We are exchanging vows and then having a small ring exchange ceremony as part of our wedding ceremony.I am really having a hard time finding some wording that my fiance and I like that isn't so traditional and I have no idea how to make our own.Anyone know a good site or something I can possible look at to maybe put something together???

Here is what we are saying to each other when we exchange rings:

I give you this ring as a symbol of my love for you. Let it be a reminder that I am always by your side and that I will always be a faithful partner to you. As a ring has no end, neither shall my love for you. I choose you to be my wife/husband this day and forevermore.

We took different parts of different vows and then added some of our own. There are a ton of sites out there with examples. Just google "ring exchange wording"

Have you asked your Officiant? Generally they will have sample scripts for you to use or get idea's from

Hi Tami -- I happen to love the ring vows adapted from ILLUMINATA by Marianne Williamson. Go to http://www.topweddingsites.com/ceremony.html
and scroll down to the section by Reverend Susanna Stefanachi Macomb. Expand this section. What I like is Selection 4. Additionally, Reverend Susanna has a fantastic book entitled, "Joining Hands and Hearts." The book has other adaptations of Illuminata. In my opinion, this book is a "must have," for any bride trying to put a ceremony together. It is an excellent reference book. I hope this helps.

Talk to your Officiant; he/she should have some suggestions for you. Here are few of the suggestions I give to my couple's:

“I give you this ring as a token that I shall love you, in all times, in all places, and in all ways, forever.”

“With this ring I thee wed, And with it, I give you all the treasures of my mind, heart, and hands”

”I hope that you will wear this ring as a reminder that I love you every single day of your life.”

“As this ring encircles your finger, from this day forward, so will my love forever encircle you. Wear this ring as a symbol of my love.”

“I (Name) give you, (NAME) this ring as a symbol of my constant
respect and love for you.”
