Groom Wedding Speech
How to write a Groom Wedding speech.
Basics of a Wedding Vows
Wedding vows are a bit like a wedding speech. They are a very personal speech from the bride to the groom. They are also a promise and somewhat of a contract. Also involved are any witnesses which are typically best man, maid of honor, groomsman and bridesmaids along with family. Most traditional weddings are also witnessing their agreement and commitment before God.
On the page Speech Basics we discussed and look at who the audience is. Obviously your primary audience is now going to the person you are about to wed with a side audience of your witnesses.
Keep in mind these are vows. These are promises. This is your marriage contract. If you want to mess around and make them a joke you need to consider what you are joking about. You are not here to entertain, but to make a lifetime promise to you future mate.
The most traditional vow I know is:
I, (your name), take you (their name), to be my loving (wife/husband), to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to honor; from this day forward until death do us part.
Being the traditional guy I am, these were my actual vows. There are many variations to how you give your vows and promises. Just keep in mind why and what you are promising. Finally, it is recommended that you memorize your vows. I can hear some sighs out there. Think about it. These are the promises you will keep until death do you part. Any couple off fools can make a promise, but it takes love and commitment to live those promises. Given how important these promises are, you should know them by memory and live them every day.
Good Luck and here is wishing you a fantastic future in your new union.
