For LDS couples, a ring ceremony is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate their marriage with family and friends of different faiths.
However, it can be difficult to know what to say during the ceremony. LDS couples are asked not to exchange vows to ensure nothing detracts from the sacred religious sealing inside the temple.
Finding a way to break from traditional wedding vows while still sharing the abundance of love you have for each other may seem overwhelming. That is why we have created three different examples to inspire you. These examples of LDS ring ceremony wording may be copied directly, edited, or added upon.
LDS Ring Ceremony Wording #1 – A Love Like the Stars
As I give you this ring, I look back on memories more precious to me than the stars, each one guiding me to this day. Life was darker without you. I didn’t realize just how dark until you appeared, the many evidences of your tender, patient love slowly illuminating my way until I was dazzled.
I look forward to honoring the covenants we have made to each other and to God in the Holy Temple. May this ring be a symbol of my commitment to you and the eternal nature of our marriage, which I know will last much longer than the stars.
LDS Ring Ceremony Wording #2 – I Believe
I believe in you. I believe in your goodness, your strength, and your faith. I believe in who I can become with you at my side. I love you, wholly and completely, as you are. With the aid and promises of heaven, I believe in our glorious future.
Today, I give you this ring as a symbol of my belief in the eternal nature of our love and our marriage.
LDS Ring Ceremony Wording #3 – Adventurous Love
Life is an adventure! I am grateful to have found a partner to climb dizzying heights, explore unfathomable depths, and cross stormy seas with. Together, we are starting a journey of new and eternally significant experiences. I cannot wait to see how our story continues to unfold.
This ring I place on your hand symbolizes the never-ending excitement have to wake up each day and discover our adventure.
