Our ceremony said nothing like that. The part that makes the marriage legal, at least to my knowledge in the US, is the signing of the marriage license (by the couple and the legal/ordained officiant). If you’ve got that, you’re married.

@Mrs. Gremmlin:  +1, we wrote our own ceremony with the same basic parts:


Definition of Marriage

Community’s Declaration of Intent

Declaration of Intent


Ceremony (we signed our marriage license)


OP, Your officiant should be able to explain these rules to you and help you put things together.

Here in Kentucky, US, what makes it legal is that it is performed by a minister and that we sign the marriage certificate. We can pretty much do whatever else we want.
