I am thinking of including a bible verse along with our invitation. So far I like these, which one do you all like the best or is there a different verse you like which I have not listed?
Love…bears all things, believes all things,
hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never fails.
1 Corinthians 13:7-8
So they are no longer two, but one.
Therefore what God has joined together,
let man not separate.
As long as we love one another,
God will live in us,
and his love will be
complete in us.
1 John 4:12

I love Matthew 9:16. It’s beautful, simple, and classic.

I like Matthew first and then John 2nd… For what it’s worth, I can’t stand the use of Corinthians for weddings…. I can’t help but think of the orgies and prostitutes he was writing in regards to for that passage, lol.

I would avoid Matthew. As this phrasing is usually used at the end of a marriage ceremony after you have actually been joined in marriage by God I don’t think is appropriate to use on the invitation prior to the wedding. I would go with John .

I am including 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 on the back of my invites! But I do love 1 John 4:12!

Absolutely not Corinthians. It’s the most overused Biblical passage of all time, it’s vomit inducingly soppy when taken in a romantic context, and it also does not mean what you think it means.
That verse is not talking about romantic love, and it’s also not a great contextual use of that passage.
Either of the others should be fine, I think. Personally I like Matthew because it is appropriate for weddings, people will find it familiar, and it comes across as neither too pious nor too soppy.

I honestly wouldn’t put a Bible verse on invitations at all. I wouldn’t want any of my guests to feel uncomfortable if they didn’t share our religious beliefs.

I know this thread is super old…but I’m hoping to put Song of Solomon 3:4 on ours. “I have found the one whom my soul loves.”
