The Tradition of Wedding Blessings and Prayers
The tradition and custom of Marriage Blessings and Prayers goes back to the very earliest times when these special prayers represented wishes for the future happiness of the bride and groom. We have included the words to many traditional marriage blessings and prayers which associated with many religions and cultures and from different countries. Wedding Blessings and prayers are associated with wishes for good fortune in a new marriage. These online, free words in our Marriage Blessing and prayers collection may be printed and used to create a personalised book of blessings or prayers to be added to a Prayer Book.
Happy is the bride that rain falls on
May your mornings bring joy and your evenings bring peace.
May your troubles grow few as your blessings increase.
May the saddest day of your future
Be no worse than the happiest day of your past.
May your hands be forever clasped in friendship
And your hearts joined forever in love.
Your lives are very special,
God has touched you in many ways.
May his blessings rest upon you
And fill all your coming days.
We swear by peace and love to stand,
Heart to heart and hand to hand.
Hark, O Spirit, and hear us now,
Confirming this our Sacred Vow
