It may seem daunting to condense your love story and what you feel for your significant other into one small speech. Hopefully the tips, prompts, and examples I’m about to share will help you write your own wedding vows that you can be proud of.
Chase and Victoria chose to read their wedding vows privately to each other (besides the photographers/videographer) in the most special intimate setting. They were probably the most emotional vows I’ve witnessed yet.
Chase: I promise to lead you towards Christ and be an example for you to follow every day of our lives. I promise to protect you and always make you feel safe and known and understood. I promise to be patient with you and give you grace when you need it. I promise to be gentle with your heart and understanding when tough times come. I promise to make you laugh when you need to laugh and hold you when you need to cry. I promise to tell you you are beautiful and affirm you every day so you can be confident in yourself the same way I am confident in you. I promise to shower you with gifts and keep the surprises coming so that we will never get stuck in the same boring routine. I promise to show you off in public and never hide how much I love you. I promise to be silly with you and enjoy the gifts God has given us and has in store for us. I promise to keep things clean and tidy the best I can. I promise to put your dreams and goals before mine, because you mean more to me than any other dream I could ever think of. Tor, I promise to love you forever and ever and I can’t wait to start the journey today.
Victoria: Than you. Thank you for loving me better and deeper than I ever thought possible. Today and every day I promise to be here, to be fully present and committed to you. I promise to hold your hand through hills and valleys. I promise to try to make you laugh each day and never go to bed angry. I promise to try to make you laugh each day and never go to bed angry. I promise I won’t run when things get heard. I choose to stay even when life feels overwhelming and our hearts are hurting. I promise not to push you away, to let you into my world, my heart and my mind even when it feels messy. Chase, I promise to pursue Jesus with you, to let the Holy Spirit lead us whoever we go. I promise to always point you to him and to make him the cornerstone of our marriage. I can’t promise our life together will be easy, but I promise to stay by your side through it all. I promise to play games with you and give you a hug each day. I promise to see the possibilities with you, support your dreams, and dream with you. You are the love of my life, my best friend forever. Today I promise to be your girl for the rest of my life.
