Check out the Say It At Your Wedding site, which has poetry for sale! You can be a member and pick a poem written by various contemporary poets for use in your wedding, and there are many other categories of poems available as well, like Christmas, comedy, Valentine’s day, Jewish themes, military, humor and friendship. Even get a poet to write a “special order” poem, just for you! A couple of my poems are in there as well, look up “Summer Becomes You”. It is an interesting concept and I wish them well.
