Written Vows Ceremony Script

This wedding ceremony script leaves the couples vows section empty. This script was written by American Marriage Ministries to serve as a starting point for couples that want to have a Christian wedding ceremony. The couple will provide their vows at the ceremony. This script leaves the vows as a surprise for the couple and officiant. We encourage you to use this script as is or build on this script for a more personalized ceremony for the couple.

INVOCATION

officiant to the reception

"We are gathered here on this beautiful day to witness the union of [PARTNER A] and [PARTNER B] in holy matrimony. This is a day of great celebration, for a married life - a shared life - is a great blessing.

As [PARTNER A] and [PARTNER B] embark on this journey together they will be able to nurture a love that makes them better versions of themselves. Marriage is a garden we sow with love, and harvest in personal growth.

[PARTNER A] and [PARTNER B], on your journey together, keep your spouse in the space of highest priority in your heart. The love that you share must be guarded and cherished forever, for it is your most valuable treasure.

Always remember these words; Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance."
