Personalized Wedding Vows

Forever And Always

When we first met, the thought of us together was crazy and impossible. I tried to hide my feelings and did successfully yet painfully. We became closer over time and my feelings only strengthened.

Then one ordinary day turned extraordinary when you confessed you had feelings for me. I told you how I felt and then you kissed me. I knew it was wrong but it felt so… right. Like we were meant to be together. You made me feel like everything was going to be all right.

I couldn’t believe that someone as beautiful and wonderful as you would love me back. I still can’t. It’s been 20 days since that amazing day and I feel exactly the same as I did, love you just as much if not more.

Before you, my life was empty, meaningless. I thought it would be like that until the day I died. But after we got together I was happier than I have ever been, you gave my life meaning. You filled the empty spot in my heart. I can’t imagine living without you, and I won’t.

Today I am the luckiest man alive. I love you more than I can ever tell you or show you, and will love you forever and always.


For This I Am Grateful

I found you in the midst of a very rough time in my life.
You were the strength that helped me through it.
For this, I am grateful.

At times I needed a shoulder to cry on, or a kind ear to listen to my thoughts.
You lent me your shoulder, and you listened to me without passing judgment.
For this, I am grateful.

When I’m scared, you make me feel safe
When I’m elated, you share in my happiness
When I have questions, you answer them and ease my doubts.
For this, I am grateful

Whenever I’ve needed you,
Whenever I’ve needed a friend,
You’ve always been there…
To show me, unconditional love

And for that, I love you…with all of my heart, and all of my soul


For My Love

When you fall in love, it is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake, and then it subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your branches have become so far entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. For me, that would be the end of my world and inconceivable.

For almost ten years I have held the one I love, through ups and downs, laughter and tears, three children, and being deprived of you for seven months whilst at the academy while you were home with our two small children. You have stood beside me and held my hand.

Our love is so strong I believe we can do anything, so today I commit to give myself to you in marriage, from this day I am bound to you and will forsake all others. You have taught me what it is to truly love someone more than myself. I commit to you that I will give my life to you and I promise to always protect your life with mine. I will celebrate with you in times of great happiness and I will not just stand by you but carry you during times of life’s greatest sorrows.

I will cherish your health, but one day when it fades I will be with you in any sickness or weakness you face, from now until the day I die.

I waited my entire life to find you; you are the desire of my soul, not only have you given me three beautiful children that share with you the joy of my life, you are my best friend and have given me ten years of being whole. Our branches are far too entwined and I vow to you today that I will never give up on our love.

What lies behind us, and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.


For All Times

I, ________, choose you, ________, to be my husband/wife. You are my best friend, my lover, my teacher, and my pupil. Together, we will laugh, play, cry and hurt as one. May God watch over us and give us guidance as we walk hand in hand down the path of happiness and sorrow, and be the adhesive that binds our hearts as one.

________, I will love you, protect you, cherish you, and respect you. I will always be faithful and honest. Not only in this life but long after our souls have left our vacant shells and this physical world has become a distant memory.


I present this ring to you as a symbol of our union, of faith and love, patience and endurance, and forgiveness, until my last breath. If you would have me, I will be your husband/wife for all times…



It has been long in coming to this day. I chose you, ________, to be my wife years ago. For whatever reason, fate has chosen to delay this union several times. But I believe that everything does have a reason. The reason in this case is to show me just how much you truly mean to me.

My life had been incomplete when I met you. It became more so when I did and today completes that journey, making my soul whole for the first time in my life.

I promise to be the best man that I can be for you. You have brought out the very best in me and I promise you that I will not falter in my love for you or my life with you. If my daughter is the light of my life, you are the sky to which I wake every morning. You embody the bright skies and full nights of my life.

It is by this ring and this ceremony that I make you that which you should have been so long ago. I love you and never shall let you go.

And I vow that this love will be as great as the best Fairy Tale and a dream come true.

I love you ________.Forever and Always.


Eternally Grateful

My eyes have never seen this clear, my pace has never been this free, my path has never been this amazing, my heart has never been so enthralled, my tears have never been so sweet, my reality has never been more beautiful than my dreams, my ears have never heard such wondrous sounds until the day I LOVE YOU was whispered from the lips of an angel. my soul has found its other half & I am eternally grateful that it is you.

