25 Beautiful Wedding Vow Books







THIS POST CONTAINS AFFILIATE LINKS



Quite a few of the weddings and inspiration shoots I have shared on Chic Vintage Brides of late have included Vow Books, it is one of the biggest, and most delightful, trends in weddings over recent years: couples writing their own vows. And I absolutely love it, because what makes a wedding truly memorable isn’t the flowers, the food or even the dress; it is the ceremony! Be it full of laughter, tears or a mixture of both, an emotional ceremony filled with love and words spoken from the heart is something your guests will never forget.

Of course if you are going to take the time to write your own vows, then you will want somewhere special to write and keep them. And a wedding vow book is the perfect place! Not only are they a great way to create a keepsake, that you can treasure forever, out of the words you and your beloved exchange, but writing your vows in a pretty personalised book or booklet instead of a piece of paper, note card or plain old journal, will ensure that your vows don’t get lost on, or after, the big day!

So, with this in mind, I thought I would round up 25 of my favourite vow books and booklets from Etsy for you. Whatever your style, color scheme or budget you will find something you love amongst the below and when you do simply click on the link to visit the shop and take a closer look or make a purchase!….

15 Wedding Readings from Literature for a Totally Romantic Ceremony

Authentic Collective

It’s often said that books help us find the words for what we already know, which is most certainly true with love. Great literature moves us with emotion, so it’s only natural to incorporate wedding readings from literature into your ceremony. While it can be overwhelming to sort through the endless words that have been written on the subject of marriage, commitment, and love, we’ve taken out all the legwork by curating our favorite wedding-approved excerpts. 

Featuring a mix of both timeless and contemporary selections, we’re highlighting our favorite wedding readings from literature to help personalize your special day.

A Natural History of Love by Diane Ackerman 

These impactful words celebrate the vast greatness of love.

“Love. What a small word we use for an idea so immense and powerful. It has altered the flow of history, calmed monsters, kindled works of art, cheered the forlorn, turned tough guys to mush, consoled the enslaved, driven strong women mad, glorified the humble, fueled national scandals, bankrupted robber barons, and made mincemeat of kings. How can love’s spaciousness be conveyed in the narrow confines of one syllable? Love is an ancient delirium, a desire older than civilization, with taproots spreading into deep and mysterious days. The heart is a living museum. In each of its galleries, no matter how narrow or dimly lit, preserved forever like wondrous diatoms, are our moments of loving, and being loved.”

“100 Love Sonnets” by Pablo Neruda

Chilean poet, Pablo Neruda, wrote this lovely sonnet for his wife in 1959. 

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.” 

The Bridge Across Forever by Richard Bach 

This wedding reading from literature thoughtfully explores what it means to be soulmates. 

“A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are; we can be loved for who we are and not for who we’re pretending to be. Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person we’re safe in our own paradise. Our soulmate is someone who shares our deepest longings, our sense of direction. When we’re two balloons, and together our direction is up, chances are we’ve found the right person. Our soul mate is the one who makes life come to life.”

Les Misérables by Victor Hugo

As one of the most celebrated works of literature, Victor Hugo’s words on love have a timeless appeal.

“The future belongs to hearts even more than it does to minds. Love, that is the only thing that can occupy and fill eternity. In the infinite, the inexhaustible is requisite.

Love participates of the soul itself. It is of the same nature. Like it, it is the divine spark; like it, it is incorruptible, indivisible, imperishable. It is a point of fire that exists within us, which is immortal and infinite, which nothing can confine, and which nothing can extinguish. We feel it burning even to the very marrow of our bones, and we see it beaming in the very depths of heaven.”

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

This classic excerpt from Jane Eyre would make a beautiful reading at the opening of a ceremony.

“I have for the first time found what I can truly love – I have found you. You are my sympathy — my better self — my good angel — I am bound to you with a strong attachment. I think you good, gifted, lovely: a fervent, a solemn passion is conceived in my heart; it leans to you, draws you to my centre and spring of life, wrap my existence about you — and, kindling in pure, powerful flame, fuses you and me in one.”

The Chaos of Stars by Kiersten White 

A lovely wedding reading from literature to be read by a close friend or officiant just before the vows.

“I didn’t fall in love with you. I walked into love with you, with my eyes wide open, choosing to take every step along the way. I do believe in fate and destiny, but I also believe we are only fated to do the things that we’d choose anyway. And I’d choose you; in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality, I’d find you and I’d choose you.”

This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen

For the down-to-earth couple who prefers a more realistic sense of romance.

“No relationship is perfect, ever. There are always some ways you have to bend, to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater … The love we have for each other is bigger than these small differences. And that’s the key. It’s like a big pie chart, and the love in a relationship has to be the biggest piece. Love can make up for a lot.”

Paradise by Toni Morrison

“Let me tell you about love, that silly word you believe is about whether you like somebody or whether somebody likes you or whether you can put up with somebody in order to get something or someplace you want or you believe it has to do with how your body responds to another body like robins or bison or maybe you believe love is how forces or nature or luck is benign to you in particular not maiming or killing you but if so doing it for your own good. Love is none of that. There is nothing in nature like it. Not in robins or bison or in the banging tails of your hunting dogs and not in blossoms or suckling foal. Love is divine only and difficult always. If you think it is easy you are a fool. If you think it is natural you are blind. It is a learned application without reason or motive except that it is God. You do not deserve love regardless of the suffering you have endured. You do not deserve love because somebody did you wrong. You do not deserve love just because you want it. You can only earn – by practice and careful contemplations – the right to express it and you have to learn how to accept it.”

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

Brazilian author, Paulo Coelho, wrote these impactful words on love that would be wonderful to be read by a friend or family member.

“When he looked into her eyes, he learned the most important part of the language that all the world spoke — the language that everyone on earth was capable of understanding in their heart. It was love.

Something older than humanity, more ancient than the desert. What the boy felt at that moment was that he was in the presence of the only woman in his life, and that, with no need for words, she recognized the same thing. Because when you know the language, it’s easy to understand that someone in the world awaits you, whether it’s in the middle of the desert or in some great city.

And when two such people encounter each other, the past and the future become unimportant. There is only that moment, and the incredible certainty that everything under the sun has been written by one hand only. It is the hand that evokes love, and creates a twin soul for every person in the world. Without such love, one’s dreams would have no meaning.”

The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman 

A unique reading selection for couples who appreciate a contemporary literary reference. 

“I will love you forever; whatever happens. Till I die and after I die, and when I find my way out of the land of the dead, I’ll drift about forever, all my atoms, till I find you again… I’ll be looking for you, every moment, every single moment. And when we do find each other again, we’ll cling together so tight that nothing and no one’ll ever tear us apart. Every atom of me and every atom of you… We’ll live in birds and flowers and dragonflies and pine trees and in clouds and in those little specks of light you see floating in sunbeams… And when they use our atoms to make new lives, they won’t just be able to take one, they’ll have to take two, one of you and one of me.”

The Four Loves by C.S. Lewis

Known as one of history’s most beloved authors, C.S. Lewis explores the nature of love in this excerpt from his 1960’s book.

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.” 

Every Day by David Levithan

In just a few sentences, this wedding reading from literature paints a picture of love’s boundless power. 

“This is what love does: It makes you want to rewrite the world. It makes you want to choose the characters, build the scenery, guide the plot. The person you love sits across from you, and you want to do everything in your power to make it possible, endlessly possible. And when it’s just the two of you, alone in a room, you can pretend that this is how it is, this is how it will be.”

Captain Corelli’s Mandolin by Shawn Slovo

This popular literary ceremony reading incorporates both humor and heart. 

“Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion, it is not the desire to mate every second minute of the day, it is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every cranny of your body. No, don’t blush, I am telling you some truths. That is just being “in love”, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.” 

A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway

The words of Hemingway would be a perfect addition anywhere in a ceremony. 

“At night, there was the feeling that we had come home, feeling no longer alone, waking in the night to find the other one there, and not gone away; all other things were unreal. We slept when we were tired and if we woke the other one woke too so one was not alone. Often a man wishes to be alone and a woman wishes to be alone too and if they love each other they are jealous of that in each other, but I can truly say we never felt that. We could feel alone when we were together, alone against the others. We were never lonely and never afraid when we were together.”

“Sonnet 116” by William Shakespeare

Shakespeare’s words stand the test of time, including this familiar sonnet about love.

“Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no; it is an ever-fixed mark,
That looks on tempests, and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.
Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle’s compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

14 Wedding Vows from Romantic literary passages

Wedding Vows from Poems

The Day Sky by Hafiz
Let us be like
Two falling stars in the day sky.
Let no one know of our sublime beauty
As we hold hands with God
And burn
Into a sacred existence that defies—
That surpasses
Every description of ecstasy
And love.
Hafiz, c. 1320 to 1389, a beautiful, mystic, Sufi poet from Persia

[i carry your heart with me(i carry it in] by e.e. Cummings
i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
Edward Estlin (E. E.) Cummings 1894–1962

How do I love thee? by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, — I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! — and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

A Vow by Wendy Cope
I cannot promise never to be angry;
I cannot promise always to be kind.
You know what you are taking on, my darling –
It’s only at the start that love is blind.
And yet I’m still the one you want to be with
And you’re the one for me – of that I’m sure. 
You are my closest friend, my favourite person,
The lover and the home I’ve waited for.
I cannot promise that I will deserve you
From this day on. I hope to pass that test.
I love you and I want to make you happy.
I promise I will do my very best.

I Promise by Dorothy R. Colgan
I promise to give you the best of myself
and to ask of you no more than you can give.
I promise to respect you as your own person
and to realize that your interests, desires and needs
are no less important than my own.
I promise to share with you my time and my attention
and to bring joy, strength, and imagination to our relationship.
I promise to keep myself open to you,
to let you see through the window of my world into my innermost
fears and feelings, secrets and dreams.
I promise to grow along with you,
to be willing to face changes in order to keep our relationship
alive and exciting.

Often a man wishes to be alone and a woman wishes to be alone too and if they love each other they are jealous of that in each other, but I can truly say we never felt that.

