True love begins long before the wedding day

True love begins well before the wedding day, and the efforts of marriage and of love continue well beyond the ceremony’s end. A brief moment in time, a beautiful memory and the stroke of the pen are all that is required to create the legal bond of marriage, but it takes a lifetime of love, commitment, and compromise to make marriage durable and everlasting. Today you declare your commitment to each other before family and friends, your yesterdays were the path to this moment.

Now you continue your journey toward a future of togetherness, building each day in strength and unity…

Remember to focus on what is right between you, not just the part that seems wrong.

Take responsibility for making the other feel safe, and give the highest priority to the tenderness, gentleness and kindness that your connection deserves.

When frustration, difficulty and fear assail your relationship, as they threaten all relationships at some time or another, remember to focus on what is right between you, not just the part that seems wrong.

In this way, you can survive the times when clouds drift across the face of the sun in your lives, remembering that, just because you may lose sight of it for a moment, does not mean the sun has gone away. And, if each of you takes responsibility for the quality of your life together, it will be marked by abundance and delight.

May you have happiness, and may you find it in making one another happy.

“May you always need one another, not to fill an emptiness, but to help each other know your fullness.
May you want one another, but not out of lack. May you embrace one another, but not encircle one another.
May you succeed in all important ways with each other, and not fail in the little graces. May you have happiness, and may you find it in making one another happy.
May you have love, and may you find it in loving one another.

The only real security…

“The only real security is not in owning or possessing, not in demanding or expecting, not in hoping, even.
Security in a relationship lies neither in looking back to what was in nostalgia, nor forward to what it might be in dread or anticipation, but living in the present relationship and accepting it as it is now.
Relationships must be like islands, one must accept them for what they are here and now, within their limits - islands, surrounded and interrupted by the sea, and continually visited and abandoned by the tides.”

wording on love and marriage for your ceremony

Love is a friendship that has caught fire

Love is a friendship that has caught fire.
It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving.
It is loyalty through good and bad.
It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weakness.
Love is content with the present.
It hopes for the future and it doesn’t brood over the past.
It is the day-in and day-out chronicle of irritations, problems, compromises, small disappointments, big victories and working toward common goals.
If you have love in your life it can make up for a great many things you lack.
If you do not have love in your life, no matter what else there is, it is not enough.
So search for love.
Share it. But most of all… ENJOY IT.

love ceremony wording

You can give without loving but you can never love without giving.

You can give without loving
You can give without loving but you can never love without giving.
The great acts of love are done by those who are habitually performing small acts of kindness. We pardon to the extent that we love. Love is knowing that even when you are alone, you will never be truly alone again. And great happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved. Loved for ourselves. And even loved in spite of ourselves.

- Victor Hugo, from Les Miserables

wedding ceremony love sayings

Our great adventure

We are today still dizzy with the astonishment of love.
We are surrounded by affection – by smiles and kindliness,
by flowers and music and gifts and celebration.
Yet they enclose a silence
where we are close with one another.

My eyes see only you.
I hear nothing but the words we speak to one another
This is the day we start our life together.
This is our new beginning.

- Pamela Dugdale

sayings on love for wedding ceremony

When I am With You

Excerpt from ‘When I am with you’ by Rumi

When I am with you, we stay up all night.
When you’re not here, I can’t go to sleep.
Praise God for these two insomnias!
And the difference between them.

The minute I heard my first love story
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.

Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere.
They’re in each other all along.


rumi wedding ceremony poem

True Love

Love is generous without need.  It is fulfilling in itself.  It is courageous. 
Love offers kindness with no requirement for return.

True Love is trustworthy.
No matter what happens, we can still love.
