Umm, I don't want to offend anybody's tastes in poetry, but I think Dickinson would be somewhat inappropriate for a wedding. She was, after all, the "Belle of Amherst," an eccentric spinster and recluse. I don't know. There might be a light romantic poem in her vast collection, but I doubt it. William Carlos Williams wrote a good poem on marriage ("The Ivy Crown") and you might find a good one in Edmund Spencer's Amoretti and Epithalamion, a collection of love sonnets. My suggestion to you is to write something yourself! It will mean so much more to the bride and groom (or bride and bride, or groom and groom- whatever the case may be).
