Best decision ever wedding vows

awesome wedding vows
This entry is part 46 of 53 in the series Awesome Wedding Vows

Here’s the next set of awesome wedding vows 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 questions to get you started and 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.

Also remember: the word vow means promise. While we all love hearing all the reasons you love your partner, your vows are your chance to tell your partner all the things you are promising them for your lives together into the future. Don’t forget the promises!

A reminder: 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!

Also remember these don’t include the legally required vows – those words generally go at the start of these ones.

Party 1

When I first saw you I was struck by your colour, as if you had decided to brighten the world one fashionable outfit at a time. As we worked together I was struck by your warmth, your humour and your sense of adventure.

Whether it was a joke, a delicious meal or one of our chats on the breadth of human experience, such as philosophy, science or politics, the time we spent together at the office made memories I will treasure always.

Now, years later we have shared many experiences, both beautiful and adventurous, and sad and difficult. Our adventures include trips to America, Cambodia and Vietnam (not to mention our mini getaways). We have also shared the not-so-good. We’ve supported each other through hardships, the loss of loved ones and family, and my, you have been there to help me with my own issues.

I can say that my first image of you was correct, you bring colour to my world.

I vow to be your adventure partner, your listening post, your carrier of fancy shoes, your brunch date and, most importantly today; your husband.

Party 2

Since you made yourself tear up when you casually busted out your vows on a picnic rug at the park, there is no way I am going to win this battle of words, but I will give it my best shot!

Your quiet steadiness, supportiveness and thoughtfulness do not go unnoticed. You are talented, insightful and the sweetest person that I know.

You looked after Scrappy Brown when I went away for the weekend and sent me photos of the two of you dressed for a resort vacation.

You spent hours creating trivia nights because I was missing my friends and social life in 2020. You wrote messages (with accompanying cartoons of course) and put them in envelopes for me to open throughout my Europe trip because you knew I was nervous about flying and that I would miss you.

You see everything that I am and have never asked me to be any less.

You make me laugh, you dance with me and you challenge me to be the best version of myself and I know this will never change.

My heart is so full I could just burst or least squeal in excitement. I know with complete clarity that marrying you is the best decision I have ever made and an experience I would never want to be without.

Today I want to make some promises to you, as your wife.

I promise to give you reflection time when you need it.

I promise to give you hugs when you are upset or overwhelmed.

I promise to make all our experiences together ones worth having.

I promise to never take you for granted.

I promise to always let you have the last ebi mayo prawn, just like you let me have the last piece of chili caramel pork that day at Red Spice Road when I first told you I loved you. It wasn’t the pork, but as you know, it sure as hell didn’t hurt!

The fact that neither of us wanted to wait another year to actually be married says a lot. I love you and I am super excited to spend the rest of our lives together.
