Round Up Of The Top 10 Ceremony Readings

With modern weddings taking place outdoors, in museums, in restaurants, and even breweries, traditions are being left out and ceremonies are getting shorter and shorter. A short ceremony can definitely be a good thing; you don’t want to bore your guests or lose their attention. However, you don’t want it to be too short to where your guests are left wondering what just happened. Including a couple of ceremony readings is a great way to add something special to your wedding and still keep it short and sweet. Here’s a round up of the top 10 ceremony readings:

Religious Ceremony Readings

1 Corinthians 13

Our favorite lines: “Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”

Colossians 3:12-17

Our favorite lines: “Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony.”

Matthew 19:4-6

Our favorite lines: “So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”

Song of Songs 2:10-13

Our favorite lines: “Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away; for now the winter is past, the rain is over and gone.”

Ruth 1:16-17

Our favorite lines: “Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay.”

Non-Religious Ceremony Readings

Love by Roy Croft

Our favorite lines: “I love you, not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me.

He’s not perfect by Bob Marley

Our favorite lines: “But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him.”

A Marriage by Mark Twain

Our favorite lines: “It gives to two questioning natures a reason for living and something to live for.”

To Love Is Not To Possess by James Kavanaugh

Our favorite lines: “Love is to join and separate, to walk alone and together, to find a laughing freedom that lonely isolation does not permit.”

“The Art of Marriage” by Wilferd A. Peterson

Our favorite lines: “It is not only marrying the right partner, it is being the right partner.”

Choose whichever reading resonates with you and your fiance the most; not what you think you should pick. You can even choose song lyrics or any passage that the two of you find meaningful.
