Your wedding vows should be as meaningful as possible. In celebrating this formal dedication to spending the rest of your life together and beginning on this journey of married life, here is a look at some of the best humanist wedding vows to exchange.
I, [name], promise to you, [name]
to love and care for you,
to support your dreams,
to continue the fun that has brought us together,
and to be your friend;
with these vows I promise to be the best husband I can be.
I [name], promise, to you [name],
to be your best friend,
to love, cherish and care for you,
to respect you and and your dreams,
and to never be boring!
Will you love with all your heart? From now until death do you part?
Yes, we will love with all our heart
From now until death do us part,
And we will love if we are rich,
And if we’re broke and in a ditch,
And when we’re fit, and when we’re sick,
(Oh, CAN’T we get this finished quick?)
And we will love through good and bad,
And we will love when glad or sad.
From this day forward.
May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home
And may the hand of a friend always be near.
May green be the grass you walk on,
May blue be the skies above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you,
May true be the hearts that love you.
With this ring, I thee wed;
I promise to love and respect you for all of our days;
I promise to listen to you and try always to understand you;
I promise not to lose sight of the love that brought us together and the future we have together;
I promise to encourage you to do what is right for you and to always allow you to be who you are and who you wish to be;
Today is a wonderful day and I look forward to leaving here as man and wife and building this marriage during each coming wonderful day.
[name], will you receive [name] as your lawfully wedded wife/husband? Will you share your life with her/him, hold your love firm, and dutifully care for her/him in all the varying circumstances of your life?
[name], will you have [name] as your wife/husband, to live together in marriage? Will you love her/him, comfort her/him, and honor her/him, in sickness and in health, in sorrow and in joy, as long as you both shall live?
I, [name], choose you, [name], to be my wife/husband. I will respect you, care for you, and grow with you, through good times and hard times, as your friend, companion, and partner, giving the best that I can, to fulfill our lives together.
[name], I love you. You are my best friend. Today I, [name], commit myself to you. I promise to encourage and inspire you, to laugh with you and comfort you. I promise to be true to you in good times and in bad, when life seems easy and when it seems hard. When our love is simple, and when it is an effort. I promise to cherish you, and to always hold you in highest regard. These things I give to you now and forever.
