Taking all your thoughts and feelings towards your favourite person in the world and putting them to paper is no easy feat. We’re here to help you with some beautiful and romantic wedding vows ideas.

We’ll walk you through the structure of your wedding vows, along with some sweet bits to copy and paste if you like.

Why

Start your wedding vows by saying what marriage means to you and why.

“(Name), my partner in crime, my best friend and my biggest supporter. Today, I choose you as my (husband/wife), loving everything I already know about you, and looking forward to discovering new things about each other as we embark on this journey of a lifetime together.”

Look back

Take a look back on your relationship and share fond memories you have. Here are some questions you can ask to help craft this portion of your wedding vows:

  • How did you feel when you first met?

  • How did you know it was forever?

  • What do you love about your partner?

Qualities

Talk about the qualities that drew you to your partner. These are the endearing qualities you love about your Other Half that made you choose a lifetime with them.

“You know me better than anyone else in the world and somehow you still manage to love me. You are my best friend and my one true love. There is still a part of me today that cannot believe that I’m the one who gets to marry you!”

Why again

At this point, include a sentence about why you’re choosing to marry your partner.

“You are the best parts of me, my darling. I give you everything I have and everything I am.”

Promise

Use this portion to make your wedding vows, your promises, your pledges to your spouse.

Here are some ideas, so feel free to steal them:

“I promise to always strive to meet your needs, not out of obligation, but because it delights me to see you happy!”

“I pledge to you, (Name), that my love and my loyalty will weather the storms of life. I will always seek counsel when I make decisions and will respect your needs and concerns. No matter what course we set, we will do it together.”

“(Name)”, I promise to love you, to be your best friend, to respect and support you, to be patient with you, to work together with you to achieve our goals, to accept you unconditionally, and to share life with you throughout the years.”

“I promise to show you, every day, that I know exactly how lucky I am to have you in my life.”

“I give you my hand, my heart, and my word that I will be a loving and devoted wife/husband.”

“Today, surrounded by people who love us, I choose you, bride/groom, to be my partner. I am proud to be your wife/husband/partner and to join my life with yours. I vow to support you, push you, inspire you, and above all, love you, for better or worse, in sickness and health, for richer or poorer, as long as we both shall live.”
