For Her: example wedding vows

Example wedding vows for Her, to help your heart find the right words for your big day…

i.
Today, we get to say our promises out loud, in front of our friends and family, and maybe a few curious strangers. But before we ever made it here, we knew we were in this for the long haul. We created a home together, and chose each other to embark on the journey of marriage, and all our future adventures.

I choose you because:
Your creativity and talent inspire me. I’ve never met another person who can write an off-the-cuff song about paying the electric bill, or spend 45 minutes on a tall tale about pasta and pesto.
You make me gourmet meals on a regular basis, and expect nothing but a hand washing the dishes in return.
You have a kind soul.
You spin the tallest tales, but, in real life, you’re always honest with me.
You encourage my talents, remind me of my worth,and never let me think poorly of my self.
You give me the freedom to be silly, and you never judge me for random songs or sporadic dance moves. I love that I can pepper my speech with near nonsense words, and you still know exactly what I mean every time.
You offer me a kindness and security I didn’t know was possible and never thought I needed. With you at my side, I know we can accomplish anything.
As a foundation for our future together:

I promise to love you, unconditionally, without hesitation, on your best day. And I promise to love you even more on your worst day.
I promise to laugh and dance with you in times of joy and comfort you in times of sorrow.
I promise to treat you as an equal partner. I will share in your dreams and challenge you to reach your greatest potential.
I promise to love, respect, and trust you, and give you the best of myself.
I will fight for our relationship when I need to, and I will never try to hurt your just because I’m angry or tired. I will always work to be worth of your love, and accept that neither of us is perfect.
I promise wherever you go, we will go together, where we will build a life far greater than we could ever imagine on our own.
I will trust you, even when we veer from gps directions, schedules, itineraries, and to-do lists.
I promise you will always be my family, and we will always be a team.
I will stand by you for better and worse, in sickness and health, in sunny days and hurricanes.

You are my best friend, my shelter from the storm, my partner in mischief, and, from this day forward, my husband. I will love and respect you always. With these words, I marry you, and bind my life to yours.

 

ii.
Throughout history there have been many great men with accomplishments both good and far-reaching. Though I have long envied and admired them, I have come to realize that I would count myself as their equal, or even their better, if my only achievement in this life was to make you happy.

I promise to be your faithful and loving wife,
to cherish your intellect and uniqueness,
to delight in your happiness and comfort you in sorrow,
to communicate openly and honestly and to listen carefully,
to support and encourage you,
and to be your eager partner in exploring the things we have yet to learn and places we have yet to go.
My love is yours now, and for all the days before us.

 

iii.
You are my best friend, my family and my partner in adventure. Because I love you, I promise to treat you the way you want to be treated and with the respect you deserve. I promise to build trust with my words and actions. I will deeply appreciate all of your positive qualities and not let the passage of time dull that appreciation. When life challenges us, I promise to focus on the resiliency of our love. And if I stumble and fail to live up to my promises, I will look you in the eyes, hold your hands, and apologize with sincerity. Today, I promise you that, though the world may change and we may change with it, I will always love you, always treasure you and always share my life and all that I am with you. I will be my best for you. Today and every day, I will be proud to be your wife.

 

iv.
Here in the presence of our family and friends, I take you for my husband. I promise to be a loving partner through all that is to come. I promise to be faithful to you and honest with you. I promise to share my thoughts with you, to care for and console you, to always be your advocate. I promise to protect and preserve your dreams, as I know you will my own. I will love and honor you all the days of my life.

Today I join my life with yours, not merely as your wife, but as your friend, your lover and
your confidant. In upholding this marriage I promise to bring respect and honesty, loyalty and trust, love and
laughter. Let me be the shoulder you lean on, the rock you rest on, and the companion with whom you sail through life, today and all our days to come.

 

v.
I, (name), take you (name), as my husband, partner and lifelong companion.
I promise to love, honour and respect you,
and to see your wants and needs as equal to my own.
I promise to be strong for you, to hold you up in times of trial and challenge,
and to support you and our marriage with all I am and all I can give.
I promise to be patient, understanding, and forgiving with you, as I know you will be with me.
I promise to nurture and encourage your creativity and passions,
and to honor the unique person you are. I love you, and I will never try to change you.
I promise to take your family as my own, to love and care for them as long as I am able.
I promise to seek adventure, joy and fun with you, and to enrich our lives through culture, art and nature.
I promise to honor these words all my life, and to look back on them often for guidance and purpose as we build our lives together.
I promise never to forget the commitment I make to you today..
