Dude Wedding Ceremony
« on: June 08, 2015, 03:10:12 PM »
Here is a Dudeist wedding ceremony I wrote for a friend of mine.

Greeting
Friends and Family, we are gathered and abide here today to bear witness to the union of the hearts and souls of________ and ________, or... in the parlance of our times, we are here to watch these Dudes get hitched!

Declaration Of Intent
Now, before I lose my train of thought. _______, _______, you stand before me having requested that, in the beautiful traditions of Dudes throughout history, I marry you today without compulsion but with joy and love.

Do you both do this abidingly and without being all uptight?

{THE COUPLE ANSWERS}

**Promises (These should be personalized by the couple)
Now, if any of you out there have any issue with this union, just zip it, OK! You?re too late. All the paperwork is already signed.

_______, please repeat after me.
_______, my special _______ --- I promise that I will love you --- and abide with you for all the days of my life--- even when you are seriously messin with my vibe --- or busting my balls.---I promise that when you are sick --- I will make you soup --- be it canned, or from a pouch --- I promise that while I may, from time to time, look--- I will never touch another person--- so long as we both agree to be exclusive.

_______, your turn.
_______, my special _______ --- I promise that I will love you--- and abide with you for all the days of my life --- even when you are seriously messin with my vibe --- or busting my balls. --- I promise that I will hold back your hair when you are praying to the porcelain --- and if necessary clean up if you miss. --- I promise that while I may, from time to time, look--- I will never touch another person--- so long as we both agree to be exclusive.


Prayer
I will now lead you dudes in a prayer of sorts. As I do this, I ask that everyone close their eyes and, in accordance with your own beliefs, wish strength, joy, peace, and undying love upon this union.

_______, _______, take each others hands and look into each others eyes. I want you to fully observe the love and happiness that you are feeling in this place at this moment. Really let it sink into your hearts and minds. Now I want you to think about what your life together will be like in 20 years. Where are you? What are you doing? We all know that your visions are not identical, but complementary. John Lennon once said, ?A dream that you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality? Well man, your new reality begins right here, right now.
 ABIDE!

Thank you. You all may now open your eyes.

Words Of Wisdom
A man much wiser than myself once said, ?Sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes, the bear, he eats you.?

Marriage is a joyful yet difficult journey, and the success of a marriage is as dependent on mutual support as much as it is upon Love.

You each bring your own strengths and weaknesses to this union. Always remember that you must support and grow the strengths, goals, and ambitions of your partner as well as your own. You must also strive to be a source of comfort and resilience to support your partner's weaknesses.

Difficult and easy bring about each other
Long and short reveal each other
High and low support each other
Music and voice harmonize each other
Front and back follow each other

As High and Low support each other, so must you complement one another. 

As music and voice harmonize each other, so each of you must daily strive to become more than the sum of your parts - and ensure that your relationship is always of the highest priority.

As front and back follow each other, so must you realize that this relationship is a journey - not a destination.  Never forget that, in this journey, you are equal partners.

In order to gain wisdom; you must seek to gain further understanding of yourselves, and each other,  with each passing day. This will ensure that your love continues to grow. 

Then, no matter what trials and tribulations the world throws in your path-- together-- with your combined strength, and love -- you will always be prepared to eat the bear!


The Rings
_______, _______, do you have a token or symbol of abiding together that you wish to exchange?

{RINGS TO THE DUDE PRESIDING}

These rings are the outward and visible sign of an inward and abiding Love - A symbol to all others of this unbreakable union.

_______, please place the ring on the finger of _______  and repeat after me.

I give you this ring as a constant reminder--- of the promises we exchanged here today. ---As you receive this ring, ---receive my promise--- to abide always and forever with you.

_______, please place the ring on the finger of _______  and repeat after me.

I give you this ring as a constant reminder--- of the promises we exchanged here today. ---As you receive this ring, ---receive my promise--- to abide always and forever with you.

**Signing Of Legalities
I now ask that, in front of all of these dudes, you make this union legally binding by signing the marriage certificate.

{SIGN IT}

Blessing
May you be poor in misfortune
Rich in blessings
Slow to argue and quick to forgive
But, rich or poor, quick or slow
May you know nothing but happiness from this day forward

Declaration Of Marriage/Kiss
_______and _______, you have exchanged your promises, given and received tokens, and signed all the appropriate documentation. In harmony with the laws of the state of _______ and by the power vested in me by The Church Of The Latter Day Dude, I hereby pronounce you married Dudes!

Now seal this deal with a kiss and lets party!

First Introduction
Dudes in attendance, it is my honor and privilege to be the first to introduce to you ______________!


**These two are conflicting. You have to choose which one you want to use and omit or change the other.
