4 Tips To Help Write Personal Wedding Vows
A couple's wedding is one of the most memorable, important, and high points in an individual’s life. At a time when a couple want to make the ultimate commitment to spend the rest of their lives together, the desire to have personalised vows is certainly understandable. This is one of the most unique and special days in a person’s life, so if you want to write your own personal wedding vows, then we hope that these tips help.
Writing your own vows can seem difficult. There is always pressure on the wedding day but by planning you can feel confident when you eventually say your vows in front of your significant other and guests. Also always remember that you still have the option to go for the traditional vows and personalise them with a few of your own words if you are feeling any pressure. Just follow a few basic tips, and this will help you on your way to writing the personalised vows that your future spouse deserves!
1. Write from the heart. Your wedding day represents the epitome of love
between you and your future spouse. Anything you write should be honest and genuine because that is what will really make your words special and meaningful.
2. Honesty. If you are a poet, great. Keep in mind, though, that in the end words are just words. Your wedding vows do not have to be an amazing classic piece of literature—they need to be an honest display of your feelings for the other person. Don’t use long poetical words if all it does is put distance between your words and your feelings.
3. Brainstorm. Before you sit down to write everything, make a list of the things about your spouse that you absolutely love about your spouse, then make a list of the commitments you want to make. Figure out what parts of those lists you really want to include (keep in mind the vows are read in front of families and friends) and keep those.
4. Short and Sweet. It doesn’t take many words or a lot of time to make your feelings known to everyone present. A lot can be said in a really short time, so don’t feel like you must make the vows any longer than they naturally sound.
Follow these four tips, and they will hopefully give you some help to start to write some great wedding vows that your spouse will love. Happy writing!
