Borrow this sweet blended family wedding vow idea

When my husband Ryan and I eloped to Audubon Park in NOLA in June of 2019, my daughter is Rebecca was included in our wedding party — and even in our vows! Here’s the blended family vows wording we used in our ceremony

A polyamorous pagan wedding ceremony script with gender-neutral language

This gender-neutral wedding ceremony script includes Pagan and Norse traditions, references to Doctor Who, Stranger In A Strange Land, Star Trek, and Tom Robbins, and more. Plus, a hilarious “we doo-doo” instead of “We do”!

Is this the best gay wedding ceremony script ever?

When Ken and Joe got married, one of their dearest friends officiated the ceremony. Ken told us, “Our friend did such an awesome job — he may have had more people congratulate him on a job well done than we got for getting married!” Now we’re sharing a selection of their gay wedding ceremony script with you…

Super thorough non-religious wedding ceremony script, complete with readings and music suggestions

When Emily & Jack shared their non-religious wedding ceremony script with us, we were blown away by how incredibly thorough it was — if you’re looking for some secular wedding ceremony ideas to steal, this script is full of ’em! 

Handfasting ceremony script with ring exchange and vows

If you’re thinking of doing a handfasting ceremony, this script will give you ideas for your vows and ceremony wording. This ceremony script uses the words bride and groom to reflect Denise and Lee’s wedding, but of course the language could easily be tweaked for a wedding with folks who identify as LGBTQ or nonbinary.

My aggressively atheist non-religious wedding vows and ceremony script

Our wedding ceremony was admittedly what some might call “aggressively atheist,” and my bridesmaids noticed that a few people looked…surprised? I think those who didn’t know us especially well expected we would do what our own parents did and go with something more standard and semi-religious. We certainly are not in peoples faces about our atheism, but we wanted to be VERY clear about who we are and a wedding is a great time to make yourself known. Feel free to steal these atheist wedding vows!
