Wedding Thoughts

While Dave and I are still mulling whether or not to have a mass + wedding service wedding, we're still enjoying planning the readings and songs during the service. I was reminded of this verse while reading The Grapes of Wrath, but I thought it would also be something lovely for a wedding service (or playbill? invitation? decorative plaque?):

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?

Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

-Ecclesiastes 4: 9-12
