Wedding vows for him

You’ve landed the love of your life. No one makes you happier than your fiancé (and soon-to-be spouse!). And your wedding vows are the perfect place to put all that love on display. It’s natural that you want to nail this moment—to sweep them off their feet, to bring a picture-perfect tear to their eye, and every other lovely little wedding-day cliché.


That might sound like a lot of pressure, but with some inspiration (and a few tips on how to write your own wedding vows) you can easily deliver vows for your bride or groom that they’ll remember forever (and for all the right reasons).

“Today, [name], 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.”

“In your eyes, I have found my home.
In your heart, I have found my love.
In your soul, I have found my mate.
With you, I am whole, full, alive.
You make me laugh. You let me cry.
You are my breath, my every heartbeat.”

“I pledge to listen to your advice, and occasionally take it.
I pledge to never keep score…even if I’m totally winning.
I pledge to always admire your huge, strong, kind, and determined heart.
I pledge that I will love you.”

“You know me better than anyone else in this world and somehow still you manage to love me. You are my best friend and one true love. There is still a part of me today that cannot believe that I’m the one who gets to marry you.”

“You look so beautiful to me today, but know that you always look beautiful to me and will always be this beautiful to me, tomorrow, and the next day and the next. As gorgeous as you are right here and right now, I will only love you more and more each day.”

“I promise to be your faithful husband. I promise to love you when the sun shines, when the rain falls, in sickness, and in health. When you look at this ring, think of me and remember that I love you always.”

“Our love is unique, because we are unique. Together we make something that has never been seen before. Together we make a force that holds the power to stand against any disaster, an engine of love the likes of which the world has never seen. Take my hand and as your husband I will begin our journey in honest and true devotion.”

“What is a husband? I must admit, I'm not sure. All I know is that I am devoted to you completely and am made a better person because of your love. A husband then is a thing that a good marriage makes, molds, and creates whole. If that is what a husband means, then I am prepared to be yours.”
