Engagement Announcement Verses

People are often looking for engagement announcement verses because they'd like to include something that captures a feeling or sentiment.

For those who consider marriage a sacred and religious act, bible verses are often most appropriate.

For others, spirituality or love is more in keeping with what they had in mind. While others still, want something romantic, or funny, or just plain clever.

All are appropriate in their own way. The point is that the verses that can be included in an engagement announcement are as varied as the people making the announcement.

So let's take a look at some of the more commonly used verses.

Bible Verses For Engagement Announcements

Let's start out with some of the more commonly used Bible verses:

  1. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast,
    it is not proud. It is not rude,
    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 perseveres.
    Corinthians 13:4-7
  2. Two are better than one,
    because they have a good return for their work:
    If one falls down,
    his friend can help him up.
    But pity the man who falls
    and has no one to help him up!

    Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
    But how can one keep warm alone?
    Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
  3. Place me like a seal over your heart,
    like a seal on your arm;
    for love is as strong as death,
    its jealousy unyielding as the grave.
    It burns like blazing fire,
    like a mighty flame.

    Many waters cannot quench love;
    rivers cannot wash it away.
    If one were to give
    all the wealth of his house for love,
    it would be utterly scorned.
    Song of Solomon 8:6-7
  4. Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another.

    Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
    Colossians 3:12-19
  5. Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
    John 3:18
