17 Traditional Wedding Vows to Inspire Your Own

Vows are an incredibly meaningful—and personal—part of a wedding
ceremony. They provide the contractual (both formal and informal) basis that will guide the newlyweds through their shared life together and set the tone for what is to come. While there are many creative variations of the lifelong promises, some couples prefer to recite powerful, centuries-old wedding vows from many different faiths and cultures. These tried-and-true words set a strong foundation for a lifetime of unity and marital bliss together.

And while there are so many versions of the exchange, there are several core principles and beliefs that transcend both culture and faith. The ubiquitous statement of purpose (marriage) and consent may not trigger any sentimental tears from the guests, but the shared promises of life-long commitment, partnership, love, companionship, kindness, honesty, patience, and intent to ride out any storm that may come are sure to do the trick. Plus, let’s not forget the ever-present prayer for a blessed and happy union from a higher power and expression of gratitude for having found a life partner that can be so moving and evocative.

Here are 17 traditional wedding vows to use in full or as inspiration to write your own wedding vows.

1. Jewish Wedding Vows

During a traditional Jewish wedding, the couple may say these words (in Hebrew) as they exchange rings:

“I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine.”

Along with the ring exchange, the Seven Blessings (Sheva Brachot) are recited. Here’s a translated excerpt:

Blessed are You, Adonai, our God, Ruler of the universe, gladden the beloved companions as You gladdened Your creatures in the garden of Eden. Blessed are You, Adonai, Who gladdens this couple. Blessed are You, Adonai, our God, Ruler of the universe, Who created joy and gladness, loving couples, mirth, glad song, pleasure, delight, love, loving communities, peace, and companionship. Adonai, our God, let there soon be heard…the voice of the loving couple, the sound of the their jubilance from their canopies and of the youths from their song-filled feasts. Blessed are You Who causes the couple to rejoice, one with the other.

We bless God for creating joy and happiness, bride and groom, mirth song, gladness and rejoicing, love and harmony, peace and companionship; and we thank God for letting this bride and groom to rejoice together.

2. Hindu Wedding Vows

As the newlyweds-to-be walk around the flame honoring Agni, the Hindu fire god, they recite the following:

Let us take the first step to provide for our household a nourishing and pure diet, avoiding those foods injurious to healthy living.

Let us take the second step to develop physical, mental, and spiritual powers.

Let us take the third step to increase our wealth by righteous means and proper use.

Let us take the fourth step to acquire knowledge, happiness, and harmony by mutual love and trust.

Let us take the fifth step so that we are blessed with strong, virtuous, and heroic children.

Let us take the sixth step for self-restraint and longevity.

Finally, let us take the seventh step and be true companions and remain lifelong partners by this wedlock.

3. Muslim Wedding Vows

Traditionally, the Muslim wedding ceremony, or nikkah, does not include vows. Instead the imam, or cleric, will provide a short sermon and marital blessing and the newlyweds will offer their consent. If Muslim brides and grooms do choose to include a vow exchange, it typically follows the recitation below.

Bride: “I, ___, offer you myself in marriage in accordance with the instructions of the Holy Quran and the Holy Prophet, peace and blessing be upon him. I pledge, in honesty and with sincerity, to be for you an obedient and faithful wife.”

Groom: “I pledge, in honesty and sincerity, to be for you a faithful and helpful husband.

4. Protestant Wedding Vows

Traditional Protestant wedding vows may be the most familiar to you. If you’re nervous about slipping up, ask your cleric to perform the vows in a read-and-repeat style.

In the name of God, I, ______, take you, ______, to be my (husband/wife), to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, until we are parted by death. This is my solemn vow.

5. Methodist Wedding Vows

These vows are a call-and-response. The only words a couple needs to remember to be wedded: “I do.”

Officiant: “Will you have this (woman/man) to be your (wife/husband), to live together in holy marriage? Will you love (her/him), comfort (her/him), honor, and keep (her/him) in sickness and in health, and forsaking all others, be faithful to (her/him) as long as you both shall live?”

Bride/Groom: “I do.

6. Lutheran Wedding Vows

Similar to other Christian religions, Lutheran vows can be read by the officiant and repeated by the to-be-weds.

I, ______ , take you, to be my (wife/husband), and these things I promise you: I will be faithful to you and honest with you; I will respect, trust, help, and care for you; I will share my life with you; I will forgive you as we have been forgiven; and I will try with you better to understand ourselves, the world, and God; through the best and worst of what is to come, and as long as we live.

7. Baptist Wedding Vows

There are two options for traditional Baptist vows. The first is a call-and-response from your officiant:

Officiant: “Will you, have _____ to be your (wife/husband)? Will you love (her/him), comfort and keep (her/him), and forsaking all others remain true to (her/him), as long as you both shall live?”

Bride/Groom: “I will.”

Your other option is a shorter version of vows—one line said by both partners:

I, _____, take thee, to be my (wife/husband), and before God and these witnesses, I promise to be a faithful and true (husband/wife).

8. Presbyterian Wedding Vows

Traditional Presbyterian vows offer another moving interpretation of those of other Christian religions. One variation is a simple call-and-response with the officiant.

Officiant: “______, wilt thou have this woman/man to be thy wife/husband, and wilt thou pledge thy faith to him/her, in all love and honor, in all duty and service, in all faith and tenderness, to live with her/him, and cherish her/him, according to the ordinance of God, in the holy bond of marriage?”

Bride/Groom: “I will.”

Alternately, couples can speak their own vows.

I, _____, take you, _____, to be my wife/husband, and I do promise and covenant, before God and these witnesses, to be your loving and faithful husband/wife in plenty and in want, in joy and in sorrow, in sickness and in health, as long as we both shall live.

9. Catholic Wedding Vows

Before you get to your vows, Catholic brides and grooms usually have to answer three questions from the priest:

“_____ and _____, have you come here freely and without reservation to give yourselves to each other in marriage?”

“Will you honor each other as man and wife for the rest of your lives?”

“Will you accept children lovingly from God and bring them up according to the law of Christ and his Church?”

You will respond with either “I will” or “yes,” then continue onto the vows themselves:

I, _____, take you, _____, to be my (husband/wife). I promise to be true to you in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health. I will love you and honor you all the days of my life.

10. Episcopalian Wedding Vows

In Episcopalian tradition, the to-be-weds engage in a simple call-and-response with the officiant.

Officiant: “______, wilt thou have this woman/man to be thy wedded wife/husband to live together after God’s ordinance in the Holy Estate of Matrimony? Wilt thou love her/him? Comfort her/him, honor and keep her/him, in sickness and in health, and forsaking all others keep thee only unto her/him as long as you both shall live?”

Bride/Groom: “I will.”

Couples can also choose to speak their own vows, similar to those of other Christian religions.

In the name of God, I, _____, take you, _____, to be my wife/husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, until parted by death. This is my solemn vow.

11. Quaker Wedding Vows

In a Quaker nuptial ceremony, each partner recites the traditional wedding vows while holding hands.

In the presence of God and these our friends, I take thee to be my wife/husband, promising with divine assistance to be unto thee a loving and faithful husband/wife so long as we both shall live.

12. Apache Wedding Vows

In Apache tradition, there may not be an exchanging of vows. However, a wedding blessing is read to the couple:

Now you will feel no rain, for each of you will be shelter for the other. Now you will feel no cold, for each of you will be warmth to the other. Now there will be no loneliness, for each of you will be companion to the other. Now you are two persons, but there is only one life before you. May beauty surround you both in the journey ahead and through all the years. May happiness be your companion and your days together be good and long upon the earth.

Treat yourselves and each other with respect, and remind yourselves often of what brought you together. Give the highest priority to the tenderness, gentleness, and kindness that your connection deserves. When frustration, difficulties, and fear assail your relationship, as they threaten all relationships at one time or another, remember to focus on what is right between you, not only the part which seems wrong. In this way, you can ride out the storms when clouds hide the face of the sun in your lives—remembering that even if you lose sight of it for a moment, the sun is still there. And if each of you takes responsibility for the quality of your life together, it will be marked by abundance and delight.

Assign the reading of blessings (if appropriate) to dear ones as a way of both incorporating the messages and traditions into the ceremony and recognizing friends and family members that weren’t a part of the bridal party.

13. Cherokee Wedding Vows

In another Native American tradition, Cherokee also read a beautiful wedding blessing to their brides and grooms:

God in heaven above please protect the ones we love. We honor all you created as we pledge our hearts and lives together. We honor Mother Earth and ask for our marriage to be abundant and grow stronger through the seasons. We honor fire and ask that our union be warm and glowing with love in our hearts. We honor wind and ask that we sail through life safe and calm as in our fathers’ arms. We honor water to clean and soothe our relationship—that it may never thirst for love. With all the forces of the universe you created, we pray for harmony as we grow forever young together. Amen.

14. Buddhist Wedding Vows

In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, the couple answers the first set of vows read by the officiant together. The vows are longer than in many other religions but create a sense of companionship as the two respond in unison. Here’s an excerpt:

Officiant: _____ and _____ do you pledge to help each other to develop your hearts and minds, cultivating compassion, generosity, ethics, patience, enthusiasm, concentration, and wisdom as you age and undergo the various ups and downs of life and to transform them into the path of love, compassion, joy, and equanimity?

Bride/Groom: “We do.