I will love you forever; whatever happens. Till I die and after I die, and when I find my way out of the land of the dead, I’ll drift about forever, all my atoms, till I find you again… I’ll be looking for you, every moment, every single moment.

I think you good, gifted, lovely: a fervent, a solemn passion is conceived in my heart; it leans to you, draws you to my center and spring of life, wraps my existence about you – and, kindling in pure, powerful flame, fuses you and me in one.”

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë


“This will be the mightiest day in the history of our lives, the holiest, & the most generous toward us both — for it makes of two fractional lives a whole; it gives to two purposeless lives a work, & doubles the strength of each whereby to perform it; it gives to two questioning natures a reason for living, & something to live for; it will give a new gladness to the sunshine, a new fragrance to the flowers, a new beauty to the earth, a new mystery to life; & it will give a new revelation to love, a new depth to sorrow, a new impulse to worship.

In that day, the scales will fall from our eyes & we shall look upon a new world.”

Mark Twain’s Letters arranged with comment by Albert Bigelow Paine


“If my like for you was a football crowd, you’d be deaf ’cause of the roar. And if my like for you was a boxer, there’d be a dead guy lying on the floor. And if my like for you was sugar, you’d lose your teeth before you were twenty. And if my like for you was money, let’s just say you’d be spending plenty.”

Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley

Wedding Vows from Movies & TV Shows

The Vow

I vow to help you love life, to always hold you with tenderness and to have the patience that love demands, to speak when words are needed and to share the silence when they are not, to agree to disagree on red velvet cake, and to live within the warmth of your heart and always call it home.

PAIGE

I vow to fiercely love you in all your forms, now and forever. I promise to never forget that this is a once in a lifetime love. And to always know in the deepest part of my soul that no matter what challenges might carry us apart, we will always find our way back to each other.

LEO


The Big Bang Theory: Bernadette and Howard

Like you, this is going to be short and sweet. I love you with all my heart and soul and promise to be with you forever.

BERNADETTE

Until I met you, I couldn’t imagine spending my life with just one person. And now, I can’t imagine spending one day of it without you.

HOWARD


Big Bang Theory: Penny and Leonard

Penny, we are made of particles that have existed since the moment the universe began. I like to think those atoms traveled 14 billion years through time and space to create us so that we could be together and make each other whole.

LEONARD

Leonard. You’re not only the love of my life. You’re my best friend. And you’ve got a friend in me. You got troubles. I got ’em too. There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for you. We stick together and we can see it through, because you’ve got a friend in me.

PENNY


The Big Bang Theory: Amy and Sheldon

Sheldon, when I was a little girl, I used to dream about my wedding. But eventually I stopped, because I thought that day would never come. Then I met you. From the first moment in that coffee shop, I knew that there was something special between us — even though I did work on a study that disproves love at first sight… Clearly it was wrong, because I felt something that day, and those feelings have only gotten stronger with time. I can’t imagine loving you more than I do right now, but I felt that way yesterday, and the day before yesterday, and the day before that… Sheldon, I don’t know what the future holds, but I know I’ve never been happier than I am in this moment marrying you.

AMY

Amy, I usually know exactly what to say, but in this moment, I have no words. I guess I’m overwhelmed by you — in a good way, not in the elevator in The Haunted Mansion way. Even if I can’t tell you now how I feel, I will spend my life showing you how much I love you.

SHELDON


Stardust

My heart, it feels like my chest can barely contain it. Like it doesn’t belong to me anymore. It belongs to you. And if you wanted it, I’d wish for nothing in exchange. No gifts. No goods. No demonstrations of devotion. Nothing but knowing you loved me too. Just your heart, in exchange for mine.

35 Non-Religious Wedding Readings That Show Off Your Literary Side

Every couple getting married is different, and yet wedding readings so often fall into the same traps. Even Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn can predict that a wedding reading will often be the Bible verse 1 Corinthians 13:4-7: Love is patient, love is kind. Pretty, yes, but not for everyone.

Brides looking to sidestep religious readings have lots of places from which to draw inspiration: song lyrics, poetry, and even novels. Maybe you and your partner have a favorite book you bonded over, or maybe there’s a childhood story you both loved growing up. If you’re drawing a blank, but like the idea of literary wedding readings, this list could be a good place to spark your creativity. It includes classic favorites, such as the Brontë sisters and Henry James, contemporary picks, such as Haruki Murakami and Patti Smith, YA authors such as John Green and Sarah Dessen, and even some unexpected stories, such as ones from Neil Gaiman and the king of breakup novels himself, Nick Hornby.

“You will learn a lot from yourself if you stretch in the direction of goodness, of bigness, of kindness, of forgiveness, of emotional bravery. Be a warrior for love.”

Every Day by David Levithan

“This is what love does: It makes you want to rewrite the world. It makes you want to choose the characters, build the scenery, guide the plot. The person you love sits across from you, and you want to do everything in your power to make it possible, endlessly possible. And when it’s just the two of you, alone in a room, you can pretend that this is how it is, this is how it will be.”

“You have fixed my Life—however short. You did not light me: I was always a mad comet; but you have fixed me. I spun round you a satellite for a month, but I shall swing out soon, a dark star in the orbit where you will blaze.”

“& isn’t the heart/ an ampersand,/ magnet between the seconds of days/ & dusks, the peonies/ & the fig tree & the squirrels?”

“At night, there was the feeling that we had come home, feeling no longer alone, waking in the night to find the other one there, and not gone away; all other things were unreal. We slept when we were tired and if we woke the other one woke too so one was not alone. Often a man wishes to be alone and a woman wishes to be alone too and if they love each other they are jealous of that in each other, but I can truly say we never felt that. We could feel alone when we were together, alone against the others. We were never lonely and never afraid when we were together.”

“Once upon a time, there was a boy. He lived in a village that no longer exists, in a house that no longer exists, on the edge of a field that no longer exists, where everything was discovered, and everything was possible. A stick could be a sword, a pebble could be a diamond, a tree, a castle. Once upon a time, there was a boy who lived in a house across the field, from a girl who no longer exists. They made up a thousand games. She was queen and he was king. In the autumn light her hair shone like a crown. They collected the world in small handfuls, and when the sky grew dark, and they parted with leaves in their hair.

Once upon a time there was a boy who loved a girl, and her laughter was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering.”

“‘I am,’ he said. He was staring at me, and I could see the corners of his eyes crinkling. ‘I’m in love with you, and I’m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.'”

“Yes, I need you, my fairy-tale. Because you are the only person I can talk with about the shade of a cloud, about the song of a thought — and about how, when I went out to work today and looked a tall sunflower in the face, it smiled at me with all of its seeds.”

“When you fall in love, the natural thing to do is give yourself to it. That’s what I think. It’s just a form of sincerity.”

Wild Awake by Hilary T. Smith

“People are like cities: We all have alleys and gardens and secret rooftops and places where daisies sprout between the sidewalk cracks, but most of the time all we let each other see is is a postcard glimpse of a skyline or a polished square. Love lets you find those hidden places in another person, even the ones they didn’t know were there, even the ones they wouldn’t have thought to call beautiful themselves.”

“No relationship is perfect, ever. There are always some ways you have to bend, to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater … The love we have for each other is bigger than these small differences. And that’s the key. It’s like a big pie chart, and the love in a relationship has to be the biggest piece. Love can make up for a lot.”

Jazz by Toni Morrison

“It’s nice when grown people whisper to each other under the covers. Their ecstasy is more leaf-sigh than bray and the body is the vehicle, not the point. They reach, grown people, for something beyond, way beyond and way, way down underneath tissue. They are remembering while they whisper the carnival dolls they won and the Baltimore boats they never sailed on. The pears they let hang on the limb because if they plucked them, they would be gone from there and who else would see that ripeness if they took it away for themselves? How could anybody passing by see them and imagine for themselves what the flavor would be like? Breathing and murmuring under covers both of them have washed and hung out on the line, in a bed they chose together and kept together nevermind one leg was propped on a 1916 dictionary, and the mattress, curved like a preacher’s palm asking for witnesses in His name’s sake, enclosed them each and every night and muffled their whispering, old-time love.”

“Sometimes when I look at you, I feel I’m gazing at a distant star.It’s dazzling, but the light is from tens of thousands of years ago.Maybe the star doesn’t even exist any more. Yet sometimes that light seems more real to me than anything.”

“Oh, what a love it was, utterly free, unique, like nothing else on earth! Their thoughts were like other people’s songs.

They loved each other, not driven by necessity, by the ‘blaze of passion’ often falsely ascribed to love. They loved each other because everything around them willed it, the trees and the clouds and the sky over their heads and the earth under their feet. Perhaps their surrounding world, the strangers they met in the street, the wide expanses they saw on their walks, the rooms in which they lived or met, took more delight in their love than they themselves did.”

“I’d train my breath and learn to read sonar until/ I retrieved every lost blood vessel of you. I swear/ this love is ungodly, not an ounce of suffering in it./ Like salmon and its upstream itch, I’ll dodge grizzlies/ for you. Like hawks and skyscraper rooftops,/ I’ll keep coming back. Maddened. A little hopeless./ Embarrassingly in love.”

“I want the journey to be long. & strange, like a map/drawn in snow by our shadows shivering. I want to shiver/against you, into you. I want the sound/of your teeth. I want the sound of the wind. I want to be/like the kids with their plastic sleds, gliding down,/all the way down the hill, then trudging/their sleds & snow-suited bodies all the wayback to the top. I want to be how they do this, for hours,/till sunset, till some sensible someone has/to come drag them away from the snow, the slope,/the 3… 2… 1!/of joy. I want to be the Anti-Sisyphus, in love/with repetition, in love, in love.”

“The future belongs to hearts even more than it does to minds. Love, that is the only thing that can occupy and fill eternity. In the infinite, the inexhaustible is requisite.

