Wedding Vows and Declarations

This gallery contains resources to help you write your own wedding vows.


There is no end to the number and types of wedding ceremonies. Some are steeped in tradition. Others are as new as new age. Taking into consideration your faith, denomination, and the requirements of the governing body and/or the minister or official who is going to perform the ceremony, you must determine how much leeway you will be given in modifying traditional vows or whether or not you will be given the opportunity of creating your own ceremony and/or vows.

1) The Greeting
2) The Declaration of Intentions (Wedding Vows)
3) The Exchange of Rings
