Are you looking for ideas for Writing Your Own Vows? Here at Bride Buddy we have put together some guidance and inspiration to help get you started.
Think about words and phrases from your favourite films, books and especially songs that touch your heart as a couple and express how you feel about each other.
How about all the special moments you have shared in your relationship, whether happy, sad or humorous, to inspire you to add personal moments in the vows you write.
When thinking about the promises, they are about your future together. Think about the things you hope to share, create and how you would like to be treated by each other. To be there for each other through laughter and sadness, good times and bad. To love and honour one another and respect your partner’s individuality and be tolerant and understanding and of course, to be each other’s best friend.
As I take you to be my wife/husband, I promise to love you, to honour and respect you. I will stand by you and be true to you always. I will care for you, laugh with you when you are happy and comfort you when you are sad. Whatever life may bring, I will always love you.
….................(Groom) do you promise to keep …..........................(bride)
in your heart? (I do)
….................(Groom) do you promise to laugh and cry together and hold ……………..(bride) until the end of time? (I do)
Examples of Ring Words:
A ring is an unbroken circle which symbolises unending and everlasting love and it is the outward sign of the lifelong promises you will make to each other.
Today I am marrying my best friend. The one I want to spend the rest of my life with. We were meant to be together, it was our destiny. You are my friend, my love, my life’s companion. Please accept this ring as a symbol of our love and friendship.
…………..., I give you this ring as a lasting reminder of the promises we have made here today. Wear it as a symbol of my love and affection, now and always. All that I have I share with you All that I am I give to you.
………………………….&……………………..see their marriage as the promise of hope between two people who love each other, who honour one another as individuals and who wish to share their future. They are now affirming their relationship in your presence as they start their new life together.
Marriage is a desire by two people not only to share themselves and their experiences but also to accept one another as individuals. Marriage calls for commitment, co-operation, honesty, patience and of course a sense of humour! A good partner will be loving and caring, but above all, a best friend.
There are of course many different ways to say ‘I love you and want to spend the rest of my life with you’ and here we have a mere drop in the ocean of ideas you can investigate for your ceremony. Check out the Bride Buddy website for more inspiration and ideas and above all make sure your ceremony is relevant and personal to you, but mostly it should be a romantic once in a lifetime public declaration of your love and commitment to each other.
