Looking for men’s wedding vows for men to use on their wedding day? Nothing compares to the heartwarming feeling of a bride listening to the wedding vow of her husband-to-be in front of family and friends close to her. Indeed, the exchange of wedding vows is the highlight of the wedding ceremony and nothing is ever more delightful than a groom delivering a message of love and commitment to his bride.
However, men are not quite good at putting into words their commitment for a lifetime, thus it can be a little challenging for them to compose their wedding vows.
Personalised Wedding Vows
Personally, I find personalized groom’s wedding vows the sweetest. Any woman would probably agree with that. At many weddings, the traditional vows are usually what the bride and groom say to one another but they are lines that many couples use and may even lose meaning. Of course, writing your own vow means it is your own, it is your promise to your bride and not the promise of every man to their future wives.
Making your wedding vows for the big day can be a little tricky and a daunting task – So here are a few ideas to help you write good wedding vows;
- Recall the first time you met each other.
- Remember positive changes that happened in your life after you met her.
- How does it feel to be in love with your bride? You can describe the feeling and write it down.
- Include the dreams you both have and the lessons you have learned from her.
- Recall special and moving moments that happened to the both of you.
- What you look forward to in the future with your bride and the commitment you have for her.
You don’t have to make very long wedding vows though. Short and concise vows can be equally romantic and sweet as well.
Ideas for Wedding Vows
To help you make your own vows, here are some wedding vows for grooms that may be helpful in expressing your own promise to your bride.
“ Because of you, I laugh, I smile, I dare to dream again.
I look forward with great joy to spending the rest of my
life with you, caring for you, nurturing you, being there for you in all life
has for us, and I vow to be true and faithful for as long
as we both shall live.“
Short wedding vows are also good:
“All that I am and all that I have, I offer to you in love and in joy.
From this day forward I will love and comfort you, hold you close,
prize you above all others,
and remain faithful to you all the days of our lives.”
“ Today, Lisa, I join my life to yours, not merely as your husband, but as your friend, your lover, and your confidant. Let me be the shoulder you lean on, the rock on which you rest,the companion of your life.
With you I will walk my path from this day forward.”
“I love you. You are my best friend.
Today I give myself to you in marriage.
I promise to encourage and inspire you, to laugh with you,
and to comfort you in times of sorrow and struggle.
I promise to love you in good times and in bad,
when life seems easy and when it seems hard,
when our love is simple, and when it is an effort.
I promise to cherish you, and to always hold you in highest regard
These things I give to you today, and all the days of our life.”
“I love you. Today is a very special day.
Long ago you were just a dream and a prayer.
Thank you for being what you are to me.
With our future as bright as the promises of God,
I will care for you, honor and protect you.
I lay down my life for you my friend and my love.”
“It’s heart-warming for a bride to hear you say your vow in front of her family and the people she loves.”
Fun Wedding Vows
Non-sappy, Humorous wedding vows are also becoming a trend these days but be careful in delivering vows like this. Also, Make sure that you can pull it off or it might cause an awkward moment for the two of you.
An an extract from “Yes, I’ll Marry You” by Pam Ayres;
“Yes, I’ll marry you, my dear,
And here’s the reason why;
So I can push you out of bed
When the baby starts to cry,
And if we hear a knocking
And it’s creepy and it’s late,
I hand you the torch you see,
And you investigate.“
After you have pronounced your vows, are you sure you can remember what finger do you wear a wedding ring on? It’s easy to get nervous at wedding ceremony and remembering details in important.
For men, I say, take time to write your own vow. It’s not everyday that you get to deliver your promises and your commitment to your bride and saying them during your big day can be a big deal for women. Of course, it’s also heart-warming for a bride to hear you say your vow in front of her family and the people she loves.
