Nervous about saying your vows in front of your guests and having all eyes on you?
Marriage is a time for love, laughter, and happiness. However, for many couples, the ceremony can be particularly nerve-wracking. One way to calm the nerves is to remember that you are marrying your best friend and partner for life.
Another way is to add a little humour to the mix. Here are a few of my favourite one liners… I have lots of vow examples on many different topics and I’m always happy to work with you to find the perfect fit.
“I promise to unclog the shower, even though only one of us has long hair.”
“I vow never to steal your covers, unless you are hogging them.”
“I promise to pay all my debts to you—a Lannister always does.”
“I vow to protect you from spiders as long as we both shall live.”
“I promise to get up and get the remote from across the room, even if it was not I who placed the remote so very far away.”
“I promise not to drink your drinks, even though I am thirsty and your drink is literally right there.”
“I vow to always let you have the last slice of pizza.”
“I vow to be there when you start Netflix marathons and finish actual marathons.”
“Now that we’ve gotten skinny for this wedding, let’s get real fat together.”
“Let’s forget when to shut up, forget being polite, let’s be that couple, those people, and have the time of our lives until we drop dead.”
“Let’s grow old disgracefully together.”
“I vow to open jars for you and pretend that you loosened it, even though we both know it was my manly strength that did all the hard work.”
Gone are the days of: “I take thee to be my wedded wife/husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death do us part.
In addition to the vows you write or choose, there are the LEGAL VOWS which must be said by each person. The Marriage Act 1961 keeps it very short and very simple. “I call upon the people here present to witness that I, AB, take you, CD, to be my lawful wedded wife/husband/Partner.”
Send me a message and we can collaborate together to create the perfect custom vows for you and your special day.
