Civil Basic – Civil

Opening Words:

We have been invited here today to share with ________ and ________ a most important moment in their lives. In the time that they have been together, their love and understanding of each other has grown. Now they have decided to live their lives together as husband and wife. 

________ and ________, you are about to make promises to one another. Today, these vows are beautiful words representing even more beautiful intentions. You will find that as you live these vows over the years, investing your time, your love and your commitment to one another, the happy times of your life will have twice the joy because there will be someone to share them with, and when life gets tough, it will only be half as bad because there will be someone by your side to help carry the burden.

To make your marriage work will take Love. Love should be the core of your marriage; love is the reason you are here.

But it will also take trust – to know in your hearts you want the best for each other.

It will take dedication – to stay open to one another; to learn and grow together even when this is not always easy to do.

It will take faith – to always be willing to go forward to tomorrow, never really knowing what tomorrow will bring.

And it will take commitment – to hold true to the journey you both now pledge to share together.

Pronouncement: 

As you have consented together to be bound to one another in marriage, you have made special promises to each other which have been symbolized by the joining of hands, the exchanging of vows and by the giving and receiving of rings. By the authority vested in me according to the laws of the state of Florida, I now pronounce you husband and wife!

You may kiss the Bride!!