Love participates of the soul itself. It is of the same nature. Like it, it is the divine spark; like it, it is incorruptible, indivisible, imperishable. It is a point of fire that exists within us, which is immortal and infinite, which nothing can confine, and which nothing can extinguish. We feel it burning even to the very marrow of our bones, and we see it beaming in the very depths of heaven.”

“Do I love you? My God, if your love were a grain of sand, mine would be a universe of beaches… I have stayed these years in my hovel because of you. I have taught myself languages because of you. I have made my body strong because I thought you might be pleased by a strong body. I have lived my life with only the prayer that some sudden dawn you might glance in my direction. I have not known a moment in years when the sight of you did not send my heart careening against my rib cage. I have not known a night when your visage did not accompany me to sleep. There has not been a morning when you did not flutter behind my waking eyelids…

I love you. Okay? Want it louder? I love you. Spell it out, should I? I ell-oh-vee-ee why-oh-you. Want it backward? You love I.”

“I will love you forever; whatever happens. Till I die and after I die, and when I find my way out of the land of the dead, I’ll drift about forever, all my atoms, till I find you again… I’ll be looking for you, every moment, every single moment. And when we do find each other again, we’ll cling together so tight that nothing and no one’ll ever tear us apart. Every atom of me and every atom of you… We’ll live in birds and flowers and dragonflies and pine trees and in clouds and in those little specks of light you see floating in sunbeams… And when they use our atoms to make new lives, they won’t just be able to take one, they’ll have to take two, one of you and one of me.”

“Now, I’m not going to deny that I was aware of your beauty. But the point is, this has nothing to do with your beauty. As I got to know you, I began to realize that beauty was the least of your qualities. I became fascinated by your goodness. I was drawn in by it. I didn’t understand what was happening to me. And it was only when I began to feel actual, physical pain every time you left the room that it finally dawned on me: I was in love, for the first time in my life. I knew it was hopeless, but that didn’t matter to me. And it’s not that I want to have you. All I want is to deserve you. Tell me what to do. Show me how to behave. I’ll do anything you say.”

The Road by Cormac McCarthy

“Lying under such a myriad of stars. The sea’s black horizon. He rose and walked out and stood barefoot in the sand and watched the pale surf appear all down the shore and roll and crash and darken again. When he went back to the fire he knelt and smoothed her hair as she slept and he said if he were God he would have made the world just so and no different.”

22.

Just Kids by Patti Smith

“Where does it all lead? What will become of us? These were our young questions, and young answers were revealed. It leads to each other. We become ourselves … ‘What will happen to us?’ I asked. ‘There will always be us,’ he answered.”

“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life … You give them a piece of you. They didn’t ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. “

“I love you also means I love you more than anyone loves you, or has loved you, or will love you, and also, I love you in a way that no one loves you, or has loved you, or will love you, and also, I love you in a way that I love no one else, and never have loved anyone else, and never will love anyone else.”

“He dug so deeply into her sentiments that in search of interest he found love, because by trying to make her love him he ended up falling in love with her. Petra Cotes, for her part, loved him more and more as she felt his love increasing, and that was how in the ripeness of autumn she began to believe once more in the youthful superstition that poverty was the servitude of love. Both looked back then on the wild revelry, the gaudy wealth, and the unbridled fornication as an annoyance and they lamented that it had cost them so much of their lives to find the paradise of shared solitude. Madly in love after so many years of sterile complicity, they enjoyed the miracle of living each other as much at the table as in bed, and they grew to be so happy that even when they were two worn-out people they kept on blooming like little children and playing together like dogs.”

“The really important kind of freedom involves attention, and awareness, and discipline, and effort, and being able truly to care about other people and to sacrifice for them, over and over, in myriad petty little unsexy ways, every day.”

“The plain state of being human is dramatic enough for anyone; you don’t need to be a heroin addict or a performance poet to experience extremity. You just have to love someone.”

“If all else perished, and he remained, I should still continue to be; and if all else remained, and he were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger.”

“All my life I thought that the story was over when the hero and heroine were safely engaged — after all, what’s good enough for Jane Austen ought to be good enough for anyone. But it’s a lie. The story is about to begin, and every day will be a new piece of the plot.”

30.

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

“I have for the first time found what I can truly love – I have found you. You are my sympathy — my better self — my good angel — I am bound to you with a strong attachment. I think you good, gifted, lovely: a fervent, a solemn passion is conceived in my heart; it leans to you, draws you to my centre and spring of life, wrap my existence about you — and, kindling in pure, powerful flame, fuses you and me in one.”

“…believe in a love that is being stored up for you like an inheritance, and have faith that in this love there is a strength and a blessing so large that you can travel as far as you wish without having to step outside it.”

“What I’m feeling, I think, is joy. And it’s been some time since I’ve felt that blinkered rush of happiness. This might be one of those rare events that lasts, one that’ll be remembered and recalled as months and years wind and ravel. One of those sweet, significant moments that leaves a footprint in your mind. A photograph couldn’t ever tell its story. It’s like something you have to live to understand. One of those freak collisions of fizzing meteors and looming celestial bodies and floating debris and one single beautiful red ball that bursts into your life and through your body like an enormous firework. Where things shift into focus for a moment, and everything makes sense. And it becomes one of those things inside you, a pearl among sludge, one of those big exaggerated memories you can invoke at any moment to peel away a little layer of how you felt, like a lick of ice cream. The flavor of grace.”

“Anais, I only thought I loved you before; it was nothing like this certainty that’s in me now. Was all this so wonderful only because it was brief and stolen? Were we acting for each other, to each other? Was I less I, or more I, and you less or more you? Is it madness to believe that this could go on? When and where would the drab moments begin? I study you so much to discover the possible flaws, the weak points, the danger zones. I don’t find them—not any. That means I am in love, blind, blind. To be blind forever! (Now they’re singing “Heaven and Ocean” from La Gioconda.)”

“It’s more like every electron in every atom in the universe paused, breathed in deeply, assessed the situation, and then reversed its course, spinning backward, or the other way, which was the right way all along. And afterward, the universe was exactly the same, but infinitely more right.”

“In the darkness, two shadows, reaching through the hopeless, heavy dusk. Their hands meet, and light spills in a flood like a hundred golden urns pouring out of the sun.”

6 Of The Most Romantic Wedding Readings From Books

If you and your husband-to-be are lovers of literature, then fiction is a great place to start if you’re looking for meaningful wedding readings. Here are six of our favourite romantic wedding readings from books.

6 Romantic Wedding Readings from Books

Sometimes finding the words to tell your husband or wife-to-be how much you love them can be difficult, particularly with heightened emotions on your wedding day. You may need a little nudge in the right direction when it comes to romantic quotes for your wedding day. 

When your own words fail you, why not turn to those of the literary greats. From Hemingway to Brontë we’ve picked out some of the most romantic quotes from books for your wedding readings.

1.

The Bridge Across Forever by Richard Bach

“A soul mate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are; we can be loved for who we are and not for who we’re pretending to be. Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person we’re safe in our own paradise. Our soul mate is someone who shares our deepest longings, our sense of direction. When we’re two balloons, and together our direction is up, chances are we’ve found the right person. Our soul mate is the one who makes life come to life.”

Continue reading below…

This novel is inspired by the author’s relationship with his wife, who he considered his one true soulmate even after their sad divorce. You can’t deny that this extract is a beautiful description of how two people can make each other feel safe, loved and supported, which makes it perfect for a wedding.

2.

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

“I have for the first time found what I can truly love – I have found you. You are my sympathy – my better self – my good angel; I am bound to you with a strong attachment. I think you good, gifted, lovely: a fervent, a solemn passion is conceived in my heart; it leans to you, draws you to my centre and spring of life, wraps my existence about you – and, kindling in pure, powerful flame, fuses you and me in one. It was because I felt and knew this, that I resolved to marry you.”

This lovely literary quote is spoken by Mr Rochester to his fiancé Jane Eyre, a classic romantic couple. We particularly like this quote because it mentions marriage, rather than just love, which makes it great reading material.

3.

Wild Awake by Hilary T. Smith

“People are like cities: We all have alleys and gardens and secret rooftops and places where daisies sprout between the sidewalk cracks, but most of the time all we let each other see is is a postcard glimpse of a skyline or a polished square. Love lets you find those hidden places in another person, even the ones they didn’t know were there, even the ones they wouldn’t have thought to call beautiful themselves.”

This is another gorgeous quote that highlights how our other halves bring out the best in us and accept us for who we are. We think this quote would be brilliant for couples who love to travel together, or who have a passion for architecture.

4.

Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak

“Oh, what a love it was, utterly free, unique, like nothing else on earth! Their thoughts were like other people’s songs.

“They loved each other, not driven by necessity, by the ‘blaze of passion’ often falsely ascribed to love. They loved each other because everything around them willed it, the trees and the clouds and the sky over their heads and the earth under their feet. Perhaps their surrounding world, the strangers they met in the street, the wide expanses they saw on their walks, the rooms in which they lived or met, took more delight in their love than they themselves did.”

Taken from Boris Paternak’s most famous novel, this quote describes the love between his characters Yuri and Lara. We like this quote because it describes two people completely wrapped up in one another – if you and your other half have had a whirlwind romance, this one might be for you.

5.

A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway

“At night, there was the feeling that we had come home, feeling no longer alone, waking in the night to find the other one there, and not gone away; all other things were unreal. We slept when we were tired and if we woke the other one woke too so one was not alone. Often a man wishes to be alone and a woman wishes to be alone too and if they love each other they are jealous of that in each other, but I can truly say we never felt that. We could feel alone when we were together, alone against the others. We were never lonely and never afraid when we were together.”

This sweet quote from Hemingway describes feeling like you and your partner are a team who can get through anything when you are together – if you’ve both overcome hardship during your relationship then this might be a good choice.

6.

