Picking up the bride at her house is one of the highest point of the wedding day…
… as there are a series of “door games” for the groom to go through to get to the bride.
One of the challenge, “The Love Vows”, is indispensable.
Though, it can be a serious and sweet moment in the gatecrashing games and to lift the guests’ mood.
The bride wants her fiancé to say the promise out loud…
… and the groom wants to pick their fiancee up with the love vow.
No matter you are the bride or the groom, you need to be well prepared for the “Love Vows”…
…Because your Fiancé may not be able to create a satisfied love vow with his lack of creativity!
Or your fiancée may not decide to prepare it for you and want you to create it at the moment so as to see if you are sincere enough to get to her.
In either ways…
… here’s 7 tips with sample INES WEDDING came up to help you get started on your own love vow.
So that you can hear a satisfied and sweet love vow from your love…
…And to start a perfect Big Day!
LOVE VOWS TEMPLATE
1.FUNNY VERSION－－Relaxing yet sweet
Love vows can go a bit too sappy so that the groom may be embarrassed to say it out…
If you are not saying it out smoothly, the bridesmaids may not be satisfied…and they won’t let you pick up the bride.
How about a funny wedding vow?
A funny love vow usually comes with a nice rhythm or a humorous content.
A vow like a rap with humour will be easier for the groom to say it out smoothly.
Yet, to bring more laughter !
It is really a good choice if you want to make the atmosphere more relaxing and sweet!
Sample 1：A bit sappy
With this ring I thee wed…to have, to hold, to love,
Through turkey season, deer and duck, and even squirrel and dove.
I will be to you a rock of strength on which you can depend,
And will bless you with my presence when the hunting seasons end.
Turkey beards and antlers I will keep in their due place,
And will only leave on hunting trips with a smile upon my face.
I will vow no excess bragging when my catch is rather small,
And my thoughts will always be of you though the woods may often call…
And so it is with deep devotion I say those words,
” I DO” For no greater loves in my life you’ll find…
…than my hunting, dear, and YOU!!!!
Sample 2: more than a bit…
I, (Groom’s name), promise to count every penny that comes into our grasp,
and account for it using two-column ledgers
and everything your accountant has done previously.
I promise to love you, (Bride’s name), unconditionally,
in sickness and in health, till death do us part,
even when you feel the need to accessorize with $400 shoes.
Sample 3: sappy but sweet!
I (Groom’s name), take you (Bride’s name), to be my lawfully wedded wife.
To be together in happiness and strife,
To have and to hold,
Even if your cooking grows mold.
I love you in richness and in debt,
And cherish all moments since we have met.
I promise to love you until the end of my days,
As long as you stay out of my baseball plays.
I pledge to be faithful
Even when we’re old and dull.
The vow is funny and humorous but that doesn’t mean you treat it as a joke!
Don’t ever make the bride feels like you are saying it whimsically…
…or your Big Day will turns out to be a Bad day.
2. Conventional Version－－Serious and Sincere
…You can choose the conventional one.
A conventional vow is not fancy, the content is just all about your feelings.
You can easily change the content from the sample or just simply talk about your feelings at the moment.
Although the conventional version love vow is not humorous…
…it is more realistic and tear jerking to touch your bride’s heart!
Sample 1: Your Gratitude
Thank you for giving your heart to me and trusting me with yours.
Thank you for walking beside me and for wanting me at your side.
Thank you for thinking of me and for always staying on my mind.
Thank you for making the smile and for smiling along with me.
Thank you for being who you are and for helping me be me.
Thank you for each day and night, and for always…
I love you.
Sample 2：The Memories
I remember that day.
That’s when we meet each other,
That day is the day that love walked in through my door,
And i found just what I wanted,
But i got so much more,
Love walked in through my door,
And it felt so strange,
Like a long lost friend that hadn’t changed,
Giving me hope again, love walked in,
And that is YOU.
Sample 3: Your true feelings
You have taught me that two people joined together with respect, trust,
and open communication can be far stronger and happier than each could ever be alone.
You are the strength I didn’t know I needed,
and the joy that I didn’t know I lacked.
Today, I choose to spend the rest of my life with you.
