I give you this ring
as a symbol of my love and faithfulness.
As I place it on your finger,
I commit my heart and soul to you.
This is one of my all time favorite statements for the ring exchange ceremony. It's sweet and romantic and evokes a certain emotion of endless love and commitment.
There are so many options for choosing the right words to recite as you place the ring on your beloveds finger - you can search the internet, draw from poetry or create your own personal statement. Whichever you chose make sure the actual act of exchanging the rings is smooth and effortless.
As you place the ring on your loved one's finger, place it half way on and then recite the words, then place it the rest of the way on. This way you remain holding their hand for the entire process.
Look into their eyes as your saying the words - let them see your sparkle.
Lastly, if the ring gets stuck at the knuckle leave it where it lays and let the other person place it the rest of the way on - this way your not "shoving" the ring on their finger.
I hope these few tips help to create a magical wedding day for you.