The Amber Spyglass, by Philip Pullman

“I will love you forever; whatever happens. Till I die and after I die, and when I find my way out of the land of the dead, I’ll drift about forever, all my atoms, till I find you again… I’ll be looking for you, every moment, every single moment. And when we do find each other again, we’ll cling together so tight that nothing and no one’ll ever tear us apart. Every atom of me and every atom of you… We’ll live in birds and flowers and dragonflies and pine trees and in clouds and in those little specks of light you see floating in sunbeams… And when they use our atoms to make new lives, they won’t just be able to take one, they’ll have to take two, one of you and one of me, we’ll be joined so tight…”

Although this quote comes from a fantasy book, we still think that it’s very real and beautiful, and definitely on of the most romantic wedding readings from books.

We’re heading into another wedding season, which means a lot of you are in the thick of planning for the big day. Which also means that soon you’re going to have to make the all-important decision about your wedding readings (if any!) during the ceremony.

In addition to my own wedding, I’ve had the honor of reading for several dear friends, so I understand the exciting and daunting challenge that comes with finding just the right words to mark the occasion.

While there are some bookish lists floating around out there already (including a 2012 Book Riot post), I figured it wouldn’t hurt to put together another resource of wedding readings for those of you on the hunt for something with a literary bent.

So, here are 35 literary wedding readings (in no particular order) that could add a little bookish flair to your special day. Of course, this is only the tip of the iceberg, so if you have other suggestions, please join the conversation and leave them in the comments.

1.

“This is where I have always been coming to. Since my time began. And when I go away from here, this will be the mid-point, to which everything ran, before, and from which everything will run. But now, my love, we are here, we are now, and those other times are running elsewhere.”

― A.S. Byatt, Possession


2.

“No one knows very much about the life of another. This ignorance becomes vivid, if you love another. Love sets the imagination on fire, and, also, eventually, chars the imagination into a harder element: imagination cannot match love, cannot plunge so deep, or range so wide.”

 ― James Baldwin, Just Above My Head


3.

“It has made me better loving you… it has made me wiser, and easier, and brighter. I used to want a great many things before, and to be angry that I did not have them. Theoretically, I was satisfied. I flattered myself that I had limited my wants. But I was subject to irritation; I used to have morbid sterile hateful fits of hunger, of desire. Now I really am satisfied, because I can’t think of anything better. It’s just as when one has been trying to spell out a book in the twilight, and suddenly the lamp comes in. I had been putting out my eyes over the book of life, and finding nothing to reward me for my pains; but now that I can read it properly I see that it’s a delightful story.”

― Henry James, The Portrait of a Lady


4.

“Here’s a profundity, the best I can do: sometimes you just know… You just know when two people belong together. I had never really experienced that odd happenstance before, but this time, with her, I did. Before, I was always trying to make my relationships work by means of willpower and forced affability. This time I didn’t have to strive for anything. A quality of ease spread over us. Whatever I was, well, that was apparently what she wanted… To this day I don’t know exactly what she loves about me and that’s because I don’t have to know. She just does. It was the entire menu of myself. She ordered all of it.”

― Charles Baxter, Feast of Love


5.

“Love is tricky. It is never mundane or daily. You can never get used to it. You have to walk with it, then let it walk with you. You can never balk. It moves you like the tide. It takes you out to sea, then lays you on the beach again. Today’s struggling pain is the foundation for a certain stride through the heavens. You can run from it but you can never say no.”

― Amy Tan, The Hundred Secret Senses


6.

“To lose the earth you know, for greater knowing; to lose the life you have, for greater life; to leave the friends you loved, for greater loving; to find a land more kind than home, more large than earth–

–Whereon the pillars of this earth are founded, towards which the conscience of the world is tending — a wind is rising, and the rivers flow.”

― Thomas Wolfe, You Can’t Go Home Again

(Note: I love this passage, but full disclosure, it actually refers to death… so it might not the greatest choice if your guests are familiar with Wolfe.)


7.

“What most people call loving consists of picking out a woman and marrying her. They pick her out, I swear, I’ve seen them. As if you could pick in love, as if it were not a lightning bolt that splits your bones and leaves you staked out in the middle of the courtyard. They probably say that they pick her out because-they-love-her, I think it’s just the opposite. Beatrice wasn’t picked out, Juliet wasn’t picked out. You don’t pick out the rain that soaks you to a skin when you come out of a concert.”

― Julio Cortázar, Hopscotch


8.

Marriage is not
a house or even a tent

it is before that, and colder:

The edge of the forest, the edge
of the desert
the unpainted stairs
at the back where we squat
outside, eating popcorn

where painfully and with wonder
at having survived even
this far

we are learning to make fire

― Margaret Atwood, Habitation


9.

“His face contained for me all possibilities of fierceness and sweetness, pride and submissiveness, violence, self-containment. I never saw more in it than I had when I saw it first, because I saw everything then. The whole thing in him that I was going to love, and never catch or explain.”

― Alice Munro, Lives of Girls and Women


10.

I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way

than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.

― Pablo Neruda, Sonnet XVII


11.

“For one human being to love another human being: that is perhaps the most difficult task that has been entrusted to us, the ultimate task, the final test and proof, the work for which all other work is merely preparation. Loving does not at first mean merging, surrendering, and uniting with another person—it is a high inducement for the individual to ripen, to become something in himself, to become world, to become world in himself for the sake of another person; it is a great, demanding claim on him, something that chooses him and calls him to vast distance…

Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest people infinite distance exists, a marvelous living side-by-side can grow up for them, if they succeed in loving the expanse between them, which gives them the possibility of seeing each other as a whole before an immense sky.”

― Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet


12.

“All anyone can hope for is just a tiny bit of love, like a drop in a cup if you can get it, or a waterfall, a flood, if you can get that too.”

― Edwidge Danticat, Krik? Krak!


13.

Conjunction, assemblage, congress, union:
Life isn’t meant to be lived alone.
A life apart is a desperate fiction.
Life is an intermediate business:
a field of light bordered by love
a sea of desire stretched between shores.

Marriage is the strength of union.
Marriage is the harmonic blend.
Marriage is the elegant dialectic of counterpoint.
Marriage is the faultless, fragile logic of ecology:
A reasonable process of give and take
unfolding through cyclical and linear time.

A wedding is the conjoining of systems in which
Neither loses its single splendor and both are completely
transformed. As, for example,
The dawn is the wedding of the Night and the Day,
and is neither, and both,
and is, in itself, the most beautiful time,
abundant artless beauty,
free and careless magnificence.

― Tony Kushner, Vows/Epithalamion


14.

“If there is no love in the world, we will make a new world, and we will give it walls, and we will furnish it with soft, red interiors, from the inside out, and give it a knocker that resonates like a diamond falling to a jeweller’s felt so that we should never hear it. Love me, because love doesn’t exist, and I have tried everything that does.”

― Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated


15.

“The moon looks wonderful in this warm evening light, just as a candle flame looks beautiful in the light of morning. Light within light. It seems like a metaphor for something. So much does. Ralph Waldo Emerson is excellent on this point.

It seems to me to be a metaphor for the human soul, the singular light within the great general light of existence. Or it seems like poetry within language. Perhaps wisdom within experience. Or marriage within friendship and love.”

― Marilynne Robinson, Gilead


16.

“Love is the ultimate outlaw. It just won’t adhere to any rules. The most any of us can do is to sign on as its accomplice. Instead of vowing to honor and obey, maybe we should swear to aid and abet. That would mean that security is out of the question. The words “make” and “stay” become inappropriate. My love for you has no strings attached. I love you for free.”

― Tom Robbins, Still Life with Woodpecker


17.

“What greater thing is there for two human souls, than to feel that they are joined for life–to strengthen each other in all labor, to rest on each other in all sorrow, to minister to each other in all pain, to be one with each other in silent unspeakable memories at the moment of the last parting?”

― George Eliot, Adam Bede


18.

The fountains mingle with the river
And the rivers with the ocean,
The winds of heaven mix for ever
With a sweet emotion;
Nothing in the world is single,
All things by a law divine
In one another’s being mingle—
Why not I with thine?

See the mountains kiss high heaven,
And the waves clasp one another;
No sister-flower would be forgiven
If it disdain’d its brother;
And the sunlight clasps the earth,
And the moonbeams kiss the sea
What are all these kissings worth,
If thou kiss not me?

― Percy Bysshe Shelley, Love’s Philosophy


19.

“Love is like a wind stirring the grass beneath trees on a black night,’ he had said. ‘You must not try to make love definite. It is the divine accident of life. If you try to be definite and sure about it and to live beneath the trees, where soft night winds blow, the long hot day of disappointment comes swiftly and the gritty dust from passing wagons gathers upon lips inflamed and made tender by kisses.”

― Sherwood Anderson, Winesburg, Ohio


20.

“Love is by definition an unmerited gift; being loved without meriting it is the very proof of real love. If a woman tells me: I love you because you’re intelligent, because you’re decent, because you buy me gifts, because you don’t chase women, because you do the dishes, then I’m disappointed; such love seems a rather self-interested business. How much finer it is to hear: I’m crazy about you even though you’re neither intelligent nor decent, even though you’re a liar, an egotist, a bastard.”

― Milan Kundera, Slowness


21.

“To love another human in all of her splendor and imperfect perfection, it is a magnificent task… tremendous and foolish and human.”

― Louise Erdrich, The Last Report On The Miracles At Little No Horse


22.

“This was love at first sight, love everlasting: a feeling unknown, unhoped for, unexpected–in so far as it could be a matter of conscious awareness; it took entire possession of him, and he understood, with joyous amazement, that this was for life.”

― Thomas Mann, Disorder and Early Sorrow


23.

I wanted to take
your hand and run with you
together toward
ourselves down the street to your street
i wanted to laugh aloud
and skip the notes past
the marquee advertising “women
in love” past the record
shop with “The Spirit
In The Dark” past the smoke shop
past the park and no
parking today signs
past the people watching me in
my blue velvet and i don’t remember
what you wore but only that i didn’t want
anything to be wearing you
i wanted to give
myself to the cyclone that is
your arms
and let you in the eye of my hurricane and know
the calm before

and some fall evening
after the cocktails
and the very expensive and very bad
steak served with day-old baked potatoes
after the second cup of coffee taken
while listening to the rejected
violin player
maybe some fall evening
when the taxis have passed you by
and that light sort of rain
that occasionally falls
in new york begins
you’ll take a thought
and laugh aloud
the notes carrying all the way over
to me and we’ll run again
together
toward each other
yes?

