Victor’s Wedding Vows From Corpse Bride

Whether you were Team Victoria or Team Emily, we can all agree that Victor’s vows in the spooky Victorian-era animated classic ‘Corpse Bride’ were to die for. Years later, and we still swoon every time we hear them.

 


“With this hand, I will lift your sorrows.

Your cup will never empty, for I will be your wine.

With this candle, I will light your way in darkness.

With this ring, I ask you to be mine.”

(Victor’s vows from the 2005 masterpiece, Corpse Bride)

 


They’re simple, they’re sweet, they rhyme poetically without being over the top, and they capture all of our best intentions as we enter into marriage: To be a source of happiness and comfort to the one we love, to provide stability for our sweetheart each day, and to commit to the wonderful unknown of the years ahead. 

 

And we love the way Victor adds the transition to a unity candle ceremony during the traditional exchange of vows in such a seamless way. 

 

Ask your wedding officiant to add these heartfelt vows to a simple wedding script as an easy way to personalize your wedding ceremony! 

 

Visit our Wedding Ceremony Script Library for sample wedding scripts and templates to use as inspiration.

 

Still looking for the right wedding officiant? Ask a friend or family member to get ordained to marry you.

Choose a wedding officiant that makes you feel happy and at ease... not this guy.

 


Practice your wedding vows before the big day 

 

Practice is a great idea! The more practice you have before the ceremony, the more confident you’ll feel and the smoother things will go. Practice your written vows with your wedding officiant one on one, with a trusted friend, or by yourself in front of the mirror. Pay attention to how fast you're speaking, and don’t forget to breathe.

 

Give a copy of your wedding vows to your wedding officiant, so that there will be a backup copy on hand the day of your wedding.

Our last piece of advice? 

 

If you take practice tips from Victor, and decide to walk through a dark forest at night reciting each line out loud as creatures scurry and squeak in the shadows, just be careful where you place the ring…or you might end up with a Corpse Bride of your own!
