Monica provides the perfect sentiment for someone who is marrying their best friend. Although you might want to skip the last bit.

Monica: Chandler, for so long I wondered if I would ever find my prince, my soulmate. Then three years ago, at another wedding, I turned to a friend for comfort. And instead, I found everything that I’d ever been looking for my whole life. And now, here we are, with our future before us — and I only want to spend it with you, my prince, my soulmate, my friend. Unless you don’t want to. You go!

Chandler: Monica, I thought this was going to be the most difficult thing I ever had to do. But when I saw you walking down that aisle I realized how simple it was. I love you. Any surprises that come our way, it’s OK, because I will always love you. You are the person I was meant to spend the rest of my life with. You wanna know if I’m sure? (He leans in and kisses her.)

Marrying your high school sweetheart? David Silver and Donna Martin have you covered.

David: When was it that we fell in love? When we were eighteen? Sixteen? Maybe ten. I don't know, 'cause the truth is, I can't picture a time when I wasn't in love with you. I always knew you were the one that could look into my eyes and see my soul. I don't question your commitment to us. And I know there's nothing we can't work through. And I accept you, as my partner and as my best friend above all others. It's a miracle to find the kind of peace and happiness that you've given me. And in honor of that miracle, I pledge before our family and friends to love and cherish you forever.

Donna: I look at you and I see my best friend. Your energy and your passion inspire me in ways I never thought possible. Your inner beauty is so strong that I no longer fear being myself. I no longer fear at all. I never thought that I could find someone to love that would love me back unconditionally. And then I realized that although we were often apart, you were always with me, and you were my soulmate. You give me purpose when I feel I have none. Without you, my soul would be empty, my heart broken, my being incomplete. I thank God every day that you were brought into my life. And I thank you for loving me.

Leslie's original draft of her vows went on for about 70 pages, but thankfully she decided to just speak from the heart.

Ben: In my time working for the state government, my job sent me to 46 cities in 11 years. I lived in villages with eight people, rural farming communities, college towns. I was sent to every corner of Indiana. And then I came here, and I realized that this whole time I was just wandering around everywhere, just looking for you.

Leslie: The things that you have done for me, to help me, support me, surprise me, to make me happy, go above and beyond what any person deserves. You're all I need. I love you and I like you.

Ben: I love you and I like you.

Derek and Meredith co-wrote their vows on a Post-it note. Simple and sweet, these four lines say it all.

To love each other even when we hate each other.

No running — ever. Nobody walks out no matter what happens.

We’ll take care of each other even when we’re old and smelly and senile.

This is forever.

5. Andy and April, Parks and Recreation

The vows at this surprise wedding were just like April and Andy themselves — weird and hilarious and adorable.

April: I guess I kind of hate most things, but I never really seem to hate you. So I wanna spend the rest of my life with you. Is that cool?

Andy: April, you are the most awesome person I have ever known in my entire life. I vow to protect you from danger. And I don’t care if I have to fight an ultimate fighter, or a bear, or him (points to random guest), or your mom. I would take them down. I’m getting mad right now even telling you! I wanna spend the rest of my life, every minute, with you, and I am the luckiest man in the galaxy.

6. Cory and Topanga, Boy Meets World

There is so much in this world to be unsure of. When you find the person that makes you feel like it all makes sense, you should definitely make sure you hold on to that.

Topanga: I wasn't sure this day would ever come, but you were. I wasn't sure love could survive everything we put it through, but you were. You were always strong and always sure. And now I know I want you to stand beside me for the rest of my life. That's what I'm sure of.

Cory: Ever since I was young I never understood anything about the world, and I never understood anything that happened in my life. The only thing that ever made sense to me was you, and how I felt about you. That's all I've ever known, and that's enough, that's enough for me, for the rest of my life.

7. Bo and Hope, Days of Our Lives

Don't know where to start? Take a cue from soap opera dreamboat Bo Brady and sing your feelings before jumping into some EPIC vows.

