Wedding Reception Prayer Ideas for the Dinner Prayer at Your Wedding Reception
Here are some Wedding Reception Prayer Ideas to use for the Dinner Prayer at your Wedding Reception.
If you have a minister, priest, etc... performing your wedding and you have invited him/her to the reception (which is customary to do) then they should be able to prepare their own prayer for your wedding dinner.
If you are not having such a person attend your reception than you can choose to have a parent, best man, maid of honor or any other person say your wedding reception prayer. Check out the prayer examples below.
P.S. Don't forget about wedding reception cards like this one. You want all of your guests to know where the reception is!

Here are a few prayer examples:
Wedding Reception Dinner Prayer
We pray to thank you for the joining today of (bride's name) and (groom's name) into marriage. We also pray for you to continue to bless them and their marriage, everyday, for the rest of their lives.
Father we pray to thank you for all of the guests that could be with us tonight (or change to today) to celebrate in this new union and that you will bless all of them as well.
And now Father, we thank you for the food we are about to eat and that you are always there to help nourish our bodies as well as our souls.
In Jesus name we pray...Amen
Wedding Reception Prayer Two (on the lighter side, perfect for best man to use, improvise where changes are needed)
Thank you for the marriage today of (Bride's name) and (Groom's Name). Thank you for finally helping (Groom's name) to see the light and ask (Bride's name) to be his wife.
We were all beginning to worry that he would be a bachelor for the rest of his life but you came through and made him see your ways. We thank you for that... I know his mother and father thank you for that...because he's finally left the house.
And Dear Father, thank you for the boys nights out that I know (Bride's Name) will let (Groom's Name) attend with his friends, not to mention the Sunday Football games they will invite us to, over at their house.
Father, please continue to bless this marriage everyday for the rest of their lives and help them to both be patient and forgiving on the days when they feel like they are not so blessed. And, one last thing, Father...please let (Groom's name) still remember to put the toilet seat down from this day forward...it's for his own good.
Thank you Father for everything and all of this food we are about to eat. Amen
Wedding Reception Prayer Three
Dear Heavenly Father, we ask you to bless this food that we are about to eat. We also ask for your blessings for (bride's name) and (groom's name) today as they go forth in marriage. Please watch over them and continue to guide their steps in the right directions and keep them in love until the end of time. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.

The Marriage Prayer Reads:
Lord, help us to remember when we first met and the strong love that grew between us. Help us to work that love into practical things so nothing may divide us. We ask for words both kind and loving, and for hearts always ready to ask forgiveness as well as to forgive. Lord we put our marriage into Your hands. Amen.