I promise to love you for who you are, and for who you are yet to become.
I promise to be patient, and to remember that all things between us are rooted in love.
I promise to nurture your dreams and to help you reach them.
I promise to share my whole heart with you,
and to remember to show you how deeply I care for you,
no matter the challenges that may come our way.
I promise to love you loyally and fiercely
—as long as I shall live.
As you can see, a conventional wedding vow is all about your thought and feelings to your fiancée
So, learn from the wedding vow template above and create a touching and unique one!
3. Lyrics／Quotes from movie－－A BIG CHALLENGE TO HIM
But, on the other hand…
It is a real big challenge that can test the groom’s sincerity…
You know…it is not easy for a man to sing or to put on a play in front of a crowd of people including his father-in-law and mother-in-law…
Not to mention a sappy song.
However, lyrics or quotes are always easy to remember that can avoid making mistakes.
If the lyrics or the quotes are came from your bride’s favourite song or movie…
Its just… so sweet and unforgettable!
Sample 1: ”Dance For You” Beyoncé
“I just wanna show you how much I appreciate you, yes
Wanna show you how much I’m dedicated to you, yes
Wanna show you how much I will forever be true, yes
Wanna show you how much you got your girl feeling good
Wanna show you how much, how much you understood
Wanna show you how much I value what you say
Not only are you loyal, you’re patient with me babe
Wanna show you how much I really care about your heart
Wanna show you how much I hate being apart.”
Sample 2: Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy from “Pride and Prejudice”
You have bewitched me, body and soul,
and I love, I love, I love you.
I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.
Sample 3: Paige and Leo from “The Vow”
I vow to help you love life,
to always hold you with tenderness and to have the patience that love demands,
to speak when words are needed and to share the silence when they are not,
to agree to disagree on red velvet cake,
and to live within the warmth of your heart and always call it home.
I vow to fiercely love you in all your forms, now and forever.
I promise to never forget that this is a once in a lifetime love.
And to always know in the deepest part of my soul that no matter what challenges might carry us apart,
we will always find our way back to each other.
Sample 4: “When I’m Sixty Four” The Beatles
“When I get older, losing my hair, many years from now,
will you still be sending me a valentine, birthday greetings, bottle of wine?
If I’d been out till quarter to three, would you lock the door?
Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I’m sixty-four?
You’ll be older too, and if you say the word, I could stay with you.
I could be handy, mending a fuse when your lights have gone.
You can knit a sweater by the fireside, Sunday mornings go for a ride.
Doing the garden, digging the weeds.
Who could ask for more? …
Give me your answer, fill in a form.
Mine for evermore.”
With these sweet lyrics and quotes…
All you have to do is just sing or play with emotion in order to make your bride pleased and moved!
To “Make” and to Say the Love Vow
4. Make a proof of the love vow
Here is a simple way:
Write down the vow and have your groom sign it after he say it to you!
There are many fancy love vow cards in the market to buy…
and this could save you a lot of time from preparing.
However, if you think it is not special enough…
You can DIY to make it unique and more meaningful!
5. Make it more special—A word puzzle
If you want it to become more special, you can make it a game.
Like a word puzzle:
Have your bridal party draft the vows and leave some blank spaces for your groom to fill in.
This can make the whole process so much funnier.
And it can also test the groom’s patience and sincerity.
Isn’t it really a fun game that can also make it as a proof?
6. Be serious and sincere
Whatever you choose, the funny version, the conventional one or the lyrics…
The most important thing is your sincerity.
Although this love vow is just a part of picking up the bride and not the official one…
…you need to be serious and sincere with that.
There is no doubt that every bride wants her groom to genuinely say the love vow for her…
…to show her the loyalty and love…
and to make it a great memory.
7. Don’t just “say” it
If you are just saying it out without any emotion…
Nobody will be touched by you no matter which version you choose.
What happen if the bridesmaids were not pleased with your performance?
Of course you will be blocked by the door.
Just remember one thing:
Get in the mood before you read it.
Flood her heart with love!
Are you ready to start on your Love Vow now? Are you confident to satisfy your bride now?
Wish all of you can successfully pick your brides up to start the perfect Big Day!
