Wedding ceremony readings are verbiage read by a family member or friend during a wedding ceremony. We wanted to provide a showing of our favorite examples of our favorite readings. However, while researching such readings, we realized that we would need to have permission by the authors to post their words on our site. You see, authors own the copyrights to their published words. Therefore, we were forced to change our thinking a bit to be legal.
As a result, we decided to give you, our readers, the best sources for finding the perfect wedding ceremony reading.
- Recite the lyrics of your favorite song. This could include a song about the bridal couple (motorcycle riders – Song: Born To Be Wild, ice cream lovers – Song: Ice Cream). In addition, the song read during the ceremony can be played as the bride and groom’s first dance song. Love songs may include John Lennon’s Grow Old With Me and Dance Me To The End Of Love written by Leonard Cohen.
- Recite your favorite Bible scripture. One of our favorites is 1 Corinthians 13 – Love Is The Greatest.
- Recite your favorite poem. It doesn’t have to be a love poem. Just select a poem that describes the bride and groom or describes their feelings for each other.
- Wedding ceremony readings from movies. There are an unlimited number of movies that contain a wedding ceremony. Such movies include a quote from The Prophet and a famous quote from the movie When Harry Met Sally.
- Popular literary excerpts from the likes of Plato and any other great literary writers. It could even be an excerpt from your favorite book! Check out Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.
- Take an exempt from an opera. Verdels’s opera La Traviatta is a great example.
- Also review your favorite love story plays.Review Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare.
- Not only excerpts from movies common, so are love meaning excerpts from your favorite TV shows.
- Last and probably the most important is to write your readings from the bride and groom’s own hearts. Nothing will be more powerful than from the bridal couple themselves.
I hope this gives you some ideas on the verbiage for your wedding ceremony. There is plenty of examples on the web for each category.
