Whether you are doing them printed on the programs, done as readings or hanging on a sign somehwere – what Bible verses are you incorporating into your wedding day?
Psalm 121 is my main Bible verse for the day (I think)

I think we will have a reading of Isaiah 43:2&3. Some pretty traumatic stuff has happened to us since we’ve been dating and it’s always been a source of reassurance and peace.

Ecclesiastes 4:12. It’s the cornerstone of our marriage. Once we buy a house I want to get a big prayer cloth, a tapestry really, with it.

One of my favorites is Corinthians 13:4-8, but it’s been done so much already, I’m looking for a new one.

@everyheart: Yep it’s overdone but I’m doing it anyway! It’s my absolute favourite passage in the Bible. But we’re doing the whole of Chapter 13, not just verses 4-8.
We’re also doing Romans 13:8-10 – about how love fulfils the law

I’ve always wanted to include either Romans 12: 9-21 or Colossians 3:12-17
Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.
Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. On the contrary:
“If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Our reading is 1 John 4 v7-21 about God’s love for us

Oh, gosh… Ruth all the way! I love the song of Ruth, plus it’s one of my favourite stories of all time.
Also, Psalm 23, because marriage is not all sweetness and light. And Matthew 22, and Colossians 3 (as PPs state, stopping just short of the “submission verses!).

Song of Solomon 5:2
“I sleep, but my heart waketh: it is the voice of my beloved that knocketh, saying, Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled: for my head is filled with dew, and my locks with the drops of the night.”
This part “my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled” illustrates the path in which God has taken me and my Fiance in our relationship. It is also the verse God gave me to be sure he was the one I’d marry, even before we were dating 🙂
In spanish “my love” it is translated as “my friend”
So we were brothers in Christ first, then very good friends, then I was his dove and I will now be his bride 🙂

@kateisstoned: 1 Corinthians 13.
Fiance and I had to memorize it in our pre-marital counseling class and he recited verses 4-7 before proposing.
We have verses 4-8 printed on our favors. Our favors are candles in a tin with our name and wedding date on the label.

I have not heard this scripture used in a wedding talk, but I have seen it engraved in part in a wedding ring. Ruth 1:16,17 The part that says “Your people will be my people your God my God”. passages from the book of Ruth are beautiful and shows loyality to the faith she adopted as she at one time was associated with the pagan nations and did not want to go back.
