I’ve heard this done in older traditional weddings.  You might look up liturgy for Catholic or Lutheran weddings, there are some examples you can use there.  They also have some examples in the liturgy for baptisms you could adapt.

Here is what we had:

Rabbi: Will you, the families and friends of 2dBride and NotFroofy, support and uphold them in their marriage now and in the years to come?

Congregation: We will.

I really like that idea.  I’m going to propose that to my Fiance.

I like the wording you used @2dBride !

We had guest participate in the ceremony. I wanted to do something to recognize everyone’s support. A few people told me they liked this part. This is what we did:

Officiant: Please stand for the vows of family and friends.

 J and S have chosen you, their friends and family, to be here on this day as witnesses to their marriage. It has been their decision to bind themselves by marriage, and their lives will be strengthened and enriched by the support you give. Friends and family, after each question, please respond “I will”

Friends and family, will you support J and S in their marriage?

Family & Friends: I will.

Friends and family, Will you celebrate with them, encourage them, remind them of this day?

F&F: I will.

Friends and family, will you help them celebrate their marriage, by supporting them by standing beside them and never between them?

F&F: I will.