Officiant: Recognizing that the external conditions in life will not always be smooth and that internally your own minds and emotions will sometimes get stuck in negativity, do you pledge to see all these circumstances as a challenge to help you grow, to open your hearts, to accept yourselves, and each other; and to generate compassion for others who are suffering?

Bride/Groom: “We do.”

Officiant: Understanding that just as we are a mystery to ourselves, each other person is also a mystery to us, do you pledge to seek to understand yourselves, each other, and all living beings, to examine your own minds continually and to regard all the mysteries of life with curiosity and joy?

Bride/Groom: “We do.”

Officiant: Do you pledge to preserve and enrich your affection for each other, and to share it with all beings? To take the loving feelings you have for one another and your vision of each other’s potential and inner beauty as an example and rather than spiraling inwards and becoming self-absorbed, to radiate this love outwards to all beings?

Bride/Groom: “We do.

15. Unitarian Wedding Vows

Unitarian vows can follow a call-and-response pattern with the officiant.

Officiant: ______, will you take ______ as your wife/husband, will you pledge to share your life openly with her/him, to speak the truth to her/him, in love? Will you promise to honor and tenderly care for her/him, to encourage her/him fulfillment as an individual through all the changes in your lives?”

Bride/Groom: I will

Alternately, each partner can recite the traditional vows.

I, _____, take you, _____, to be my wife/husband, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and cherish always.

16. Interfaith Wedding Vows

An interfaith ceremony combines the different faiths and beliefs of each partner, creating beautifully blended vows that reflect the core values of both.

I,_____, take you, _____, to be my wife/husband. I promise to be true to you in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health. I will love and honor you all the days of my life.

Let your officiant know that you intend to blend different traditions in your vows or ceremony in advance. This will allow them to prepare a narration that will explain the customs and beliefs to your guests in real time.



17. Non-Denominational Wedding Vows

In this beautiful set of wedding vows from a non-denominational ceremony, the couple conducts a knot-tying unity ceremony (wherein they make a fishermen’s knot—the kind that grows stronger with pressure). Then, they vow to one another:

I, _____, commit myself to you, _____, as (wife/husband) to learn and grow with, to explore and adventure with, to respect you in everything as an equal partner, in the foreknowledge of joy and pain, strength and weariness, direction and doubt, for all the risings and settings of the sun. We tie these knots to symbolize our connection to one another. They represent our trust in each other and our combined strength together.

The Best Real Wedding Vow Examples to Inspire Your Own

Find funny, timeless and heartfelt wedding vows examples and inspiration from real couples who penned their own.

Wedding vows are a big deal. This is the moment in your ceremony when you can really speak to your partner and share what’s in your heart, and there are lots of ways to go about that. You can choose from the classic vows spoken by billions of couples over the years, or you can choose to write your own vows, making them as unique as you are. So how do you decide, and which traditions do you pull from, and which do you leave behind?

Let’s start with the reasoning behind wedding vows. Wedding vows are all about the promises you’re making to your partner about your marriage and your commitment to them. They are not only vows to marry you but vows to go above and beyond—whatever that looks like for you. If you choose to go traditional—”to have to hold, in sickness and in health”—much of your work is already done for you. But if you choose to write your own vows, you may want some guidance and wedding vows examples.

What do you imagine your handwritten wedding vows will sound like? Do you want your partner and guests in fits of laughter (and to avoid getting teary yourself) or to hit them right where it counts—in the heart—so they’re reaching for tissues? You could write vows that are sweeping and poetic, or intimate and particular—just toss in an anecdote or recite your favorite quote. Whichever route you take, penning your own promises is one of the purest and most memorable ways to personalize your wedding ceremony. 

But let’s be real—writing your own vows can be intimidating. Trying to squeeze your entire heart into just a few lines isn’t easy. It can help to read sample wedding vows that give you an idea of what to include (or what you’d rather skip). Read on for a few of the best wedding vow examples—some snippets, some in full—from real couples who wrote their own. Whether you need wedding vows for him or wedding vows for her, these vow examples will inspire you when it’s time to write your own.

1. Lighthearted, Romantic Wedding Vows

Dre: 

“I promise to always remember that you are indeed human. That you may sometimes make questionable decisions, decisions I don’t agree with, like throwing a beach party that I didn’t authorize on the one free day we had before our wedding—a day when we should be doing wedding admin together and things like, I don’t know, writing our vows! But what I love about you is I know that you do these things because you care so deeply about those who are close to you and are genuinely one of the most thoughtful and considerate people I have ever known. You remind me of my mother in this way. (That and your mutual unbridled passion for shopping and [my parents’ dog].) Today, I promise to show that same care and consideration for you for the rest of my life. Right now, it’s the easiest thing in the world to do because I honestly love you so much and want nothing but your happiness, but even when things are difficult and it gets hard to do and our love gets more comfortable, complacent and timeworn, I will always show that same care and consideration for you.

Dan: 

“Back in June 2013, I decided I needed one more Michelada after a night out in Downtown LA. It led me to wandering around a block from Skid Row—something I later learnt the guide books advise against. But what those guide books also don’t tell you is that you could end up meeting the love of your life as a result. I met the love of my life in you Dre—you are my number one. You make me smile whenever I think of you. I promise to make you smile as much as you make me smile, even if that means I have to watch a bit less football or ‘soccer.’ I also promise to pretend not to be annoyed when I find giant mounds of Dre hair in the most unlikely place after one of your giant detangling sessions, or just simply finding smaller ones that have broken free on their own literally everywhere. It is a small price to pay to live with you and your fantastic barnet, as we say in the UK.”

2. Short, Funny Wedding Vows

Jenna: “Mike vowed to change me from ‘the lady friend’ in his cell phone to ‘wifey. ””

Mike: “Jenna vowed to only purchase one more dog.”

3. Sweet, Anecdotal Wedding Vows

Chelsey: 

“Eric, you and I both know how indecisive I can be at times. I simply don’t like to make decisions. But if there is one decision in my life that I know is the right one, it’s to spend the rest of my life with you. There is an infinite number of things I love about you. I love your thoughtfulness and your ability to keep me grounded. I love your loyalty to me and our relationship. I love the way you weirdly get excited about Chipotle water and I love how when you laugh really hard, your one eye starts to crinkle up. I promise to be patient with you, even if it means that I have to listen to how you should have started that one player on your Fantasy Football bench every single Sunday during football season.”

Eric: 

“Chelsey, when we first met, I never imagined this day would come, but now that we are here I couldn’t have imagined choosing anyone else but you to go through life’s journey with. I love your laugh, your smile, your caring nature and that face you make when something is so cute, you just have to squeeze it. I promise to support you, to honor you and to love you unconditionally, even when we may disagree on something. Like whether The Bachelor or Monday Night Football is more important to watch. I can’t imagine where I would be without you, and I cannot wait to continue this crazy journey with you by my side, I love you.”

3. Emotional Wedding Vows

“It was one section of my vows in particular that really got Mike and made him lose it. I’ve performed with my comedy troupe for over 13 years now, and I decided to borrow some advice from our experiences on stage together, which I thought seemed applicable to our marriage. After taking a few moments discussing the various things that happen before our shows and about the importance of listening, not rushing the moments, and just having fun, I said the following [vows]:

‘The last thing we do as a team is we all stand in a circle. One by one we look someone in the eyes and say, ‘I believe in you.’ And though we’ve never really defined what that means definitively, for me, I’ve always felt like I was looking at a good friend and telling them, ‘I love you. And no matter what happens out there, I’ve got your back.’

So, without further ado, let’s remember to listen, let’s try not to rush the moments and let’s have a lot of fun. Michael Dailey, I believe in you.’

That really got Mike. He knows how much the members of my team are like family to me and we were finally becoming a family ourselves.”

4. Timeless, Romantic Wedding Vows (With Shared Language)

Liz: 

“Anna, I knew from the very moment I laid eyes on you that you were my forever. Someway, somehow, I was determined to make you mine. And from this day forward my heart is entirely yours….

As we continue to grow in our lives together, I promise to give you all of my words when needed, and to share in the silence when they are not, to pick you up if you are down, to love you unconditionally, to lay my bare skin on you when needed most, to care for you and our families for as long as we live, to adventure with you always, to say I love you before falling asleep each night, to be the best mom I can be as we grow a family together, and to always know in the deepest part of my soul, that when challenges arise we will always find our way back to one another.

Anna, you are my everything and this is my promise to you.”

Anna: 

“Liz, Of all the people you’ve met on your journey and of all the places you’ve been, somehow and someway, you ended up here—with me. It is the most powerful and humbling fact that I can accept.

I used to think that we met by chance but now I know without a doubt that the universe put you in front of me because we were meant to spend our lives together.

You have filled my life with joy and have given me a sense of peace that I have never known.

You are my best friend, my biggest supporter, and… the best backup singer a girl could ask for.
Although today marks the start to the rest of our lives, I know it will not be enough time with you.

I will not take our time together for granted. And because words cannot do it, I promise to show you, for the rest of my life, how much I love you.
I promise to encourage you to follow your dreams.
I promise to make you laugh when you are taking yourself too seriously.
I promise to hold your hand through the good times and through the bad times.
I promise to be loyal and faithful and to put you before all else.
I promise to never stop making up songs for you. Although, I know you wish I would.
And I promise that when we are old and gray, we will look back on our lives together and we have no regrets.
…From this day forward, you will never walk alone.”

