Sample Wedding Ceremony Script

You can use this basic ceremony as-is, or as a starting point when creating your own ceremony. There is no legal form for a wedding ceremony, but most ceremonies follow these established conventions.

1. Processional

Beginning of the ceremony

2. Invocation

Minister (to the reception)

Dearly Beloved and Honored Guests,

We are gathered together here to join

_____________________________________________

and

_____________________________________________

in the spiritual union of marriage.

This contract is not to be entered into lightly but thoughtfully and seriously, and with a deep realization of its obligations and responsibilities. Please remember that love, loyalty, and understanding are the foundations of a happy and enduring home.

3. Declaration of Intent

Minister (to the groom)

Do you

_____________________________________________

take this woman

_____________________________________________

to be your lawfully wedded wife, to have and to hold, in sickness and in health, in good times and woe, for richer or poorer, keeping yourself unto her for as long as you both shall live?

Groom (to the bride)

“I do”

Minister (to the bride)

Do you

_____________________________________________

take this man

_____________________________________________

to be your lawfully wedded husband, to have and to hold, in sickness and in health, in good times and woe, for richer or poorer, keeping yourself unto him for as long as you both shall live?

Bride (to the groom)

“I do”

4. Vows and Rings Exchange

Minister

_____________________________________________

and

_____________________________________________

will now exchange rings as a symbol of their love and commitment.

5. Pronouncement

Minister (to the reception)

By the authority vested in me by American Marriage Ministries and the State of ________________________ I now pronounce you husband and wife.

6. Recessional

End of the ceremony.

1. Get ordained. The day of the wedding, you’ll sign the marriage license as “Reverend” under the “Official Title” section, and list your denomination as “Universal Life.” You are responsible for mailing in the signed license following the ceremony. (Mail it certified just to be on the safe side.)

2. Step into your role and take charge. As officiant, you might end up taking responsibility for more than the service — everything from making sure the best man has the rings, to cuing musicians, setting up any ritual items, cuing the ushers and double-checking that the marriage license is present and ready to be filled out. The bride and groom already have a ton of details to remember, and they’ll appreciate your spearheading the action with a sense of command.

3. Write the liturgy. Find out whether the couple wants you to help write the liturgy — the script for the ceremony itself — or whether they want to do it themselves. The word “liturgy” translates as “work of the people,” so it should reflect the two people standing in front of you, whether that means it should be silly and lighthearted or serious and literary. Reach out to already-married friends to skim various ceremony examples from over the years. or a quick Google search, can be a great place to start for sample ceremony scripts.

4. Email the couple’s friends and family members for inspiration.  If you’re being asked to officiate, you probably know the couple well, but that’s only one view of them. Ask others who are close to them for funny anecdotes, nostalgic tidbits and inspiration. Officiating a wedding can mean a lot of pressure to say something wise and meaningful about marriage, but I found that just getting a few stories from folks who are dear to the couple made it so much easier. A few conversation starters: How do you know the couple? What are your favorite memories of them? What do they love about each other? What are their favorite qualities (and pet peeves) about each other? What, in your eyes, makes them click? What do they as a couple bring to the world?

5. Interview the couple individually a few weeks before the wedding. Before officiating, I always meet with the couple — or speak with them individually over the phone — a few weeks before the service and ask them some similar questions privately, which I then incorporate into the ceremony. These conversations can reveal particularly sweet and intimate details about their relationship.

6. Encourage the couple to write their own vows. Many couples prefer to write their own vows. Feel free to share examples with them from different faith traditions as a starting point. Make sure you have an extra printed copy in your folder, too, on the day of the service.

7. Write your reflection. Back in the day, church-types called this a sermon. You can think of it as an opportunity to gather all those nostalgic thoughts people shared with you and present them lovingly to the couple as a capstone of their celebration. Make sure to print this, and the entirety of the service, out on old-fashioned paper, rather than relying on technology. At a friend’s recent wedding in Sonoma, Calif., the 102-degree June heat made the officiant’s iPhone shut down. Luckily, it was just the rehearsal, and by ceremony time, he had made a printed copy. Don’t get caught unprepared in the literal heat of the moment.

8. Have fun and keep it real. The couple chose you to bless their union because they love you. No doubt you’ll do a phenomenal job. And have no fear: Everyone’s sipping champagne anyway, so that pre-ceremony cocktail hour will make everything you say that much funnier.

Genesis 1:27-28: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. And God blessed them. And God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.’ ”

Malachi 2:14-15: “But you say, ‘Why does he not?’ Because the LORD was witness between you and the wife of your youth, to whom you have been faithless, though she is your companion and your wife by covenant.”

Isaiah 54:5: “For your Maker is your husband, the LORD of hosts is his name; and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer, the God of the whole earth he is called.”

Song of Solomon 8:6-7: “Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm, for love is strong as death, jealousy is fierce as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, the very flame of the LORD. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it. If a man offered for love all the wealth of his house, he would be utterly despised.”

Ephesians 4:2-3: “With all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”

Colossians 3:14: “And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.”

Ecclesiastes 4:9: “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone?”

Ephesians 5:25: “For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her.”

Genesis 2:24: “Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.”

Ecclesiastes 4:12: “Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”

Mark 10:9: “Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”

Ephesians 5:25-33: “Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, …”

Bible Verses About Love

The Bible has a lot to say about the bonds of love and devotion. Bible verses about love speak of the perfect love that everyone should have toward their friends, family and mankind, not to mention the Lord. However, Bible verses about love also offer a revealing look at the strength and hope that romantic love can provide. It can be difficult to put your feelings for one another into words, but these Bible verses about love seem to capture its essence just right.

Romans 13:8: “Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.”

1 Corinthians 13:4-5: “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.”

1 Corinthians 13:2: “If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.”

1 Corinthians 16:14: “Do everything in love.”

Song of Solomon 8:7: “Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot wash it away. If one were to give all the wealth of his house for love, it would be utterly scorned.”

Psalm 143:8: “Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life.”

Proverbs 3:3-4: “Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.”

1 John 4:16: “And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.”

Ephesians 4:2: “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.”

1 Peter 4:8: “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.”

John 15:12: “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.”

1 Corinthians 13:13: “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”

Song of Solomon 4:9: “You have captivated my heart, my sister, my bride; you have captivated my heart with one glance of your eyes, with one jewel of your necklace.”

Hebrews 10:24-25: “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”

Proverbs 30:18-19: “There are three things that amaze me—no, four things that I don’t understand: how an eagle glides through the sky, how a snake slithers on a rock, how a ship navigates the ocean, how a man loves a woman.”

1 John 4:12: “No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.”

Proverbs 31:10: “Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.”

Ruth 1:16-17: “Entreat me not to leave you, Or to turn back from following after you; For wherever you go, I will go; And wherever you lodge, I will lodge; Your people shall be my people, And your God, my God. Where you die, I will die, And there will I be buried. The Lord do so to me, and more also, If anything but death parts you and me.”

Romans 12:10: “Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.”

1 Peter 4:8: “Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins.”

Ephesians 5:21: “Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.”

Ephesians 4:32: “Be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.”

Genesis 2:18–25: “Then the LORD God said, ‘It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.’ … So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. And the rib that the LORD God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man.”

1 Peter 3:7: “In the same way, you husbands must give honor to your wives. Treat your wife with understanding as you live together. She may be weaker than you are, but she is your equal partner in God’s gift of new life. Treat her as you should so your prayers will not
