Looking for examples of wedding vows?
Below are some traditional and non traditional vows to help you express your love and what your marriage means to you.
Your vows are usually the most personal and emotional part of the ceremony.
For some couples, the traditional vows may be as sincere as any words that they feel they can write.
However, other couples may feel that their love is such a special bond that they need to personalize their promises to really express their true feelings for each other.
If you are such a couple, then by writing your own vows you will be able to create a ceremony that is more meaningful and personal for you both.
Your personalized promises may be taken from religious text, copied from poems, or written completely by you and your fiance.
You can even use some of the words used in traditional vows.
Your vows can follow the traditional format or you can write them in your own style.
The words used in your personal vows should be a lifelong promise to honor and cherish and include the commitment to love and support each other.
They may be read by the officiant and the bride and groom can respond. Or the couple may write and read all of the vows themselves.
Make sure you have discussed any personalization of the vows with your officiant before the day of the wedding, so there are no misunderstandings.
Try to keep your promises under three minutes. Use short, simple sentences and be natural.
Some couples want a mixture of the traditional mixed with the contemporary.
To do this they will often choose to recite special wordings, sentiments, or poems before or after they exchange their vows.
In general, you can personalize your vows as much or as little as you want. It is your choice.
Below are some examples to help you write your own vows.
