Vow Renewal Ceremony Script for Wedding Anniversary

A short & sweet vow renewal ceremony script with reaffirmation of traditional marriage vows to celebrate an anniversary or family milestone, recognition of child / children, and a second exchange of wedding rings or gifts. Use this original script as is, or as a simple template and outline from which to create a custom vow renewal script. Written by ordained AMM Minister Dyanna Volek.

This original marriage vow renewal script is written by AMM Minister Dyanna Volek to celebrate a couple's continuing love and commitment on the anniversary of their wedding day.

 

This script is perfectly suited to an intimate vow renewal ceremony, with only the officiant, the couple, and a few others attending, but can be easily modified for a large gathering of friends and family.

PROCESSION / PROCESSIONAL

  • Ceremony begins.

INVOCATION

  • This script is designed for a private renewal and does not include a traditional opening / welcome. to modify this section for a larger gathering, add a greeting to guests and any housekeeping announcements.

Officiant to the couple

(Partner A) and (Partner B), when you first joined hands and hearts in marriage more than (Number of Years) years ago, you did not know where life would take you. You promised to love, honor, and cherish one another through all things.

Life has surely brought you both wonderful blessings and difficult challenges over the years. But here you are today, having fulfilled the vows and promises you each made on your wedding day. 

RECOGNITION OF CHILDREN

  • This portion of the ceremony is optional. It is designed for couples who have & wish to acknowledge children, but can be modified to recognize other people or pets, instead

Officiant to the couple and the reception

Today as (Partner A) and (Partner B) re-seal their commitment to each other with the exchange of rings, they also promise their continued commitment to their (child / children), (Name of Child / Children).

We recognize the significant role that (Child / Children) plays in the marriage we celebrate today. You are a family drawn together by love and held together by devotion.

VOW RENEWAL / exchange of vows 

  • This exchange of vows can be easily modified by substituting the couple's original vows or personalized custom vows. 

Officiant to the couple

As you celebrate here today, and as you reflect back over all the years as (husband and wife / spouses ), do you now wish to reaffirm the vows you took more than (Number of Years) years ago? 

Partner A and Partner B

We do.

Please face each other and join hands.

  • Partner A and Partner B turn and hold hands.

I will

Partner B

RINGS EXCHANGE

  • If the couple wants to re-exchange their original rings, ask them to take the rings off before the ceremony so that they can be easily exchanged at this time. Some couples may want to exchange new rings, or other meaningful gifts instead of rings.

Officiant to the couple

(Partner A) and (Partner B), on your wedding day you exchanged rings as a symbol of the never-ending circle that symbolizes the eternal quality of unending strength and unending love. May you always wear your rings as a reminder of your wedding vows to each other, and your commitment to continue to live in unity, love, and happiness.

To remind you of that commitment made on your wedding day, you will now renew your pledge.

Officiant to Partner A

(Partner A), please place your gift of a ring on (Partner B's) hand and repeat after me:

I gave you this ring,

as a symbol of my love,

and today I renew my pledge

to share my life’s journey with you

and to continue to love you

today, tomorrow, and always.

  • Partner A repeats each line in turn.


Officiant to Partner B

(Partner B), please place your gift of a ring on (Partner A's) hand and repeat after me:

I gave you this ring,

as a symbol of my love,

and today I renew my pledge

to share my life’s journey with you

and to continue to love you

today, tomorrow, and always.

  • Partner b repeats each line in turn.

PRONOUNCEMENT

Officiant to the Couple

(Partner A) and (Partner B), today you have renewed the promises and vows you made to each other on your wedding day. You have symbolized the renewal of the marriage union by the joining of hands, the restating of vows, and the re-exchange of rings.

It is with pleasure that I conclude this ceremony, renewing the vows of marriage that joined you and that forever bind you as a couple.

Please celebrate with a sign of affection…

You may now kiss your spouse for life!
