Civil Ceremony Wedding Vows Comments

  • Minister

    Many are asking for obey and until death do you part from their vows.
    My substitution is honor, cherish and love (obey) and until the end of your forever (death do you part)

  • Moved

    I've been looking for a set of vows that say exactly what I want to say to my H2B for a while, and these are just perfect. I was moved to tears reading them, and I can't wait to read them to him on our wedding day. Thank you!

  • Dreadful

    I choose you as the person with whom I will spend my life, sounds more like someone doing a weekly shop in a terrible supermarket - I can not believe that a few comments have said the words are beautiful - and that they made someone cry? Sorry I disagree - I would weep if these words were said to me - in sheer horror and disgust

    These vows are perfect! I was really freaking out about what vows we should have, but these say it all, and bring tears to my eyes.

  • aflkafslk

    I like these vows. I like that they're not sexist (like the vows at the last wedding I attended were!), and they're simple. I also like how they can be easily modified to suit the couple perfectly. Wonderful!

  • Good

    Nice words I would replace the faults part with "I take you as you are as I offer myself to you as I am"

    Becs 2012-06-14

  • Faults

    I think the faults part does fit. It's kind of like, "I take you as you are and I'll never make you change"

  • civial ceromony vows

    lovely vows and straight to the point I've added to more personal words just to finish it of

    joanne 2012-05-31

  • I used these vows..

    I never practiced the vows before I got married.. I messed up the words.. and I tried to put the ring on the wrong hand.. and yet.. it was still so beautiful and perfect. I will never forget the day I said these words to my husband. I will always mean them!

    Mayra - I believe honesty is one of the master-keys to a successful marriage, so without actually listing off specific "faults" mentioning the existence of them is actually healthier than denying them. We are human, we have faults, and it's a reality we must face, especially when contemplating something as sacred as marriage.

  • Solution

    I may have a solution to the faults issue.
    "I take you, as you are, I offer myself to you as I am".

    Cindy 2012-03-10

  • Beautiful

    beautiful words, perfect!
    Exactly what needs to be said!!

    steph manfield 2012-02-21

  • c.c.vows

    Yes,we all have faults,this is good.I plan to use it today in a ceremony.

    Dean cox 2012-02-18

  • for a lifetime

    Accepting each other for your nomatter what issue comes up is marrage we all have problems..but marrage builds in us confidence that we will be loved nomatter what. If you can't be realistic about the fact there will be problems and that you can overcome them together you should promise to be with someone forever

    leon 2012-02-12

  • Perfect Vows

    My husband and I selected these and they were perfect for our wedding and suited our relationship as we have had many ups and downs. Thank you for these vows as we had difficulty writing our own.

    Kim 2011-12-18

  • Imperfections

    Try substituting faults or weaknesses with imperfections.... Not quite as negative sounding..

    paula 2011-11-07

  • goooooooooood

    i like it mein i needed one cause i have tu get marrien 2 times

    lara 2011-10-19

  • Civil Ceremony Vows

    Try substituting "weaknesses" for 'faults'. We all have them.
    I used some of these for my 30 year vow renewals.

    Sharon 2011-10-03

  • honest

    I am impressed with this vow. It has honesty ans truth to it so it covers the main part of marriage.

    melat 2011-07-06

  • Faults

    I like that it includes faults because no one is perfect. In a marriage there will be good times and bad times.

    Jennifer 2011-05-31

  • awful

    these are horrible!! nasty nasty vows there cheap and nasty jeez i could write my own better its like a kid wrote these!!

    sarah 2011-05-31

  • Faults doesnt fit in......

    These vows are nice but the faults part is what throws me off, its as if we were supposed to say them. Its weddings not confessions.

    Mayra 2011-05-05

  • Wow

    Wow these are beautiful, my sister and I wrote my own vows and I cannot wait till I get to say them to my mr perfect, I hope I get every word right x

    Mary Lou 2011-02-05

  • Loving

    Life is full of faults, more often than strengths, especially in matters concerning relationships. This is really honest and sweet.

    Beloved 2010-09-23

  • To Lyla

    You could argue that adding the faults part is positive, not only is it realistic but you're vowing to accept them from the start.