Complete Balance

________, You are so many things to me, and I am sure you will be many more in our life together. No one is perfect, but with all of your strengths and weaknesses, and with all of mine, together we ARE perfect. You complete me in more ways than I could have thought possible. I knew before my heart did that we were made for each other. Now my heart has caught up, and the joy that I feel from the love that I have for you is incomparable, and I know that you feel the same because your love radiates from you and surrounds me in warmth.

Because of all of these things, I want with all my heart, to be the best person I can be for you. I will love you forever. I will laugh with you when times are good, and I will lift you up when times are hard. I will be the joy of your heart, and I will be the food of your soul.

I purpose to love you with His love, to provide for your needs through His enablement, and to lead you as He leads me, as long as He gives me life, regardless of circumstances.

I thank Him for your love and friendship.

I ________, take you, ________, to be my husband. With the greatest joy, I come into my new life with you. Today I am reminded of James l:17 which says, “Every good thing bestowed and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.” Besides the gift of salvation, you are the most precious gift God has given me.

I know that along with the new joys God has given me, I face new responsibilities that I cannot fulfill in my own strength. But by God’s grace and power working within me, I desire to be trustworthy as your wife, to serve and love you in all circumstances, to obey you, to allow God to use you to build His qualities in me, as long as God gives us life on this earth. I praise God continually for you, (Name), and for your love and friendship.


Best Part of My Day

________, 2 years ago you captured my heart by being exactly who you are. The sweetest, most loving, compassionate, and sensitive person I have ever known.

You have been my very best friend through the good and the bad. You have been the reason that I smile and you have given comfort beyond measure when I have cried.

You have believed in me when no one else would, and you have shown me how to love with passion, purity, and unconditional acceptance. I’m not sure a lifetime is long enough to return all you have given to me, but I promise the rest of my days I’ll spend by your side.

To laugh with you and cry with you, to believe in you and support you. In poverty, I promise to do everything to make our love rich, and in wealth to never let our love grow poor.

As I Stand Before You

________, As I stand here before you, my eyes looking so deeply into yours, I see all of the things I fell in love with.

As I stand here before you, my heart beating so loudly in my ears, I find myself so lost for the right words to say.

As I stand here before you, this ring in my hand, it makes me remember how complete you make my life.

With every smile, every embrace, every tear you’ve ever wiped from my face. It makes me remember how blessed I really am, how I can’t ever thank the Lord above enough, for allowing you into my life. It makes me remember every laugh we’ve ever shared, every hard time we made it through together, and every beautiful moment there is to come.

________, I give you this ring, my heart, my soul. I give you everything I am today as I stand before you. I promise to love you, protect you, be with you forever, and cherish every moment as if it were the last moment on earth.

I will cherish your health, but one day when it fades I will be with you in any sickness or weakness you face, from now until the day that I die.

One day we will celebrate great riches, but even if those perish and we are left with nothing, I will always stand by you, and you will always be taken care of.

I will never give up on our love. I prayed for you before I ever met you. You’re the answer to every prayer I have ever prayed.

You are the only one for me, and from this day forth I will forsake all others and be bound only to you.

I love you, and now I get to spend the rest of my life proving it to you.


All I Want and Have to Say

Low and behold, the day of our union has arrived.
It is one thing to talk about and one thing to promise.
It is one thing to imagine, and one thing to feel.
It is one thing to experience, and one thing to savor.
This day is one thing, the rest of our lives is another.

Words can be beautiful, but it is actions that are meaningful.
Memories can be relished, but new ones have to be made.
The past is important, but it is to the future our lives lay.
We speak volumes on all days but this beloved wedding day.

Before us, are those who know us well beyond our name.
So it is with all meaning and sincerity;
Before them, all I want and have to say is I will love you.


2 Lives 1 Forever

You make me laugh
You make me happy
You make me feel alive
I give you my heart
I give you my soul
I give you our life together
You give me your heart
You give me your soul
You give me our life together
I promise always to love you
I promise always to cherish you
I promise always to be by your side
Our 2 lives will move through life together
Our 2 lives will be better together
Our 2 lives will be one forever