5. Shared, Traditional-ish Wedding Vows

Amy and Russell:

“You are my lover and my teacher,
You are my model and my accomplice,
And you are my true counterpart.
I will love you, hold you and honor you,
I will respect you, encourage you and cherish you,
In health and sickness,
Through sorrow and success,
For all the days of my life.”

6. Deeply Personal Wedding Vows

Alex:

“I promise to encourage your compassion,
Because that is what makes you unique and wonderful.
I promise to nurture your dreams,
Because through them your soul shines.
I promise to help shoulder our challenges,
For there is nothing we cannot face if we stand together.
I promise to be your partner in all things,
Not possessing you, but working with you as a part of the whole.
Lastly, I promise to you perfect love and perfect trust,
For one lifetime with you could never be enough.
This is my sacred vow to you, my equal in all things.”

7. Simple, Powerful Wedding Vows

Ronnie:

“I call you ‘My Megan’ because you are my everything. You are my light, and you’ve shown me more love than I’ve ever known.”

8. Grateful Wedding Vows

Annebel:

“Rachel, I feel overwhelmingly lucky and proud to be standing beside you today…. Thank you for accepting me for all that I am. Thank you for knowing that I’ve fought everyone that tried to put me in a dress since I could walk and allowing me to express myself the way I see fit. Thank you for loving me in a suit. Thank you for always supporting and loving me, unconditionally, I know I haven’t always made that easy. I love that you love my persnickety, killer Chihuahua like she’s your own. I know on that fact alone, you’re going to make an amazing mother to our children someday. I vow to love you without reservation or conditions. I vow to always do my best to give more than I take, and not keep score. When I am with you, I am the best version of myself because I am utterly and unapologetically myself. I vow to continuously work on myself, and to be the wife you want and deserve.”

Rachel:

“Annabel, I was drawn to you from the day we met. Your warm and inviting eyes and your magnetic smile softened my tough façade immediately. I remember wanting to have, and sometimes make, reasons to talk to you. To see you beam that amazing smile back at me, immediately putting me at ease and brightening my day. I love that we started out as friends. That is my favorite part. You truly saw me. You understand me, accept me, in a way no one else has, in a way that I believe no one else can. You are my best friend…. I’m so grateful for our special brand of weird. To me, it means more than just being silly. It signifies a special, profound, unfettered love for each other. It’s loving each other at our most intimate, vulnerable times. It colors our tapestry with yet unnamed, exotic colors, known only to the two of us.”

9. Romantic, All-Encompassing Wedding Vows

Anne:

“I take you to be my partner for life,
I promise above all else to live in truth with you
And to communicate fully and fearlessly,
I give you my hand and my heart
As a sanctuary of warmth and peace
And pledge my love, devotion, faith and honor
As I join my life to yours.”

10. Witty, Humorous Wedding Vows

Her:

“I promise if there’s only one avocado left, I’ll let you have it.”

Him:

“I promise to put you first and love you even when you get real sassy.”

As you can see from the sample wedding vows above, there’s no one way to write your vows. Each of these wedding vows examples is personal and loving. They give the wedding guests a tiny window into the love the wedding couple shares. When you sit down to try to explain what the love of your life means to you, the most important part is to stay true to yourself and to who you are as a couple. Borrow from sources that mean something to you, or just write from the heart, and never be afraid to be yourself.

Living, learning, loving,
Together,
Forever.”

“I take you to be my partner for life,
I promise above all else to live in truth with you
And to communicate fully and fearlessly,
I give you my hand and my heart
As a sanctuary of warmth and peace
And pledge my love, devotion, faith, and honor
As I join my life to yours.”

Wedding Vows: How To Write Them (Plus Examples)

It’s funny how not too long ago, wedding vows felt like the thing that landed at the bottom of your wedding to-do list. While “writing marriage vows” languished at the bottom, the top of the list was all that logistical (and sometimes fun and pretty stuff): figure out your seating chart, nail down your perfect dance party playlist, create an amazing photo booth filter. And then the pandemic happened, and in an instant, weddings went from “all the things,” to “just the things that really mattered.”

As we are slowly emerging from a year+ of Zoom weddings, and starting to see hints of weddings returning to (some version of) normal… I hope we all take with us a focus on the parts of a wedding that make it magic. The two of you. Vows to spend the rest of your life together. (Okay, and probably some really good outfits.)

Coronavirus may not have given us much, but it gave fresh perspective on some key wedding vows: “In sickness and in health, till death do us part.” Suddenly, we’ve all been forced to remember that the most important thing we have in this world is our love for each other, and our commitment to care for each other till the end. No pandemic, budget, or changes to plans can take away the most beautiful parts of your wedding day. Wedding vows are the commitment we make to each other. They make us understand what we’re committing to. They’re the heart and soul of the wedding.

I’ve known too many people who saved writing their marriage vows for the night before. (Pro-tip: start early.) We’ve put together this seriously helpful post of wedding vows—a comprehensive list of real marriage vows (including vows from world religions), and some tips for exactly how to get it done, to get your own creativity flowing.

But before we start, a note. You don’t have to write your wedding vows. You might want to. To that, we say: Go for it! Or perhaps you want to say the time-tested traditional marriage vows, echoing the generations before you. (I did.) Or maybe you’re looking to tweak traditional vows just a little bit to make them feel like yours. Whatever you’re looking for, chances are we’ve got something on our list that will help you craft the promises you want to make.

How to write wedding vows

This might feel obvious at first, but just because you might have known that you’ve wanted to write wedding vows for years and years, your partner might not. Talk to them! Decide together that you definitely want to write them. There is nothing wrong with saying traditional marriage vows. But if you’re going to DIY this, both of you have to be equally committed to this concept.

Remember that marriage vows don’t have to be long or complex, or put you on the spot. Hannah Nielsen-Jones, officiant with River and Root Ceremonies in Washington, D.C., advises,  “Consider how comfortable you are with public speaking. If it’s not something that you enjoy or if it’s something that makes you anxious, it is 100% acceptable to ask your officiant to structure vows so that you only have to say ‘I do’ or ‘I will’ or something similar. If speaking on your own feels hard, you can also consider speaking at the same time as your partner, so you are saying the same things to each other at the same time.”

Writing Vows: Step By Step

Once you’ve decided that you want to write your vows, this is how you get started (with plenty of stealing from our collected sample vows, below).

Talk to your officiant

Many houses of worship may require you to say all, or part, of the traditional marriage vows of that religious practice. Sometimes this won’t preclude also saying vows that you wrote (though sometimes it will), but you’ll want to know what the rules are—and what the religious reasoning for them is—upfront. Some officiants may ask to review your vows before the ceremony, so be prepared to have them early if this is the case.

Come up with a plan

Will you write your vows together, or separately? Will you show them to each other beforehand, or will you keep them a secret until the ceremony? Do you want to set a due date for when you need to have your vows written? If you’ve decided that you will not see each other’s marriage vows before the ceremony, Nielsen-Jones of River and Root Ceremonies recommends showing them to someone else. “I encourage people to send them to their officiant or a good friend beforehand at least two weeks before the wedding. This has at least two benefits: 1) you will actually write them before the day you get married, and 2) the person who looks over them can let you know if they are roughly congruent in length and tone.” You don’t want to be promising to care for someone on their deathbed, while they’re promising to always DVR Grey’s Anatomy for you. As Nielsen-Jones says, “In my experience, it’s rare that the vows are so different from each other, but when they are, I would say that half the time couples try to meet in the middle, and half the time they say, ‘Yep that’s our dynamic! let’s keep it that way!’ The aim of this is to avoid an unfortunate surprise during vows.”

Create a Structure

Think together about how long you want your vows to be, and think about how you want them to fit into your ceremony. Having a structure will also help you keep your word limit and help your vows match your partner’s. Finding a structure that works for you may require some tracking down, but don’t be afraid to mix and match from lots of examples you find. And of course, look to your own story and build around that. Alexis Dent, who owns vow-writing company XO Juliet, says, “I always recommend including an anecdote or quote to start, at least one anecdote in the middle, and a clear declaration of vows towards the end.”

Research

A good place to start is reading traditional vows. See what strikes a chord with you. You can even incorporate these into what you write, or use them as a jumping-off point. Secondly, steal ideas! Borrow freely from poetry, books, and even movies or video games. Jot down words and phrases that capture your feelings. The quotes you keep closest to your heart ring true for a reason. Use them. And if you’re someone who keeps a journal, go back and steal from your past self too. You’re not publishing a book or writing a college essay. Plagiarism is both allowed and encouraged (though as always: avoid cultural appropriation, which is a whole different thing). The truth is, most vows are plagiarism since we’re hoping to steal some wisdom from people that have gone before us, both in vows and in marriage.

Think About Your Relationship

Take some time, both separately and together, to think about what you love about each other and what makes your relationship special. Write down the most memorable moments you have shared together, good or bad. Think about the promises you want to make to your partner, and which ones you don’t. Alexis of XO Juliet says that “The best advice I would give to someone who is writing their wedding vows is to include the tough times in their relationship. It makes it much more meaningful to hear about the struggles the couple has endured. We all know that relationships are not all rainbows and butterflies, but people get so wrapped up in thinking that vows only have to be about the perfect times. Including an allusion to hard times makes your vows more relatable, and it also seems honest.”

