flight

From today this winged love begins its flight
across the skies of time.
It will fly above the bounds of earth
and beyond the edge of now,
for when hearts and minds come
together as one,
the union takes mere mortals
to places never been.

The flight of love will allow you to 
challenge your wildest dreams.
Side by side you will explore the
endless possibilities of your shared world
And your journey will soar and fly
with bearings sound and direction true.

May your winds be favorable
and your skies remain clear
as you guide your shared flight
towards the rising sun, for in the dawn of each new day
you will find the light to guide your way.

May you enjoy your journey
along the way, and may you feel
the gentle guiding presence of others
who share the skies with you,
the place of freedom,
adventure and endless hope.



Family poem

Just as doves are a symbol of love, peace and fidelity,
these doves released today signify
two families joining together as one.

May you both be blessed with the same love,
which God bestowed upon these doves,
keeping them together for life.

May the doves released today, representing
(COUPLES NAMES),
be a reminder of the strength found in love
and in growth, as you become one in the
beginning of your new lives together.

May the three doves represent, (CHILDREN), _______, _______.
The white of their wings soaring overhead
represent the purity of your children's innocence.
As the doves come together on their journey home,
may the five of you join together, for there
is immeasurable strength in a family.



On Wings of Doves

On the wings of these white doves,
Our hopes and dreams will fly.
Join together, head for home,
Sail across the sky.



The Dream Merchant

Hear the sound the white wings make,
and feel the love in your heart you take.

Our hearts are one our time is free,
so much i love you and you love me.

You gave me your heart and you have mine, and now we are one forever in time.

Hold me tight and feel my love,
as we watch the flight of doves above.

We will always be one in our hearts forever, our love strong never to sever.

So lets hold hands and walk in the sun,
As for us-- life has just begun.



Dove Poem

Two doves meeting in the sky
Two loves hand in hand, eye to eye
Two parts of a loving whole
Two hearts and a single soul

Two stars shining big and bright
Two fires bringing warmth and light
Two songs played in perfect tune
Two flowers growing into bloom

Two Doves gliding in the air
Two loves free without a care
Two parts of a loving whole
Two hearts and a single soul
