Most couples will select certain verses, either biblical, secular, or personalized, to be read during the wedding ceremony.

Often these verses will be based on religious beliefs they both share, or their vision of what their lives will hold.

Many couples are customizing their wedding vows to include special sentiments they feel are important to communicate at this most sacred time. Some couples have decided they prefer to face the congregation while exchanging vows, rather than traditionally facing the altar with their backs to the crowd. Most churches are open to these concepts but some may have certain restrictions – it is best to inquire in advance.
