It was always you wedding vows

awesome wedding vows
This entry is part 50 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

The first time I saw you was in year 8 gym class. You were being silly and making everyone laugh and I remember thinking, dang that girl is pretty funny. That was 16 years ago and not a day goes by that you don’t make me smile. Getting to know you is the most fun I have ever had and here are the reasons that I love you:

  • You have the biggest heart and try to help anyone and everyone around you.
  • When you get angry it’s because there has been some sort of injustice upon others.
  • When you cry, it’s because you are compassionate and caring.
  • You’re brave and never run from a fight even if it is an uphill battle.
  • When you get frustrated it’s because someone has done something wrong or unfair.
  • You’re loyal and will do anything for your friends and family.

I am lucky that we got to grow up together because you help me be the best version of myself. You have always stood by me and supported me through the fires, both metaphorically and literally. You’ve brought me outside of my comfort zone and helped me find my confidence. You have always encouraged me to pursue my passions and achieve my goals and you help me make the right decisions and not the easy ones. You have changed my life and I am so grateful to you

I don’t know what I did to deserve you but:

  • I promise to support you, fight for you, and make sure that you feel safe.
  • I promise to listen to what you have to say, especially when we don’t agree, and to say that I feel differently instead of making you feel like you’re wrong.
  • I promise to celebrate every occasion no matter how small, because every moment is worth celebrating if it’s with you.
  • I promise to be honest and open with you, so you never have to guess what I am thinking about.
  • And I promise to try and remember to chew with my mouth closed.

I am so fortunate that we found each other so early so that we have more time to laugh and grow old together. The best part is that I got to see you grow from that silly girl into the most giving, selfless, loyal, and beautiful woman I see before me today.

I love you, forever and always.

Party 2

It’s hard to find words to describe how it feels to be loved by you. Before I met you, I had no idea that a person could feel like home.

From the very beginning, you spoke like we were for always, you were so sure. You called me your soul mate. That’s how you have loved me, completely, fearlessly, and unconditionally. I have never known a person to be as steadfast as you. You have stood alongside me, through everything. You have never wavered. Even when it’s been difficult, you have always been right here.

Whenever we have had a decision to make, and I have asked you what you want, your answer is always the same, whatever will make me happy. You always strive make me feel safe, and put a smile on my face.

I am far from perfect, but you make me feel that for you I am. You make me feel seen and understood and accepted. I can be my truest self with you. You are my best friend, my other half, my everything. I don’t know what I did to deserve you, but I will work to be the same for you forever.

I met you half our lives ago, and in that moment, I knew I was in trouble. I have loved you every second since the first one, more and more every day, if that’s even possible. and have been all in for this adventure with you. I adore every part of you, and every situation is made better with you in it.

It was always you. You were the easiest and greatest decision I ever made. So much so, I didn’t even make it. It was decided for me. I can’t imagine my life without you. You have shaped who I am, and I am a better version of myself because of you.

I vow to be your ally and partner through life, come what may, to stand beside you, support you, and encourage you to chase your dreams.

I promise to always be us, to be weird and silly, and to take every opportunity to make you laugh, to never take life too seriously, and to be okay when people might label you the funny one.

I vow to fight for us, and to protect our love, to never stop working on us, and to take responsibility for our happiness together.

I promise to always find any excuse to celebrate, whether that’s anniversaries, date nights or just because it’s Friday, I will never forget, or take for granted how we feel for each other.

Most of all I promise to love you, unconditionally, as you have loved me, and to always see you through the same eyes I do in this exact moment. The same way I saw you all those years ago. I love you, I choose you, forever and always.
