wedding vows

Sometimes it is hard to put into words, the feelings of the heart. When the time comes to write your wedding vows, the first step is to speak from the heart. What better way to express the ultimate love for your partner than writing a beautiful vow and promise forever. Wedding vows can be traditional, religious, romantic and often very funny. Listed below are a few ideas for inspiration!

 

Traditional:

“From today forward, our lives are together bound - there is no more I, but only we, and just as two flames are not diminished by joining one another, so should the flames of our spirits burn the brighter for our union.”

 

“This ring I pledge to you in its unbroken wholeness is a symbol of the infinite nature of my love. May the eternal shine of this ring be a symbol of the enduring trust and affection that I bring to you.”

 

“Above all, I promise never to lose those precious relatives to love, faith and hope, faith that we will always be at each other’s side, and hope for everyday to be better than the last.”

 

Romantic:

“As the spring explodes with beauty and growth, as the Summer warmth curls over us in waves, as the sweet harvest of the fall, and in the crisp cold brightness of winter, I love you every season, every year forever and ever.”

 

“My commitment to you is one if give willingly, absolutely, and without hesitation. I am yours utterly and have been since the moment we met. We were married before this day and will always be.”

 

“I've listened to my heart beat, felt it trapped in the cage of my ribs. But now I think of it like a dove - flying to you - to be joined with you, my heart soars with yours. Together our hearts take wing.”

 

Funny:

“I vow not to take any of your less pleasing habits personally, even though I really wish you would put the keys back on the key hook, and not leave your shoes in the middle of the hallway, and I love you.”

 

“I vow to be your spell checker, grammar friend, and tell you when things need hyphens. I promise to be your partner in exercise, even if I am much faster than you, and most of all, I promise to try things, even though I am sure I will not like them, just because you say, "try this!"

 

 “A pair of penguins mate for life, across hundreds of miles of tundra, the female penguin travels to bring food to the male, as he watches the egg over a month of sub-zero temperatures. As your husband, I promise never to ask you to do anything like that.”
