Find some of our best examples below, whether you're looking for a good cry or some ideas for penning your own.
1. The furious, limitless, and scorching desire I feel for you cannot be adequately described by the word "love," which is both too soft and used far too often.
I wish I could find the words to express how much I care about you. It's not the fluttering of the stomach or the tightening of the chest that makes love, but rather the blending of identities and the merging of souls. Using the word "love" to describe the boundless, unquenchable ardour I feel for you is an insult to the power of that emotion.
You're the answer to every little girl's prayers and every wish she's ever had. What a generous person you are. Stupidity is what you own. You have a high IQ. You have an infectious laugh, and no one else I know can finish an entire Baskin Robbins ice cream cake in one sitting. Your acceptance of my flaws and appreciation of my talents are both appreciated.
Every day, you inspire me to strive for personal improvement. For now, tomorrow, and the rest of time, I accept you just as you are to be my spouse. I guarantee that I will always look at you with the same adoration and affection that I do right now, even when we are old and grey.
For this reason, I pledge now to always value and appreciate you, to always back you up, and to always cheer you on. Whatever the future may hold, I pledge to share it with you, to dream with you, to rejoice with you, and to walk by you.
If you'll have me at your side through happiness and sadness, I promise to share in both. For the rest of my life, I will tirelessly seek you out, fiercely defend you, and love you without reservation or reservation of any kind. To have a friend like you in my life is the luckiest thing that has ever happened to me.
2. If we are going to spend the rest of our lives together, it's important to me to remind you that McDonald's isn't healthy and that you should have that mole checked.
It's easy for me to stand here and profess my love for you, but words are empty unless they're backed up by consistent, thoughtful gestures.
- When the Patriots win, I'll be right there to celebrate with you, and I'll put the blame squarely on Bill Belichik's shoulders whenever they don't.
- If you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives together, I'm going to have to constantly reminding you that McDonald's is bad for you and that you should have that mole checked.
- I promise to keep laughing at ourselves, not taking ourselves too seriously, and keeping our immaturity intact so that we can still eat grilled cheese and pancakes for dinner.
- I solemnly swear to rely on and respect your judgement.
- I commit to being your constant companion on all of life's journeys.
- In spite of the difficulties we may face, I promise to never stop fighting for us.

When it comes to my love and care, you will receive nothing less than what Ella receives from me.
I'll always let you have some of what I'm eating, I won't go to bed furious, and I'll respect your love of the Red Sox. however, your enthusiasm for surfing is not shared by us.
I will be here to support you as you take on the world. Pay attention to what you have to say.
When you're laughing, I'll laugh with you, and when you're down, I'll be there to hold you.

Thinking back on our first date makes me chuckle. During sushi, can you recall the name of the couple who sat next to us? They leant over and asked how the date was going while you used the restroom and offered to cover for me if things were going poorly. I leant in closer and said how I'd been waiting around for you for a real date for the past 22 years, borderline stalking you the whole time.
We've already been tested as a couple by the trials and tribulations of this trip, and we've come out on the other side with our communication, commitment, and love for one another stronger for it. As a business partner, this is the most development I've ever experienced. There is more love and support in our relationship than I could have asked for. I've never felt more loved or secure, and the trust we've developed and fought so hard to keep is priceless. Then, once again, I appreciate it.
The old adage goes something like, "Better not to make a commitment at all than to make one and not be able to keep it." Because of this, I understand the gravity of this pledge. I swear...
Support us in facing difficulties and rejoicing over successes big and small.
I want to remind you every day how much you mean to me and how much I appreciate you.

First of all, let me tell you how much I adore you. The fact that you're good-looking and designed like an action figure is fantastic, but that's just the cherry on top. The fact that you have such a generous soul is the nicest quality about you. You are the most unselfish and generous person I know, and I praise God continually for the unwavering love you have bestowed upon me.

