Exchanging wedding vows is one of the most important moments of the ceremony. Creatively finding a way to poetically communicate them or rhyming wedding vows can make a bigger memorable impact. Here are a few examples of popular rhyming wedding vows to inspire you.
I (name), take you (name), to be my lawfully wedded wife.
To be together in happiness and strife,
To have and to hold,
Even if your cooking grows mold.
I love you in richness and in debt,
And cherish all moments since we have met.
I promise to love you until the end of my days,
As long as you stay out of my baseball plays.
I pledge to be faithful
Even when we’re old and dull.
I, (name), choose you, (name), to be my wife. Before our friends and family gathered here I promise to love and cherish you throughout the good times and bad times. I promise to try to remember to put down the toilet seat, and to replace the toilet roll when it finishes. I promise to remember this day with love and roses. I will love you always.
We are here to witness a miracle in the making
Taking two and making one.
This is no small undertaking.
To give up your life for someone else.
To put each other in front of self
To be other more and self less.
Lets self check ourselves less we think this is a small task
What God has done today could not be grasped with human hands.
These two where planned before he scooped the sand and molded the first man.
And this woman lives as a protective rib to guard his most vital parts.
This bride has fought against societal flaws where lies have taught
That her role was trite.
Her scars concealed under concealer
Masked under mascara
Her power has been powdered
Her lips have been sealed and glossed over.
She’s lost hold of herself
Her soul has been sold for high heals and a pole.
A wink and a drink
In hopes that if only her thighs would convince him to look at her mind
To stare in her eyes and nothing below.
To peel off her layers not only her clothes
To reach deep inside and touch her soul
And he was raised in a world that trained him to show no emotion
Shape up, stay focused.
Make up for the mistakes your folks did.
Only say what you think.
What you feel, just cope with it.
Just notice it’s hopeless to be open.
Stay closed, let no one in
No tears no fears.
Just get it and get over it.
Get a job.
Your dreams are over with.
Make money, take money
Your pay stub means more
Or should I say your means means more to me
As well as your ends.
Anything in between you can keep to yourself… honey.
And all he’s wanted was someone to love him
To add something to him
not just take something from him.
That day has arrived.
Do you take this woman today
and intake her into yourself like air
to where no one else can take her and make her theirs.
remake her make up.
take up her burdens and with a big burst of energy breathe out her cares.
Will you reach in her heart where no one would dare and expose her beauty
what’s truly in there? and never desert.
for better or for worse,
even if she lets worse get the better of her
Will you give her your love
Whether or not it’s deserved
Even if your urges subside
Never let your eyes divert
Your attention is hers
I urge you to fight
Love beyond your feelings with all of your might
Will you commit first to Christ?
And then to her
Only when you enter him
Can you enter her
Present to her a man of God
With a plan and a vision
That stands for the risen man
That isn’t slanderous or a cancer to him.
That answers to him first
And then defers to her for answers.
And then actually listen.
Do you vow to stay with her, until the end?
Flaws and all.
Remain best of friends.
If you agree say I do…..
And do you take this man
Just as he is
To auction your heart for the purchase of his.
No matter how worthless it is in the eyes of men.
God made him a diamond before he gave you a ring.
Do you promise to love him through thick and through thin?
In sick and in health
Even if his sickness is due to his thickness
He will always fit in your heart even if he doesn’t fit in his belt.
Him and no else.
Even if he doesn’t prevail in his vision or mission
The minute he fails or he misses the mark
Or he stumbles or trips you’ll be there.
To humbly serve.
To increase his worth with your words.
To ease his despair.
To love him for who he is
To cut through his shell
To stay by his side
in debt or in wealth
If you agree say I do….
How could this be possible without him?
The one who gave his life for us
The perfect one
The undeserved one
Took on the punishment reserved for us
We don’t deserve his love
He purchased us
Though we weren’t even worth his blood
The nerve of us that skirt his love
What more could we want
He gave us purpose plus he works for what works for us.
Marriage is an image of his perfect love
Without him it isn’t worth the fuss.
Your love for him is our love for him
Your love for her is his love for us.
So represent him right
for the rest of your life.
