Wedding Vows

Recommended Posts

We are having a legal ceremony and I know that the minister can't sway from what he needs to say in Spanish but can we decide when to do the exchaning of the rings? We weren't even going to say vows but when we heard that the whole thing is in Spanish, we decided to say a little something and thought it would be a nice time to exchange the rings. Is this possible? I loved the vows in one of the first posts and doctered it a little like this:


In the company of our family and friends

and with their love and support,

I Lisa, choose you, Arthur, to be my husband.

I will hold you, laugh with you, and cry with you.

I will be faithful to you in thought, word, and deed.

I will be your loving partner as we build a life together,


And from this day forward, until death do us part, I will stand by you.


This is my promise to you and I gladly make this promise. I am proud to be your wife.

Please take this ring as a symbol of my commitment to you.


So, do you think we'll be able to do the ring exchange ourselves?

OOOH... I'll participate. I wish wish wish I'd seen Tammy's before.... they are an inspiration!!!!




On behalf of Amy and Chad, I welcome you and thank you all for gathering here on this beautiful day to witness their marriage ceremony. The fact that you all have travelled such a great distance to be here today is a testament to the amazing amount of love and support they have.


All of you have given them much happiness, love, warmth, and guidance through the various stages of their lives. They would like to sincerely thank you all for being here to celebrate their big day. A special and respectful acknowledgement must also be made to those friends and family members who were unable to attend, or have passed on, but whose spirit remains alive and strong in all our hearts.


I have also been asked by Amy and Chad to thank their parents for the wonderful lives they have given them, for the hard work and guidance they have provided, for their everlasting love, support, and encouragement. It is from them that they have learned the true meaning of love, friendship and family.

From This Day Forward

(author unknown)


From this day forward, let us laugh together, and plan together, let us find our favourite places, and go together... Let us enjoy the sunshine, and the rain, being alone together, and in crowds together... From this day forward, together, Let us love!


Let Us Walk Together Let us walk together yet not as one, but such that our shadows are separate and distinct, such that our souls are unbound and free. Let us share our time, yet do not give all your time, nor take all of mine for in order to develop to the fullest, to be free, we must have solitude and individuality.


Let me wander in solitude, when I need to be alone, yet be near, when I need you. Let us share our love. Give freely of your love, but do not smother me, my soul must breathe a free air. Take my love, but do not demand it, for love given of obligation, is stale and without life. Let us share our lives.


Share my life, but do not try to shape it. Let me share your life, but do not let it revolve around me. Let us share ourselves. Accept me as I am, do not attempt to change me to fit your dreams. Respect me for what I am, not for what I was or one day may be. Share yourself with me, but do not allow me to limit your freedom or bind your soul. Let us share our minds, thoughts, goals, values and dreams. Let us develop these within ourselves without restriction or loss of freedom


Thus our two free souls, may wander together as they develop in freedom. As we share our lives, as we walk through life together, know my love is yours, but not my soul for it must be free.




As an expression that you are joined together in love - will you please hold up your hands and hold one another, so you may feel the gift that you are to each other.


These are the hands of your best friend, young and strong and full of love for you, that are holding yours on your wedding day as you promise to love each other today, tomorrow, and forever.


These are the hands that will work alongside yours as together you build your future.


These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years, and with the slightest touch, will comfort you like no other.


These are the hands that will hold you when fear or grief fills your mind.


These are the hands that will wipe the tears from your eyes; tears of sorrow and tears of joy.


These are the hands that will give you strength when you need it.


These are the hands that will tenderly hold your children.


These are the hands that will help you to hold your family as one.


And lastly, these are the hands that even when wrinkled and aged will still be reaching for yours, still giving you the same unspoken tenderness with just a touch.




Sandra to request the rings from Matthew (Best Man)


I Chad choose you Amy to be my friend, my lover and the mother of my children.

Amy, With this ring,

I give you my promise that from this day forward, you shall not walk alone.

With friends and family, along with the sun, the moon, and the sea, I have the pleasure of announcing you as husband and wife.


Chadwick, you may kiss your bride.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