Jackie Reinking, a wedding officiant specializing in elopements in New York City, says that if you get stuck, ask yourself some questions. “What is something your partner did for you that made you feel special? Is there something about your partner that you never want to live without? Think back to the first time you said, ‘I love you.’ Why was that the moment you had to say it?” She advises that “After reading the question, take a mental note of the first thing that comes to mind. Don’t give yourself more than a couple of minutes to flip through your thoughts. This shouldn’t be something to add stress but an exercise in feeling the joy of how much you absolutely adore this person you are marrying.”

Edit for tone, and then shorten

It’s best to decide on your overall tone before you put pen to paper, but make sure to go back over your words and refine the tone you want to achieve. Poetic and romantic? Humorous but touching? It’s up to you. The most important thing is that your marriage vows ring true and sound like they’re from your heart. While your vows can be lighthearted, they should, in some way, acknowledge the seriousness of the commitment you’re about to make. Use humor in moderation, and remember, at the end of the day, making the audience laugh is not your goal. Keep in mind that your vows shouldn’t be so personal that they can’t be followed by anyone, so don’t make them overly cryptic or embarrassing. You’ve invited your family and friends to witness your vows in order to make your bond public, so think about your words from their point of view—your guests want to feel included in that moment, even if they’re not feeling exactly what you’re feeling. That means putting a soft limit on inside jokes, deeply personal anecdotes, obscure nicknames, or code words.

And then, shorten. Aim to have your vows last for about one minute or less per person. Believe me, it’s longer than it sounds. Get at the heart of what marrying this person means to you; pick the most important promises and make them well. If you have more to say, save the more personal thoughts and give your spouse a letter on the morning of the ceremony.

Practice

Memorization is optional, practicing is not.

Not only will practicing help with your delivery, but it’s also an important part of the editing process. Beth Stokes, a Humanist wedding officiant in Massachusetts and owner of Well Wed by Beth, says “My best advice for delivering vows is to practice. Especially practice saying the whole thing out loud. Send your partner out to dinner with friends while you walk around your place practicing. You’d be surprised how many words sound great on paper, but stiff and ungainly when spoken. Practice looking up while you read your vows, so you can actually look at your partner as you say the words. Beth advises that “Once you’ve got the right words for delivering your vows aloud, use different colored pens if you want to underline words for emphasis. Insert pauses that will allow you to look at your partner in those moments. You want to connect with your partner when saying your vows.”

It’s common to mumble or speak softly when reading, so practice your vows to make sure your family and friends will hear you. These are words that are meant to be heard by the assembled crowd, so check how they sound when spoken. Read your vows out loud to make sure they flow easily and watch out for tongue twisters and run-on sentences—both easy mistakes to make when you write marriage vows. And then, practice slowing down and speaking clearly. Beth notes that “unless you’re a professional speaker, you’re probably rushing through the reading. Aim for 150–170 words a minute. During the ceremony, see if you can pace your reading to a pretty relaxed inhale and exhale.”

Then do what you want

At the end of the day, they’re your words. Do what you want. Seriously. Your vows don’t even have to sound or read like marriage vows; you could write an essay, a sonnet, or rap them if that’s what is going to mean the most to you. Vows should sound like you, especially when you’re making promises to your partner. On this day of all days, you shouldn’t sound like someone else, so write vows that matter to you and feel authentic.

THE BEST SAMPLE WEDDING VOWS TO STEAL (OR BE INSPIRED BY)

Now that you know how to write your vows, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite vows from APW couples, along with marriage vows from religions across the world, to get you started. And yes, we’ve added some real vows—even special post-pandemic ones. Let’s look at some of the best real wedding vows we’ve come across, plus a selection of beautiful traditional vows from world religions.

Pandemic Inspired Vows

I promise to love you every day of our lives; even in the event that a pandemic caused by a bat virus turns the world upside down and forces us to quarantine.

I promise to cherish you for eternity; even if we are putting together backyard furniture during said pandemic because we didn’t want to pay for assembly and this resulted in my nose being bruised.

I will do my best to never forget to order our groceries a few days before we are out, knowing that Instacart will repeatedly tell me “no delivery times available”, which will, in turn, cause us to mass panic.

I hope to be your constant strength, even when I am certain every single day that the tickle in my throat is not in fact allergies but The Virus and that causes mini (big) mental breakdown.

I promise to continue learning with you, like reading crisis news articles to you out loud every single day when you absolutely did not ask me to. You’re welcome.

Most importantly, I vow to be one of the first to hoard toilet paper, as to save us from having to worry about where we will get our next roll. (Also this is a joke please do not stockpile TP, for the love of all that is good). And with these promises, I know we can build a life that we are proud of (in, or out, of quarantine). I love you. Wouldn’t want to be stuck inside with anyone else.

We Found the Most Incredibly Sweet Wedding Vows for Her

Photo by Anna Gomes

Looking for some inspiration when it comes to writing your wedding vows? Here are a few ideas to get the creative juices flowing…or some samples that you could snatch up and personalize as you see fit!

Even though real brides shared these wedding vows for her, they can easily work no matter the title you choose. From celebrant and bridegroom to gride or broom, these vows can be adapted to fit your lifestyle.

What Style Do You Need?

When it comes to writing your wedding vows, first, you’ll want to figure out the style you need. Are you having a religious ceremony? Chances are you’ll need to stick to the traditional wedding ceremony script. If you’re hoping to have non-traditional or secular wedding vows for her, then you can start from scratch! But what if you have writer’s block?

We’ve created a wedding vow guide to help you write the perfect sentiments, but here’s a few key tips for crafting wedding vows for her that will make your wedding guests get teary. 

  • Firstly, you’ll want to ask yourself a few questions about your partner. What do you love most about them? How do they make you feel? How do they make others feel? When did you first know they were ‘the one?’
  • Secondly, agree on the tone. Do you want them to be funny or serious? Or maybe something in between? 
  • Lastly, get feedback on your wedding vows. It sounds weird, but sharing them with a friend, sibling or even parent can help you figure out if you’re on the right track. After all, you’re going to be saying them in front of an audience…you want to make sure they think they’re sweet as well!

We did an entire podcast episode dedicated to wedding vows! Listen to it here. 

The Best Wedding Vows for Her (from Real Brides!)

We found these quotes from real brides, and love how thoughtful and sweet they all are. See if any resonate with you, and if so you can modify them to work with your own love story.

Carry You in My Heart

“You have made me feel more 
loved than I ever thought possible.
 Today, I give you all that I am,
 and all that I have.
 Just as I give you my hand to
hold today, I give you my heart,
 my faith, my life.
 I choose you today. And I
 would choose you again tomorrow.
 I would go on choosing you the day
 after, and every day for the rest
 of our lives. You are my once-in-a-
lifetime. I love you and I too will
 always carry you in my heart. “

Join You

“I join my life with yours. Wherever you go, I will go. Whatever you face, I will face.

Spread the Weight

“If you grow weak, I’ll be there to fight your battles for you. I’ll help you with your responsibilities and make your problems my own in order to spread the weight a bit more evenly.”

When Our Love is Simple

“I promise to love you in good times and in bad, when life seems easy and when it seems hard, when our love is simple, and when it is an effort. I promise to cherish you, and to always hold you in highest regard. These things I give to you today, and all the days of our life.”

Should-to-Shoulder

“If you have to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders, I’ll be standing shoulder-to-shoulder with you.”

Laugh With You and Cry With You

“I promise to love you without reservation, comfort you in times of distress, encourage you to achieve all of your goals, laugh with you and cry with you, grow with you in mind and spirit, always be open and honest with you, and cherish you for as long as we both shall live.”

Love You For Who You Are

“I will take you in my arms when you need to be held. I will listen when you need to talk. I will laugh with you in times of joy, and comfort you in times of sadness. I will love you for who you are, and help you to become all that you can be. I will age gracefully with you/grow old with you.”

Keep It Interesting

“I pledge to remain your companion and friend, I promise to be with you always, to care for you, and to love you no matter how far apart we may be. I will always show an interest in the things you do and your ideas. I will be with you in your heart, and keep you safely in mine. When you are happy, I will be happy with you. When you are sad, I will make you smile. I will encourage you to continue growing as an individual as we work toward our mutual goals. I stand with you as your friend and wife and acknowledge that your choices are valid ones. I promise to give you love, honesty, trust and commitment, and, in general, keep your life interesting as we grow old together.”

Joy, Strength, and Imagination

“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 attention, and to bring joy, strength and imagination to our relationship. I promise to keep myself open to you. I promise to grow along with you – to be willing to face changes as we both change in order to keep our relationship alive and exciting. I promise to love you in good times and in bad, with all I have to give and all I feel inside in the only way I know how completely and forever.”

My Hand, My Heart, My Love

“I will cherish our union and love you more each day than I did the day before. I will trust you and respect you, laugh with you and cry with you, loving you faithfully through good times and bad, regardless of the obstacles we may face together. I give you my hand, my heart, and my love, from this day forward for as long as we both shall live.”

Falling in Love More Each Day

“I, [Name], take you, [Name], to be my partner, loving what I know of you, and trusting what I do not yet know. I eagerly anticipate the chance to grow together, getting to know the [man/woman] you will become, and falling in love a little more each day.”

