The Meaning of Your Wedding Rings
Wedding rings have a lot of implied meanings. Like, they mean you are married! (duh!) They mean you are off the market so people in bars should not hit on you, things like that. With that in mind, during your wedding ceremony, you don't have to say anything about the rings at all. You don't have to exchange or wear a ring to be married, we don't have to talk about them, you don't have to say anything as you place it on your partners finger. You can just exchange rings. BUT, your rings may have meaning for you or you may like some of these words included in your wedding ceremony, so choose and enjoy!
I'm also a big fan of the ring tattoo...you do you!
Elopement Ring Meaning Option 1
The roundness of the wedding ring is said to represent eternity and to symbolize unending love, and devotion and that the couple is forever united in the marriage bond, in this physical life and the next.
Elopement Ring Meaning Option 2
These rings are symbols of your marriage vows, the ties that bind you together as husband and wife.
Elopement Ring Meaning Option 3
The wedding ring's circular shape reflects the unending power of love – a force with no beginning and no end. You should wear these rings proudly and let them remind you each day of your commitment to one another.
Elopement Ring Meaning Option 4
For generations, the passage of two people into the state of marriage has been marked by the exchange of rings. Rings hold deep symbolic meaning. The circle is an ancient symbol representing notions of totality, wholeness, perfection, and the infinite. It implies an idea of movement and symbolizes the cycle of time. It symbolizes both the potential and the completion, the eternal cycle of life. Even as these circles, these rings, hold universal significance, they are also personally significant to the two of you. They are a constant reminder of the bond between a married couple. A visible, tangible symbol of their commitment to each other. Let these rings be a sign that love has substance as well as soul, a present as well as a past, and that this person has been chosen, this person walks not alone through life.
Elopement Ring Meaning Option 5
May these rings symbolize your inherent wholeness and unity with one another, giving you the strength to happily honor your commitments to each other. May they remind you that marriage is not a destination but a journey with no beginning and no end, just a moment-to-moment opportunity to love and be loved to the best of your ability.
Elopement Ring Meaning Option 6
The rings are the universal symbols of marriage. They mean many things. From now on you will wear these rings, and they will remind you... They will remind you of the endless circle that they are. Like love, there is no beginning and no end. They will remind you daily that you are married. Sometimes they will remind you of the commitment that you have made - for better or worse. But may they always remind you that there is one other person in the world that has pledged to love you forever, through thick and through thin, and with all that they have.

I am open to marrying any couple. It is my goal to meet each couple where they are and help them to have a positive wedding experience. In order to meet you where you are, I approach every wedding with an open mind - I don’t know anything about you until you tell me and that’s only if you choose to tell me. Wedding ceremony scripts have been written for years for brides and grooms. Now, bride and bride or groom and groom are very common. Some couples are choosing to forego traditional gender roles altogether and are using the terms spouse or partner. If you have made the choice to use non-traditional pronouns, please let me know, and I will be happy to honor your preferences. Any wedding ceremony script can be changed to reflect those personal preferences.
