Do you know what to say to your spouse when you exchange the ring? If you don’t, do not fret, you can write anything a poem, a quote or read a passage to declare your love when you exchange the rings at your wedding ceremony. If you are still unsure of what to say, here are some inspiration.
From this day forward,
You shall not walk alone.
My heart will be your shelter,
And my arms will be your home
I (name), I give you this ring
This band of gold
To love you always
To have and to hold
I give you my love
Precious and true
You know that my heart
Is only for you.
Groom : This ring is my precious gift to you, as a sign that from this day forward you shall be surrounded and encircled by my love.
Bride : This ring is a token of my endless and abiding love. Just as this circle is without end, my love for you is eternal.
Response: I gladly accept this ring and will wear it always as a sign of my love for you.
The fitting of this ring with its unending circle,
symbolises my everlasting love for you.
The placing of this ring on your finger,
is the fulfillment of my dreams,
to have you as my friend,
my love, my husband/ wife,
to live as one forever.
I promise to love, respect and honour you
I will always be there for you, with you, beside you
Let this ring be a symbol of our love,
may it represent our today, our tomorrows,
our future & our past.
As I have given you my hands to hold,
so I give you my life to keep.
I love you now until I die.
For I must love because I live
And life in me is what you give.
This is the point in the ceremony where we usually talk about the wedding bands being a perfect circle, with no beginning and no end. But we all know that these rings do have a beginning. Rock is dug up from the earth. Metal is liquefied in a furnace at a thousand degrees, then molded, cooled, and painstakingly polished. Something beautiful is made from raw elements. Love is like that. It's hot, dirty work. It comes from humble beginnings, made by imperfect beings. It's the process of making something beautiful where there was once nothing at all. This ring is my promise to accept your imperfections and recognize your beauty.