Make Sure There is Coffee

“I promise to grow with you and support you. I promise to be patient, understanding, and kind. I promise to listen and share. I promise to create, to explore, and be curious. In good times and in bad, I promise to love you. I will make sure there is always coffee. I promise to be my best for myself, for us, and for our future together.”

To Inspire and To Respond

“[Name], I take you to be my husband from this point forward, to join with you and to share all that is to come, to be your faithful wife, to give and to receive, to speak and to listen, to inspire and to respond. This will be a commitment made in love, kept in faith, and eternally made new.”

Below, we’ve compiled some of our most favorite quotes that could be perfect wedding vows for her!

“When you trip over love, it is easy to get up. But when you fall in love, it is impossible to stand again.”— Albert Einstein

“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 then when I fall asleep your eyes close.”– Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

Romantic Wedding Vows | Minted

Write out three to five promises you want to make to your partner. You may end up including more in your final vows or you may settle on one perfect promise that you want to highlight, but these promises are the core of your vows, so give yourself time to come up with a few good options.

Speaking of time, we recommend scheduling a block of private time to write out your vows. Don’t think you can jot down some notes on the train ride home from work or while standing in line at the market. Your vows will sound rushed and won’t have the deep, romantic feel you want to convey. Plan to head to somewhere you can be one with your thoughts, whether that be at your favorite coffee shop, a peaceful park, or a quiet room. After all, this may be one of the most important and memorable articles of writing you will ever be tasked to compose.

Your intimate moments with your partner are undoubtedly a crucial part of your relationship, but it’s advised that you leave that kind of romance out of your vows. No matter how beautifully you can write, these sorts of statements tend to make guests uncomfortable and don’t often stand the test of time. If you really feel it’s important to share these thoughts with the love of your life, save them for after the ceremony and reception, when the two of you finally get the opportunity to be alone.

Once you have your vows complete, we recommend placing a copy in your pocket on your wedding day, as well as giving a copy to your best man or bridesmaid for backup. You will have so many events to keep track of and guests to engage with socially throughout the day, it can be easy to misplace your vows. You don’t want to end up improvising your vows after investing so much time to get them exactly right. You should probably also have a tissue or two in your pocket in case you tear up or you make your loved one cry while reading your vows.

Wedding oath of the bride and groom

Bride and Groom Wedding Vows have long been a tradition at many European weddings.Sometimes the most important question in the life of young people is “do you take this woman (this man) as your wife (husband)?” answering yes is not enough. The tradition of the wedding vow in our country is a new and rare phenomenon, so let’s look at this issue in more detail.

To begin with, each country has its own characteristics when pronouncing wedding vows. For example, among Europeans, oaths written with their own hand are most often practiced. In the land of the rising sun in Japan, when young people exchange vows, not only a couple in love, but two clans stand face to face.So it is not only the couple who are responsible for keeping the promises made at the altar, but also their families. In Pakistan, it is not customary to make wedding promises before 3 days of the celebration. For Jews, only the groom takes a wedding vow, while the bride does not make vows. For Muslims, vows are not at all a tradition; instead, the couple listens carefully to the priest, he tells them about their duties in marriage and responsibility to God and people. But in Hinduism there are the so-called “7 steps”. Taking one step forward, the couple makes a promise – to be faithful, to love their chosen one or chosen one, to respect each other, to give healthy children, and so on.

Conventionally, wedding vows can be divided into comic and solemn ones. The latter also includes religious vows and oaths pronounced in the registry office. But in a warm company and at a festive table, you can surprise guests with comic variations. Of course, an oath is something special and intimate, but it is at a wedding that lovers demonstrate their feelings to the public, so why not bring another touching and memorable moment to the celebration?

An oath can sound both in prose and in the form of a poem – and it sounds interesting, and it is more convenient to memorize it.Of course, it’s easiest to copy and retell someone else’s oath, but it’s much better to start drawing it yourself. Moreover, no one asks you to write poems or odes – it is enough that the words are sincere and come from the very heart, then rhyme is not needed. Of course, it would be good to write down your oath on a piece of paper, so that you do not inadvertently forget at the most crucial moment. It is best to draw it up with a partner.

Basically, a wedding vow consists of three parts. The first is essentially a statement of fact, you admit that a person is dear to you, you want to connect your life with him and be legally married.The second part is the embodiment of your feelings for your partner. Try to say it in such a way that not only he, but also those present will know about your attitude – it is enough just to describe what you are experiencing. And finally, the third part is obligations, because a legal marriage is based not only on passion, but also on mutual understanding and respect, each party must take on certain responsibilities. They can be different – starting with a promise to be together in grief and joy and ending with a comic appeal not to scold your wife for a wrecked car or not nag your husband for delays at work.

The words of oath do not have to be pronounced: they can be sung. True, for this you need at least to have minimal musical skills and good ear, otherwise the oath will look comical, and no one will appreciate the seriousness of the moment. If desired, the newlyweds can make symbolic designations for their oath – exchange touching souvenirs, which will later be associated with love, loyalty and tenderness. A very interesting moment will be the flag of a young family. It can be sewn by yourself or to order.At the same time, study the symbolism of flowers in advance and, when taking an oath, back it up not only with words, but also with shades of the flag. For example, there is a red color on our flag – this is love and passion, I swear to love my soul mate and I will do everything so that the fire of our passion does not go out. Green is the color of harmony, I promise, for my part, to do everything possible so that our relations do not fade away, but continue to develop, etc.

An oath that is written on balloons or tied to the legs of pigeons will look romantic – you send your confessions and promises to heaven, and this is where happy marriages are concluded.

Examples of wedding vows of the bride and groom

The traditional vow looks like this:

“I swear to be with you in joy and sorrow, sickness and health, in wealth and poverty, to love you and to protect our union until the end of life.”

The oath can be pronounced by the presenter or the toastmaster; it is pronounced separately by the bride and groom:

For the groom:

– Do you swear to be an exemplary spouse, protector and loyal friend?

Groom: – I swear!

– Do you swear to love your spouse (name) more than life?

Groom: – I swear!

“Do you swear to take care of her?”

Groom: – I swear!

– Do you swear to be kind, patient, so that there is no room for offenses in your house?

Groom: – I swear!

For the bride:

– Do you swear (name of the bride) to pity and love her husband, always be friendly and gentle?

Bride: – I swear!

– Bake pies, raise children, and meet your husband from work in the evening?

Bride: – I swear!

– Do you swear not to scold him for trifles and not allow insults into the house?

Bride: – I swear!

Vows of the bride and groom in verse

We wish you, dear ones, love and happiness to you,

Let the bad weather go around.

Now swear words before us,

And confirm your loyalty by deeds.

Do you swear to walk the road of life,

Supporting each other along the way.

Newlyweds: – We swear!

Do you swear to family and friends

Divide both joy and sorrow in half.

Newlyweds: – We swear!

You swear (name of the groom) you will be an exemplary spouse,

A courageous and devoted friend as a defender?

Groom: – I swear!

You swear, (name of the bride) to love a spouse,

Support, support in everything to him?

Bride: – I swear!

Impromptu Oath

Practiced and such an option as an impromptu oath, when the bride and groom say the words that come to their mind.Such an oath does not require poetry and complex phrases – it is enough to express what lies in the heart. For example:

Bridegroom: “In front of everyone here, I promise to love you and take care of you. I accept you with all the advantages and disadvantages and in return I ask the same. I will protect and help you if you need it, and I am ready to go hand in hand with you all your life. ”

Bride: “I accept your oath and in return I ask you to hear mine. I promise to love and respect you as my spouse.Do not swear over trifles, bring warmth and comfort into the house, provide you with help and support when you need it. I choose you as a person with whom I want to go all my life. ”

Vow of Romance

The moment I saw you for the first time, I realized that it was with you that I want to walk hand in hand through life. You make me better, kinder, brighter, so I want to promise that no matter what happens to be faithful and honest with you. To love and respect you, to save you from adversity and help in everything.I ask you to become my lawful wife and walk with me through life. And let the people gathered here become witnesses of my sincerity and straightforwardness. I would like to repeat that the main thing in oaths is sincerity, no pretentious and pompous words are needed, because even the simplest speeches can convey your feelings and make your oath solemn and unique.

How to Write Wedding Vows: A Procrastinator’s Guide

Epaga PHOTOS

So tomorrow is a big day … and you should have finished writing your wedding vows a month ago.Or maybe you both agreed not to write your own wedding vows and then changed your mind the day before walking down the aisle. Whatever the situation, now you need to get down to paper – and quickly.

Take a deep breath first. Your fiancé (s) probably knows he is marrying a procrastinator and loves you no matter what. But you should still try to impress your future spouse by writing some truly stunning wedding vows that you seem to have spent weeks on them.Ready?

Here’s how to write your wedding vows in 11 easy steps.

1. Decide in what tone you want to take your wedding vows.

Don’t try to be who you are not. If you are a stupid person, you can add a little humor to your wedding vows. Especially on this day, you do not want to be anyone but yourself. Cheerful, musical, sentimental or concise, stay true to yourself.

