Witchy Handfasting Vows to Cast a Spooky Love Spell 


“Heart bound to heart, 
and soul bound to soul - 
I am my own but also yours. 


Our union grows of kindness and caring, 
Of trust well-deserved 
and love unerring.


Heart bound to heart, 
and soul to soul bound - 
This love is a home of our own.”

In this world and next…


“Our love, even in the dark of night, lights my every step. To my last luminescent breath, in this world and next, I am yours and only yours, eternally.”



Strange and Unusual…


“I vow to cherish you from bones to breath, spirit to flesh, in this world and next. To stand beside you as your (husband, wife, spouse), lover, and friend as we build a “strange and unusual,” and beautiful, life together.” 


*Reference to Beetlejuice (1988)

Classic Wedding Vows with Seasonal Charm


“Today, I give you my heart to hold and my life to keep
I take you as my partner in life and with this promise:
I will support you and encourage you, during the good times, and the trying times.
I will laugh with you, and cry with you, 
And love you faithfully, for all the days and seasons ahead of us both.”

Love at First Bite… 


“_______, “I have crossed oceans of time to find you.” I believe in destiny because of you, and I know that now that the “luckiest man who walks on this earth is the one who finds... true love.” I’ve found it in you. I promise to listen to you, to trust you, to respect you, to laugh with you, as your (wife / husband / spouse) and friend. “You are my love and my life always.”

“With this hand, I will lift your sorrows.
Your cup will never empty, for I will be your wine.

Meant to Be with the King of Halloweentown…


“My dearest friend, if you don’t mind, 
I’d like to join you by your side, 
Where we can gaze into the stars, 
And sit together, 
Now and forever,
For it is plain as anyone can see, 
We’re simply meant to be.”
