Your wedding vows are those special words that will marry you to the love of life and whether you chose - traditional or non-traditional, religious or secular wedding vows is up to you.
However, if you are getting married in a religious setting, check with your officiant as there maybe some specific words that you cannot deviate from. Otherwise, here are some sample for you.
1. I, (Bride/Groom), take you (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; from this day forward until death do us part.
2. I, (name), take you, (name), to be my [opt: lawfully wedded] (husband/wife), my constant
friend, my faithful partner and my love from this day forward. In the presence of God, our
family and friends, I offer you my solemn vow to be your faithful partner in sickness and in
health, in good times and in bad, and in joy as well as in sorrow.
I promise to love you unconditionally, to support you in your goals, to honor and respect you,
to laugh with you and cry with you, and to cherish you for as long as we both shall live.
3. I (name), take you (name) to be my (husband/wife), my partner in life and my one true love.
I will cherish our union and love you more each day than I did the day before. I will trust you
and respect you, laugh with you and cry with you, loving you faithfully through good times and
bad, regardless of the obstacles we may face together. I give you my hand, my heart, and my
love, from this day forward for as long as we both shall live.
In the presence of God and these our friends I take thee to be my husband/wife, promising
with Divine assistance to be unto thee a loving and faithful husband/wife so long as we both
4. I, (name), take you, (name), to be my friend, my lover, the (mother/father) of my children and
my (husband/wife). I will be yours in times of plenty and in times of want, in times of sickness
and in times of health, in times of joy and in times of sorrow, in times of failure and in times of
triumph. I promise to cherish and respect you, to care and protect you, to comfort and
encourage you, and stay with you, for all eternity.
5. I, [name], choose you [name] to be my [husband/wife], to respect you in your successes and
in your failures, to care for you in sickness and in health, to nurture you, and to grow with you
throughout the seasons of life.
6. I, (name), take you, (name), to be my partner, loving what I know of you, and trusting what I
do not yet know. I eagerly anticipate the chance to grow together, getting to know the
(man/woman) you will become, and falling in love a little more every day. I promise to love
and cherish you through whatever life may bring us.
