Wedding Vows


Funny Wedding Vows

Some choose to take their vows a little less seriously. Read on to see some examples of vows that are a little less solemn than the traditional, or to get ideas for your own.

Here’s an example of one that pokes fun at the financial responsibility aspect of marriage:

“I, Phillip, 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, Amelia, unconditionally, in sickness and in health, till death do us part, even when you feel the need to accessorize with $400 shoes.”

“I, Amelia, promise to love and cherish you, Phillip, for the rest of our lives, even through your love for sports cars, dirt bikes, and Fender guitars.”

If you and your fiancé already have a few inside jokes you may want to slip them in like this example:

“I, Phillip, promise to love you, Amelia, even through your need to listen to girly rock of the 1980s. I will learn to love the Bangles, Cyndi Lauper, Debbie Gibson, and Madonna as much as I love you. I promise for now and forever not to criticize your music choice.”

“I, Amelia, promise to love you, Phillip, forever, even after nights of beans and broccoli.”

Here is something else you can use in a funny vow:

“I, Amelia, promise to love you, Phillip, forever and always from this day forward. I promise to learn how to cook your favorite meals and never criticize your mother. I promise to keep the house relatively clean, except on Lost nights. I will give you full reign of the remote control otherwise. For this is my promise to my one true love and partner for life.”

Funny vows definitely don’t work for all ceremonies. You should only use them if both parties agree that light-hearted humor on this solemn occasion is acceptable.

If these seem too tongue-in-cheek for the ceremony, remember they can always be used at the reception.
