Sample wedding vows can be found at many wedding related sites such as TheKnot.com. Some sites also feature vow templates to help a couple write their own vows, such as the one provided on the Hallmark website.
APracticalWedding.com showcases many ideas including vows both for the religious and more secular. For couples looking for vow ideas that are less traditional and more unique, OffbeatBride.com features several articles with vows that include pirate themes, the zombie apocalypse and literary vow poems.
Couples who want to write their own vows can utilize the template at Hallmark.com. This template breaks the vows down into two major parts. The first is a declaration of love and intent. During this time in the vows, the bride and groom express their love for each other and explain how important each of them is to each other. Often during this part the couple explains why they fell in love.
The second part of the vows express promises. These promises are things the couple plan to do for each other. From standing by each other through thick and thin to growing old together, this section of the vows explains what each member of the couple contributes to the relationship.
