You may feel free to provide a ceremony of your own or use the following as a suggestion. If you would like additional ideas, I offer several reading and ceremony options.

Welcome to family and friends:

We have gathered together in the sight of God and these witnesses to celebrate the wedding of [Groom] and [Bride].

If anyone present can show just and legal cause why they may not be joined, let them speak now or forever hold their peace.

Opening

Marriage is dedication. You give yourself, your life and love, into the hands of the one you love. You do so trustingly and generously. By the same token, each of you receives a gift -- the life and love of the other. You receive this gift not only from the one you love, but also from the parents who brought you into the world and reared you and from the personal world of friends and family who are joined in friendship and faith in your marriage.

Marriage is an embrace of souls -- it is a commitment to surrender to love, to trust in love, and to learn by loving. It enables two separate people to share their desires, longings, dreams and memories, their joys and laughter, and to help each other through their uncertainties.

Consecration

Let us pray…
Divine Creator of all of this wonder, we pray that your love and your joy may flow through us and around us at this time. Shine your light upon [Groom] and [Bride] so that they may give wholly to one another in total joy.

Nourish their minds with your wisdom
Enrich their hearts with your love
Feed their souls with your peace
Bless their marriage with your presence
Give them courage and inspiration to honor the vows they make here today.
May all who gather here as witnesses support and encourage their union and be blessed and uplifted as we celebrate with them.
Amen…

Vows:

Marriage is a precious gift; a lifelong dedication to love and a daily challenge to love one another more fully and more freely.

With this understanding, do you [Groom], choose [Bride] to be your beloved wife? ("I do.")
Do you promise to be a tender, faithful husband? ("I do.")
Do you promise to love, honor, and cherish her, in sickness and in health, for richer for poorer, for better for worse, from this day forward? ("I do.")

With this understanding, do you [Bride], choose [Groom] to be your beloved husband? ("I do.")

Do you promise to be a tender, faithful wife? ("I do.")
Do you promise to love, honor, and cherish him, in sickness and in health, for richer for poorer, for better for worse, from this day forward? ("I do.")

Rings

Spirit of love and truth, bless these rings and let them be to [Groom] and [Bride] symbols of unending love and faithfulness and of the promises they have made to each other.

[Groom], place this ring on [Bride's] finger and repeat after me:

I give you this ring as a sign of our marriage.
With my body and soul I honor you,
All that I am I give to you,
And all that I have I share with you.

[Bride], place this ring on [Groom's] finger and repeat after me:

I give you this ring as a sign of our marriage.
With my body and soul I honor you,
All that I am I give to you,
And all that I have I share with you.

Closing

To be loved is to know joy and happiness. To give love is to know the joy of sharing oneself; for it is through the miracle of love that we discover the fullness of life. May God always be with you, protect you, and guide you both, now and forever.

Pronouncement:

In the presence of God and before these witnesses, [Groom] and [Bride] have given their consent and made their marriage vows to each other. They have declared their marriage by joining hands and by exchanging rings. I announce with great joy that you are husband and wife.

Kiss:

You may seal your vows with a kiss.

Presentation:

Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. and Mrs. [Groom's full name].