― Nikki Giovanni, Just a New York Poem


24.

“Love, to her, was something that comes suddenly, like a blinding flash of lightning – a heaven-sent storm hurled into life, uprooting it, sweeping every will before it like a leaf, engulfing all feelings.”

― Gustave Flaubert, Madame Bovary


25.

“If you suddenly and unexpectedly feel joy, don’t hesitate. Give in to it. There are plenty of lives and whole towns destroyed or about to be. We are not wise, and not very often kind. And much can never be redeemed. Still life has some possibility left. Perhaps this is its way of fighting back, that sometimes something happened better than all the riches or power in the world. It could be anything, but very likely you notice it in the instant when love begins. Anyway, that’s often the case. Anyway, whatever it is, don’t be afraid of its plenty. Joy is not made to be a crumb. (Don’t Hesitate)”

― Mary Oliver, Swan: Poems and Prose Poems


26.

“Truth is not spoken in anger. Truth is spoken, if it ever comes to be spoken, in love. The gaze of love is not deluded. It sees what is best in the beloved even when what is best in the beloved finds it hard to emerge into the light.”

― J.M. Coetzee, Slow Man


27.

“This love, this mortal love, is of their own making,” Hermes muses, “the thing we did not intend, foresee or sanction. How then should it not fascinate us? . . . It is as if a fractious child had been handed a few timber shavings and a bucket of mud to keep him quiet only for him promptly to erect a cathedral. . . . Within the precincts of this consecrated house they afford each other sanctuary, excuse each other their failings, their sweats and smells, their lies and subterfuges, above all their ineradicable self-obsession. This is what baffles us, how they wriggled out of our grasp and somehow became free to forgive each other for all that they are not.”

― John Banville, The Infinities


28.

“But so fluid a thing was love. It wasn’t firm, he was learning, it wasn’t a scripture; it was a wobbliness that lent itself to betrayal, taking the mold of whatever he poured it into. And in fact, it was difficult to keep from pouring it into numerous vessels. It could be used for all kinds of purposes…. He wished it were a constraint. It was truly beginning to frighten him.”

― Kiran Desai, The Inheritance of Loss


29.

Love? Be it man. Be it woman.
It must be a wave you want to glide in on,
give your body to it, give your laugh to it,
give, when the gravelly sand takes you,
your tears to the land. To love another is something
like prayer and can’t be planned, you just fall
into its arms because your belief undoes your disbelief.

― Anne Sexton, The Complete Poems


30.

“Finally he spoke the three simple words that no amount of bad art or bad faith can ever quite cheapen. She repeated them, with exactly the same slight emphasis on the second word, as though she were the one to say them first. He had no religious belief, but it was impossible not to think of an invisible presence or witness in the room, and that these words spoken aloud were like signatures on an unseen contract.”

― Ian McEwan, Atonement


31.

“A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are; we can be loved for who we are and not for who we’re pretending to be. Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person, we’re safe in our own paradise. Our soulmate is someone who shares our deepest longings, our sense of direction. When we’re two balloons, and together our direction is up, chances are we’ve found the right person. Our soulmate is the one who makes life come to life.”

– Richard Bach, The Bridge Across Forever


32.

“People are like cities: We all have alleys and gardens and secret rooftops and places where daisies sprout between the sidewalk cracks, but most of the time all we let each other see is is a postcard glimpse of a skyline or a polished square. Love lets you find those hidden places in another person, even the ones they didn’t know were there, even the ones they wouldn’t have thought to call beautiful themselves.”

– Hilary T. Smith, Wild Awake


33.

“Seek patience and passion in equal amounts. Patience alone will not build the temple. Passion alone will destroy its walls.”

– Maya Angelou


34.

“But I have seen the best of you and the worst of you, and I choose both. I want to share every single one of your sunshines and save them for later. I will tuck them into my pockets so I can give them back to you when the rain falls hard. Friend, I want to be the mirror that reminds you to love yourself. I want to be the air in your lungs that reminds you to breath. When the walls come down, when the thunder rumbles, when nobody else is home, hold my hand, and I promise I won’t let go.”

– Sarah Kay and Phil Kaye, “An Origin Story” from No Matter The Wreckage (this one is specifically not about romantic love, but it’s so perfect, I couldn’t leave it out.)


35.

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wand’ring bark,
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.
Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle’s compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me prov’d,
I never writ, nor no man ever lov’d.

– Shakespeare, Sonnet 116

90,000 examples from films, books and TV series

More and more couples are abandoning the registry office, choosing an outdoor ceremony, which they will make the way they want. Together with the organization and decor, the task arises to come up with what the young people will say to each other, what words they will utter at the time of creating a family. These words are usually the hardest to find because they have to sound genuine and reflect your feelings. We decided to help by telling you how to write a wedding vow for the bride and groom, as well as sharing a good selection of examples.

How to write the text of the oath of the bride and groom

We advise you not to take ready-made texts from the network, but spend time and create something of your own, something that will resonate in the soul of your loved one and wedding guests. Say what seems important, there are no rules. At the same time, it will be easier to compose the text if you can adhere to simple guidelines:

  1. Start early! Believe me, you will redo what you have written many times, give yourself at least 3-4 weeks.
  2. In order to understand what to write about, think about how your loved one makes you feel.How do you feel next to him? Who do you yourself become in this relationship? How did you meet and realize that you cannot live without each other? What have already been done together and what have not been done yet? How do you see your life in decades? What do you want to promise your significant other? The answer to any of these questions will form the basis of your wedding vow.
  3. The text of each oath should be short, for a maximum of 3-4 minutes, otherwise the effect of it will be smeared.
  4. Let the vows of the groom and the bride be in the same style – it is strange to listen to touching words from the bride, in response to which the groom pours witticisms.
  5. Do not say anything too intimate and do not mention the partner’s shortcomings, which give a person a lot of experiences. Other people will listen to you, do not forget about it. Even if the wedding is intimate and the closest ones are invited, think about what you are saying.
  6. It is desirable to arrange your words beautifully, look for inspiration for this in the next section.

Things to Consider When Preparing

First, decide how appropriate oaths will be for your ceremony.Those who do not want to shackle themselves with frames, it is better to prefer an outdoor ceremony, you can exchange words of loyalty at the end of the evening before launching fireworks or sky lanterns into the sky.

Be sure to discuss the style and approximate content of the confessions with your future husband (wife). You will probably want to come up with a common, shared vow.

Even if you are not limited in time, there is no need to drag out your presentation, turning it into a boring speech. Ideally, it should take between 30 seconds and 2 minutes.Is your covenant too long? Divide it into two parts: the public one, which you will pronounce at the celebration, and also the personal one – it can be presented to a dear person in the form of a letter or a message captured on a beautiful postcard.

When creating a marriage vow, please be patient: do not dwell on the first draft. Do not be afraid to edit the invented text: add or cross out unnecessary ones. After all, every word of the oath speech must be important, truly meaningful both for you and for your half.

Try to stick to the above three-step drafting plan. However, do not be afraid to go beyond it – there are no rules in love. Look for your personal inspiration!

How to draw up vows

In order not to forget the texts from excitement, it is better to write them down. Of course, you should not use a stub of a leaf for this, it is better to ask the calligrapher in advance to write them on beautiful design paper or in special books. After the wedding, some couples neatly arrange the texts of vows and decorate the interior with them.

If only you want it. Your turn!

Groom’s Oath: I thought this would be the hardest thing I would ever have to do. But when I saw you walking to the altar, I realized that nothing could be easier. I love you. You are the person with whom I am destined to spend my whole life.

Still from the series Friends

The Big Bang Theory TV Series (Penny and Leonard)

Groom’s Oath: Penny, we are made up of particles that have existed since the beginning of the universe.I like to think that these atoms traveled 14 billion years through time and space to create us and so that we could be together.

Bridal Oath: Leonard, you are not only the love of my life. You are my best friend. As I am for you. Do you have any problems. Me too. There is nothing that I would not do for you, because I am your friend.

Still from the series “The Big Bang Theory”

Movie “Crashers” (Craig and Christina)

Groom’s oath: I, Craig, take you, my best friend and my main life companion, as a wife.In sickness and health, with a clear sky and a squall wind.

Oath of the bride: I, Christina, will marry you, my best friend and captain, to be your anchor and sail, your fast yacht and a safe haven.

Film “American Pie. Wedding ”(Jim and Michelle)

The groom’s oath: You are the only woman I want to be with and the woman I cannot be without. I love you.

Bride Oath: It was difficult for me to say how I feel about you.And then I realized that love is not just a feeling. Love is what you do. This dress is a joint hike. Special haircut. Jim, you gave me everything I wanted and I solemnly vow to give everything to you.

Quotes from films that can be used for the texts of wedding vows:

  • You have bewitched me, my body and soul, I love, I love, I love you. From now on, I don’t want to be apart from you (Pride and Prejudice) .
  • I like that you freeze when outside plus 22 degrees.I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that a wrinkle appears over your nose when you look at me like I’m out of my mind. I love that my clothes smell like your perfume after a day together. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to bed. And it’s not because I’m lonely or because it’s New Years Eve. I came here today because once you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with someone, you want that rest of life to start as soon as possible (“When Harry Met Sally”) .
  • True love awakens the soul, makes us strive for more, ignites fire in our hearts and brings calmness to our minds. This is the kind of love I hope to give you (“Diary of Memory”) .
  • Poets often describe love as an emotion that we cannot control and that outweighs logic and common sense. For me it is. I didn’t plan on falling in love with you and I doubt that you were planning on falling in love with me. But as soon as we met, it was clear that we could not control what was happening to us.We fell in love despite our differences. As soon as this happened, something rare and beautiful appeared. Such love happened in my life only once, so every minute that we spent together left a mark on my memory. I will never forget a single moment of this love (“Memory Diary”) .
  • They say that when you meet the love of your life, time stops. And it’s true (“Big Fish”) .
  • Maybe I’m not a very smart person, but I know what love is (Forrest Gump) .
  • Only you I will always see. In my eyes, in my words and in everything I do (West Side Story) .

