I, (name), take you (name), 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.
We have all listened to these words once or twice; some of us even have these words memorized in anticipation of our own wedding day. For today’s bride and groom vows have become less cookie cutter. Brides and grooms are selecting their own verses. Each couple has the opportunity to craft the vows uttered on their wedding day and create them as unique as they are. Vows are a very personal part of your nuptials, they convey the love and affection that you have for each other, and they enable you to give a small gift in words, and help to make the promises that will be kept in your marriage. You can take inspiration from anywhere. Design a checklist of what is important to you and your prince charming, and then you can proceed in the right direction. Whether you’re a traditional bride, a modern bride or a romantic bride, the vows you articulate on your wedding day will live on in silent reverence within your marriage.
When my husband and I got married we sat down together and made our own vows. We took hours to decide on our ending result. Taking what we liked form here and there. We liked a line form this poem and a paragraph form that set vows. Eventually we had a well fashioned ceremony. When reading the words to one another they drew a tear. Each of us knew those words came from the heart, and they were a promise of our life together.
