Renewal of Wedding Vows Ceremony
Greeting / Welcoming Words
Love and relationships are what life is about. We have come here joyfully to celebrate the decision GROOM and BRIDE made ___ years ago to share their love by joining in marriage.
Good relationships never stop growing. Like fine wine, they get better with age. GROOM and BRIDE, you have now been married ____ years and through all the years of your journey together, you have now come to this beautiful setting, so that you could renew your vow and commitment of love for each other.
No marriage is perfect. As you continue in this union, you already know that it will continue to take a lot of love and work to keep your relationship an ongoing success.
As you continue to travel on your journey together, always remember to:
Let your love be stronger than your anger.
Learn the wisdom of compromise, for it is better to bend than to break.
Believe the best of your beloved rather than the worst.
Confide in your partner and ask for help when you need it.
Remember that true friendship is the basis for any lasting relationship.
Give your spouse the same courtesies and kindnesses you bestow on your friends.
And… say “I love you” every day.
