Groom, since you are asking Bride to marry you, take this cord, which represents the bond between you, and tie the knot which signifies your intentions for your gathered friends and family to see.
Groom ties the knot and hands the rope to Bride.
Bride, will you tighten the knot to represent how you will hold his heart tight to yours.
Bride tightens knot and hands rope to Officiant. Officiant holds knot up for all to see.
I see by this knot before me that you both share the same intentions concerning this relationship, that you will hold each other’s heart tight, and form a strong bond from here to forever.
I do not claim to be the original author of this script. I am sharing it like this to make it easier for anyone to use.
