Your Wedding Vows

Posted on January 31, 2015 at 1:05 AM

There are the traditional vows and modern vows, all variations on the theme of promising and pledging your love to each other.

The traditional:

 I _____, take you ______, to be my wedded wife/husband. To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness or in health, to love and to cherish 'till death do us part. And hereto I pledge you my faithfulness.

or contemporary:

You are my best friend. I love you with all my heart and stand here before all of our friends and family, sharing the happiest day of my life. I want nothing more than to share my future with you – my triumphs and my challenges, my joys and my sorrows. Together, I know we can accomplish the life we both dream of living.

And there are many different ways of how you can express your vows and personalise your wedding ceremony. As long as they are from your heart and true to what you feel and believe.

Usually the couple say the same vows to each other that they have worked out together. 

You have to say your full names which is a legal requirement. After the " I _ take you ___" , you can use your nicknames or informal names.

Your wedding vows are the most intimate, important and sacred part of the wedding ceremony.
