Among the many things my mom did for me on my wedding day, she was able to give me a very special surprise that I will cherish forever. After helping me get my dress on, she lifted the train and showed me something that immediately brought us both to tears. She had a scripture embroidered on the inside of my train in blue. During one of our busy wedding planning days I mentioned to my mom that 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 was a verse that my fiancé and I referred to often.
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 preserves. Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8
I absolutely love this special keepsake from my mom. I still remember walking down the aisle and thinking about the scripture embroidered in my dress. I hope to one day do the same for my daughter and carry on the tradition that my mom started.
There are many other ways to incorporate a scripture into your wedding attire or décor. I’ve seen a few Brides get creative and paint a verse on the bottom of their wedding shoes or on the ribbon wrapped around their bouquet.
I love these ideas I found on Pinterest, too! Walking down the aisle and seeing one of your favorite bible verses is a beautiful way to start your journey with your new husband.
You could also share one verse or several verses with your guests as they walk down the aisle to their seats.
Whether you chose to display a scripture for everyone or simply keep it somewhere for yourself, I am confident it will be a special addition to your wedding day that you will cherish forever!