And your wedding vows to each other – if not the brightest episode, then one of the best for sure.And there can be no question of ignoring this very sentimental part of the ceremony at your celebration. Take advice from YesYes on how to prepare and present the words of your marriage vow.

Wedding vows are not just nice words. This is a promise that you make to each other in the presence of family and friends. Each letter in this text should be thoughtful, conscious, sincere.

How to write wedding vows?

Everything according to the rules

First of all, you and your loved one have to decide whether you will write vows together or separately? You can make a general introduction and conclusion of the speech, and everyone will write the wedding vow separately, so that on the wedding day he will touch not only relatives and girlfriends, but also each other to tears.It will not hurt to determine the duration of the future oath – ideally, 30-60 seconds.

Without haste and fuss

Let’s agree: there is no need to postpone the writing of vows until the last day. In a rush, you may miss something or mis-formulate a thought. You can take notes and outline wedding vows even months before the long-awaited day. Rereading, over and over again, you will edit the text and by the wedding day you will get the words polished to the ideal.

Sincerely about the main things

The best source of inspiration and reference for the necessary romantic wave – videos of other couples’ wedding vows.American wedding sites are filled with goose bumps. And you have to write your own, unlike others, oath vows. How? Sincerely and with love.

Look from the outside at your relationship: evaluate the past, present future; remember romantic moments and funny situations; think about what attracts you to each other. Feel the rush of deep feelings and endless gratitude for your loved one! Catch your inspiration – and the right words are sure to be found.

Wedding Portal YesYes prepared several questions that will help you and your chosen one write the perfect wedding vows:

1 What was your first meeting? How did you meet, how did you first kiss? Funny, funny, romantic or dramatic moments of your acquaintance and first date can be a great start to your wedding vow.

2 People in relationships are always changing, visibly or imperceptibly. What do you think has changed in you? How do you complement each other, what have you learned together? What inspires you in your loved one?

3 What dreams, plans, life goals do you have?

You can take inspiration for your vows from your favorite books, you can take lines from songs and even imitate the heroes of your TV shows.For example, Carrie Bradshaw’s dream man from Sex and the City could not write his vow and subsequently decided to rewrite Beethoven’s love letter.

“My thoughts fly to you, my only beloved … Only next to you can I live or not live at all. My whole life is in you, but only with a calm consideration of our situation, you and I will be able to always be together. Not stop loving me and never doubt the devoted heart of your beloved.

Always yours,

Always mine,

Always ours … “

Wedding vow from the TV series Friends

From the bride 902 Phoebe –

I had to grow up without adequate parents and a real family, so I was always haunted by the feeling that there was nothing important in my life. But, standing here, I understand – that’s all I need. You are my family.

From groom Mike:

– Phoebe, you are great! You have a wide soul, you are generous, you are strange, in a good way.You make my every day with you an adventure. I do not believe that such happiness has fallen to my lot. I am ready to live with you all my life!

Don’t be afraid to sound quirky, funny, or overly sentimental. Be open to each other – and everything will go as well as possible.

No edits and additions in any way

Express yourself, your character, your individuality. Avoid common phrases. Reread the draft over and over until it is flawless.Wedding vows should come from the heart and touch the innermost corners of the soul.

Do you need a rehearsal?

Some believe that one of the most important stages in preparing for a wedding vow is its stage production. You need to know how you will breathe, where to look and what moments make you cry. But on the other hand, you are not actors on the stage, and your guests are not theater critics! Should you deprive yourself of the opportunity to hear your wedding vows to each other for the first time on the wedding day? Just in case, prepare a paper copy, which will be a hint in case of anything.It is simply impossible to predict the degree of your excitement.

Why not document the result?

Some couples use a print style wedding decor to keep the atmosphere as cozy and harmonious as possible. Others take out of their purse / pocket an ordinary piece of paper folded in four. From the outside it looks very cute and incredibly touching. What you do is up to you. Try to feel comfortable and be confident!

Do not be afraid to be too sincere in front of guests.On your wedding day, feelings come first! And may the words spoken and heard by you on this extraordinary day never lose their relevance.

90,000 Writing a wedding vow

Wedding ceremony is the most romantic and touching moment of the whole celebration, when a new family is born in sacred moments.Instead of a traditional marriage in a registry office, today you can do everything according to your taste and desires: from the decor to the words that are pronounced at the altar to your soulmate. It’s about a wedding vow. Of course, love is confirmed not by a beautiful speech, but by the right actions, but on such an important day you cannot do without romantic words.

What is a wedding vow?

These are not just skillfully chosen words, spoken “for show” to a loved one publicly.Expressing your true feelings, and even in such an exciting moment as the wedding ceremony , conveying all their sincerity and depth, is not so easy. In addition, it is necessary that speech be smooth and beautiful, and words flow from the very heart.

Wedding vows: specific to different countries

In our country, the tradition of pronouncing wedding vows is completely new and is not yet widespread. But every year this custom attracts more and more couples. Each country has its own peculiarities of writing and pronouncing oaths at the altar.For example, the Europeans themselves compose the text. In Japan, when exchanging wedding vows, not only the newlyweds, but also both clans stand face to face. This means that not only young people, but also their families are responsible for the words spoken. The original Jewish wedding restricts the bride – she does not make any vows. This is the prerogative of the groom. In Pakistan, the wedding promise is made 3 days before the holiday. For Muslims, vows do not belong to traditions. Young people listen to the words of the priest, who tells them about the responsibilities in marriage, about responsibility before people and God.In Hinduism, there are “7 steps”. Taking the first step, the bride and groom promise to be faithful to each other, love their soul mate, respect, give healthy children, etc. Perhaps, in the near future, distinctive features of wedding vows will appear in our country.

Is it necessary?

First, decide with your significant other whether you want to swear vows to each other. The main thing is that it is a mutual decision. In order not to be mistaken in words, describe your expectations from the oath and its approximate vision.

What to say?

Choose the nature of the wedding vow in advance and together. It can be varied: playful, romantic, song or poetic. You can also use quotes from your favorite movies or books as the basis for the oath. Remember that original wedding – is your love holiday and family day. And the wedding vow is your love manifesto. So try to personalize your text as much as possible by avoiding boilerplate phrases. And let love itself and your significant other become inspiration.

Do not rely on impromptu behavior. At the most exciting moment, you may forget everything and not pick up even the most elementary words. So write your oath in advance and try to compose the text based on the answers to questions such as:

– “your emotions at the first meeting?”;

– “How did your chosen one conquer you?”

– “why do you love your future husband / wife?”;

– “What qualities do you value most in him / her?”;

– “when did you realize that this person is your destiny?”;

– “How do you see a joint future?”

Reflections on this topic will direct your thoughts in the right direction. Just don’t put off writing the text until the last moment. An original wedding already takes a lot of time and effort. Do not create unnecessary turmoil once again.

How to speak?

Write an oath that is as natural as possible for you. You should not be too serious when pronouncing it, if in everyday life you are used to constantly smiling. And if in everyday life you are restrained in your feelings, then do not try at such an important moment for the first time to try on a new role.

After writing your wedding vow, practice pronouncing it several times before your responsible speech to make sure that the words sound good and will hit the nail on the head. After all, your wedding ceremony is a massive event. And a public appearance awaits you. Although you will be surrounded by your closest and dearest people, and you will feel their support, it is still better to prepare carefully so as not to disappoint them and not “fall on your face in the mud.”

If you are not sure that you will remember the words of the oath at the altar well, write yourself small tips for problem areas that are constantly forgotten.Better yet, make your oath beautifully if you are afraid to miss something important. For example, it can be done in the form of an old scroll. And the help is excellent, and the memory is unforgettable. By the way, don’t forget her at home. Especially if you are planning a celebration abroad. For example, is a wedding in the Dominican Republic. Just put your vow near your wedding rings. This will reduce the likelihood of forgetting the most important thing to a minimum.

To a distant, happy future

The wedding vow will become an obligatory part of your anniversary celebration program in the future.Believe me, children and grandchildren will someday be very pleased to hear what words became the beginning of your family. So you will share with them not only dizzying love, but also your experience, wisdom.

And remember the main truth: listen to your heart – it will prompt the most correct words!

The oath of the groom to the bride in verses

Our meeting, like a moment of revelation,
I still remember this day,
How excitement seized me,
And how thoughts are all about you.

I remember the main question that I asked,
How did you say “yes” to me in response,
And I want today, on my wedding day,
Promise that through many years

I will also love you, do you hear,
I will keep tenderness in my heart for you,
Our daughter, or maybe my son,
I will love you just like you,

I will share my life with you without a trace,
Every day, every hour, every moment,
I will furtively stroke my cheek,
When you sleep sweetly side by side,

I will become a faithful, reliable support,
And you and our whole family,
I will hide you from bad weather,
I will give you all the love!

Oath of the bride to the groom in verses

My beloved, to myself today
I will turn my words,
I am glad that fate pleases
Connect us with you,

That you and I found each other,
Didn’t miss this chance,
I’m ready to become your wife
And I want to promise now,

That I will surround you with care,
With my love, my tenderness,
And I will willingly support you in everything,
And I will preserve all the joy of days,

That you and I will build together.
I will be a good wife,
And I will become a wonderful mother,
I am ready all the way on earth

Pass, holding your hand,
My dear man,
I don’t know boredom with you,
I found the answer to everything in you.

Examples of wedding vows for the bride and groom in prose

Oath of the groom:

When I met you, the whole world seemed to me to be different – like a big endless holiday. Every second next to you is a real treasure.Today I solemnly vow to protect my beloved from troubles and misfortunes. Never turn away when you hear a request for help. I promise to sincerely try not to cause you any grief. On this day, our life has become different, one for two, and I vow to go through it with you.

