In different languages
Seven Vows in English, Saat Pheras in Hindi, while some relate it as the Seven Pradakshinas.

When is it performed?
On the Wedding day, the Bride’s Father puts a ring on the Boy’s Finger and then gives his daughter to the boy. This Ritual is known as the Kanyadaan. After the Kanyadaan, the Pheras begin. Amidst chanting of the Vedic Mantras, the couple encircles the Holy fire or Agni seven times.

With every Phera or Round or Parikrama, they make a promise to their Partner. So, the Bride and Groom make Seven Promises.
