If you are writing your own wedding vows, it can be hard to put into words what you really want to say to the person who means the most to you in your life. Famous love poems often sounds artificial, especially if they were written a few centuries ago. Song lyrics often talk about love, but not necessarily commitment. Fortunately, though, professional writers have written some beautiful vows for TV couples that can provide you with some inspiration! Here are a few famous TV wedding vows:
Friends – Monica and Chandler Wedding
“The One with Monica and Chandler’s Wedding” is a double length episode of the television sitcom Friends. It first aired on May 17, 2001 as the finale of season seven. With the groom’s back and Joey finally there to marry them, Monica and Chandler exchange their vows. We know it is just a TV show, but this one warmed all our hearts.
Monica and Chandler Wedding Vows:
Monica: Chandler, for so long I wondered if I would ever find my prince, my soul mate. Then three years ago, at another wedding I turned to a friend for comfort. And instead, I found everything that I’d ever been looking for my whole life. And now, here we are, with our future before us – and I only want to spend it with you, my prince, my soul mate, my friend. Unless you don’t want to. You go!
Chandler: Monica, I thought this was going to be the most difficult thing I ever had to do. But when I saw you walking down that aisle I realized how simple it was. I love you. Any surprises that come our way, it’s okay, because I will always love you. You are the person I was meant to spend the rest of my life with. You wanna know if I’m sure? (He leans in and kisses her.)
Scrubs – Carla and Turk Wedding
Scrubs – Carla and Turk Vows:
Carla: I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my life, but you’ve managed to erase them all, because each and every one of them has led me to you.
Turk: When I look into your eyes, I see the future. I see kids, I see minivans…you name it, I see it. The weird thing is, though, as long as I see your smile, none of that stuff scares me.
Gray’s Anatomy: Burke’s and Christina’s Wedding
Gray’s Anatomy: Burke’s and Christina’s Wedding Vows
Burke: Cristina, I could promise to hold you and to cherish you. I could promise to be there in sickness and in health. I could say ‘til death do us part, but I won’t. Those vows are for optimistic couples, the ones full of hope, and I don’t stand here on my wedding day optimistic or full of hope. I am not optimistic, I am not hopeful. I am sure, I am steady, and I know that I’m a heart man. I take them apart, put them back together, I hold them in my hands. I am a heart man.
So this I am sure, you are my partner, my lover, my very best friend. My heart beats for you. And this day, the day of our wedding, I promise you this… I promise you to lay my heart in the palm of your hands. I promise you me.
