New script! A Traditional Baptist Wedding Ceremony

Published Thursday, Jun. 30th, 2022

There’s a new wedding script in our library! 




A Traditional Baptist Wedding Ceremony



This traditional wedding script includes a moving Invocation, opening and closing prayers, the perfect wording for a sweet ring and vow exchange, and thoughtful scripture readings from The Gospel of John and The Book of Genesis (John 15:9-12 and Genesis 2:24). 


You’ll also find guidance for the wedding officiant on how to write a personal and heartfelt Homily to capture the couple’s love story, and timeless reflections on the joys and responsibilities of marriage. 


From the script: 


“The sacred covenant of marriage is a sanctuary and a home. It must not be entered into lightly, but reverently, discreetly, soberly, and advisedly, with God’s guidance and blessing. 


We rejoice today as (Bride) and (Groom) receive one of God’s greatest gifts – a loving partner to grow with, share life’s joys and challenges with, build a family with, grow old with, and journey with in faith throughout all of their days. 


So let us pray, asking for His blessing on this marriage.”



Use this ceremony script as it is, or add your own favorite readings, quotes on love and marriage, a unity ceremony, or personal details to customize each section. 


This ceremony script is best for Baptist couples and other Protestant Christian couples who are planning a traditional or semi-traditional religious wedding service. It can also be modified for any non-denominational Christian wedding ceremony.
