One of the most romantic and emotional moments for couples during a wedding ceremony is the one when they have to take the wedding vows. There is a lot of value attached to wedding vows as they impart meaning and let the partners express their deepest love for one another. As a dedicated partner, you must be craving to write your own wedding vows however, not everyone is indeed able to write some really good verses. But the matter of fact is that wedding vows are not meant to show literary skills. Rather, they must come right from the bottom of your heart. Your feelings matter whether they are just a few lines or a page length.

Officiant Reading Example

We are gathered here today in the presence of family and friends to share with Bride and Groom the most important moment in their lives.

We gather to celebrate the love of two cute couples without whose love and commitment we would not be here today. One of the popular sayings about marriage is that it a sharing of life in which the independence is equal, the dependence mutual and the obligation reciprocal.

Bride and Groom, you are now expected to bring the best individual within you, with a unification of yourself, to create a life together, to share all burden together, with smiles and love. You must, and I’m sure you will work hard to be the best person to one another.

By this ceremony, you will become legally wedded husband and wife. However, marriage is an integration of two souls and hence you both have to ensure that the coming compromises and choices of life, are made out of promises for love, care and concern for one another.

Life, at sometimes, will be full of obstacles and difficulties. And some times, it may appear to be a roller coaster ride. In either of the cases, in all successes and failures, you both have to remain united, stand for each other.

Remember, a life with love will have some thorns, but a life without love will have no roses. Here, you promise to cross the boundaries of initial love and excitement. To listen, understand and grow with each other.

Love is meant to intensify your joy and being together you have to ensure that you equally divide all the burdens. If you have truly loved each other, you must promise here and now, to believe in each other. Remain friends with each other and make a life that makes you feel happy.

Will you Groom have this woman to be your wedded wife, to love her, comfort her, honor and keep her, and forsaking all others, for so long as you both shall live? (I Will)

Will you, Bride take Groom to be your wedded husband, to love him, comfort him, honor and keep him, and forsaking all others, so long as you both shall live? (I Will)

Take hands and repeat after me: I, Groom , take you, Bride , to be my wedded wife, to have and to hold, for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, to love and to cherish, from this day forward.

I, Bride , take you, Groom to be my wedded husband, to have and to hold, for better or for worse, for richer of for poorer, to love and to cherish, from this day forward.

Rings please… Place the ring on the bride’s finger and say: With this ring, I thee wed. Place the ring on the groom’s finger and say: With this ring, I thee wed.

In as much as Bride and Groom have consented together in wedlock and have witnessed the same before this company, and pledged their vows to each other, by the authority vested in me by the State of (Your State Name), I now pronounce you husband and wife.