One big rule of thumb for writing your own wedding vows? They should echo the tone of your wedding, be it casual, elegant, or themed.Annie Lee, wedding planner at Daughter of Design in New York, NY, says: “I believe in personal vows by sharing the little inner moments of everyday life that make people feel like they know you. Guests should leave with the feeling that they have become closer to the couple after the wedding. ”

2. Write whatever comes to your mind.

There is actually science behind it: Free writing is an effective way to express all your thoughts on one page. This way you can see them all in one place.Not to mention, it makes your brain work. Think: if you worry too much about what you are going to put on the page, you will never write anything at all. And remember, none of these words should ever see daylight. They are just for you. And if you need some more inspiration …

3. Look at the photos that show you and your partner from your relationship.

If you need a little extra sentimental inspiration, photography tends to evoke emotion.Review your favorite early photos of the two of you as a couple to remember feelings from the beginning of your relationship. Try to recall memories such as the moment you first saw your future spouse, the moment you knew you were in love, or the moment you found out you wanted to marry him. Regardless of whether these memories remain in your final wedding vows, going back to the early days will trigger important emotions (which is the key to writing your own vows).JP Reynolds of JPR Weddings in Sherman Oaks, California recommends starting your personal wedding vows by remembering the moment you realized your partner was your one and only.

4. Choose your favorite memories.

After you’ve made your trip down memory lane, it’s time to pick your favorites. Luckily for you, wedding vows should be relatively short. Try to preserve one or two particularly meaningful memories; the examples above, such as the moment you know you are in love, are good options.These memories don’t have to completely cover your entire relationship, because that is not possible. Think about the classics – when you look back at your wedding 20 years from now, what memories will remain vivid and important in your mind? Express your gratitude for everything your partner has given you.

5. Think about your guests.

Stay away from internal jokes because while these jokes may be meaningful to you and your spouse, you don’t want to exclude your guests.You also shouldn’t write anything too personal or embarrassing about your wedding vows – your partner may not like sharing intimate details with everyone you know!

6. Come up with some promises.

Wedding vows are made up of promises, and vague and specific promises are needed to make the best handwritten vows. Think big: “I promise to always cherish you” or “I swear to always be honest about what I think about.” Also, think about the little things: “I promise to always make coffee for two in the morning” or “I promise to comfort you when your favorite team loses.”Promises are also a great place in your wedding vows to showcase both your serious, sentimental side and your funny side. For each big picture promise, you can include a more specific one. Try changing your language using words such as “vow,” “promise,” or simple “I will.”

7. Think about the future with your partner.

Of course, this is all day. You and your spouse declare your partnership and begin to build a life together in front of family and friends.At this point in writing your wedding vow, you should start thinking about what you will do with your spouse in the future. This part is a little different from your promises, where you talked about what role you will play in the development of your relationship. Now talk about what lies ahead – your goals and the adventures you want to go through. This is the time when you can talk about what kind of couple you are. Whether you are an adventure couple, a career oriented couple, or a creative couple, this section of your vows should reflect that.For example, “I can’t wait to collect art with you until we get old” or “I look forward to new adventures.”

8. Complete your wedding vows.

Find out what the last phrase of your vow should be. JP Reynolds recommends saying, “I accept you as my husband / wife” in his promises and wedding vows – “this is the phrase that turns your words of love into an oath”. Complete your vow with love and accent.

9. Edit it.

At this stage, you had to write down some memories, choose your favorites, make some promises, and look to the future. Luckily for you procrastinator, wedding vows should be no more than a minute or two. They can be one of the most important parts of the ceremony, but personal wedding vows should not be dragged out. If something is important, you only need to say it once, underlining it.

10. Practice aloud.

Anyone will tell you that you need to practice, and unfortunately, even if you waited until the last minute to write your wedding vows, this step cannot be skipped.Practice once and time yourself. Then edit it some more. You will most likely speak faster when you are nervous during the ceremony, so keep this in mind as you practice – and try to speak as slowly as possible, even if it sounds a little funny to you. Plan where you will make meaningful breaks and write them in the margin. Of course, you should not put too much pressure on yourself, especially since there is not much time left before the ceremony. Practice this several times until you stumble with any words and pat yourself on the back.

11. Make a clean copy for yourself.

Even if you are working on it at the last minute, the copy you bring to your wedding should look beautiful and easy to read. Make a copy without crossing out or eraser marks. Write where you want to pause. Annie Lee of Daughter of Design noted that this piece of paper will “end up in photographs.” I suggest a nice note card that matches the colors of the wedding, or a small notebook or notepad. “You can make two copies and give one to your officer so they can advise you if necessary.

Whatever tips you may find, including these, don’t worry about writing wedding vows. Be laconic, but be yourself. You don’t have to suddenly become a master of words to make memorable vows. They will be meaningful because you wrote them.

Comic oaths of the bride and groom

Oh, this oath of the bride and groom at the wedding …

An important oath of the bride and groom at the wedding can be funny, funny, and sometimes touching to tears … Which one you choose is up to you.

The oath tradition came to us from Western Europe and quickly takes root, because it is an interesting and creative way to please the guests of the ceremony, and once again express the depth of your feelings to your loved one, especially on your wedding day …

However, it is not always easy to find the right words that would help to formulate your thoughts and emotions as accurately as possible and at the same time not make it sound dry and boring for the listeners.Therefore, it is worth taking a look at five simple tips that will diversify the text of a future wedding vow.

Don’t be afraid to take an example

Of course, many people want their speech to be unique. It’s really embarrassing to confess your love with a memorized text written by some stranger. But that doesn’t mean you can’t look for inspiration in the vows of others.

A lot of texts can be found online, and there are also videos from weddings, where you can learn something new not only for the oath itself, but also for the manner of its presentation.

[sc name = ”idea” data-text = ”The video makes it easier to see which moments were good and which mistakes should not be repeated.” ]

Write in your wedding vow whatever you think

People tend to strive to embellish reality, but in fact it only dampens the creative impulse. After all, if you don’t want some words to be heard in front of the guests, you can cross them out later in the editing process.

When expressing ideas in writing, it is often easier to come up with a new solution and, perhaps, understand that a thought that seemed banal does not sound so bad … and even if you hesitate, or forget the thought-phrase, you will not be condemned, but on the contrary, written off for such an exciting atmosphere …

Practice in front of the mirror

Some find it easier to write down while others want to immediately voice their thoughts.One way or another, everyone will have to go two ways, because if, as a result, the oath has to be voiced, it is not superfluous to practice so that unpleasant incidents do not arise in the future.

[sc name = ”idea” data-text = ”Sometimes the text of the oath may sound very different than it reads on paper. This is due to the complete absence of a certain rhythm in it, or vice versa – abundance, which makes it sound like a ridiculous nursery rhyme ”].

Funny and comic texts of the wedding vow:

Text for the touching oath of the bride and groom:

Discuss the format with the future groom or bride in any case, it is worth letting him or her know about the total length of your speech, her style, if such is important, so that in response he or she can prepare a reciprocal oath at the level.

Make your vow personal

Speech personality adds references to jokes that are clear to the audience or shared moments. Although it may seem awkward at times, a wedding is a celebration of feelings, so any manifestation of feelings cannot be condemned.

Bis party

I recently came across a funny picture (see below).

And she amused me so much that I had to write something comic for her. Wedding vows were the first to come to mind.

I wrote a little)

You can use them at any wedding from the first to the crown, including chintz, porcelain, gold and others.

But!

On one condition – if the newlyweds are tuned in to humor. If the mood is different, then select the appropriate texts.

But if the course is for fun and jokes (which is welcome!), Then add to these vows also a comic wedding ceremony. I deliberately did NOT reread it now, so that the words of solemn promises were slightly different.

Getting started))

Comic wedding vows

I publish them in full for the sake of harmony of the text, but they must be pronounced one by one. And it is even better to read them in the same sequence:

  • first, one paragraph is pronounced by the groom, then – one paragraph bride
  • again – the groom, again – the bride
  • begins the gentleman, the lady finishes.

In the sense that the bride has the final say.

(Forgive me, grooms, and be wiser – agree)))

====================

Groom’s wedding vow

In front of the tense faces of those present in the hall, as well as in front of the faces of historical figures on the banknotes that you gave us and, I hope, will present, I solemnly swear:

  • To love and cherish my beloved wife, because I will always remember how dear she is I got it.
  • I swear to remember the date of the wedding for the rest of my life, but just in case I will write it on all the photos – so that I know where to double-check.
  • I swear I’m getting married because I want to kiss you always and legally, not because I’m tired of eating hamburgers and pizza.
  • I swear to watch TV less than usual during my honeymoon, namely – no more than 3 hours a day, and if football – then no longer than the final, as well as extra time and all post-match penalties.
  • =====================

    Wedding vow of the bride

  • I carefully swear to always love and support my beloved husband. Because I will also remember for a long time HOW I got it. But I won’t tell anyone about this, not even him.
  • And I swear NOT to transfer photos to another place and NOT to watch from afar as you will search for them in panic. Because you will most likely forget the date of the wedding.

    But this will never become a reason for a quarrel.I swear!

  • I swear that I will kiss you as passionately as I did before the wedding. And I will order pizza for myself only when you are at work.
  • And I swear that during our honeymoon we won’t have a TV at all – not only in the room, but also within a kilometer radius.

    And if suddenly someone tries to change the situation in their favor ( looked sternly at the groom ), then he will have to feel like Signor Robinson for a month. Because then not only the TV will disappear, but also the light, the Internet, mobile communications and all antennas in the environs.Only I will stay – your Friday, dear ( blow a kiss towards the groom ).

