Use thank you for coming wedding poems from the bride and groom as a cute way to let your guests know how much they mean to you. Writing traditional heartfelt thank you cards is hard for many couples, so using a poem is a great way to change up this necessary but often difficult task.
Ways to Say Thank You in Poetry
You want your guests to know you appreciate their attendance at your wedding. Instead of just writing a little sentence at the bottom of your wedding program, you can use a poem to express your gratitude.
Couples with a religious background may want to incorporate their faith into the poem, while couples with a comical streak may want to infuse some humor into their verse. However you choose to write the poem, be sure it reflects your sincere appreciation to everyone for their attendance at your wedding.
Feel free to use or modify the sample poems to fit your thank you for coming wedding poem needs.

When to Say Thanks for Coming
While no thank you ever goes unappreciated, there are times where a poem fits best. For example, a generic poem in a thank you card for gifts can be considered impersonal. But using one as part of a wedding favor tag will make your guests smile, and you do not have to worry about being impersonal. Other times to use a wedding or marriage poem include:
- At the rehearsal dinner
- The back of the wedding program
- In a toast at the wedding reception
If you choose to write a poem in your thank you notes, be sure to include a personal message to the guests telling them how much you enjoyed their presence at the wedding and thanking them for any help or gift they may have given.
