Examples of Personal Wedding Vows

Weddings are such a personal occasion that is all about the bride and groom and the vows they make to one another. Whilst there are mandatory words that need to be said to legally officiate the ceremony, I believe that the ceremony should use your own words to express how you feel about one another. Here are a few examples just to help you out.

Alexandra & Benim

In your eyes, I have found my home.
In your heart, I have found my love.
In your soul, I have found my mate.
With you, I am whole, full, alive.
You make me laugh. You let me cry.
You are my breath, my every heartbeat.
I am yours.
You are mine.
Of this we are certain.
You are lodged in my heart.
The small key is lost.
You must stay there forever.

You are my inspiration and my soul’s fire.
You are the magic of my days.
You help me laugh, you teach me love.
You provide a safe place for me, unlike I’ve ever known.
You free me to sing my own song.
You are more of an amazement to me, each day I rediscover you.
You are my greatest boon.
I am yours.
You are mine.
Of this we are certain.
You are lodged in my heart.
The small key is lost.
You must stay there forever.

Danielle & Gregory

I love you for your beauty, your intelligence, your kindness…and for the way you always know how to make me feel so special. So on top of all the other vows that I will make to you on our wedding day, I also vow to always appreciate how lucky I am to have someone who makes me feel the way you do and to continue to try as hard as I can to make you feel as special as you make me feel, forever and ever.

You have been my best friend, mentor, playmate, confidant, and my greatest challenge. But most importantly, you are the love of my life and you make me happier than I could ever imagine and more loved than I ever thought possible…. You have made me a better person as our love for one another is reflected in the way I live my life. So I am truly blessed to be a part of your life, which as of today becomes our life together.

I Promise
By Dorothy Colgan

I promise to give you the best of myself and to ask of you no more than you can give.
I promise to respect you as your own person and to realize that your interests,
desires and needs are no less important than my own.
I promise to share with you my time and my attention and to bring joy,
strength and imagination to our relationship.
I promise to keep myself open to you, to let you see through the window of my world into my innermost fears and feelings,
secrets and dreams.
I promise to grow along with you,
to be willing to face changes in order to keep our relationship alive and exciting.
I promise to love you in good times and in bad,
with all I have to give and all I feel inside in the only way I know how.
Completely and forever.

When I was told I had to think up some vows I had no idea what I was going to say. Then I got to
thinking about all the things I love about you; like all the crazy things that come out of your mouth
without thinking (like thinking a cherry picker was someone who picks cherries), the way you bust
out into song for no apparent reason and your idea of 50/50 sharing (that is 50% you, 30% me and
20% the cat).
From the time we have spent together, I have fallen madly in-love with you and all of your
wonderful quirks. You fill every day with adventure and wonder and I know that as long as I’m with
you, my life will never be boring.
You have done so much for me over the years, like cooking me delicious meals, organizing
amazing holidays and putting up with all may bad habits like leaving my stubby tops on the bench.
For all of this, and so much more that you have done for me, I promise to love, cherish and adore
you; to laugh with you and not at you, to give you lots of back massages, to not drag you past
every shoe shop you pass and I promise to let you, let me go out riding whenever you want me to
so you can watch your TV shows. But most of all, I promise to be there for you every day for the
rest of my life; because without you I would not be the man I am today.
I am so happy I will have you by my side as my loving wife and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my
life with you.
