Wedding is a consecrated event for two individuals who have taken a solemn promise to lead their lives together. Also referred to as marriage, wedding may result from courtship, or it can be arranged as well. Wedding Vows refer to the promises that couples make to each other during a wedding ceremony. But this literal explanation is far from absolute. Marriage vows mean a lot in the context of two lives. They can set your marriage on the right track for the rest of your lives. If uttered honestly and truthfully, they can truly shower bliss upon your married life. There are Religious Wedding Vows as well as secular ones. Religious Wedding Vows or religious marriage vows are mainly derived from the Catholic tradition of marriage. Most of the non-secular wedding vows follow the Catholic trend in which the couples say to each other, To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness or in health, to love and to cherish `till death do us part.
Wedding vows, an integral part of any nuptial ceremony, set a perfectly romantic atmosphere not just for the couple marrying, but also for the guests present there. Your wedding vows determine the spirit of your marriage. Vows taken from the innermost core of your heart can make your wedding meaningful, romantic and exclusively your own. On the other hand, vows that do not reflect your genuine feelings for your beloved can botch up your wedding and set an wrong tone for your marriage. Different schools of Religious Wedding Vows incorporate Jewish wedding vows, Hindu wedding vows, Quaker wedding vows and so on.
Vows can be memorized or written declarations. The most beautiful and touching of them allude to life, love, partnership, responsibility and individuality.
