Many non-religionist or mixed-background couples like to use the the Apache Wedding Prayer in the ceremony as it makes no reference to any god.

The Apache Wedding Prayer is a favorite non-denominational recitation for blessing weddings and vow renewals. Spiritual, intimate, and true, these are the words to the Apache Wedding Prayer:

  • Now you will feel no rain,
    For each of you will be shelter to the other.

    Now you will feel no cold,
    For each of you will be warmth to the other.

    Now there is no more loneliness,
    For each of you will be companion to the other.

    Now you are two bodies,
    But there is one life before you.

    Go now to your dwelling place,
    To enter into the days of your togetherness.
    And may your days be good and long upon the earth.

~ Apache Wedding Prayer Blessing

Note: According to The Economist, "The prayer itself has nothing to do with Apache culture (the prayer was invented for a Hollywood movie called Broken Arrow)."
