Your wedding vows
Wedding vows are extremely personal. They're the special words that will unite you and they represent your commitment to one another, so take your time finding the perfect wording for your ceremony -- or even write your own.
This assortment of vows will help you get started on finding the perfect vows for you, whether your ceremony is traditional, contemporary or religious.
Take these vows as a source of inspiration, but feel free to have fun with them to make them your own! Incorporate a personal flavour, humour or romance - they are yours and yours alone!

Everything that I have, I share with you,
Everything that is mine, is yours to share.
As long as I am yours, and you are mine,
I promise to stand forever by your side,
As your best friend and your husband.
(I love you)
I, ALEX, CHOOSE YOU, SAM to be no other than yourself. Loving what I know of you, trusting what things I will discover. I will respect you as a person, a partner, and an equal. There is little to say that you haven’t already heard, and little to give that is not already freely given. Before you asked me, I was yours and I am devoted to you in every way. I marry you with no hesitation or doubt, and my commitment to you is absolute. Do you take me to be your lawfully wedded husband/wife?
I CHOOSE YOU! To stand by your side and sleep in your arms. To be joy to your heart and food for your soul. To learn with you and grow with you, even as time and life change us both. I promise to laugh with you in good times and struggle alongside you in bad times. I promise to respect you and cherish you as an individual, a partner, and an equal, knowing that we do not complete, but complement each other. May we have many adventures and grow old together.
I, ALEX, DO PLEDGE YOU, SAM TO BE my love, for as long as I live. What I possess in this world, I give to you. I will keep you and hold you, comfort and tend you, protect you and shelter you, for all the days of my life.
