If you’re planning to exchange rings with your spouse, you may want to share a ring statement. A ring statement is usually a short line that you say as you exchange rings to note the symbolism of the ring. It’s a small part of the wedding ceremony, but it can be filled with a lot of meaning. And just like every part of the ceremony, your ring statement should resonate with you and your partner.

Check out eight ring statement options below.
