New wedding script! Unity Puzzle Wedding Ceremony Script

Published Wednesday, Jan. 11th, 2023


This unique unity ceremony & officiant script symbolize a perfect fit in love, & the joys of working together to build a lasting marriage

 


You and your sweetheart fit together perfectly! Celebrate a love that’s meant to be as you work together to assemble a happy and lasting marriage.

 


We’ve added a new wedding script to our library!

 

 

 


This creative wedding ceremony script includes a unique unity ceremony: the unity puzzle ritual! 

 

The ceremony opens with a warm welcome and greeting to the guests from the officiant, followed by a moment of silence for lost loved ones. 

 

Then, the wedding officiant introduces the unity puzzle ceremony and describes the symbolism and meaning of the ritual. As the couple completes the puzzle in front of friends and family, the officiant says a few words about the importance of working together to build a happy and lasting marriage. 

 

From the script: 

 

“This puzzle represents the many challenges you will face during your life together. Some of these will be easy, and others will be hard. You can expect times when you will struggle to find the way, and times when you need to try several approaches to find the one that works.

 

Like the many facets of your individual lives and your life together, each piece of this puzzle is unique. The contours and outlines vary from one to another, yet there IS a solution—they complement one another and, together, they constitute something meaningful and lovely that is greater than any of the separate parts.

 

May your marriage be like this puzzle: rich and inspiring, full of challenges that hone your ability to understand, to cope and to enhance one another’s efforts.”

The unity puzzle can be kept as a keepsake following the ceremony, and displayed in the home as a sweet reminder of the wedding day. 

 

The ceremony continues with a heartfelt exchange of wedding vows and rings, a pronouncement from the officiant and a short introduction of the newlyweds, as guests clap and cheer in celebration of their marriage. 

 

And because this script is written by a professional officiant, it includes all the wording you need to ensure your ceremony meets the legal requirements in your state, including a simple ‘declaration of intent,’ and flows well from one part of the ceremony to the next… giving you the foundation you need for a fun and enjoyable event.

 

If you’re looking for a sweet, simple, non-religious, and gender-neutral script with a creative unity ceremony – this is it!

This original wedding script is written by professional officiant Dan Henkel.

 

Dan believes guests should come away saying “That was so cool… and so THEM!” and has been performing marriage for over 25 years. His upbeat, inclusive style reflects his background as an award-winning communicator, entertainer and advocate.
