The Little Prince – Antoine de Saint

It is one of the most wonderful stories in the history of literature. It tells the story of a little prince who finds a rose among millions and for him, it is the most beautiful of all. Without a doubt, a very beautiful text for a civil wedding ceremony .

On the planet of the Little Prince there were always simple flowers that neither took place nor bothered anyone. They appeared and disappeared. But one day a wisp appeared that did not resemble the others, the time and care that was taken before making its first appearance aroused enormous expectation in the Little Prince. She was movingly beautiful, cared for her, watered and sheltered her on cold nights.

One day the Little Prince went on a trip to other planets, one of them. In one of them, after having gone through many difficulties, he found a path that led him to a garden of roses identical to his own. At that moment he discovered that his rose was not unique in the universe, but one more rose, an ordinary rose. Then he realized that with an ordinary rose and three small volcanoes (one perhaps extinct forever), he could not consider himself a great prince. And, lying on the grass, he wept.

After a while, he realized that those roses were not the same as hers and he told them: “They are nothing, nor do they resemble my rose at all. They are very beautiful, but they are empty and no one would give their lives for you. Anyone. Who sees them will undoubtedly believe that my rose is the same as any of you. But she knows herself more important than all, because I have watered her, because she was the one I sheltered with the lantern, because I killed the worms (Except for two or three that became butterflies) and it is her that I have heard complain, praise herself and sometimes even shut up. Because she is my rose, anyway. “

I know that somewhere in the world there is a unique rose, different from all other roses, one whose delicacy, candor and innocence will awaken my heart and soul from its lethargy. That rose exists surrounded by multicolored poppies, filtering everything beautiful through its pearly, crystalline and absolutely beautiful eyes … You (groom’s name) have found your rose, you have it by your side, take care of it, because it is you rose. If someone loves a flower of which there is only one specimen among the millions and millions of stars, it is enough to make him happy when he looks at the stars.

Let’s make a deal – Mario Benedetti

If you ever notice
that I look into your eyes,
and you
recognize a streak of love in mine,
do not think that I am delirious,
just think that you can
count on me.

If other times you find me
sullen for no reason,
don’t think I’m lazy,
you can still count on me.

But let’s make a deal:
I would like to have you, it
is so nice to know that you exist,
one feels alive,
and when I say this,
it is not so that you come running to my aid,
but so that you know that you
can always count on me.

When two souls finally meet – Victor Hugo

An emotional poem that talks about true love. A wonderful text for a civil wedding ceremony .

When at last two souls meet,
who for so long have looked for one another among the crowd,
when they realize that they are couples,
That they understand each other and correspond,
in a word, that they are alike,
then a passionate union arises forever and ever. pure as themselves.

A union that begins on earth and lasts in heaven.
That union is love, authentic love,
as in truth very few men can conceive,
love that is a religion,
that deifies the loved one whose life emanates
from fervor and passion and for whom the
greatest sacrifices are the sweetest joys.

The Art of Marriage – Wilferd Arlan Peterson

Among the different texts for a civil ceremony , you can choose this beautiful poetic composition.

The little things are the big things.
You are never too old to hold your hands.
It’s remembering to say “I love you” at least once a day.

It is never going to sleep angry.
It is never talking to the other just to be condescending;
courtship shouldn’t end with the honeymoon, it
should continue through the years.

It is having a mutual sense of common values ​​and goals.
It is standing together facing the world.
It is to form a circle of love that feeds in the whole family.
It is doing things for the other, not in the attitude of service or sacrifice,
but in the spirit of joy.

It’s speaking words of appreciation and showing
gratitude in thoughtful ways.
It is not expecting the husband to wear a halo or for the wife to have the wings of an angel.
It is not looking for perfection in the other.

It is cultivating flexibility, patience, understanding and a sense of humor.
It is having the ability to forgive and be forgiven.
It is to give the other an area in which they can grow.

It is finding spaces for things of the spirit.
It is a common search for good and beauty.
It is to establish a relationship in which independence is equal, mutual dependence and reciprocal obligations.
It is not only marrying the perfect partner, it is being the perfect partner.

Always the bridge on the other side – Richard Bach

Surely, after listening to this text for a civil ceremony , many of those present cannot help but be moved by these beautiful words. As they will also if you choose them for your romantic texts for wedding invitations . They will touch your heart!

A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys that fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our trustworthy personality comes out and we can be completely honest with who we are; we can be loved for who we are and not for what we pretend to be. Each shows the best part for the other. No matter what is wrong with us, with this person we are safe in our paradise. Our soul mate is someone who shares our yearnings, our sense of direction.

Noa’s Diary – Nicholas Sparks

The texts for civil ceremony say a lot about love and feelings and reflect, like few others, everything you feel for each other.

There are many ways to love each other, you know? But hers was… total. A pure, incredible, hallucinatory love. A special love as there are few. And they knew it. All lovers in the world believe that their love is unique and different, but theirs was. They were made for each other, they had and wanted to merge into one, when they were together time sped up and when they were apart it became eternal. Every kiss, home caress, was a pure naked feeling. They could spend hours looking into each other’s eyes and nothing more, but when they caressed, they kissed… then… there are no words to describe that emotion.

Never marry if not for love – William Penn 

Another magnificent text that you can include among your readings for original civil ceremonies . You are sure to love it!

Never marry if it is not for love; see from your beloved what is adorable. If love is not your main motive, you will wither as soon as boredom grows in the state of marriage and you will lose your promise, seeking pleasures in forbidden places …

Between the man and his woman nothing should rule except love … And love should bring them together, so this is the best way to keep them together.

A husband and wife who love and value each other show it to their children … And they would do that too. Others visibly lose authority in their family due to rebellion with the other, and teach their children what is not natural by their own example. Nothing can be more complete and unreserved.
