Well here are a few ideas –

  • These rings are a symbol of the unbroken circle of love. This love is freely given, with no beginning and no end, no giver and no receiver, for each is the giver and each is the receiver. May these rings always remind you of the vows you have taken today.

  • The ring is a symbol of unity into which your two lives are now joined in an unbroken circle; in which, wherever you go, you will return to one another.

  • Around the world the wedding rings are the strongest and most visible sign of the bond these two people are about to make. A commitment to life, to each other and to the future.

    I hold in my hands the rings that (Bride) and (Groom) have chosen to exchange. These rings are visible signs of their commitment to one another. Your ceremony the rings will not only be a gift from one to another but will be given with the love, support and wisdom for all the years to come.

    As you look at these never-ending circles, called your wedding rings. Remember this moment when you were first presented with your ring, the love and the everlasting commitment of forever. Never forget your partner in life is always with you in your heart, no matter the physical distance apart. These rings bind and remind your hearts and your souls together. May your love grow and may you cherish your love always.

Now We Are One, by Kate Fisher


When thoughts take wing a wedding ring encircles all our dreams

And love abounds above, around,

enriching all our schemes

We plan together all our life

to make our dreams come true

When love is there a smile, a prayer, a hug, a kiss will do

And then together hand in hand

we go with love we’ve won

And you will see

the you and me

that once were two — are one

Whe are using this one: (sorry, might be long and not sure where I got it from)

This is the point in the ceremony when people talk about the wedding bands being a perfect circle, having no beginning and no end. But we all know that these rings have a beginning. Rock is dug up from the earth. Metals are liquefied in a furnace at a thousand degrees. The hot metal is molded, cooled, and then painstakingly polished. Something beautiful is made from raw elements.

Love is like that. It comes from humble beginnings, made by imperfect beings. It is the process of making something beautiful where there was once nothing at all. Like these rings, a successful marriage is not something that just happens. It takes work. It takes understanding. And it takes time. It takes a commitment to do whatever it takes to make your relationship thrive, and not just simply survive.

Brooke and Zach, let these rings serve as a reminder of the love you feel at this very moment. As you look at your wedding band, remember the great gifts that you have been given and all that you have still to share.

I took some of the ideas here and created this one……give me credit please….Rev Big AL Bartell

In prehistory, early couples wove blades of grass around each others’ fingers. But that was only a ceremony, the grass withered and fell off, it was not a permanent. But the gold from these rings was born of rock mined from the ground, rock as old as the earth itself. That ore was then refined into pure gold. The gold was heated and molded into perfect circles, then cooled and sized to fit the bride and groom and finally painstakingly polished. Raw materials made into something beautiful and everlasting that perfectly fits your two fingers.

Marriage is like that. It comes from ancient traditions and generations of all your ancestors brought together here today. It is made by the union of people who are imperfect. It will be uncomfortable at first. But there is a process of making something beautiful from all those awkward moments and rocky trials. It takes time and effort. It takes refining, molding and polishing. It takes understanding and commitment to make your relationship thrive, and not wither like a blade of grass. But eventually you will forge a beautiful union, unlike any other, that fits perfectly like these rings on your fingers.

Here’s ours:

“May I please have the rings.

To the ancient Egyptians, the wedding ring held supernatural significance. The circle symbolized both eternal love and an open door or gateway leading to adventures known and unknown. The gold in your rings represents an incorruptible nature that cannot be tarnished by use or time.

May the union of X and Y be as eternal and incorruptible as these rings.

X, place your ring on Y’s hand and repeat after me: I give you this ring as a symbol of my love and commitment.

Y… (etc)