Oath of the bride:

Now we are one family, and we have to walk together along the same life path. The road is not only smooth but also bumpy. I want my support and love to help you cope with any difficulties.The joy shared by the two increases, and the grief shared by the two becomes less. I promise that I will try to make our family life bright and joyful.

Often, newlyweds think that it is quite easy to say a few words to each other, and therefore do not prepare in advance. This is a huge mistake. It is actually difficult to find words already during the event, and as a result, the wedding will be ruined. Vows are always prepared in advance. And if young people plan to recite them by heart, a rehearsal is required before the event.But even if everything is perfectly rehearsed, it may happen that while taking the oath, the bride or groom will forget the words out of excitement. In this case, you have to improvise. It will be optimal to print the texts in advance and read them in front of each other.

The texts should not be too long. Otherwise, the guests will simply get bored. The texts of the newlyweds should be made in the same style (which is why it is better to order them from a professional). The bride and groom should read the vows to each other, not to the guests.And, of course, we must not forget about feelings. Even a breaking voice and unintentional tears are better than a dry and emotionless reading. By the way, the advice to the bride is to keep a handkerchief with her just in case.

The oath of the bride and groom in the registry office and the church is pronounced after the spouses are declared husband and wife. At the exit ceremony, the time for making the promises is discussed in advance according to the script.

Wedding promises are an important memory to keep. They can be inserted into a beautiful frame and hung on the wall in the bedroom.Can be stored in a special box. You can order beautiful stylish folders for vows. Sometimes wedding promises are accompanied by a meaningful action for the lover. For example, exchanging gifts, releasing pigeons or butterflies into the sky. After taking the vows, it became a new fashion trend to plant a tree together and then take care of it, watching how it becomes taller and more beautiful every year.

If desired, the spouses can create their own tradition – for example, read oaths to each other every anniversary.

To give each other vows or not is the decision of each couple. The main thing is that the most important words always sound in the hearts.

The most important stage of the wedding day is the registration of marriage – the moment of joining two hearts together with a beautiful ritual – the exchange of wedding rings. You can make this moment even more beautiful and touching with the help of a wedding vow, which will allow you to express all your love and loyalty to your soul mate. Such a modern wedding tradition as the writing of oaths of allegiance appeared in Russia quite recently, and few newlyweds know what a wedding vow is and how to draw it up correctly.Therefore, the portal Svadbagolik.ru will tell about this in the article.

What is a wedding vow?

This is a beautifully written text expressing love and loyalty to your soul mate, which is usually pronounced during a wedding painting immediately after the young people said the cherished “yes” to each other. A wedding vow can be long or short, in verse or prose, serious or humorous, in the form of statements of famous people or a “product” of your own composition – for every taste, depending on the character of the bride and groom!

The oath usually consists of three blocks:

  1. Introduction – you confess your love and loyalty to your soulmate and talk about your desire to create a strong family union with him (“I take you as my husband and want you to become my faithful companion, rejoice with me and be sad …”
    ).
  2. The main part – in it you talk about your feelings, why you fell in love with this person, how you met him, what situations made your love even stronger, why you decided to tie the knot with this particular person, what did you achieve together, etc. … ( “I met you at that boring party and realized that the evening was not lost yet. We went to watch the stars fall, and at that moment I made a secret wish, which came true today – to become your wife …”
    ).
  3. Conclusion – you express your future obligations and responsibilities, for example, to be in grief and joy to the end, not to nag your husband
    , etc. And do not forget to thank your loved one for simply being in your life!

If you decide to decorate your celebration with the uttering of vows, consider these important points regarding this beautiful Western custom:

Types of wedding vows

As we said earlier, there are many varieties of wedding vows, let’s take a quick look at them so that you can find the one that suits you:

  • Wedding vow in prose, which usually contains touching words of love addressed to your soul mate.Can be entirely a work of your own, or have borrowed parts, such as beautiful quotes ( “It’s so great to find a special person that you want to annoy for the rest of your life.”
    . Rita Rander).
  • Wedding oath in verse (both composed directly for the wedding, and poems by famous poets written about love). Here is an example of a vow in her own words that a bride made for a wedding:

I met you in a sultry summer,
When I was shallow in the banks of the Oka!
You filled my life with bright light,
And this feeling, Pasha, for ever

Both the one and the other option can be both serious and touching, and funny, humorous.Which of these to choose is up to you, based on your character and personal preferences, as well as a sense of humor, because your significant other should take jokes in her direction well. Even if you and your guests find the wedding vow funny, your significant other may be offended! Therefore, you should never joke about:

  • Appearance, even if at home your significant other laughs from his big nose, etc.
  • The negative side of the relationship (quarrels, etc.)NS.).
  • Deeply personal moments of life together (it is unlikely that your groom will like a wedding vow if you publicly tell what an amazing lover he is, even though this is a great compliment for a man).

Important!
Please note that the wedding vow of the bride and groom should reflect the theme of your celebration. For example, if you have a nautical wedding, tell us about your relationship by imagining you as two ships, life as an ocean, etc.

The visiting ceremony is becoming more and more popular in our country.Along with the registration, we also adopt the European traditions that take place at the ceremony. As a rule, the newlyweds there do not just say “Yes”, thereby confirming their desire to get married, but take the vows of the bride and groom. The speeches delivered by the young on this day can be of a very different nature – from a small poem to a long saying. Do not put off writing an oath until the last day: believe me, on the eve of the wedding there will be no time for that. The bride and groom can repeat the oaths at the exit registrar, you can read a prepared speech or trust your impromptu art.It must be said right away that the last option should be chosen only by very brave and confident couples, since on this day, already overwhelmed with excitement, the newlyweds can simply get confused and not say a word. Therefore, usually the bride and groom write their vows in advance, in secret from each other, and read them out at the ceremony. Of course, it is better if you write in your own words, because only the bride and groom can sincerely say what is in their souls on this day, and what they are ready to swear to each other. How to write the vows of the bride and groom? What to say at the ceremony? Get inspired by your love story! Remember how you met, where you were together.Remember what you love to do together, movie quotes and lines from books you both love. Highlight the most important moments in the relationship that led you to the decision to tie destiny together. However, if nothing comes to your mind at all, we offer several versions of the texts, you can use them entirely, or take as the basis of your exclusive oath!

The idea of ​​exchanging a promise of fidelity and eternal love between a bride and groom is not new in itself, but somewhat alien to an Orthodox person or one who has come out of the post-Soviet space.In both cases, the oath of the newlyweds was pronounced for them in the first case by a priest, and in the second – by a registry office worker. The young only had to say the secret “Yes!” in the right place. Times are changing, and today’s spouses have a unique opportunity to make their wedding unique and unforgettable. It can be carried out according to a unique scenario, without forgetting to scrupulously foresee all the nuances and trifles. In particular, carefully approach the preparation of the oath for the newlyweds. This article will help everyone to figure out how to come up with this “vow”, make it truly unique and personal, as well as avoid common but annoying mistakes.

What are

So, being an acquired, but undoubtedly beautiful tradition, the oath of the newlyweds at the wedding can be:

  • serious or playful;
  • in poetry or prose;
  • long or short;
  • own composition or borrowed from some authoritative sources.

A romantic or funny text (here you can choose) should be written, guided by some rules:

  • Start with the introduction. The part is short, literally consisting of several sentences. Tell us about your love and desire to create a strong union with your soul mate.
  • Main part.
    It should take about half of your entire speech. You can tell about why your chosen one is dear to you, how you met him, what you value in him most of all, how your feeling grew, in a word, explain why this person, and not someone else, is next to you.
  • Final part. Slightly shorter than the previous one. Here, promise to be near in sorrow and in joy, to love forever and share responsibilities, to be tolerant and faithful. Tell us about the sacrifices you are ready to make for the sake of your beloved and what obligations you are ready to take on.

Ideas for writing

At the initial stage of writing an oath, take a piece of paper, a pen and write down everything that seems interesting, important and most important to you. Surely the following thoughts will come to your mind:

  • how much you are in love;
  • your life has changed dramatically;
  • you are ready for self-sacrifice and all kinds of concessions;
  • gratitude and reverent attitude overwhelm you;
  • you are in the most determined mood;
  • do not imagine your life without a loved one;
  • see perspective and development in your relationship.

You can also immerse yourself in the memories of the brightest moments together.

It is only natural that a million more ideas will ripen in your head. They are the basis of the oath of the newlyweds at the registration of marriage. It’s just that now this whole stream of thoughts will need to be systematized. It would be nice to think over the storyline and decide on a speech plan. Whether you will mention the first meeting, talk about a joint flight not a paraglider, or is it more important for you to decide on the further development of your relationship, then you decide.The main thing is that the speech should end up being emotional, solemn and colorful.

Now that we have figured out the spontaneous ideas, we proceed to the stage of turning chaotic speeches into a beautiful text, because it is extremely difficult to talk about love without getting lost in clichés and absurdities. The following recommendations will help:

  • Get inspired by your loved one.
    Set aside the scribbled piece of paper in the far corner and spend time with only two people. It doesn’t matter if you watch a movie or go for a walk, remember why you fell in love with your chosen one.
  • Be alone with your thoughts.
    Photos, cute gifts and some iconic things will help you immerse yourself in nostalgic memories.
  • Learn from the experience of happy couples.
    Talk to friends and acquaintances who have already coped with a similar task, find out how they wrote their texts.
  • Talk to his friend (her girlfriend).
    You can find out some funny moments about your chosen one or his attitude towards you.The information can then be incorporated into your oath.
  • Now you are ready to write the text completely.
    You can arrange it as a letter to your loved one, but with the condition that it is very far away, cellular communication has not yet been invented, and no one has heard of the Internet. Immerse yourself in the moment, convey your feelings across distances, over the years, choose only the essence, talk about the innermost so that your partner feels how dear he is to you.
  • When dealing with subtle matters, do not forget about reality. If your wedding is themed, then the speech should be appropriate for the moment. For example, at the naval ceremony, it would be nice to pronounce the words of the oath of the newlyweds in the style of “two ships sailing in the ocean of love.”

