I need some ideas for a couple verses to be read during our ceremony. I for sure want 1 Cor 13 ( love chapter). I have several that I like but before turning this into the pastor this morning wanted to see if the Hive had some good ones I had not considered!

We are using Tobit 8:4b-8 for our Bible verse.

You can look up some Catholic suggestion sites– we’re having a full Mass so we have to have quite a few readings in ours! My favorite is Ruth 1:16-17

We’re using Ecclesiastes 4:12 for our ceremony and maybe Ruth 1:16 which was on our invitations. 🙂

wow— great suggestions! I do like Ephesians 5 and it was one I am considering as well.

We used Ephesians 5 from the Message Bible… we liked the modern wording better. =)
21Out of respect for Christ, be courteously reverent to one another.
22-24Wives, understand and support your husbands in ways that show your support for Christ. The husband provides leadership to his wife the way Christ does to his church, not by domineering but by cherishing. So just as the church submits to Christ as he exercises such leadership, wives should likewise submit to their husbands.
25-28Husbands, go all out in your love for your wives, exactly as Christ did for the church—a love marked by giving, not getting. Christ’s love makes the church whole. His words evoke her beauty. Everything he does and says is designed to bring the best out of her, dressing her in dazzling white silk, radiant with holiness. And that is how husbands ought to love their wives. They’re really doing themselves a favor—since they’re already “one” in marriage.

@Aggie10: This is a great list! I need a scriptural reading to have at my wedding and my fiance and I are just sick to death of the Corinthians verses. No offense to anyone, it’s lovely and meaningful and always nice for weddings, but we just feel like it’s the default reading and we want to pick something a little more unique to us. I’ll be giving these verses a look!

@runsyellowlites: I do like the Message Bible…. thanks for posting that I forgot/didn’t think to look up different versions of some of our verses
