This bilingual wedding ceremony script perfectly captures the joy, unconditional love, patience, and deep friendship that make a marriage successful.
The ceremony begins with a heartfelt welcome and invocation from the wedding officiant. This short speech is written in English and Spanish, followed by a few words on the nature of love taken from a passage in Corinthians (Corintios) :
“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude…”
Next, the couple exchanges heartfelt written vows. This section is left open, making the script easy to modify and customize with words straight from the heart.
The ring exchange is especially romantic, emphasizing the couple’s connection and unbreakable bond. These promises are translated into both Spanish and English, giving the officiant and the couple a choice between the two.
From the script:
As this ring encircles your finger…From this moment forward...So will my love forever encircle you...You will never walk alone...My heart will be your shelter...My arms will be your home...We will walk thru life as partners & best friends...I promise to do my best to love, cherish and accept you...Just the way you are...I give you my heart until the end of time...I have no greater gift to give. I promise to love and cherish you always, and my greatest love and companion.
And in Spanish:
Así como este anillo rodea tu dedo… a partir de este momento… de igual forma mi amor te rodeará para siempre… Nunca caminarás en soledad… Mi corazón será tu refugio… Mis brazos serán tu hogar… Caminaremos por la vida como socios y mejores amigos… Prometo hacer todo lo posible para amarte, apreciarte y aceptarte… tal como eres… Te doy mi corazón hasta el final de los tiempos… No tengo mayor regalo para dar. Prometo amarte y cuidarte siempre, mi mayor amor y acompañante.
This script follows a basic wedding ceremony outline, closing with the officiant’s pronouncement and a sweet kiss from the newlyweds before they head out to the reception for a night of laughter and dancing!
