While lavish celebrations and grand receptions are fun, it’s important to remember that weddings are first and foremost a ceremonial commitment between two people. If the ceremony is taking place in a church or being officiated by a priest or pastor, there is also an understanding that God plays an important role in the couple’s marriage and in their lives.
If you’re shopping for a religious couple and looking to tie their faith into their wedding gift, there are quite a few avenues you can take. From home decor items, to Christian inspired artwork, to wedding Bibles, there are so many great options.
We’ve rounded up our top 10 picks below for the best Christian wedding gifts. If none of these are quite what you’re looking for, you can keep shopping religious gifts here.

This chain is 28″ long, made with Swarovski crystal beads and 24k gold. This design is just one of many beautiful options available. You can shop them all here.
