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

    I would use the first sentence of Matthew 19:6

    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.”
