Wedding Ceremony Scripts

The wedding ceremony marks a momentous occasion when a couple publicly states their commitment to one another. But a wedding ceremony without an officiant wedding script is like a Broadway show without music – if you decide to wing it, you're probably going to have a bad time (and so will the audience).

Creating a wedding script is generally the job of the officiant. If that's you, then listen up! There are numerous questions to consider when writing a wedding script and thinking about how to officiate. What goes into a wedding ceremony? How long should it be? What are the essential legal parts to include? How can you customize it for the couple? Considering all of these variables, writing a wedding script to use as an officiant can be a daunting task – especially if you've never done it before.

That's why we've built a resource center around wedding scripts for officiants, featuring sample wedding ceremonies and plenty of different wedding script examples. On this page, you'll find two fantastic resources for creating a memorable and legally-binding wedding ceremony script you can use to officiate.

  1. Our innovative Wedding Ceremony Script Generator, which can help you generate a unique, custom wedding script for officiants and couples in just a few clicks.
  2. An extensive archive of sample wedding scripts – any of which you are welcome to use as-is, or lean on for inspiration as you create your own.
