With This Ring, I Thee Wed
October 29, 2008 by Yelena Jenkins
Wedding vows are immensely powerful. They are spoken from the heart, filled with promise and emotion, and can even be legally binding. Since it can be tricky to find the perfect words for your ring exchange, we’ve compiled a shortlist of a few of our favorite versions. Whether you want vows that are traditional, unique or filled with personal meaning, we found it – along with the perfect wedding ring to match.
For the traditional or religious couple, the below vows are simple yet classic:
I give you this ring as a symbol of my vow, and with all that I am, and all that I have, I honor you, in the name of God.
A couple who chooses this vow appreciates tradition, and would look great exchanging classic white gold or yellow gold wedding bands. Just like these rings, the traditional couple is no frills but always in style.
Non-Religious and Unique
This ring I give to you as a token of my love and devotion. I pledge to you all that I am and all that I will ever be as your (husband/wife). With this ring, I happily marry you and look forward to growing old with you by my side, for as long as we both shall live.
This couple has their own sense of fashion, and likes a twist on the traditional. A diamond-studded band in hammered white gold is the perfect pick for him, her or both. Vintage-loving brides should also take a peek at the engraved antique and diamond eternity bands.
Sentimental and Meaningful
A wedding ceremony gives couples the unique chance to express their feelings for each other in front of all the people they love. It is a rare and beautiful moment that sentimental couples should fill with deep, meaningful vows:
I love you with a depth I cannot express in words, but one that fills me with peace and happiness. With this ring, I hand my body and soul to you, (insert fiance‘s name), for safekeeping in your heart. I know that you will not let it spoil, for you are the love of my life and will stay by my side for as long as we both shall live.
To forever commemorate the beautiful words spoken to one another, choose wedding rings engraved with your sacred vows. They come in a variety of styles, including hammered gold, flat bands and traditional yellow gold bands.