6. Your "heart" and "arms" are the only places I feel safe and at home.
I've known you were someone unique ever since the first time we met. Even though I hate the food there, Liam Maguire's will always be my favourite restaurant in the world. When I realised that true love isn't something you go out and look for, but rather something that finds you, I knew I'd found the truth.
You know my flaws and faults better than anyone else, but you never make me feel bad about myself. I can always count on your unconditional love. You affirm me in ways I never imagined possible, and as a result, I work harder than ever to be the best wife and mum I can be.

I pledge to never go into battle against you, but rather to fight besides you. To this day, I pledge to be your most ardent supporter, trusted advisor, and loyal friend.

7. Even if I've urged you to turn the lights out every night for the previous week, I swear I will never get upset at you for making an honest mistake.
As the old adage goes, "You don't realise what you have 'til it's gone. You were my first meaningful high school romance, and at the time I didn't know how blessed I was. It was so effortless and natural to be with you back then that I took you for granted. I didn't understand how much I relied on you until we went our own ways for college. Day in and day out, you were the first and last person I spoke to. When my life was changing at lightning speed, you were the one thing that stayed the same. For the first time in years, we were reunited thanks to your strong will and perseverance, which led you to North Carolina with me.
Again, you were my solid ground when we were thousands of miles from home and facing unfamiliar dangers. Through many years, our love blossomed and blossomed. Many exciting and instructive experiences were enjoyed by all. Having you as a roommate was like sharing a house with a close friend. It was so simple that I didn't know how much I relied on you until I went on a trip without you. Then I realised I couldn't imagine life after you left.
You have taught me so much about love and being loved over the past few years, and now all I want is to be with you forever. I will always look out for you and treat you and your loved ones like they were my own. I will encourage and inspire you, but I will not demand changes from you that I myself am not willing to make. Even if I've urged you to turn the lights out every night for the previous week, I guarantee I will never become angry with you because you made an honest mistake. I assure you that we shall be eternally young at heart and that we will always be able to share in exciting new experiences together. I'll never go a day without giving you a kiss and telling you that you're beautiful, both inside and out, as God created you to be. When we disagree, I pledge to listen to you with an open mind. We'll never fight in bed, and every night I'll tell you I love you.
Having a relationship with you is what gives my life meaning. In saying "yes," you made my dream come true.