    And I will definitely fulfill this oath. Unlike some others)

  • =====================

    Next (or – instead of) you substitute specific preferences and character traits of your newlyweds, and you can read your vows instead – just like a funny surprise monologue.

    Or hand out the texts of a comic wedding vow to Him and Her, but so that they do not know what is written in the other half.They will find out when they will read in turn. A little intrigue is very appropriate here.

    In general, do according to the situation, the main thing is to do)

    And write!

    With a wish to all worthy grooms the same good brides,

    Yours, Evelina Shesternenko.

    The groom’s oath on the ransom – funny cards with promises, the oath

    Traditionally, the ransom is carried out by the bridesmaids of the bride and groom, and all organization activities fall on their shoulders.They are the ones who create funny contests, jokes, come up with questions, and also choose the style or theme of this part of the holiday.

    Men, on the other hand, often have nothing to do with tests, but only obediently perform them. But, although this part of the celebration refers to women’s entertainment, there is an opportunity to diversify the event – the groom’s vow of ransom. A young man can create this vow in secret from the girls, and at their request.

    The groom’s oath for the ransom of the bride

    The groom is the main character in the ransom, so it is natural that he must prove his love.One of these methods is considered to be a funny oath, which, as it were, is a rehearsal of the one that will be pronounced at the ceremony.

    Therefore, it is worthwhile to think in advance what words will be said if the presenters demand a guarantee that their girlfriend will be happy in marriage. To get inspired, you can find the words of the oath on specialized sites, but first you need to decide in what form it will be written.

    How to make promise cards for the groom

    If you do not want to express vows, you can use cards with promises. This is an easier method to perform, because all the words are already written and accompanied by visual design.But creating them will take time and resources.

    What words to choose for cards:

  • Phrases do not have to be serious, most often such cards contain something comic related to family life. But so that the promises do not seem monotonous, words about love and romance should be added.
  • Oaths can consist of one line or several, and it is good if a large text is rhymed.
  • Promises can be directed to both the future wife and her relatives.
  • Apart from promises, an important element is the design chosen. The cards can depict what they swear – if it is material.

    These cards will look tacky and out of place. Examples of phrases that can be written on cards:

  • Kiss 3 times every morning.
  • Ready to serve breakfast in bed, on weekends and holidays!
  • Always go grocery shopping for the week and bring everything on the list!
  • Go to the cinema, theater or restaurant every week.
  • I promise to give gifts for no reason, because attention is the key to family happiness!
  • I swear to learn how to massage and constantly use this skill for its intended purpose.
  • Let’s get a dog – morning and evening walks are mine!
  • Cooking mulled wine for his wife in inclement weather.
  • Striptease is a difficult business – but for my wife I am ready to try!
  • I promise to go with her to dance classes or other pair classes!
  • I swear not to forget to talk about tender feelings.
  • I will find owners for all matched puppies and kittens.
  • I swear to accompany you on shopping at the first request (lost my head from love).
  • I promise to let go for a walk with my friends.
  • I promise your mom flowers, dad – sweets, the main thing is not to mix them up.
  • I will buy a fur coat.
  • Melodrama? I agree!
  • Therefore, if pictures and photographs are used for different promises, then you should choose them in the same color scheme, complementing them with an abstract pattern along the edges.

    It should also be remembered that all cards must be in color, with a fairly large print. It is permissible to choose any style of letters – if only they are easy to read.

    Cards are best printed on thin A5 cardboard, because ordinary paper will definitely be remembered and will look unpresentable. If the pictures are made in a romantic style, but using different images, then you can tie a satin ribbon with a bow on each postcard.

    You should choose what will be shown on the front side – it can be the words “I swear” or “I promise”, or a large picture of what the groom is going to do. On the reverse side, write the phrase itself, and place the miniatures of the promise next to it.

    It is desirable that both sides have the same background . If the font is pretentious, then the background should be monochromatic, and if the letters are simple, then abstract patterns can be used for the background.

    These cards can be made by the bridesmaids and the man will buy or receive them as a fine. Also, postcards can be created by the groom together with the witness, then they use them instead of bills. But it is important to remember that if you completely replace the money, it will seem that they are trying to save money on the ransom.

    In this video – an interesting oath of the groom on the ransom of the bride:

    The promises that the groom makes are joy for the bride’s family and friends, because it shows the degree to which the man loves her. And funny vows demonstrate that a man is not angry, capable of laughing both at others and at himself.What kind of promise cards would you like to receive?

    The oath of the bride and groom in verse and prose, a selection of touching, comic, religious and funny videos

    In recent decades, our newlyweds have adopted many traditions from the West – these are field marriage registrations, themed style of events.One of the traditional parts of the Western wedding ceremony is the swearing of an oath by the newlyweds to each other.

    This is always a touching and beautiful event, because, as a rule, speech is a declaration of love, a promise of fidelity, devotion.

    The heroes of the occasion can agree to come up with a text for the oath, and then pronounce it during the ceremony – this event will not leave anyone indifferent.

    The wedding vow is usually held in public among the guests, right before the moment of official registration.Both spouses should understand that her pronunciation is a solemn moment that will not be repeated again, therefore, the choice of words for speech should be taken seriously.

    In order for the oath to sound truly beautiful during the ceremony, it is necessary to start writing long before the wedding celebration.

    In addition to the fact that the written version will insure against unexpected forgetfulness, if the words fly out of their heads, the spouses will be able to keep touching pieces of paper with a speech for a long time.

    When deciding how to say the oath, you need to avoid overconfidence.Some young people may consider themselves to be great orators and think they can find words in any situation, so they choose improvisation during the oath speech.

    But even if it is, it will not hurt to play it safe, because who guarantees that in such an exciting moment of life it will turn out not to be speechless? Uncertain mumbling can spoil the solemn moment of pronouncing a wedding vow a little, especially if the partner is much better prepared.

    When choosing the words for the vows, the bride and groom need to remember that the speech should not be too protracted – just a few words are needed to say the most important thing.

    A short but capacious text expressing sincere feelings can be forever remembered by those present. While taking the oath, it is worth looking into the eyes of the groom / bride, because these beautiful words are addressed to him / her.

    A few small recommendations that will help you write beautiful speeches for the bride and groom:

    When drawing up a wedding vow, you need to spend the evening in a calm atmosphere so that nothing distracts from your own thoughts.

    Coming up with the text, you need to remember: how did you meet, was this love at first sight or the gradual realization that without this person your future life cannot be imagined? Remember the moments that made you happy – first dates, falling in love, kissing.

    Think what changed in your life when the groom appeared? Focusing on these thoughts, give them an outlet on a piece of paper.

    The first version of the words of the wedding vow will probably be too long, there may be a lot of repetitions and emotional digressions, but you should not worry.

    Over time, careful editing will help you choose the words that will become the most important – this will be the oath speech.

    Many men are not as emotional as women, but if you agree to a wedding vow, you need to try. When coming up with a speech, be sure to avoid awkward comparisons, such as, “You are the best woman I’ve ever known,” or “You care about me the way my mother does.” Even if in theory this is good news, the bride may not be happy with such words.

    You need to focus on what makes the hero of the occasion of your beloved, say a sincere oath, from your heart. Even if the wedding vow is not too poetic, it will definitely touch the hero of the occasion, because the best words are words spoken from the heart. Believe me, in many years she will remember a sincere confession coming from her heart.

We will talk about it further.

Therefore, in the text of the promise, you can find words such as “you swear”, “you promise”, “you will, I agree (-sen)”, etc.The oath of allegiance of newlyweds contains direct speech, enumerations, interrogative and exclamation sentences, and may also consist of questions and answers to them.

    • to love and protect;
    • to keep the warmth of the family hearth;
    • live in peace and harmony;
    • to help each other in difficult times;

    How can oaths differ?

    If you look well, you can always find a ready-made sample of the oath of the newlyweds. For example, you can do this using our article. However, most often the text for the oath is arbitrary and it is created on an individual basis. Therefore, the difference between the wedding vow is in its text.

    In addition, when comparing oath promises, it is important to take into account the age component. For example, at 18-20 years old, lovers are more suitable for a comic form of an oath.This interpretation will cheer up both the newlyweds and the guests.

    If two future spouses decide to sign at a later age (within 25-45 years), then the standard text drafting scheme is ideal for them. Much less often are elderly people at the altar who are satisfied with a short promise with a few standard questions. What is it, this vow of the newlyweds “When I will be 85 years old”? We will give the answer to this question below.

    How to write an oath yourself?

    In order to write a solemn promise, the newlyweds just need to take into account certain rules.

    First, don’t make your text too long. A protracted ceremony, as well as a protracted speech, will have a repulsive and annoying factor. Therefore, do not tire your guests and relatives – make the text as concise as possible.

    Secondly, the oath of the newlyweds includes questions and answers. Therefore, it would be useful to look into the sample of such a promise in order to select the appropriate questions. Subsequently, they can be reformulated and redone as you see fit.

    Thirdly, when making a speech (especially for males), try to speak in general phrases and avoid dubious comparisons like “There were no other girls like you”, “I loved many women, but you exceeded all my expectations “.

    Fourth, it is best to write the text for the solemn promise on a draft. This way you can make corrections and corrections together.

