Both Fi and I’s parents have been married for a long time, His parents 32 years, my parents will be 30 years in July. So, we want to honor them during our wedding ceremony, saying something about what they’ve taught us about marriage, love, etc. Does anyone have any wording on this. I’ve found some, just nothing perfect yet. Any help would be wonderful!

We wanted to do the same thing and this is what we came up with:
Cecelia and Eric want to acknowledge their parents and offer profound gratitude for all the love and care they showed in raising them. Mary, Gene, Sally, and Doug you have prepared your children for this day in countless ways. You have given Cecelia and Eric the tools and the desire to succeed as individuals but you have also given them the ability to recognize and embrace the boundless potential only found in a loving relationship. Because of your guidance they can confidently and willingly take this step together.
Gene, Mary, Sally, and Doug, will you please stand. Are you willing, now and always, to support and strengthen this marriage by upholding Cecelia and Eric with your love and support? “We Do”
Your love and care will nurture Eric and Cecelia’s relationship. You may be seated.
It worked really well and our parents really enjoyed the opportunity to affirm their support in a more formal way. We struggled with this part for a while though, good luck!