Bo: Hope, I know it's taken us a long time to get here. I'm sure you've thought at times that we wouldn't. I know I had my doubts. I never thought I could have somebody in my life that could make me so happy, make me feel so alive. You know how hard it is for me to tell people how I feel about them, especially people I care about. But today, in front of all these people, I have no problem telling you that I love you. 'Cause I want you to know that, and I want them to know it too. Like the archbishop said, I know our lives aren't going to be just sunshine and roses from here on in, but I want you to know I'm gonna try my hardest to keep our love alive because we've got something very special here. Something worth fighting for. I love you, Hope.

Hope: I guess I fell in love the first time I saw you. But it's taken me all this time to realize that what I felt then is nothing compared to how I'm feeling right now. Remember what we said to each other in New Orleans? True love is a gift that God hath given to man alone beneath the heavens. The silver link, the silver tie, which heart to heart, and mind to mind, in body and in soul combined. I was pretty young when you met me. And I get so mad when you call me "little one," but knowing you and loving you has made me grow into a woman. And I am your woman, Bo. Standing here, in front of all these people, I give you my life and all my love, now and for all eternity. Oh, Bo, I love you and I am so proud to be your wife.

Vows don't really have to be long and verbose. Just speak from the heart, and it will always be enough.

Liz: T.J., my heart just pours out to you. You have been so good to me, and for me. I don't know where I'd be without you. I'd be worse off, I know that. You're somethin' else.

T.J.: I love ya.

10. Lena and Stef, The Fosters

Remember to take in the moment. Look at your love and tell them exactly how much you love them.

Lena: Stephanie Marie Foster, you’re a piece of work, but you’re my piece of work. I accept you, every single thing that makes you who you are, from now until the end of time. I love you.

Stef: You’re the person I’ve been waiting for my whole life, and I am so proud to be standing up here, in front of our friends and family, to make sure they know just how lucky I feel to have found you, and just how much I love you.

11. Rhoda and Joe, Rhoda

Not much of a public speaker? You can write something for the officiant to read aloud and then just exchange a quick but heartfelt sentiment.

Rhoda and Joe asked their officiant to read this statement:

"When two people love each other, it's natural that they want to share each other's lives, because love is what matters most. It doesn't solve everything. It doesn't promise everything. It just matters. Now they'd like to say something to each other."

Then they exchanged words that were brief, but lovely.

Joe: Rhoda, let me tell you, nobody in the world is happier than I am right now.

Rhoda: Joe, you know, don't you, whatever it is I've got to give, you've got.

12. David and Darlene, Roseanne

When Darlene Conner married David, whom her parents had taken in and loved as their own son, they used their vows to reflect on what is really important in this world and to honor the marriage that served as an example of love and endurance to them.

David: I, David, promise to always love and respect you, Darlene, fellow traveler on this planet, as we tread lightly and replenish what we have taken from this Earth.


Darlene:
And I, Darlene, promise to love and respect you, David, as we strive not for material possessions, but for contentment and peace of mind. And we know the best way that we can make it is to rely on each other, the way our parents Dan and Roseanne Conner have.

David: No matter how good or bad life has been to them, they always found humor in it. I hope we can do the same.

13. Phoebe and Mike, Friends

In one of the most romantic sitcom weddings of all time, lovable weirdo Phoebe finally gets her well-deserved happy ending.

Phoebe: When I was growing up, I didn't have a normal mom and dad, or a regular family like everybody else, and I always knew that something was missing. But now I'm standing here today, knowing that I have everything I'm ever gonna need. You are my family.

Mike: Phoebe, you are so beautiful. You're so kind, you're so generous, you're so wonderfully weird. Every day with you is an adventure. I can't believe how lucky I am, and I can't wait to share my life with you forever.

Phoebe: Oh wait, I forgot! And, um...I love you. And you have nice eyes.

Mike: I love you too.

Keep calm and marry on!
