    Why not have a word with her teacher? You could ask her to assist her in writing something personal xx

    honeybee2....thank you. i like this one (below) i could change the wording here and there.

    WEDDINGS
    If you go to a wedding, here’s what it means
    No one wears trainers and no one wears jeans
    Your best new clothes are all that you wear
    And everyone in your whole family is there
    Even some cousins that you’ve never known
    And the grown-ups all say “Oh, how much you have grown!”
    So everyone’s sitting in one big room
    (except Sally and Richard, the bridge and groom)
    Then all of a sudden things quieten down
    And music starts playing and people turn round
    And really slowly, Sally walks in
    And she’s prettier now than she’s ever been.
    She’s a bridge and she’s really great looking today
    (when normally she looks just kind of okay)
    She walks in and stands with her dad for a while
    As Richard her boyfriend, awaits in the aisle
    His hair is all combed and he’s wearing a tie
    And then Sally’s mum starts to sniffle and cry.
    And now it comes time for the “get-married” part
    The Registrar says that we’re ready to start
    So she talks and she talks about serious things
    Then their friend Chris steps up holding two rings
    He gives one to the groom and the other to the bride
    Then his girlfriend, Janaki pulls him aside.
    Then Sally and Richard kind of look at each other
    And another big sniffle comes from Sally’s mother
    And Sally and Richard put on the wedding rings
    And they talk and they promise each other some things
    They promise that they’ll love each other a lot
    And help one another no matter what
    And be with each other the rest of their life
    Then the Registrar says “Now you are husband and wife”.
    Then everyone’s in such a big happy mood
    And you go to a party with very much food
    Where you dance with some grown-ups and drink some wine
    And then do a conga-dance in one long line
    ‘till Sally and Richard drive off in a car
    and everyone’s thinking how happy they are
    So we all yell goodbye and throw handfuls of rice
    Then the whole thing is over. Weddings are nice!

    We went to a wedding last year and someone read "The Owl and The Pussycat" It was lovely and so playful & perfect :)

    The Owl And The Pussy-Cat by Edward Lear
    I
    The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
    In a beautiful pea green boat,
    They took some honey, and plenty of money,
    Wrapped up in a five pound note.
    The Owl looked up to the stars above,
    And sang to a small guitar,
    'O lovely Pussy! O Pussy my love,
    What a beautiful Pussy you are,
    You are,
    You are!
    What a beautiful Pussy you are!'

    II
    Pussy said to the Owl, 'You elegant fowl!
    How charmingly sweet you sing!
    O let us be married! too long we have tarried:
    But what shall we do for a ring?'
    They sailed away, for a year and a day,
    To the land where the Bong-tree grows
    And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood
    With a ring at the end of his nose,
    His nose,
    His nose,
    With a ring at the end of his nose.

    III
    'Dear pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling
    Your ring?'Said the Piggy,'I will.'
    So they took it away, and were married next day
    By the Turkey who lives on the hill.
    They dined on mince, and slices of quince,
    Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
    And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
    They danced by the light of the moon,
    The moon,
    The moon,
    They danced by the light of the moon.