Possible mistakes

In order not to overshadow the romantic moment of pronouncing the main words, try to avoid the following annoying mistakes:

  • Deciding to speak from the heart, or, more simply, improvise, remember that even great actors forget their roles, what can we say about the storm of emotions that will overwhelm you.So there is no spontaneity!
  • Start preparing your speech in advance, do not put it off until the last moment. Otherwise, you risk getting a chaotic or crude commitment.
  • Be laconic, respect your partner and guests, do not get carried away with personal details, do not go into long memories. Remember that you will have to read your love letter in front of many witnesses.
  • It does not matter where the oath of the newlyweds is pronounced: in the registry office or at the exit registration, remember about mutual agreement.An awkward situation, when one prepares a long speech, and the other fits into a couple of phrases, can darken the holiday.
  • Learn the text by heart? Good girl! But do not forget to write a “cheat sheet”, because people from an overabundance of emotions can forget things and more serious.
  • When uttering the cherished words, look into the eyes of the chosen one, because you turn your heartfelt speech to him, and not to the floor, walls or guests.

Pronunciation rules

It is extremely important not only to prepare the text of the oath of the newlyweds in advance, but also to rehearse it.Whether you read from a piece of paper or pronounce words from memory, say them several times anyway. Aloud, expressively, placing emotional accents. You can rehearse in front of a mirror, but it is better to choose a real listener. The bride and groom, of course, are not suitable for this purpose, but a girlfriend, parents, brother or sister can not only be grateful listeners, but also act as critics. Or record your speech on a voice recorder, listen to it and correct it yourself.

When to pronounce

You will not be able to make your speech when you want, your whole wedding will take place according to a certain scenario, and will be scheduled literally in minutes.This is the key to her success. Do you want to pronounce the oath of the newlyweds at the exit registration, in the registry office or in the temple? Negotiate this moment with the organizers in advance.

You will be able to voice your text of the oath of the newlyweds in the registry office before you are announced as husband and wife. The priest will tell you the rules for making vows in the temple. The visiting ceremony involves the greatest variability in the exchange of promises, but even here it is necessary to coordinate their pronunciation with the toastmaster. A good option can be to voice the oath right at the wedding feast.

How to preserve the text of the oath

The wedding ceremony is important for lovers, therefore everything connected with it is carefully kept by the young family. Such an iconic thing as the oath of the newlyweds, no doubt, is subject to preservation, and in some situations, and re-reading. How do you extend the life of a promise written on a piece of paper? Here are some tips:

  • get a beautiful pair of frames, insert your vows there and hang on the wall;
  • arrange them into beautiful folders or a wedding album;
  • keep them in a specially purchased casket for this reason.

It may seem interesting ideas to attach the text of promises to the paws of pigeons and release birds into the sky, plant a tree, and bury oaths next to it, or read out your promises every year and, if necessary, update them.

Not boring oaths

Do you want the newlyweds’ oath to be pronounced in a non-standard way? Would you like to impress your soul mate by serving plain text in a unique way? We respect your originality and are ready to help:

  • present your oath in the form of a presentation or a musical video;
  • write the words on large sheets of paper, say the promises in silence;
  • Sing your promises (you sing well, don’t you?), Prepare a pantomime number or dance.

There are very informative examples of the pronouncement of oaths by newlyweds in world practice. In Japan, vows are exchanged not so much by newlyweds as by their families. In Pakistan, promises are made on the third day after the wedding ceremony. At Jewish weddings, only the groom swears, and Muslim young people only carefully heed the words of the imam. An interesting practice of exchanging promises is the so-called 7 steps of Hinduism. Each step of the couple means some kind of vow: to love, respect, honor, and so on.

Spoken words gain much more power than just thought out, felt, or even written. So exchange vows, rings, but most importantly – live together, happily ever after!


In many countries of the world at a family celebration there is a mandatory tradition – a wedding vow. In our country, this tradition is only gaining momentum, and many young people still do not know how to properly compose it.

What is a wedding vow for?

Previously, the wedding oath was pronounced by a registry office employee, and the newlyweds only confirmed the spoken words, well, or denied.Today, the newly-made husband and wife themselves want to tell each other exactly what they feel and experience, ask their partner for what they want to see in family life and promise something.

Just imagine how romantic it is when the bride and groom stand in beautiful outfits, their parents and guests look at them, and the young people swear in eternal love and constant support. The wind will carry these words around the world and tell him that you have tied your destiny forever.

The wedding vow is a touching moment at this event of love, taking the vow is considered the most sincere and tender moment.The newlyweds utter words that come from the depths of the soul, they speak such speeches that in ordinary life can rarely be heard.

When should you take the wedding vow?

There are several points for the pronunciation of this touching speech, and it is up to you to choose which one to choose. Initially, you can swear love and fidelity to each other during the bride’s ransom. The groom comes to the house of his beloved, goes through a lot of comic tests, answers tricky questions, and now the moment comes when he sees his future wife.Thoughts can get confused in the head, a state of confusion sets in, but you need to get together and say such desired and touching words that every girl is looking forward to. The bride, in turn, having heard the oath, must reciprocate and utter no less sincere words of love.

The second suitable moment for pronouncing the wedding vow is the visiting ceremony of painting. Every day it is becoming more and more popular to legitimize relations not in the registry office, but to independently choose the place of the marriage registration.

Or else they say the wedding vow before the first dance of the newlyweds. At this moment, such words sound especially touching, and all because the first dance itself is the highlight of the evening, everyone is waiting for it, both the guests and the newlyweds themselves.

How to make a wedding vow?

Many are afraid to pronounce an oath, it all starts with the fact that the bride and groom simply do not know how to write it. The wedding vow is your inner voice, your thoughts and feelings.There are no specific rules for writing an oath as such. You just need to write and say what you really feel, listen to your heart and put it all on paper. The oath must be written initially, just sit down alone, concentrate, think over everything that happens, remember the wonderful moments spent together and write everything that comes to mind. In an oath, you can, and even need to write for what you love this person, why it was decided to get married, promise eternal love and be around no matter what.It is especially difficult for men to write an oath, but it is the groom’s oath that is eagerly awaited. This is because men by their nature are not verbose, mostly they do not like to say beautiful and touching words, but here you have to really try.

There are a large number of options for writing a wedding speech, some examples will be given in this article, but it is worth remembering that these are just other people’s words. And you should only say what your heart tells you!

Groom’s Oath

“My beloved, I am glad that our paths converged, we met and now the moment has come when the relationship is officially registered.I promise to love you both in joy and in sorrow, to constantly support, take care and protect. For such a beautiful woman, I will do everything in my power and even more. I promise to make you happy every day and if there are tears on your face, then only from joy. ”

It is believed that making solemn and heartfelt promises before the first kiss at a wedding ceremony is a tradition in European weddings. However, the wedding vow existed at all times on the territory of the former USSR. It was just that a registry office worker pronounced it, and the newlyweds either repeated the words or answered questions.

When to speak

Modern promises at the altar are like small lyrical works, in poetic form or in prose.And the groom, the bride, who have decided that there will be a moment of exchange of vows at the wedding, prepare them in advance. A vow of love is usually included in the script as follows:

  1. At the time of official registration – at the registry office or the wedding palace. Before the bride and groom are declared husband and wife, they utter words of love and promises of fidelity. After that, rings are exchanged.
  2. At the time of wedding or registration according to religious confession. In Christianity, the words of an oath can be suggested by a priest who confesses future newlyweds before the wedding.In Islam, young people do not speak words, but only agree with what the imam says. In Judaism, only the bridegroom speaks the word vow. The entire clan to which the groom or the bride belongs is responsible for the promises of the young in Japan.
  3. Wedding feast – humorous vows are usually pronounced here in verse. Usually they are included in the script by the master of ceremonies and given to the newlyweds to read. Or the young should prepare their words.

To understand how to write your wedding vow, you must first of all be alone with yourself.You can turn on the recorder and say words of love. Then listen and record what you liked. If the writing process has reached a dead end, postpone it for the next day. Sometimes the best wedding vows are an impromptu confession. But just in case, it’s worth having a tip sheet.

What are wedding vows

In addition to the fact that the promises and confessions that a couple share with each other can be in poetry and prose, they can be conditionally divided into several categories.

  • Solemn – pronounced during an official ceremony. Usually an oath consists of 2-3 sentences and ends with the words of loyalty and the desire to go hand in hand until the end of your days.
  • Religious – the words for making a vow are taken from the Holy Scriptures, consulted with the clergy. Such an oath must meet certain standards.
  • During off-site ceremonies, at themed weddings, the newlyweds choose the style of vows that will fit into the wedding day.Words are also chosen in line with the wedding.
  • Comic oaths are more like ditties, if written in poetic form.
  • Borrowed vows from favorite movies and theatrical performances. The most popular of them are the Carrie Bradshaw oath from the movie “Love in the City”, the oaths of Monica and Chandler from the TV series “Friends”.
  • Staged – the oath turns into a mini-performance. For example, the bride and groom exchange keys – as symbols of the keys to the heart and pronounce the words of the oath.Or they plant a rose bush, a tree – as a sign of their love and loyalty to each other.

Examples of oaths for the groom

It is easy to say words of love and tenderness in private. It is quite another to talk about your feelings in front of witnesses. Therefore, it is better to prepare the words of the oath in advance. Below are the possible options for a solemn vow of love and fidelity for the groom.

  • I, (name, surname) at this hour swear to love you (Name of the bride) until the end of my days.I promise to protect, nourish and cherish our feelings. I chose you as my wife and I swear that I will always be a faithful husband and a devoted friend.
  • In the face of everyone here, I swear to love you forever. I swear that my tenderness and my loyalty will never disappoint you. I will cherish our happiness and will do my best to make it eternal.
  • I love you and will love you forever. You are the one I chose to be my wife. I will be with you in joy, sorrow, sickness and old age. You are my destiny, my happiness, my life.

Words of the bride’s oath

It is easier for brides to write an oath. Women are naturally willing to talk about love. To write your vow, you can remember the first meeting, kiss, memorable events and significant words.
