Wedding vows are an integral part of any wedding ceremony. It’s that key moment where you and your fiancé express the feelings you have to one another. Take some inspiration from these notable characters that wrote their own wedding vows. Whether you want your guests to laugh or grab a tissue, these promises will personalize your wedding perfectly.
Noah: “So it’s not going to be easy. It’s going to be really hard. And we are going to have to work at this everyday. But I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday.”
Written on a Post-it note and signed by Meredith and Derek: “To love each other, even when we hate each other. No running ever; nobody walks out no matter what happens. Take care when old, senile, smelly.”
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.”
When Harry Met Sally
Harry: “I love that you get cold when it’s 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you’re looking at me like I’m nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it’s not because I’m lonely, and it’s not because it’s New Year’s Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”
Sleepless in Seattle
Sam: “It was a million tiny little things that, when you added them all up, they meant we were supposed to be together, and I knew it. I knew it the very first time I touched her. It was like coming home, only to no home I’d ever known. I was just taking her hand to help her out of a car and I knew. It was like magic.”
