Preface of Marriage

From the Book of Divine Worship - Holy Matrimony - Rite Two.

At the Communion, it is appropriate that the newly married couple receive Communion first, after the ministers.

In place of the usual Postcommunion Prayer, the following is said:

O God, the giver of all that is true and lovely and gracious: We give you thanks for binding us together in these holy mysteries of the Body and Blood of your Son Jesus Christ. Grant that by your Holy Spirit,   and  , now joined in Holy Matrimony, may become one in heart and soul, live in fidelity and peace, and obtain those eternal joys prepared for all who love you; for the sake of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

As the wedding party leaves the church, a hymn, psalm, or anthem may be sung; or instrumental music may be played.
