Here we have pieced out a few timeless ideas and inspirations, on how your wedding vows can be crafted to help you get started.
The Christian/Catholic couple
I,(name), take you (name) to be my wedded (husband/wife), to have and to hold from this day forward, for better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death do us part: according to God’s holy law, and thereto I pledge you my love and faithfulness. With this ring, I thee wed.
I, (name), take you, (name), to be my husband. I will be yours in times of plenty and in times of want, in times of sickness and in times of health, in times of joy and in times of sorrow, in times of failure and in times of triumph. I promise to love, honour and cherish you, for all the days of my life.
The Romantic Vow
(Name), with all my love, I take you to be my wife/husband. I will love you through good and the bad, through joy and the sorrow. I promise to love you without conditions, to honour you each and every day, to laugh with you when you are happy, to support you when you are sad, to guide you when you ask for direction, to challenge you to be a better person, and allow you to do the same for me, to be your biggest fan and your ever present listening audience. Together we will face all of the life’s experiences and share one another’s dreams and goals. I promise I will be your equal partner in a loving, honest relationship, for as long as we both shall live. Today I marry you with no hesitations or doubts. With these words and my whole heart, I give you my life.

I look forward to spending the rest of my life with you, through thick and thin, through fat and skinny, even when you are old and gila, I will be there for you forever.
The Funny Vow
I promise to love you as much as I love my credit card and not hold your poor fashion sense against you. I will only show you my new clothes during the commercial break. From this day forward, I will make sure your lucky red shirt is washed for every game day, and you will have plenty of potato chips on hand. I will love you for richer or poorer, as long as our credit limit stays high.
The Movie inspired Vow
Taken from the movie, The Vow (2012):
Paige: I vow to help you love life, to always hold you with tenderness and to have the patience that love demands, to speak when words are needed and to share the silence when they are not, to agree to disagree on red velvet cake, and to live within the warmth of your heart and always call it home.
Leo: I vow to fiercely love you in all your forms, now and forever. I promise to never forget that this is a once in a lifetime love. And to always know in the deepest part of my soul that no matter what challenges might carry us apart, we will always find our way back to each other.
The Vow in Chinese
The Muslim Wedding Vow
Muslim couples do not generally recite vows but rather listen to the words of the imam, who will speak about the significance of the commitment of the marriage and the couple’s responsibilities toward each other and Allah. The bride and groom are asked three times if they accept each other in marriage according to the terms of their traditional marriage contract, or Nikah.
However, some Muslim brides and grooms do choose to also exchange vows.
Bride: “I,(name), offer you myself in marriage and in accordance with the instructions of the Holy Koran and the Holy Prophet, peace and blessing be upon him. I pledge, in honesty and with sincerity, to be for you an obedient and faithful wife.”
Groom: “I,(name), pledge, in honesty and sincerity, to be a faithful and good husband for you.”
