Ring Exchange:


Take some time to start writing your wedding ring speech. It doesn't have to be all neat and coherent at first. Put your scattered thoughts on paper, and things will fall in place.


Perhaps start by thinking about your partner. Think of why you love them. Ask yourself why you're marrying your partner. What is it about them that excites you? What is the greatest promise you ever want to make to your partner? Do you have sweet times you've had? Draw inspiration from them.

Choose your style:


This is an important step to take with your partner. Consult them so that both of you are on the same page. What tone do you want to set for the wedding ring speech? Romantic, funny, or emotional? In what form do you want to say your ring ceremony wording? A poem, speech or quote?


Will there be problems with word usage? Consult your partner to establish words you don't agree on. Honour, obey, for better or worse? You should tackle this early enough to avoid conflicts. How about the length of the ring vows? You want it short and concise or lengthy?

How about wedding ring ceremony ideas? Modern, secular, agnostic, or traditional wedding ring vows? This is a thing to decide between you and your partner.”


Ring exchange wording can be romantic, funny, traditional or secular. 

Modern ring vows:


“I give you this ring to wear with love and joy. As a ring has no end, neither shall my love for you. I choose you to be my (wife/husband) this day and forevermore.”
