5 Fun Wedding Vows

There’s nothing more romantic than wedding vows, right? groom-yoga

Many are very traditional, most are are sweet and poignant, but some are quite unusual!

People like to take the traditional thoughts of “to have and to hold” and “till death do us part” and make them more personal. One addition to that verbiage that I found on living.msn.com was “through fat and skinny.” Another amendment I saw there that I found amusing is “to love and be faithful for as long as we can stand each other.” Not too romantic, but it’s realistic!

There’s a fun “Nerd Wedding Code” that I saw on geeksaresexy.net. and someone made into a card. It’s got full computer coding for a wedding! Here’s a quick sample:

function do_wed ( ) {
if ($objections  ! = true)  {

My favorite would have to be the Pirate wedding vows. I can’t imagine a better way to sail off into the sunset with my tall, dark and one-legged. Just like monogrammed bathrobes or cutlasses, there are matching ones for him and her. Here arrr! his vows:

I, Mad Dog _______________ take ye, Saucy ______________________ as me Heart, me Soul, me Good Wench with a stout right hook, the bright dawn of each new day and the soft bed of each day’s night. I promise to love ye and honor ye; to make ye laugh when yer feelin’ out of sorts and pretend to listen to ye when ye babble on and on about nothin’ in particular. I will protect you from the elements and the elephants should we ever encounter them as it is my understanding that they can be very large and unpredictable. I will love thee through scurvy and through fire, in wealth or poverty whether ye be near or far. And when I speak of treasure, as I am wont to do, everyone within the sound of me voice will know that what I am really speaking about is you. All of this will I undertake until there are no horizons left to chase and the rum is gone.

And if the suspense is killin’ ye, her matching vows be shown at offbeatbride.com.

And lastly, though certainly not leastly, from the same site, here is a wedding vow for those want to be fully prepared for their future together:

Do you take [name] to be your husband, to have and to hold from this day forward for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish until death or zombies do you part?

Touching isn’t it? I think we’re all a bit touched!

  1. My hubby and I wrote our own vows, and the whole place was teary-eyed by the end (myself included). He’s incredibly romantic AND a writer, so, really, I stood no chance of NOT being overwhelmed! 🙂

  2. I love wedding vows, especially the ones that are personal to the couple getting married. ‘…till zombies do you part’ had me LOL

    In Scars, Benjamin and Selina modified their vows too. My editor loved it. 🙂
