The process of writing your wedding vows is deeply personal. Your vows present an opportunity to express to your partner all the ways you feel about them. Whether you want to write a tear-jerking monologue or you decide you want to take a more comical approach, enclosing your deepest feelings in just a few short sentences is not an easy task. Read on if you want to gather some inspiration before writing your own, and remember, if it comes from the heart, it is more than enough.
Simple yet impactful vows.
“I promise to love you for the person that you are, not for the person I want you to be. I promise to always respect you and have your best interests in mind, always cheering you on and taking care of you.”
“You are the person I choose to be with every single day. It’s a conscious decision I make every day, every time we fight or make love, every time we sit on the bed for a whole weekend or when I haven’t seen you in days. You are the best choice I ever made and I promise to choose you every day for the rest of my days.”
Romantic, Whole-heartedly vows.
“From the moment I laid eyes on you, I knew you would change my life. To me, you embody love, beauty, and everything right in this world. You make my bad days okay, and from this day on I will protect you, love you and take care of you anyway I can.”
“Today I lay in your hands not just my heart but my soul too. I am yours, heart, body, and soul from the first time you kissed me and today is a promise that I will be yours in any way you want me to for the rest of my life. I will love and cherish you, respect and be truthful to you. I will be your rock, your safe harbour, your number one fan. Always and forever.”
“My love, today I make this promise to you in front of our family and friends. I promise to love you with every beat of my heart. I promise to make you happy even when times are tough. To pick you up when you fall and to always tell you the truth.”
“I never seemed to fully understand the concept of love. I thought of love as something detrimental, a teenager’s wishful thinking. But you taught me the real meaning of love. Caring for someone other than yourself, relinquishing your ego for the other person’s happiness. You taught me to look for love in everyday stuff and since then my life has been so full of it. So today I am making sure you know you will never be without it. And I without you.”
Witty, funny vows.
“I promise to always do the dishes if you promise to leave the last pizza slice for me.”
“I vow never to steal your covers unless you’re hogging them.”
“I vow to laugh to your every stupid pun. And if that’s not love, I don’t know what is.”
“I promise to take you with me when we inevitably move to Mars.”
