what bible scriptures or verses are you having read in your wedding ceremony? I’m thinking I will incorporate my brothers into the ceremony as they are not IN the wedding by having them be ushers and also having them read bible verses… any suggestions?
Thanks so much!

Psalm 145! I wanted a very praiseful and celebratory, not necessarily love or marriage-oriented, passage and something different. I love it and can’t wait to share it with everyone at our wedding!
I saw from Miss Sewing’s post about her wedding programs that she’s using parts of 1 John 3, which FI and I also considered. I also like Colossians 3:12-14, but thought it was too short for scripture reading and didn’t love it as much when extended to verse 17.

My father wrote something to read at our ceremony and included Philippians 2: 3-5 as one of the verses he used. He used others as well, but I can’t remember which ones, I’d have to dig up his things and I don,t know where DH put it!

We’re doing Colossians 3:12-17… We’ve had a lot of pointless drama from FI’s family throughout our engagement, and we just loved how this passage is all about forgiveness and peace and kindness. It fits our situation really well.

Song of Solomon 2:10-14, 16a; 8:6-7
Love is strong as death:
My beloved speaks and says to me:
‘Arise, my love, my fair one,
and come away;
11 for now the winter is past,
the rain is over and gone.
12 The flowers appear on the earth;
the time of singing has come,
and the voice of the turtle-dove
is heard in our land.
13 The fig tree puts forth its figs,
and the vines are in blossom;
they give forth fragrance.
Arise, my love, my fair one,
and come away.
14 O my dove, in the clefts of the rock,
in the covert of the cliff,
let me see your face,
let me hear your voice;
for your voice is sweet,
and your face is lovely.
16 My beloved is mine and I am his;
he pastures his flock among the lilies.
6 Set me as a seal upon your heart,
as a seal upon your arm;
for love is strong as death,
passion fierce as the grave.
Its flashes are flashes of fire,
a raging flame.
7 Many waters cannot quench love,
neither can floods drown it.
If one offered for love
all the wealth of one’s house,
it would be utterly scorned.
