Ah! Romantic wedding vows! Filled with flowery words and loving promises, the ideal way for Cinderella and her Prince to declare their undying and unending love for each other.
I've put together some examples of my favourite romantic wedding vows, and while they may not suit everyone, are worth having a look at. You never know they may inspire you and give you ideas for writing your own wedding vows!
I (Name) affirm my love to you, (name) as I invite you to share my life. You are the most beautiful,
smart and generous person I have ever known and I promise always to respect you and love you.
With kindness, unselfishness and trust, I will work by your side to create a wonderful life together.
I take you (name) to be my lawful wife/husband to have from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, as long as we both shall live.
(Name) from the moment I first saw you, I knew you were the one with whom I wanted to share my life. Your beauty, heart and mind inspire me to be the best person I can be. I promise to love you for eternity, respecting you, honouring you, being faithful to you and sharing my life with you. This is my solemn vow.
(Name), today I take you for my wife/husband. I promise to love you without reservation, comfort you in times of distress, encourage you to achieve all of your goals, laugh with you and cry with you, grow with you in mind and spirit, always be open and honest with you and cherish you for as long as we both shall live.
(Name), today I take you to be my wife/husband. Together we will create a home, becoming a part of one another. I vow to help create a life that we can cherish, inspiring your love for me and mine for you. I vow to be honest, caring and truthful, to love you as you are and not as I want you to be, and to grow old by your side as your lover and best friend.
Many people spend their lives searching for their soul mate, their one true love. Some people are
lucky to find the person they can truly call the better half of themselves, while others spend the
rest of their lives searching and never finding. I am happy to count myself among the lucky ones
because I found you.
I love you (name), I know you are the only one for me, my one true love. I am happy and I am grateful that you came into my life, that where others have spent their entire lives looking for the other one, I have found you. And now that I have found you, I shall never let you go. I promise you (name), that I shall hold you and cherish you, and give you my heart, that I shall support you and care for you. Faithfully, I shall always stand steadfast by your side with your hand in mine, regardless of what life would bring us. I take you now as my wife/husband and I shall remain so for the rest of my life.
My beloved (name), do you remember the first day we met? From the very moment I saw you, I knew you
were the one for me, the one I knew I had to spend the rest of my life with.
Our courtship was one of the best times of my life, for you have become not just my lover, but also my best friend.
I want to be your lover, your companion and your best friend for the rest of my life. I promise to love and cherish you, to keep you close with faithfulness, to be your prop and helpmate in times of need, to make you laugh and top hold you when you cry, to hold you in the highest honour and respect as you so deserve, for the rest of my life.
(Name), you once told me you were afraid of growing old. You told me then that to grow old means to be alone, and it frightens you. But I want you to grow old (name). I want you to grow old with me I want to watch the wrinkles form on your face and every strand of your hair turn white., because to me you would be most beautiful even when you are wrinkled and grey. You do not have to fear being alone, my beloved (name) because I shall be with you. Grow old with me. I promise to love you faithfully, to care for you and to cherish you, to provide you with support and everything you need, to respect and honour you. All my days left to me, I vow to spend them all loving you.
Don't they bring a tear to your eye?? Some of just about the most romantic declarations of love I have ever read in my long career as a Fairy Godmother!
