Matt Damon recently had a vow renewal and we LOVE how they decided to add in cute, quirky vows to their ceremony. One of his vows was that he would give his wife the side of the bed closer to the bathroom. Pretty cute right?! Did you or will you add anything this personalized into your wedding vows?

 

Happy Planning!

Our vows- sharing and hope it helps someone. All pretty much pieced together from other posts on here. ....................................

 

 

 

Jennifer and Holger

5-19-13

Opening

Welcome Family and Friends –

On behalf of Jennifer and Holger, I want to thank you all for gathering here on this beautiful day to witness their marriage ceremony. The fact that you all have traveled such a great distance to be here today is a testament to the amazing amount of love and support they have. They would like to sincerely thank you all for being here to witness and celebrate this moment. The couple would also like to thank their parents for their everlasting love, support and encouragement and their presence today.

Being assured of your love as lifelong companions, and that you have your families blessings, I now ask, who gives this woman to be married to this man? (Gary Edwards, “I doâ€). Thank you.

 

Vows

(Please face each other and join hands)

Holger –

Do you accept Jennifer to be your wife, to love and to cherish, to share your dreams, successes and challenges, in plenty and in want, in triumph and in failure, in joy and in sorrow, in sickness and in health, for as long as you both shall live? (Holger- “I doâ€)

Jennifer –

Do you accept Holger to be your husband, to love and to cherish, to share your dreams, successes and challenges, in plenty and in want, in triumph and in failure, in joy and in sorrow, in sickness and in health, for as long as you both shall live? (Jennifer- “I doâ€)

 

The Blessing Of The Sea

 

Jennifer and Holger, as we stand by the ocean, may your love always be as constant and unchanging as these never-ending waves that break before us, flowing endlessly from the depths of the sea. Your love came softly upon each other's hearts, just as the sea foam lies softly before us, and just as there will never be a morning without the ocean's flow, may there never be a day without your love for each other.

As the tides ebb and flow so to, do the fortunes of life. Footprints in the sand are washed away, driftwood moves on its endless quest for a peaceful harbor. Only a deep and abiding love can withstand the tides of change in two lives.

Pledge yourselves to each other this day, and promise to be as faithful and dependable as the tide. Just as these waters nourish the earth and sustain life, may your constant love nourish and sustain each other until the end of time.

 

Sand Ceremony –

Holger and Jennifer -you have just sealed your relationship by the exchange of vows. This covenant is a relationship pledge between two people who agree that they will commit themselves to one another throughout their lives. Today, this relationship is symbolized through the pouring of these two individual containers of sand- one, representing you, Jennifer and all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be, and the other representing you Holger and all that you were and all that you are, and all that you will ever be.

I invite you both now to pour the sand from each separate vase into the third vase. As these two containers of sand are poured into the third vase, the individual containers of sand will no longer exist, but will be joined together as one. Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual containers, so will your marriage be. (Pouring of sand- Adele Lovesong)

Rings –

(The rings please)

I will ask you now to seal the vows which have been made, by the giving and receiving of rings. Your wedding rings represent the unconditional love that you have for one another. These rings are a circle with no beginning and no end. Wear them with honor and pride as they are a visible reminder of the vows and promises you have made here today.

Holger, please take this ring and place it on Jenniferâ€s finger and repeat after me:

Jennifer I give you this ring

 as a visible and constant symbol

of my promise to love you

as long as I live.

You are my one true love

and partner in life.

 I will cherish and love you

today, tomorrow and forever.

 I will trust and respect you,

 laugh and cry with you.

I will love you faithfully and unconditionally.

 

Holger I give you this ring

as a visible and constant symbol

of my promise to love you

 as long as I live.

You are my one true love

and partner in life.

I will cherish and love you

 today, tomorrow and forever.

I will trust and respect you,

 laugh and cry with you.

 I will love you faithfully and unconditionally.

 

 

 

 

Closing:

 

We, who are present today, hope that the inspiration of this moment will never be forgotten.  May all your days and years to come be filled with vision, joy and passion.  May the love you now share continue to grow, and may the happiness you bring to each other be a continuing part of your life together. 

 

With friends and family, along with the sun, the sky, and the sea, it is my pleasure to announce the new Husband and Wife, Mr. & Mrs. Jennifer and Holger Pokrandt!

You may now kiss the bride J

Does anyone have a video or the script/order of what is said and done at a MEXICAN CIVIL CEREMONY? I'm having a really hard time finding it... I know there is a judge and a translator, and I think there's fingerprinting at some point, but I don't know where to plan Readings (2) and the sand ceremony...

 

Thanks!

Kaya
