Finding the Right Christian Wedding Scripture

Getting married is one of the most exciting times of your life. Your wedding invitations are a great way to express your love and commitment to each other, and especially to God. Christian wedding invitations should be decorated not only with doves and laces, but also with a  meaningful scripture from the Bible.

Why use wedding scriptures?

Everything about your wedding represents who you and your future spouse are; from  the clothes, shoes, and  the motif of your wedding.  All these constitute your projected self-image and identity. Your wedding invitation is also a marker of how joyful you are regarding your upcoming wedding. This is why it’s so important to use scriptures, to emphasize your beliefs on why you are actually getting married. 

Choosing the right scripture

There are two ways that you would be able to locate the perfect scripture for your invitations and other printed matter associated with your wedding. You can look for the scriptures yourself or you can ask a pastor or priest to help you with the scripture search. An ordained priest, pastor, minister or equivalent in your community has a special knowledge of the Holy Bible because the holy scriptures are their foremost source of religious, moral and ethical knowledge.  With their help, you can narrow down specific books in the Holy Bible that contain the scriptures. A good example would be the Book of Solomon, which contains many, many verses regarding the love between persons. 

Scriptures of religious praise 

In your search for Christian wedding scriptures you may notice that many verses are about praising the Lord and may not focus specifically on marriage or the wedding ceremonies.  It’s important to remember first and foremost, that every good thing we do is done in the Lord’s name, and all good things do come from God. With this in mind, you can also make use of verses or chapters that praise our Lord; these would also produce the same message of happiness and joy in your invitations.  Such scriptures would also set the tone and mood of the invitation, and would tell people how important and sacred the ceremony would be for the both of you.  Weddings are a spiritual and joyful experience so have fun in the process finding the right scripture, or when the scripture finds you.
