Whether you are celebrating a milestone such as 5, 10, or 20 years of marriage, having a recommitment ceremony is just one way to continue to move forward in your marriage and recite your vows over again. Here is a listing to some great examples of recommitment wedding vows you can incorporate into your celebration.
Groom: I praise God for you my “help meet” and as we become united in marriage I will leave my father and mother and cleave to you as we become one flesh.
Bride: I thank God for giving me you as my provider and as we become united in marriage I will trust you as the head of our home as we become one flesh.
Pastor: Please face each other
Pastor to Groom:
If so, please answer by saying “I Do.”
Groom: I do
Pastor to Bride:
If so, please answer by saying “I Do.”
Bride: I do
Pastor: Friends we are assembled here to unite
Marriage is a commitment between one man and one woman. These vows which you are about to give are serious and should be considered a lifelong promise.
Pastor to the Groom:
Groom: I will
Pastor to the Bride:
Bride: I will
Groom to Bride:
Bride to Groom: I do
Bride to Groom:
Groom to Bride: I do
Groom to Bride: Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken. As we unite as husband and wife our strength as one is blessed by God. Will you be my wife?
Bride to Groom: I will
Bride to Groom: My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away. I am my beloved’s, and my beloved is mine: he feedeth among the lilies. I am my beloved’s, and his desire is toward me. Will you be my husband?
Groom to Bride: I will
Groom to Bride: We promised to love for richer and for poorer-and it has come to pass. We’ve known plentiful times and lean times; we have loved through both.
Bride to Groom : We promised to love in sickness and in health — and it has come to pass. We’ve been strong and we’ve been weak. We’ve each had our turn to take care of the other. We have given and received comfort.
Groom to Bride: We promised to love for better and for worse and that, too, has come to pass.
Bride to Groom: Our love has made the good times better and the bad times bearable.
Groom to Bride: Fifty years ago, we promised to spend our lifetimes together. We were filled with hopes and dreams and youthful anticipation. Today I thank you for making those hopes and dreams come true.
Bride to Groom: Thank you for the years of joy for the laughter and the hugs and the unfailing, supportive love.
Groom to Bride: We promised to love, and it has come to pass.
Pastor: The Lord God has blessed you as a couple, and as a family, and has in that confirmed your desire to be married; may you continue in the name of the Lord who made heaven and earth.
Groom: x years ago I, __, took you, __, to be my lawful wife, and now I repeat those promises–never to forsake you, to love you faithfully, to support you as a faithful and godly husband is bound to do, and to live with you in holiness, keeping faith and truth to you in all things according to God’s holy Word.
Bride: x years ago I, __, took you, __, to be my lawful husband, and now I repeat those promises–to love you faithfully, to respect you, to serve and assist you, never to forsake you, to live with you in holiness, keeping faith and truth to you in all things, as a faithful and godly wife is bound to do according to God’s holy Word.
The Father of all mercies, who of His grace has called you to this holy state of marriage x years ago, bind you in true love and faithfulness, and grant you His blessing. Amen.
