Wedding Vow Ideas

Vows are a wonderful way to express your love on your wedding day.  Contained within those vows are the seeds of dreams to come true, and intentions for your married life. For many people, vows are the hallmark of the wedding ceremony. Imprinted in many of a mind is the romantic image of a loving couple looking deeply into one another’s eyes and calmly vowing their love and devotion on their wedding day. Here are some sample vows.  You can download several more here.


I, Bride/Groom, take you/thee Groom/Bride, to be my wife/husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish; and I promise to be faithful to you until death do us part.

All that I am and all that I have
I offer to you, my beloved,
    in joy
    in service
    in sacred union.

Because I have never known such a love
I take you now, for forever
to be my dear husband /wife.

I, Bride, take you/thee, Groom,
to be my lawfully wedded husband,
secure in the knowledge that you will be
my constant friend,
my faithful partner in life,
and my one true love.
On this special day,
I give to you
in the presence of God and these witnesses
my sacred promise to stay by your side as your wife
in sickness and in health,
in joy and in sorrow, as well as
through the good times and the bad.
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.

I, Bride, choose you, Groom, to be my husband,
to respect you in our successes and in your failures,
to care for you in sickness and in health,
to nurture you, and to grow with you
all the days of my life.
With this ring, you have my life.
