Wedding Ceremony Scripts
Everyone is familiar with the "I do's" of a wedding ceremony, two little words with a whole lot of impact. But “I do” is hardly the only important line in a wedding ceremony script – and the rest of the ceremony requires attention, too. So, what else goes into a wedding ceremony script? Should it be long or short? What part should you say when?
These are essential questions for the officiant to answer before the couple tie the knot, because wedding officiants are generally in charge of writing a wedding script for the ceremony.
Let the resources on this page guide you in how to officiate with the best wedding script. Even if you fancy yourself a great writer, conjuring up a wedding officiant script out of nowhere is easier said than done, especially if you've never written one before.
Below you'll find our innovative wedding script generator tool – which can create helpful wedding script templates, as well as generate custom ceremonies. We also have an extensive collection of sample wedding ceremonies that you can choose from to find the perfect officiating wedding script.
In advance of the ceremony, we recommend sitting down with the couple and finding out their particular hopes and expectations are. That information will prove invaluable as you work to finalize the wedding script to officiate with.
