Traditional or Non-Traditional Vows?

When it comes to a couple’s wedding vows, lots of people take the easy route and just use whatever traditional vows they get from the official.

The problem with vows like these is that they’re often outdated and lack the personal touches that can make wedding vows one of the best parts of the ceremony.

You’ve looked over versions of traditional wedding vows, but the words “to honor and obey” don’t exactly fit with the way that you and your fiancé feel about each other. After all, your relationship has never been boring or conventional, so why shouldn’t you have nontraditional wedding vows?

The best solution for you is to find some modern, nontraditional wedding vows for your ceremony. That way you’ll have wedding vows that truly express your feelings and speak from your heart rather than just repeating the same boring vows that have been used for centuries.

Example Non Traditional Vows

I, name, promise to honor and love you, name.

To remain honest and faithful to you,

To comfort you when you are sad,

To share your joy when you are happy,

To support you,

To grow in love with you,

And to appreciate you,

This day and each day, as long as we shall live.


I, name, take you name,

To be my partner in life,

To have and to hold from this day forward.

I give to you my unending love and devotion.

I promise to be true to you,

To cherish you, and to share my thoughts,

Hopes and dreams with you.

I look forward to spending the rest of my life with you,

My best friend.

I will love you forever.