    And finally, your vow of newlyweds should be drawn up taking into account the wishes and comments of each other.

    Summary: follow our advice and your vow will be the best!

    Wedding vows of the bride and groom give the wedding ceremony a special atmosphere.

    To make them sound beautiful, you need to prepare the words in advance. A few of our simple tips will help you get it right.

    Writing an oath – the subtleties of the process

    Taking vows at a wedding ceremony is an old but touching tradition.

    If you do not want to deviate from this tradition, prepare in advance.On the Internet, you can find many options for vows from the bride to the groom and from the groom to the bride, but it is still better to write your own to convey the full depth of feelings, the power of love and devotion.

    Writing an oath should be broken down into several stages. First, jot down on a piece of paper any ideas and thoughts that you would like to voice in an oath. It is pertinent to mention the following in the oath:

    • about the reverent attitude towards the second half;
    • about the power of love;
    • about pleasant moments together;
    • about the readiness to be together “in sorrow and in happiness”, to go on deeds;
    • about devotion and loyalty;
    • about communication to keep the family hearth and take care of a loved one;
    • about their intentions to live a happy life together.

    When the key messages are outlined, pick the key points. The vow doesn’t have to be long. Please note that it should not take more than 2 minutes to read it. This will help you determine the size of the text.

    Read the oath aloud to understand how beautiful it sounds, whether you like everything.

    How to draw up a wedding vow correctly?

    Most newlyweds memorize the written text, but the ceremony is usually accompanied by excitement and worries, so it is easy to forget the words and hesitate.To prevent this from happening, make a beautiful oath.

    Get creative with this point and use the following items to write your oath text:

    1. postcard;
    2. 90,059 roll of paper;

    3. paper tape;
    4. 90,059 old airline tickets from a shared trip;

      90,059 sheets from the menu of your favorite restaurant and so on.

    Decorate the written oath beautifully with ribbons, hearts, flowers and other objects.The bundle can be decorated with a beautiful fluffy bow. Connect your imagination and use it, without forgetting about the style of the wedding.

    How to read an oath?

    To read the oath beautifully, you need to know a few simple rules:

    • you need to pronounce the oath slowly, but legibly;
    • Accentuate the most important points by raising your voice;
    • it is better if the oath is accompanied by romantic music;
    • Practice pronouncing the oath in front of the mirror or relatives in advance so as not to get confused at the ceremony.

    Accompanying music can be either an instrumental classical melody (Bach, Mozart, Vivaldi, etc.) or a favorite song of the newlyweds. The composition should be a beautiful background and complementary element, so the choice must be approached with all responsibility.

    After reading the vows, the bride and groom can exchange souvenirs that have their own hidden meaning for them. Also, the newlyweds can release pigeons into the sky or release balloons, inside which are text notes with vows.

    The wedding vow is the ceremony in which you can put the maximum of your imagination and love. Do not be afraid to embody ideas and a wonderful wedding for you!

    Video of the touching wedding vows of the bride and groom

    No wedding ceremony is complete without the vows that the bride and groom make to each other when exchanging wedding rings. The vow is the culmination of the entire wedding ceremony. Wedding vows are a verbal confirmation of each party to remain faithful and love, to share both joy and sorrow.

    Like many other wedding traditions, wedding vows are present in the customs of almost everyone. But in each country the ceremony of the wedding vow has its own individuality and originality, for example:

    • In Europe, it is customary to independently write the words for the oath
    • In Eastern cultures, not only the newlyweds swear, but also the relatives present on both sides. This tradition further strengthens family and family ties
    • In Jewish culture, only the groom takes an oath, and the bride is released from obligations
    • Muslims do not have this tradition at all, the mullah reads the Holy Scripture to the young, explaining how they should behave in marriage
    • In Hinduism, at a wedding, it is customary to take seven steps towards each other.At every step, the bride and groom make vows and promises

    How to make a wedding vow

    When preparing a wedding ceremony, very often the bride and groom have a question about how to make an oath correctly. Of course, the text of the wedding vow can be borrowed from our website, but it’s still better to write and learn the wedding vow yourself. There are no specific templates for wedding vows, the main thing is that your words come from a pure heart, and that your words do not diverge from your deeds.It is recommended that you write the oath on a piece of paper. This is necessary in order not to forget all the prepared words during the wedding ceremony from excitement.

    We suggest that you familiarize yourself with the algorithm for drawing up wedding vows. What does an oath consist of? Usually a wedding vow consists of three parts:

    1. The first part is a declaration of love
    2. The second part – revealing your feelings in relation to a loved one
    3. The third part – the oath to be faithful, to love and be always together under any circumstances

    The oath spoken should not be very long, it usually lasts no more than two minutes.

    Groom’s vows

    Since after the wedding the groom becomes the husband and the head of the new family, then duties are traditionally assigned to him – respect for the wife, material security, loyalty, spiritual unity, and so on. All of these points can be included in a wedding vow, for example:

    1. I am taking you as my legal wife.

      Knowing that in my heart you will always be my only one, my faithful partner in life, and my true love,
      I promise to give you all the best.What I have and ask you for no more than you can give me.
      I promise to accept you for who you are, because that is how I loved you

      I promise to be open to you, to share with you my inner fears and feelings, secrets and dreams.
      I promise to grow with you to be ready to face any change, because we both change in order to keep our relationship alive and exciting.
      And, of course, I promise to love you in joy and sorrow and give you everything that I have … completely and always

    2. In front of all those present, I promise to love you and take care of you.I accept you with all the advantages and disadvantages and in return I ask the same. I will protect and help you if you need it, and I am ready to go hand in hand with you all my life.
    3. At the moment when I first saw you, I realized that it was with you that I want to walk hand in hand through life. You make me better, kinder, brighter, so I want to promise that no matter what happens to be faithful and honest with you. To love and respect you, to save you from adversity and help in everything. I ask you to become my lawful wife and walk with me through life.And may the people gathered here become witnesses of my sincerity and straightforwardness
    4. Wherever you are and whatever happens to you, wear this ring. For even if you lose the whole world, but keep the ring, the world will be born again for you, because it contains all my love for you. So, keep it and know that my life belongs to you from now on
    5. I love you. Today is a special day.

    If you also decide to swear allegiance to each other, but do not know how to write a beautiful wedding vow
    for the ceremony, the site will help you.We present you the most beautiful bride vows
    .

    Wedding vow: “Thank you …”

    Thanks to you, I laugh again, I smile, I have learned to dream again. I see our happy future ahead and will happily spend the rest of my life with you. I will take care of you to support you in difficult times. I swear loyalty and devotion to you for the rest of my life!

    Promise of the bride

    Having met you, I learned the meaning of true love. I promise that as long as I live, I will honor and respect you.I will become better for you and will work to make our relationship better every year. I promise to be honest and listen to you, always respect your opinion. I promise that I will be faithful to you in body and soul. I promise to be yours forever.

    I …. (name and surname) love you and I know that you … (name and surname) also love me. Therefore, I am ready to be your wife. For so many years I have asked God to send me a man in whom I will be sure. And now he fulfilled my request, and you are standing in front of me.I vow to love you, listen and serve you faithfully. As Jesus told us: “A wife should be submissive to her husband as she is submissive to God.” Just as God is the head of everything, so the husband is the head of the family. I give myself to you and I swear allegiance.

    “Thank you for being”

    Now, looking into your eyes, I understand how much I love you! Once you were just the embodiment of my dream, now it has come true. Thank you for everything you do for me, thank you for making my life meaningful. I give my life into your hands, my soul and heart belong only to you.

    “I take command into my own hands …” (humorously)

    “I take command into my own hands …”

    Was yesterday (mother’s surname), today already (groom’s surname). Well, I’m taking command. And I promise there will never be boredom in our house! I swear not to be very moody, only on a few days. I honestly promise that I will always find a use for my spouse in the house! I will honestly accept my salary every month, sending it in the right direction. I promise, lunch and dinner are always ready on the table, so that the union is strong and friendly.I will not abandon my husband, because for me he is the best and the best. In offense, I will not give it to anyone! Well, if necessary, I will beat him myself!

    Oath of the newlyweds
    is the final chord of the historical block, which I spend at the wedding
    . If we have not met with you yet, I will say that this is an exclusive moment, I put it piece by piece from several wedding episodes. Here there is a dance between a father and a bride, lighting up the hearth, giving the father’s sword to the groom, the oath of the young.Separately, all these moments are boring and not dynamic, but in the context of this theatrical block they are rather romantic and melodramatic. The girls are jealous and sometimes even cry at the end. Well, the parents really like it.

    There are several options for the oath of the newlyweds – if you wish, you can edit and embellish them. True, this text should not be dragged out either. Here I add versions of poems from the newlyweds themselves.

    We record these words in the studio, as it should be IN ADVANCE !!! We process the voice and add it to the music.The studio is located on the territory of the ZIL plant, m. Avtozavodskaya. We specify the directions in advance.

    We read the text in turn

    , approx. 2-4 lines
    the groom then the bride. You come, try your recitative skills a couple of times in front of a microphone, and then we record. Recording cost at the moment: 1500. And you can easily tell everyone that you recorded in the studio LOVE-radio or Europa-PLUS. The recording can be downloaded from us right during the wedding, if you bring your flash drive.And you still have to bring it. It will be the first dance and some of your favorite songs to the disco.
