Today, Groom and Bride have chosen to “Tie the Knot” to symbolize the two of them coming together as one. They will be making the “true lovers knot” which is the strongest there is; it will not break, and will only become stronger when under pressure. The rope itself will break before the knot comes undone.
May we now have the cords? [Mother of the bride and groom will bring the cords to the front, present the cords to their child and give us kisses & hugs]
These two cords represent your past, your own individual and separate lives before today.
[As BRIDE & GROOM start to tie the knot as OFFICIANT continues]
As you intertwine your pieces, you are joining your two lives into one, representing the present. The finished knot symbolizes your future, and how your love and marriage will continue to be strong despite any trials life may throw your way.
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.
