The following thoughts and guidelines will help you be a strong foundation for your relationship.

6 Ideas and Examples for Creating Your Wedding Vows by Karine Hart

Comments Off on 6 Ideas and Examples for Creating Your Wedding Vows by Karine Hart

One of the things you’ll need to consider when planning your wedding is the wedding vows you want to exchange. Usually Civil Marriage Celebrants will allow you to write your own if you don’t want to go with traditional words. Of course, you need to consider this ahead of time so everyone knows what is going on when the big day arrives. Maybe you are not sure how to write your own or what you should even write. Asking your marriage celebrant for ideas is a great place to start. Also, to help you out, here are a few ideas and examples that you may want to use yourself or you can adapt them to fit your own needs at your wedding.

Idea #1

Today before these witnesses, I (name) do take you (name) to be my lawfully wedding (wife/husband), to have and hold from this day on, for better, for worse, in sickness, in health, for richer, or for poorer, to love and cherish, until death do part us.

Idea #2

(Name) with every part of my heart and soul I give you everything I am and everything I will be. With this ring I promise to love you and be faithful to you for as long as my life shall be.

Idea #3

I love you (name). Today I pledge to be your husband and you will be my wife, as long as the two of us live. No matter what life brings our way, I will take care of you and love you with all my heart and soul.

Idea #4

(Name) I want to walk through life with you forever. We are two flames, and today we become a single light. With this ring, a sign of our unending love, I offer you myself to be your (husband/wife). May we always journey together towards the light.

Idea #5

I am here today before these witnesses to join my life together to yours, (Name). In the presence of all here I pledge that I will love you, respect you, grow with you, and always be true to only you. Whether we see trials, smiles, rain, sunshine, or tears, you will always have my love. Your heart will be my home from this day on.

Idea #6

In front of all these witnesses, I (Name) take you (Name) to be my (husband/wife). I will trust in you, love you, always be honest, supportive, and encouraging as we go through life. Above everything else I will take care of you and respect you as a person, in good times, in bad times, no matter what life brings, as we journey together through life.

These are just a few great ideas you can use for your wedding vows. Just be sure to let your Melbourne Celebrant know you plan to use your own vows before the wedding day.
