Minimalist Ceremony Script

This minimalist wedding ceremony script was written by American Marriage Ministries to serve as a starting point for your own wedding ceremony. This minimalist ceremony is likely the shortest ceremony script you will find. This script is stripped down to only the essentials. We encourage you to use this script as is or build on this script for a more personalized ceremony for the couple.
