If you have to officiate the wedding of your best friend and you do not know where to start. If you would like to say some words at the funeral of your grandfather, but language has never been your favorite subject at school. Or if would you like to thank your guests for their presence at your party and you are not able to write more than two sentences… Words to say is your solution. We write wedding readings for every kind of ceremony: religious or civil weddings, anniversaries, funerals and memorial services, parties or for every other occasion in which you have to dedicate some lines to someone. We compose ceremony guide notes, vows, speeches or dedications, in prose or in verse; we select poems, songs or other readings that are appropriate for any moment; and if talking in public is not your thing, we also preside civil ceremonies.
As officiants we offer the coordination of one of the most special moments of the celebration. We combine the personalized script with the music, include the participants and harmonize everything to make it fit within the general atmosphere of the venue. The sweet tone of our voices and our dedication, together with the personal content of the script, will move everybody in the room.
Civil Wedding Ceremony Notes
As opposed to religious ceremonies, the civil ones are less formal and the guide notes to follow can be perfectly customized, especially, if the officiant is a professional master of ceremonies, a friend or a family member. In the last cases, it is possible that the person who is responsible for leading the ceremony feels lost during the writing process. So, that is why we offer the complete composition of unique and customized guide notes for all couples. To write them, we base the lines on your own history and we take into account the wedding style. In form of a letter, story, movie or TV show, it is up to you! We can also help you including different rituals, such as the light ceremony –also known as the one with the candles-, or the rose, tie or sand ceremony; and search for customs of other cultures or even invent new practices. Whatever you want! And do not forget that the selection of music, readings and poems or the intervention of family and friends make your ceremony more personal!
Religious Wedding Ceremony Notes
Religious ceremonies, in this case the catholic ones, are characterized by the rigidity of its form and contents, especially if, besides the sacrament, it comprises a mass. However, it is possible to select your own readings and the parish priest will certainly be delighted if you participate in the ceremony with your personal choice of Bible passages. In the same way, in some churches, they allow the intervention of friends and family with emotional speeches Would you like us to help you to make your wedding a bit more different than others?
