Unique and Interesting Wedding Ceremony Scripts

An e-mail from a 2000dollarwedding kindred spirit gave me the idea to create a resource list of unique and interesting wedding ceremony scripts. Creating your own (or even revising one provided by your officiant) can be a daunting task. A little inspiration can go a long way. I'll add to this list as links are mentioned in the comments section. Please, help a girl out! I had trouble finding a lot. If you want to e-mail me your script and have me upload it and link to it, let me know!
  1. Sara & Matt of 2000 Dollar Wedding
  2. Ariel & Andreas of Offbeat Bride
  3. Kat & Justin of Weddingbee
  4. Jen & Shell
  5. Peonies & The Boy of Peonies and Polaroids
  6. Katie & Paul of A Backyard Wedding
  7. Hope & Ben of hippie dippie bebe

I think that peonies & polaroids has a bit of their ceremony up on her blog. I think its split into a few posts, but here is one of them.

Oh thank you! I'm just starting on this part (um, hello important!) and need all the inspiration I can find.

Hands down this has been the most fun and rewarding part of our planning. I don't have plans to post ours at any point, that's something I think I want to keep personal. But, I built it by cobbling together bits of music, prayers, and text that I knew we wanted, ritual my parents suggested, and in no small part readings that Amanda had pulled together for my "Words To Read When You Wed" series. Then, because we are having a Jewish wedding, I started fitting those things into the Jewish wedding framework, making changes as needed. I loved it. It came together in one afternoon, in the end. Our ceremony, it has to be said, is twice to three times as long as these. 40 minutes maybe?

Anyway, it's great that you are pulling together resources for people. My words of wisdom are gather inspiration as you go, and then when you start collaging it together, it will be pretty smooth...

this will be CRAZY helpful. I'm going to put links up on my site to yours. This is the REAL stuff - the stuff that matters to me more than my flowers and cake topper (though if you read my site, you'd see the ridiculous amount of entries devoted to cake toppers and question that statement entirely).

thanks for sharing these intimate and special scripts with your readers Sara.

Thank you for compiling this list! I have starred it on my reader so I can check back. My partner and I are getting married in about four months and have started working on the ceremony. His father is conducting the ceremony but we are writing it. Being non religious, it has been hard to find symbolic rituals or wording that does not tie in religion. It's very helpful to see what others are doing!

Thank you so much! Your site helped me find the perfect wording for the acknowledgements of those who don't share equal rights. I looked and looked, and the vows from Kat and Justin's wedding summed it up perfectly. This is so helpful, and such a relief. Thank you!
