Examples of Wedding Vows
Traditional Wedding Vows
“I, (Name), take you (Bride/Groom), to be my (Husband/ Wife), to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish; from this day forward until death do us part.”
“I, (Name), choose you (Bride/Groom) to be my (Husband/ Wife), to respect you in your successes and in your failures, to care for you in sickness and in health, to nurture you, and to grow with you throughout the seasons of life.”
“Groom: With this ring, I thee wed, as a symbol of a love that has neither beginning nor end. I vow a love as pure as the gold within this simple band and a trust and a faithfulness forever.
Bride: With this ring, I thee wed, as a symbol of strength, enduring love and trust. I vow to encircle you with my love and my honor for as long as we both shall live.”
Non Traditional Wedding Vows
“I, (Name), take you, (Bride/Groom), to be my partner, loving what I know of you, and trusting what I do not yet know. I eagerly anticipate the chance to grow together, getting to know the (man/woman) you will become, and falling in love a little more every day. I promise to love and cherish you through whatever life may bring us.”
“(Bride/Groom), you are my best friend. I love you with all my heart and stand here before all of our friends and family, sharing the happiest day of my life. I want nothing more than to share my future with you – my triumphs and my challenges, my joys and my sorrows. Together, I know we can accomplish the life we both dream of living.”
“Before my life was joined with yours, I was incomplete. Before I loved you, everything was dark. Now that our lives are joined, I am full in love, in laughter and in light. You are my everything and I give all I have to you, that you may have all you want and need.”
Religious Wedding Vows
“(Bride/Groom), I love you. I want to be your husband/wife so that we might serve Christ together. Through all the uncertainties and trials of life, I promise to be faithful to you and love you, so that together we may grow in the likeness of Christ and that our home may be a praise to Him.”
“In the presence of God and our friends and family I take thee to be my husband/wife. I promise to be your faithful partner in life, respecting you, loving you and sharing with you as intended by God and our shared faith.”
“In Christ’s name, I offer myself to you in marriage. I promise to share my life and love with you, honoring the covenant of our union and making our home a place of faith.”
