- Wedding: July 2012
I am creating my wedding program and it is 99.9% finished. I am struggling with what to call the “final words” our officiant will be saying before announcing us husband and wife.
We are getting married in an awesome venue that isn’t a church, and we are having a non-religious ceremony. God is not appearing at our wedding at all.
Here’s the general order of the wedding ceremony:
Exchange of vows/rings
DON’T KNOW WHAT TO PUT HERE
Presentation of Bride and Groom
So, what is going in the bolded spot is the parting words/message to us, which includes a few words from her and a reading also (she will be reading the poem/reading that starts with “These are the hands of your best friend, young and strong and full of love for you… for anyone who knows it)
It doesn’t feel right to call this a “blessing”, partly because it just isn’t, and I associate “blessing” with religion
Any thoughts on what to call this part of our ceremony in the program?
