You're getting married! Now, which ceremony is right for you?
There are so many kinds of nuptial rites to choose from. Do you want traditional? Multi-cultural? Or short and sweet?
Family and friends, we are witnesses to the union of two individuals who choose to commit to a life together. Our responsibility as their friends and witnesses is to provide them as a couple with our love, support and approval.
For the beauty around us, the strength it offers and the peace it brings, we are grateful and honored to be a part of the life you have chosen to live as husband and wife from this day forward.( Recognize loved ones present or departed optional here)
Will you Groom have this woman to be your wedded wife, to love her, comfort her, honor and keep her and forsaking all others, for so long as you both shall live? (I Will)
Will you, Bride take Groom to be your wedded husband, to love him, comfort him, honor and keep him and forsaking all others, so long as you both shall live? (I Will)
Take hands and repeat after me: I, Groom, take you, Bride, to be my wedded wife, to have and to hold, for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, to love and to cherish, from this day forward.
I, Bride, take you, Groom to be my wedded husband, to have and to hold, for better or for worse, for richer of for poorer, to love and to cherish, from this day forward.
Rings please… Place the ring on the Bride’s finger and say: With this ring, I thee wed. Place the ring on the Groom’s finger and say: With this ring, I thee wed.
In as much as Bride and Groom have consented together in wedlock and have witnessed the same before this company and pledged their vows to each other, by the authority vested in me by this State, I now pronounce you husband and wife. (Kiss)
