Vows are an excellent way to personalize your ceremony. Some couples write their own from start to finish. Others might pick from any of the options listed below. Others still pick and choose from various selections to develop just the right mix of words. Once you have developed the selection that is just right for you, you have the option to either read your vows to one another or follow the traditional ‘repeat after me’ route.
“I take you to be my husband.
In your heart I have found my love.
With you I am whole and alive.
I am yours, and you are mine – of this I am certain.
I promise to give you my hand and my heart and I promise to always lead with love.
I promise to remain by your side regardless of what trouble befalls you, and I promise to remain steadfast and true for all the days of my life.”
“I take you __________to be my partner for life
I promise above all else to live in truth with you
And to communicate fully and fearlessly,
I give you my hand and my heart
As a sanctuary of warmth and peace
And pledge my love, devotion, faith and honor
As I join my life to yours.”
“I, ___, take you, ___, to be my wedded husband/wife.
To have and to hold, from this day forward.
For better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health.
To love and to cherish, till death do us part.”
“On this day,
I give you my heart,
That I will walk with you,
Hand in hand,
Wherever our journey leads us,
Living, learning, loving,
“I, _____, choose you _____,
To be no other than yourself,
Loving what I know of you, trusting what I do not yet know.
I will respect you as an individual, a partner, and an equal.
I promise to laugh with you when times are good, and endure with you
when they are bad.
I will always adore, honor and encourage you.
You are my best friend, and I will love you always.”
“I promise to laugh with you, cry with you, and grow with you.
I will love you when we are together and when we are apart.
I promise to support your dreams and to respect our differences, and to love you and be by your side through all the days and nights of our lives.”
