Here’s the second in my series of amazing (de-identified) vows from one of my beautiful couples! Some of my couples have written such incredible words of love and promise, and I thought they’d act as great inspiration for other couples who have no idea where to start when writing their own vows. While I provide all my couples with a vow pack that contains loads of individual sentences that can be put together to create vows (and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that), the vows in this series all include the kind of personal touches that I think make wedding vows beautiful and genuine. To me, the most successful vows are personal, from the heart, and written in language the speaker would use in their everyday life.
Just one disclaimer: these vows are published to inspire you and provide you with some ideas for writing your vows; they’re not here so you can copy them word for word!
These vows were part of one of my same-sex commitment ceremonies.
Without fail or exception you make me feel like the most important person in the world, I feel so loved every single day.
You inspire me and make me believe anything is possible. Your encouragement and support with everything I do has never wavered. I love your passion and excitement in all aspects of your life. I promise to always support you and at the same time be your devil’s advocate.
I promise to always be honest with you and share everything I have. I want to spend my days making sure you have everything that is important to you and us. I promise our home will always be filled with love, laugher, family and friends, puppies, football, Fat Yak and coffee.
You have taught me to believe in the motto everything happens for a reason, thank god you happened, and I can’t wait for forever with you. You are the love of my life; you know that I will never leave your side. Love you.
For the past seven years you have shown me what it is like to feel complete. Every day I am grateful that I get to wake up to your beautiful smile, loving personality and generous soul. Today in front of our family and friends, I choose you because I cannot imagine one day of my life without you. I choose you because you make me feel like no one else has ever made me feel before. I choose you because I can see our future and it fills me with nothing but love and happiness. Today in front of everyone we love I make the following promises to you…
I promise to make you smile every day for the rest of your life. I promise to love you no matter what life throws at us. I promise to be there for you when the times are amazing and when the times get tough. And I promise to take care of you and protect you forever. I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with you, the person I see as my best friend, my true love and my twin flame.
