Opening Remarks

Officiant: We have come together here in celebration of the joining together of (enter bride's name here)and (enter groom's name here). Others would ask, at this time, who gives the bride in marriage, but, I ask simply if she comes of her own will and if she has her family's blessing. (Bride), is it true that you come of your own free will and accord? Bride: Yes, it is true. Officiant: With whom do you come and whose blessings accompany you. Bride's attendant: She comes with her father, and her mother, and is accompanied by all of her family's blessings.