8. While the memory of that bright day in Minnewaska may fade with time, the image of your radiant smile will remain etched in my mind forever.
Today is the first day of the rest of our life. It may have taken you eight years, but in those 2,920 days, you proved to me that you are completely and totally committed to me. When I first laid eyes on you, I knew I had discovered a form of joy I had previously only encountered in fiction. I won't go so far as to say that I fell madly in love with you the moment I laid eyes on you during our sophomore year of high school's photography field trip to Minnewaska, but I do remember the moment well. Your grin was so beautiful, and I admired the way you handled yourself. It was like the world around us had stopped for an instant, and it was then that I realised how much I needed you.
From an early age on, we knew each other was special. Since then, we've worked hard to build a life together based on our shared values of faith, laughter, adventure, and trust. We went from being two young, naive people who loved without boundaries to mature adults who know that true love requires sacrifice and commitment. You express your affection in such a tender and altruistic manner. It's in the way you look at me with such kindness and understanding, in the way you listen to me no matter how much I ramble, in the way you encourage me to keep going even when I don't think I have it in me to go any farther. Because you love me exactly as I am, without condition or criticism, and because you choose to see the best in me, regardless of my imperfections, I have known from an early age that I want to spend the rest of my life with you. I want to take this next step in my life with you since you are my best friend and the man for the job.
My goal from now on is to make you laugh, even if it's at me rather than with me. I will do my best to ensure that our connection never becomes stale or monotonous as a result of the daily grind. I will always prioritise you and care for you first. Your worth to me as a wife is something I will never stop stressing, even if you're sick of hearing it. Since life is too short to waste even a minute being resentful towards one another, I pledge that I will never allow us to go to sleep angry. To make us stronger as a unit, I pledge to motivate and encourage you to develop personally. I pledge my undying love to you till we are both old and grey. You may grow older, but your youthful grin will always bring me back to that warm day in Minnewaska.
You have made my choice really simple. Having finally said "yes," I have been constantly thanking and praising our God ever since. No amount of words could ever express how lucky and fortunate I feel to have you in my life. I hope to spend the rest of my life demonstrating to you how much I appreciate your unconditional, boundless, and empathetic love.
That's how much I care about you. Okay, time to party!
9. I'll be here to lift you up in prayer, share in your hopes and dreams, help you start a family, and give you words of encouragement.
You have my utmost respect. For no other reason than your gentle nature, generous heart, and optimistic outlook. Your charming sense of humour is one of my favourite qualities about you. I will forever be appreciative of your sacrificial love. In exchange, I will do the following.
You have my undying love, loyalty, and esteem. I pledge to always love you no matter what, and to develop with you in every way possible. I pledge to join you in worship, share in your hopes and aspirations as a partner in building a family, and lift you up in prayer. I pledge to be there for you through the good and bad times, and to celebrate and mourn with you as we experience everything that God has to offer us together.
You have been my best friend for a very long time, and now you are my husband. I vow to love and cherish you forever with these words and every other phrase in my heart. Constantly and without end. Say it with me: "I adore you.
10. I will never again leave meals in your beard.
Since you came into my life, I've been happier, my smile has widened, and my heart has expanded. Even though I've had to face a lot of challenges since we first met, I've never felt lonely. I pledge to love you not just as you are now, but also as you develop into the future. I will love you no matter what, and I will share in your joy and your sorrow.
After every meal, I swear there won't be a crumb left in your beard.
While I recognise that we each have our flaws, I commit to always reminding myself of all the ways in which we complete each other.
Above all things, I will make sure I'm not simply being a jerk because I'm hungry, and I promise to love, respect, and support you.
I pledge to be a loyal and loving partner and to put our family's welfare ahead of my own. I'm yours through thick and thin, good health and bad, setbacks and successes. Whatever the future has for us, I promise to share my hopes and joys with you and to be by your side every step of the way. You are the one and only love of my life and the centre of my universe.
When I say "I do," I don't think of it as a commitment, but as a privilege: I get to share in your joys and sorrows, your sorrows and your care. I get to go for jogs and walks with you; help construct your home and share your daily life. It is with all my heart that I take you as my husband.
11. You are my dearest friend, my confidant, and my devoted soldier.
Tears are welling up in my eyes even as I type these words to you. Finally, the time has come for us to become husband and wife. Things happened at just the right time for us, as they tend to do. When did the first time occur, anyway? My desire to spend the rest of my life with you was immediate, and I never told you this. They claim you shouldn't feel anything except peace and serenity when you meet your soul partner. And your inherent serenity has always been one of your most endearing qualities.
Forever and always, yours, I adore you. That you still make me feel all tingly inside whenever we cross paths is wonderful. I adore how much you worry about me and others you love. I really appreciate your tolerance and understanding.
I appreciate your willingness to explore new activities with me in search of what will bring me joy. I appreciate your dedication to helping others and, most of all, I cherish our loving relationship.
Thanks to what you've shown me, I can now view things more clearly and with greater perspective. You have taught me what it is to love and made me feel both vulnerable and capable all at once. As we continue this chapter of our lives together, know that you are in my thoughts, prayers, and held in my hand forever. Always and forever, you will have my undying adoration, utmost respect, and deepest affection.
How fortunate I am to have discovered the one I will spend the rest of my life with. First and foremost, you are my dearest friend, and secondarily, you are my soldier. It makes me giddy to think about spending the rest of my life with you. Tonight, I pledge to be the best partner in life and love you could ask for. To paraphrase a common expression, "I love you more than the moon and back."

FAQs About Wedding Vows
As long as the marriage certificate has your legal names on it, it's really up to you what names you use during the ceremony. We are using our full names.
They are the words spoken by the couple to each other which express both an intent and a promise. They express how the couple intend to relate to each other, how they intend to navigate the path of life together, and what meaning they intend to give to their marriage.
By definition, wedding vows are exactly what they sound like: a solemn vow and agreement between two people on the day they become legally wed. Depending on where you're located in the country and if you are saying "I do" in a church, there may be some regulations to follow.
