I think it starts, I carry your heart in my heart. I’m never without it. Anywhere I go, you go. I’m probably messing the whole thing up, but I think the end goes, and this is the wonder that keeps the stars apart. I carry your heart. I carry it in my heart.

I always knew you were the one that could look into my eyes and see my soul. I don’t question your commitment to us and I know there’s nothing that we can’t work through. And I accept you as my partner and as my best friend above all others. It’s a miracle to find the kind of peace and happiness that you’ve given me, and in honor of that miracle, I pledge before our family and friends to love and to cherish you forever.
Donna: I look at you and I see my best friend. Your energy and your passion inspire me in ways I never thought possible. Your inner beauty is so strong that I no longer fear being myself. I no longer fear at all. I never thought that I could find someone to love that would love me back unconditionally. And then I realized that although we are often apart, you are always with me, that you are my soulmate. You give me purpose when I feel I have none. Without you my soul would be empty, my heart broken, my being incomplete. I thank God every day that you were brought into my life, and I thank you for loving me.

“I love you. Very simple, very truly. You’re the epitome of every attribute and quality I’ve ever looked for in another person… I can’t stand next to you without wanting to hold you. I can’t look into your eyes without feeling that longing you only read about in trashy romance novels. I can’t talk to you without wanting to express my love for everything you are… I’ve never felt this before, and I like who I am because of it… There isn’t another soul on this… planet who’s ever made me half the person I am when I’m with you… I’m forever changed because of who you are and what you’ve meant to me.”
2. The Notebook
“Poets often describe love as an emotion that we can’t control, one that overwhelms logic and common sense. That’s what it’s like for me. I didn’t plan on falling in love with you, and I doubt that you planned on falling in love with me. But once we met, it was clear that neither of us could control what was happening to us. We fell in love, despite our differences, and once we did, something rare and beautiful was created. For me, love like that has happened only once, and that’s why every minute we spent together has been seared in my memory. I’ll never forget a single moment of it.”
1. Twilight: Bella & Edward
Edward: Bella, from the moment I saw you walk up to my station in Biology, you challenged me. You challenged me to be stronger, to be a better version of myself. You challenged me to have faith, in God, in me, and in us. You challenged me to care, to be happy. Most of all, you challenged me to keep you alive. I intend to keep pursuing these challenges. With your challenges and your very existence, you have changed me forever. So I promise my heart, soul, and body to you. I, Edward Cullen, take you, Isabella Swan, to be my lawfully wedded wife, my constant friend, my faithful partner, my love from this day forward. In the presence of God, our family and friends, I offer you my solemn vow to be your faithful partner in sickness and in health, and in joy as well as in sorrow. I promise to love you unconditionally, to support you in everything, to honor and respect you, to laugh with you and cry with you, and to cherish you for as long as we both shall live.
Bella: When I first learned I was going to write my own vows, I panicked. I looked at the paper for hours, no words coming to mind. For in truth, there is no way to describe the way I feel about you. From the moment I met you, I was changed. For the first time, I wanted someone’s attention on me. Only yours, though. The first thing I noticed about you was your amazing good looks and your striking eyes. But it was your kindness, your attentiveness, your sincerity, and your ability to keep saving me from disaster time and time again, that made me fall in love with you. Although that is a poor way of saying it. Because there are no words that encompass the way I feel about you. I give you my body, heart, and soul. I have no use for them anyway without you. I, Isabella Marie Swan, take you Edward Anthony Masen Cullen to be my beloved husband, to have and to hold you, to honor you, to treasure you, to be at your side in sorrow and in joy, in good times, and in the bad, and to love and cherish you always. I promise you this, from my heart, for all of the days of our lives.
From funny to sentimental, these wedding vows from movies should inspire you even through writer’s block. Whether traditional or non traditional wedding vows, you’ll find something to suit your big day.
