The exchanging of rings is a small part of your ceremony but it can be filled with a lot of meaning.
Your celebrant might say a statement while you each place the ring on:
"As a symbol of your passionate and generous love for (name), please place the ring on (name)’s finger. Each time you look at this ring, I encourage you to remember this day and the vows that you have made to each other."
Or you might say a statement to one another:
"I give you this ring to wear each day as a reminder of my love for you."

"With this ring, I gladly marry you and join my life to yours forevermore."
"I give you this ring as a symbol of my love and commitment to you."
"I give you this ring as a reminder that I will love, honour, and cherish you in all times, in all places, and in all ways."
"As I give you this ring, I give you my hand and heart to keep."
"With this ring I wed you, my friend, my lover, my partner in life. I will love you always."
"I give you this ring in celebration of my love for you, and as a pledge to honour you and grow with you for the whole of our life together."
"I give you this ring as I give you my love, exclusively and eternally."
"You are the love of my life, and you are my best friend. With this ring I marry you."
"I give you this ring, as a symbol of our marriage, for today and tomorrow, and for all the days to come. Please wear it as a sign of what we have promised and done today."
"I give you this ring as a symbol of my love and commitment and to remind you how precious you are to me, and that I promise to love you forever."
I give you this ring as a sign of our marriage. With all that I am, I honour you. All that I have, I give to you. And all of my dreams, I share with you."
