Wedding Ring Vows
Following on from last week’s post about Wedding rings and where to get them made in Mallorca! (Diego Nebot) I wanted to return to my original idea which was to write about the words you use to say your wedding ring vows….
Wedding ceremonies whilst individual to each and every couple do tend to follow are similar format (I have written about this in a previous blog “Your perfect wedding ceremony“) But after the introduction and homily maybe a reading from a guest, the ceremony tends to move on to the actual saying of your vows to each other, Generally it is nice to say your “I do’s” first and this is followed by the giving and receiving of wedding rings.
Wedding rings are worn as an outward illustration to the world that you are married… but to me they are far more than that.
They are a symbol of the love you share, they are a constant reminder that your marriage is a partnership, because although you may only wear one ring, each of the rings essentially belongs to you both. No matter how far apart you may be from each during your marriage, the wedding ring on your finger is a constant reminder that you said vows and made promises to each other on your wedding day…. And that your husband or wife will always have your back! Over the years you will find that just a touch of your ring will give you strength or comfort when you need it and a smile when you remember the day you first said your vows and put the ring on your finger. It really is a continual reminder of the love you both share.
So, the vows you say to each other as you exchange your rings are equally as important as the “I do’s”.
Here are a few examples;
“John, I give you this ring, that you may wear it, as a reminder of my love for you”
“Claire, I give you this ring, as a symbol of my love, affection and respect, now and always”
But one of my preferred ways is for you to hold your rings in your hands as you say your vows to each other at the same time…. It may sound rather strange, but it really gives you both the opportunity to concentrate on the precious rings you are holding and fully concentrate on each other without fumbling with rings! There is another slightly less romantic reason that is purely logistical too…. that is; it gives me the opportunity to move out of the way when the time comes for you to actually put your rings on. So, you get some great photos without me smiling like a Cheshire cat in the back ground.
My Heart is in this ring,
My love is in this ring,
I promise you my unconditional love,
And give you my unwavering trust,
When you look at this ring,
Remember that I love you always,
Special thank you to Aimeekphotography for the beautiful photos
