what does the priest say during a wedding ceremony before the couple says their vows?

  • Our’s said the following. . . I pieced together paragraphs of what I wanted him to say from various examples I found on the internet. . .

    “We are gathered together on this beautiful afternoon to share with Senae and Matt as they exchange vows of their everlasting love.

    Who gives this woman to be married to this man?

    ((Senae’s dad: “Her Mother & I” He places Senae’s hand in Matt’s & is seated))

    As Senae and Matt take their vows today, we are privileged to witness the joyous love of a new family — a family that will be nourished and nurtured through the devotion of two separate individuals growing together through the common bonds of love.

    May their marriage bring them the peace, joy, comfort and contentment that is known in the hearts of all God’s children. And may Matt and Senae both look forward to each new season of their marriage — just as the world looks forward to each new season of the year. For all seasons bring with them their own special moments and memories.

    An essential requirement of a good marriage is a strong bond of real friendship and trust. Senae and Matt, your love for each other will grow deeper with every passing day, but it’s important to remember that your love stands on a foundation of genuine, mutual affection and respect for each other. To truly LOVE another person is to be willing to accept both their strong points, and their weak points, with equal measures of understanding and respect.

    The vows you are about to exchange, will serve as a verbal representation of the non-verbal emotions that are as real as any thing that can be seen, heard or touched.

    For it is not the words that you will speak today that will bond you together as one — but the strength of the love and commitment found deep within your souls.

    ((Let us pray . . .))

    At this time, I’ll ask you, Matt, and you, Senae, to face each other & take each other’s hands.

    Matt, will you take Senae to be your wife, your partner in life and your one true love? Will you cherish her friendship and love her today, tomorrow and forever? Will you trust and honor her, laugh with her and cry with her? Will you be faithful through good times and bad, in sickness and in health as long as you both shall live?

    ((Matt answers: “I will”))

    Senae, will you take Matt to be your husband, your partner in life and your one true love? Will you cherish his friendship and love him today, tomorrow and forever? Will you trust and honor him, laugh with him and cry with him? Will you be faithful through good times and bad, in sickness and in health as long as you both shall live?

    ((Senae answers: “I will”))”

    RE:

    what does the priest say during a wedding ceremony before the couple says their vows?

  • I was a bridesmaid at my boyfriend’s sister’s wedding. The church that they got married in required them to attend a counseling session with the pastor before the ceremony to make sure they were getting married for the right reasons and understood what it meant. The pastor asked them questions like what do you love about the other person, what annoys you, etc.

    Before beginning the official ceremony the pastor explained the counseling session and began this speech that told all the goofy things that they loved about each other. Like “Mike admires that Robin would argue with a cement wall if it meant getting her way” or “Robin loves that Mike is incapable of saying ‘no’ anytime he’s asked to give to charity.” Some things were goofy, some were serious but it was ultimately really sweet because it gave a lot of insight into why they loved each other and how they fit together. The pastor did a good job of not crossing the line by saying anything too wicked. It was really cute and made everyone both laugh and cry.

  • It varies from religion to religion, but the sentiment is usually the same, just the words are different.

    Here is the Episcopal wedding service which was what church we were married in

    Hey, nice to meet you again! Priest: “Do you take ___ as your lawful wife/husband, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and cherish until death do you part?” Bride/Groom: “I do” Bride/Groom: “I take this ring as a sign of my love and faithfulness in the name of the father, the son and the holy spirit.” ” Or: Priest: “___, will you take ___ here present, for your lawful wedded wife/husband according to the rite of our Holy Mother, the Catholic Church?” (“I will”) Bride/Groom Repeat: “I, ___ take you, ___ for my wife/husband, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part.” Bride/Groom: “With this ring I thee wed, and pledge thee my troth?” The verbal exchange of Catholic wedding vows between the bride and groom are actually spread out over the middle three rites in a sixteen-step process. These three are: The Nuptials, the Solemn Promise, and the Blessing and Exchange of Rings. During the rite of the Nupitals, the priest asks the bride and groom individually if they have come of their own free will to give themselves to the other in marriage. He then asks if they will honor and love one another as husband and wife for the rest of their lives, and if they will accept children from God lovingly and bring them up according to the law of Christ and his Church. The couple answers each question in the affirmative. For the Solemn Promise, the priest asks the couple to join their right hands and declare their consent before God and the Church. They then take their wedding vows after which the priest blesses them, joins them together in marriage, and recites a second blessing: “May the Lord in His goodness strengthen your consent and fill you both with His blessings. What God has joined together, let no man put asunder.” The priest then blesses the wedding rings as symbols of deep faith and peace, and the bride and groom exchange them with a promise of unconditional love and fidelity. There are many other details of the ceremony, but as with any tradition, the spoken promises between the betrothed couple are the heart, soul and essence of the Catholic wedding ceremony. Even within a traditional framework such as that of the Church, it is possible to choose the presentation of your Catholic wedding vows to best suit you. 😀

  • It’s depends upon their mentality..

  • ” If anyone here has any reasons as to why these two should not be joined in Holy Matrimony, let him speak now or forever hold his peace

  • Repeat after me……