    Laura 2010-07-23

  • re re re faults

    yes guys we all have faults... the beauty of marriage is that our beloved still loves and accepts us knowing this

    becci 2009-11-28

  • mmm

    Needs to be more positive getting married is much more of a cheerful event than what those vows convey.

    mylene 2009-11-12

  • ceremony vows

    yeah fantastic, exactly what i was looking for

    john 2009-10-28

  • what...........

    Lyla...I agree ! Yes we all have faults but no need to pint it out on the happiest day of your life !

    Brummie 2009-10-14

  • Vows

    I can think of far more beautiful words to say to my H2B than talking about his faults! Surely your wedding vows should be positive!

    Julie 2009-08-25

  • nice

    very nice vows thinking of using them at my wedding

    Nikki 2009-08-24

  • For Real

    I disagree, Lyla. I believe these vows are very realistic. no one is perfect. we all have positives & negatives in our human makeup.

    John 2009-07-02

  • repetitive a little bit

    I found it sweet n short but a bit repetitive and as lyla says positive would be nice ;) other than that its alright i suppose im geeting marries march 27th 02009 hope im not blushing through them or laugh through nervousness wish me luck ;)

    Debbie 2009-03-16

  • Rubbish

    How can anyone stand infront of friends and family and say that their husband/wife to be has faults?
    I soumds as though they are saying ' I love you even though you have loads of faults, but ill marry you anyway'. It just doesnt sound right!

    Vicky 2009-01-07

  • from peru

    I like these because it is realistic. we are all human and have faults, which should definitely be recognized before getting married otherwise you set yourself up for divorce! The wedding vows that they gave me for the Civil ceremony in Peru, promise that I will make my husband happy for the rest of his life!! I canĀ“t live up to that

    Kim 2008-08-13

  • Faults

    Anyone who thinks they or their intended doesn't have faults is getting married too soon!

    Jan Koszuta 2008-03-16

  • Vows

    We said these vows at our ceremony on February 2, 2008 and they were perfect. Everyone thought they were so meaningful.... which they are!

    Jackie 2008-02-06

  • Civil ceremony vows

    i like them a lot and plan to use them I l like how is shows that you know each other isn't perfect - i think its good to recognize faults too

    Katy 2008-01-13

  • lighten up

    Everyone has their faults. You can be nieve and ignore that, but its true. And saying in your weddings vows that you will love and adore that person even with their faults is beautiful! My husband has his faults, as do i and we both said in our vows (and everyday) that despite these, we will love each other forever.

    Beccy Boo 2007-12-28

  • Vows

    This is way to complicated. Need something short & simple. Straight forward but meaningful.

    Chris 2007-12-02

  • It Rings True

    This is a very simple and meaningful vow. It has utter clarity and conveys just the right amount of emotion without being sappy. If one doesnt care for a word, such as 'faults', the word 'weaknesses'could be used instead. This is just a beautiful, strong vow. I think any groom would appreciate its simplicity.

    Nina 2007-11-26

  • civil ceromony vows

    LOVE IT! simple but beautiful at the same time.

    Nicola 2007-07-20

  • Civil Ceremony vows

    i absolutley love these vows! I'm having a civil ceremony and i prefer these than church vows!! cause everyone has there faults!!!

    Vickie 2007-07-14

  • hey

    it's obvious that everyone has faults. or maybe lyla, you don't, but the others do.

    nelly 2007-07-12

  • wow

    What a perfect way to say what the devotion of marriage means without being all sappy and flowery. Most vows seem so trite, contrived, and frankly- meaningless and insincere- just a bunch of words. This is true and honest.

    Angie 2007-06-02

  • what

    What's with all the faults business? A bit more positive would be nice.

    Lyla 2007-04-16

  • Civil ceremony vows

    I have been practising these for a month and they still make me cry. I can't wait to say them to my H2B they say excatly what I want to say to him. Hope I'm word perfect on the day!

    Tracie King 2007-03-23

  • Civil Ceremony vows

    Wow! These are beutiful! These are just as strong and powerful as those at a church wedding! Thank you for writing these!
