Our Top Ten Favorite Scriptures to Use for Wedding Reception Ideas

You can use these Scriptures on signs, wedding favors, reception centerpieces, wedding invitations, and more. 

1 Corinthians 13:4-8: “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.”

1 Corinthians 16:14: “Do everything in love.”

1 Peter 4:8: “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.”

Romans 12:10: “Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.”

Song of Solomon 3:4: “I found the one my heart loves.”

Philippians 1:7: “It is right for me to feel this way about all of you, since I have you in my heart.”

Colossians 3:14: “And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.”

Ruth 1:16: “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God.”

Ecclesiastes 4:9: “Two are better than one.”
