Wedding Ceremony / Renewal Of Vows – Sample

Vow # 1
Happiness in marriage is not something that just happens. A good marriage must be created. In marriage the little things are the big things. It is never being too old to hold hands. It is remembering to say “I love you” at least once a day. It is never going to sleep angry. It is at no time taking the other for granted; the courtship should continue through the years. It is standing together facing the world. It is doing things for each other, not in the attitude of duty, but in the spirit of joy. It is not looking for perfection in each other. It is flexibility and patience, understanding and a sense of humor. It is having the capacity to forgive and forget. It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow old. It is a common search for the good and the beautiful. It is not only marrying the right partner, it is being the right partner.

Vow # 2
……, do you want to renew your vows and again pledge your love and life to ….. Do you promise to love and to cherish for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, from this day forward? ……, do you want to renew your vows and again pledge your love and life to …… Do you promise to love and to cherish for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, from this day forward? For all the years to come, love, happiness and health shall guide you every day…….: you may kiss your bride.

Vow # 3: Wedding Vow in Dhivehi


Translation of the Dhivehi Vows:
The wedding couple should share every minute of life together, during the time of happiness and sadness, ease and difficulties, frustration and depression. Marital connection is the foundation stones of two person’s lives. Over that they build every second of their life, building up of a planned family to guide their children in the proper path until they’ve matured and step on their own feet. Once two people of opposite sex are united by marriage, they are responsible to each other for anything and everything, at any time and every time, anywhere and everywhere. Under no circumstance, should one disobey or disregard the other. Even in time of disagreement, a peaceful solution should be the only answer. As long as both are going according to your religion, tradition and customs of your society and abiding by the laws of the society, no one should disobey and disregard the other. Loyalty, honesty and taking care is all about a successful life together. No one should anyhow, anytime be dishonest or disloyal to another. Mutual understanding and trust between both will bind the marriage together forever. In the name of Almighty and most merciful God and in the witness of life and non-life creatures in and around this scene, staff of Veligandu Island Resort & Spa and all the people present here may I ask you:…., do you …as your wedded wife? …do you accept …as your wedded husband? As a sign of your matrimony between each other, the groom may put the ring on the bride’s finger and the bride may put the ring on the groom’s finger. I now proclaim ….as Man and Wife Now, you may kiss the bride.

Vow #4
Groom & Bride prepare their own Vows.
