NON-DENOMINATIONAL WEDDING SCRIPT SAMPLES


While wedding ceremonies have religious origins, many couples are non-religious, or don't subscribe to any particular denomination. We've assembled a library of non-denominational ceremony scripts to provide couples and ministers with basic ceremonies that don't have any spiritual components. This lets you find wording for your own significance, and create something unique to you.

GET INVOLVED


Our ministers' roles in their communities extend beyond officiating weddings. We are also community leaders, educators, and advocates for justice. There are plenty of ways to support our efforts, from fighting for our ministers rights in Virginia, to supporting other organizations that are committed to leaving this world a better place than we found it.

American Marriage Ministries is one of thousands of Non-Profit Charities working in our communities. While we strive for religious and personal freedom, other organizations are working just as hard in other areas of society. We're all in this together.
