Are you getting married soon and need to write your wedding vows? Can’t think of the right words to say or use? Do you need some sample wedding vows to jump start your thinking? Hey, we know what you’re going through, so relax a little bit and check out these sample vows you can use for your wedding.
Now, keep in mind that there are differing vows for each religion. Also, these are not set in stone and can be changed around to your liking or combined with other vows. The choice is yours; remember to check with your officiant before totally committing to whatever vow you choose. (Especially if you are getting married in a church or synagogue – they probably have set standards on what is acceptable.)

I, (Bride or Groom), take thee, (Bride or Groom) to be my lawfully wedded (wife or husband), to have and to hold from this day on, for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness or health, to love and to cherish, ’til death do us part.

Muslim Sample Wedding Vow:
I pledge, in sincerity and honesty, to be for you a faithful and obedient (bride or groom).
