I’ll have to see if I can get a copy of the vows we used. There were really great and personalized to each position as husband and wife.

Obey isn’t actually biblical though so we didn’t have that… ours were totally based on the Eph 5 scripture passage =)

I’ll have to ask my pastor if he can email me a copy. =)

That is exactly what I was looking for. I’m getting married next week and we haven’t figured out our vows yet. I’m looking for Biblical vows that are traditional yet unique.

We are going to talk to our pastor about this sometime in the next few weeks (why yes, I like being ahead of schedule). I would love for anyone to post their vows, I have no idea where to even start. And FI’s only requirement is sometime we get to say “I Do”.

VOWS

Before God our Father, who has given us the gift of love, I _______, join with you, ________, in the covenant of marriage. I thank the Lord for the love that has bound our hearts and lives together in spiritual fellowship of marriage. I will love, honor and cherish you always. As we enter upon the privileges and joys of life’s most holy relationship, and begin together the great adventure of building a Christian home, I will look to Christ as Head of our home as I have looked to Him as Head of the Church. I will love you in sickness as in health, in poverty as in wealth, in sorrow as in joy, and will be true to you by God’s grace, trusting in Him, so long as we both shall live.

YAY I found our Vows!!! Here they are: kinda long but I really really liked them!

Profession of Vows

To Groom: _____________, do you take ____________ as your wife, as your own

flesh, to love her even as Christ loves the Church, to protect her and care for

her for the rest of your lives?

Response: I do

Then turn to her and make this profession of your faith:

I, ___________, according to the Word of God, leave my father and my mother

and I join myself to you, to be a husband to you.

From this moment forward. we shall be one.

To Bride: __________, do you take __________ as your husband, submitting

yourself to him as unto the Lord, showing yourself to him as unto the Lord,

showing respect to him as the head of this union for the rest of your lives?

Response: I do

Then turn to him and make this profession of your faith:

I, ___________, according to the Word of God, submit myself to you, to be a

wife to you. From this moment forward, we shall be one flesh.

 

Presentation of Rings

To Groom:        May I have the Bride’s ring please.

A ring is a very precious thing a token of your faith and your love. This ring is

made out of precious metal. It is a never-ending circle that indicates the

continuing love of God – a love that never fails, never presents itself haughty

or puffed up. The love of God and faith of God is what causes His power to

move in our lives.

I want you to wear these rings as a continual reminder of your faith, a

continual reminder of the confession of faith you have made to each other

and to God.

 

To Groom: Take this ring and place it on her finger, and say to her: (repeat part)

With this ring I thee wed, It is a token of my love for you that I give now, in

Jesus’ name.

 

To Bride:     May I have the Groom’s ring, please.

To Groom:   A ring can mean two different things, It can be a never-ending sign of

love, or it can be a shackle, I am going to charge you with a memory you

should remember always: This woman stands by your side, not under your

feet. You have the responsibility of being the head of this union. You have

spiritual responsiblity . I want you to wear this ring in remembrance that she

is your helpmate. It must never be a shackle of dominance, but always a

reminder of faith and love.

To Bride: I want you to place this ring on his finger with these things in mind.

There is no place in God’s Word that give people the right to dominate one

another. Your vows have stated that you submit to one another in the

responsibilities of this life, expecting God and His power to always make the

difference. So place this ring on his finger, as you do, say to him:

(repeat part)

With this ring, I thee wed, I give it as a token of my faith. I believe with all

my heart that this is forever. It is my love & faith, in the Name of Jesus.

 

Then we had the pronouncement, kiss, and then had a worship song where we

actually stopped and just worshipped God together and then took communion, and

then prayed over us and gave a blessing according to Dueteronomy 28:1-14
