Wedding Vows

WEDDING VOWS

There is no legally required wording for wedding vows, so couples may feel free to choose from the wordings in the many ceremonies on this site, adjust those wordings to fit the marriage commitments appropriate to their relationship, or to write their own wedding vows.

As an alternative, this section of the site offers other vow possibilities for consideration.

WEDDING VOWS #1

Knowing in my heart
that you will be
my constant friend,
my faithful partner in life,
and my one true love.

I promise to love you
without reservation,
that I will honor and respect you,
provide for your needs
as best I can,
protect you from harm,
comfort you in times of distress,
grow with you in mind and spirit,
always be open and honest with you,
and cherish you
for as long as we both shall live…

WEDDING VOWS #2

© Ray Cross (As I see marriage)

On this, our wedding day, my dear,
I pledge to you
my undying love and devotion.
I know that time will bring changes
but they are changes
that I want to experience with you
for the rest of our lives.
I want to build
more and more beauty
into who you are.

As we age together,
it is my whole-hearted objective
to add to the beauty that I see this day
To your visage in which I delight,
I would like to add laugh lines.
I want to fill your eyes
with the sparkle of delight,
to so treasure you
that your mouth will smile as we meet,
I aspire to honour you
such that you hands
will always reach out to mine,
and clasp mine in trust.
May your feet always delight
to walk step by step with me.

Life is a builder of memories.
In love, my dear,
I pledge to you
my every effort
to make your whole life easier
and filled with greater value.
Because of the commitment
we have made this day,
I am determined
to make the rest of our life
the best of our life.

 

WEDDING VOWS #3

For the longest time
I thought that marriage
was just the next step
in any relationship.
I imagined that love
was made up
or just found in movies.
It wasn’t until you
that I truly understood
the meaning behind,
“You Know When You Know”.
From the moment we first met,
you distracted me,
challenged me
and captured me
in ways that no one ever has.
I have fallen in love
with you numerous times
without reservation
and continue falling more in love with you
as each day passes.
I promise to be true to you,
to always dream with you,
to share in all the crazy moments
that life has to offer.
I promise to always kiss you,
and show you how much I love you everyday.
You make me laugh;
you finish my sentences
and think the same way as I.
Even when we argue,
I can never stay mad at you for long.
I know we will always find strength in each other
and continue to grow as one.
You are my personal comedian,
my best friend,
the light at the end of my tunnel
and my partner in crime…
the true Bonnie to my Clyde.
I could not picture a life without you in it,
or a moment without you.
I can’t wait to make the rest of our life
the best of our life.

WEDDING VOWS #4

I have the great honor and gift
of truly knowing
and completely loving you,
I admire you,
I adore you
and I fully believe in you.
You have come into my life
and touched not only my heart
but the deepest part of my soul.
You have a way of telling me
you love me just by looking into my eyes.
Your soul is as old as mine,
your heart is as pure as gold,
your smile is infectious,
your humour is like no other
and you can make me laugh
when you’re not even trying to be funny.
You manage to find a new way
to impress me every day.
Together we are this unstoppable force
that can accomplish anything.
You are my favourite movie,
my favourite song,
my favourite kiss,
my favourite phone call,
your arms are my favourite place in the world
and we together are my favourite love story.
I love the way you look at me
like no one ever has,
I love the way you challenge me
like no one ever has
but most of all I love
the way you love me
like no one ever has.
You have taught me to trust,
how to let someone in
and what it truly means
to fall completely in love with someone.
You see the world like no one else does,
you take everything in
and appreciate all the little things,
and you inspire me to be a better person.
You made me realize
that if nothing else ever worked out in our lives,
I would still be happy
because you loved me.
I promise to never run from the bad,
I promise to stay by your side forever,
I promise to be the best wife and mom that I can be,
I promise to respect you
and always remember
that this is a once in a life time kind a love,
I promise to spend the next 70 years loving you
the way you deserve to be loved.
Lastly, I promise to be a person
guided by love and not by fear
and I will adventure with you
into the wild of this world
as your safe place,
your best friend,
your soul mate
and I will love you
into the next life and beyond.
Thank you for making my life
and this day
better than I could have ever imagined it to be.

A love like ours
happens once only in a lifetime.
You were a miracle to me,
the one who was everything
I had ever dreamed of,
the one I thought existed
only in my imagination.

And when you came into my life,
I realized that
what I had always thought was happiness, wasn’t.
It in no way compares to the joy
that loving you and being loved by you

into my heart
and into my soul.

You are a part
of everything I think
and do and feel,
and with you by my side,
I believe that anything is possible.

I love the twinkle I see in your eyes
when you look at me.

I delight in your sense of humour;
And I thank you for accepting me
just as I am.
With all my mind, body, heart and soul,
I respect you
and I love you.

You are God’s precious gift to me,
my springtime, my hope and my joy.
I _(Bride)__, choose you _(Groom).
as my best friend,
my love for life and beyond.

I promise you my deepest love,
my fullest devotion,
my tenderest care,
through the pressures of the present
and the uncertainties of the future,
I promise to be faithful to you.
I promise to love you,
to commit to you,
and to support you.
I pledge to respect
your unique talents and abilities,
to lend you strength
for all of your dreams.
You have shown me
what love feels like
and for that I thank you.
You are everything I need
and at this moment
I know all of my prayers
have been answered
and that all of my dreams
have come true.
I thank God for you _(Groom)_:
for all of your love
and constant friendship.
I know that our love
is blessed from above
and I promise to be
here for you and with you
forever and always.
From this day forward,
you shall not walk alone.
As I have given you my hand to hold,
I give you my life to keep.
May our hearts and very breath
become one as we unite this day
as husband and wife.
How blessed I am
to be able to say
that you are mine,
to be able to love and cherish you
for the rest of time.
It is an honour
to become your wife…
I love you _(Groom)_.
