WEDDING VOW WITH 
BRIDE & GROOM 
LEI EXCHANGE SUGGESTION


The lei exchange is a nice way to add the Hawaiian tradition of exchanging leis to your wedding. The lei exchange symbolizes the love exchanged by the bride and groom. For the lei exchange ceremony the Bride & Groom exchange leis during the first few minutes of the ceremony. You can do it a few ways:
1) The bride starts off wearing the grooms lei and the groom starts off wearing the bride's lei.
2) Have flower girls carry the leis and present them to the bride and groom during the ceremony.

WEDDING CEREMONY

On behalf of Groom’s Name and Bride’s Name I would like to welcome you to this joyous celebration. The Hawaiian word for love is Aloha. Today we’ve come together to celebrate the special Aloha that exists between Groom’s Name and Bride’s Name and their desire to make their Aloha eternal through the commitment marriage. In Hawaii the giving of a lei is an expression of Aloha. Groom’s Name and Bride’s Name will exchange leis as a symbol of their Aloha for one another. When two people promise with Aloha in their hearts to share the adventure of life, it is a beautiful moment that they and all of us who are present today will always remember.

Groom’s Name and Bride’s Name you are entering into marriage because you want to be together. You are marrying because you know you will grow more in happiness and Aloha more fully as life-mates. You will belong entirely to each other, one in mind, one in heart, and in all things. No greater blessing of happiness can come to you than to have this devoted Aloha, which you now publicly avow. Keep this understanding of your marriage alive in the days ahead. May your Aloha continuously grow truer and more wonderful with each day you enjoy together.

Groom’s Name and Bride’s Name please hold hands and look into each others eyes.

Do you Groom’s Name, take Bride’s Name, to be your wife. To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness, in health, to cherish with devoted love and faithfulness 'till death do you part.
(I Do.)

Do you Bride’s Name, take, Groom’s Name to be your husband. To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness, in health, to cherish with devoted love and faithfulness 'till death do you part.

Please take out the wedding rings. Your wedding rings are a symbol of your eternal Aloha for one another and commitment to your marriage. Please join hands and look deeply into each others eyes. Groom’s Name please place the ring on Bride’s Name the ring finger of the left hand and repeat after me.

(Repeat after official):  With this ring/ I, Groom’s Name, pledge to thee Bride’s Name /to have and to hold from this day forward/ for better, for worse/ for richer for poorer/ in sickness and in health/ to love and to cherish/ always and forever/ till death us do part./

Bride’s Name please place the ring on Groom’s Name ring finger on his left hand and repeat after me.

(Repeat after official):  With this ring/ I, Bride’s Name, pledge to thee Groom’s Name /to have and to hold from this day forward/ for better, for worse/ for richer for poorer/ in sickness and in health/ to love and to cherish/ always and forever/ till death us do part./

Bride’s Name and Groom’s Name you have pledged your eternal Aloha to one another and your commitment to live together faithfully in lawful wedlock. By the authority vested in me by the laws of the State of State Name , I pronounce you husband and wife. Groom’s Name, you may kiss your bride!  With honor I proudly announce for the first time Mr. & Mrs. Last Name.
