I’m a big sap when it comes to the wedding vows. I’ve been to a few weddings (wink, wink) and have heard some stunning vows. Some of the vows were long and poetic, some were short and to the point, and some were funny, or sweet.
Wedding vows are the words you speak to your partner on the day of your wedding. Your vows are a declaration of love, a promise to be there for each other through thick and thin, and a commitment to make your marriage work.
Your vows can be traditional or non-traditional, religious or secular, sweet, romantic, wacky, whimsical, or anything in between. Your vows can be exchanged during the ceremony and witnessed by all your family and friends. They can be read individually in private or, in a quiet secluded place with just the two of you. There are no rules.
From the moment you uttered the words, “I do,” you started a new life together. But now that you’re married, what does that mean for you?
It means that each day will be an adventure together. It means that you’ll have a partner to share everything with — good times and bad. And it means that when one of you falls down, the other will be there to help get back up again.
Your wedding day was the beginning of a journey together as husband and wife. The vows you made were just the first steps in this exciting journey.
It can be hard to find the right words, or know where to start with writing your wedding vows. Here is a post on how to write your own vows that you may find helpful.
