When you get married, there’s a part of the ceremony which involves you and your soon to be spouse giving your wedding vows to each other. This is usually the part of the wedding where you declare that you’re going to stay with each other forever. Writing these vows is a part of every wedding, but not everyone is entirely sure how best to do it. To try and remedy this, we’re taking a look at a few tips for actually writing your wedding vows.
When it comes to writing out your vows, there’s usually a list of things you should and should not include. There are loads of vows out there available for you to look at, just in case you need some inspiration for what to say or how to word a particular feeling. Of course, there’s no merit to copying what another person has said, because each vow will be unique to you, but you can alter a metaphor you like to suit the vows you’re writing or take inspiration from an individual quote to use for your vows.
When we say talk with your significant other, we mean this in the sense of sorting out the logistics of the wedding vows. Make sure you agree on a tone and a format for the vows before you begin writing them. Decide beforehand if you want the vows to be humorous, or heartfelt. Do you want jokes included, or would you rather it were serious? Communication is key and will ensure that you both deliver vows you’re happy with.
This is your wedding day. You’re hopefully marrying the person you’re going to spend the rest of your life with. It is therefore perfectly acceptable to allow your heart to decide what you say to the other person as you look them in the eye on what should be the happiest day of your lives. Hold nothing back, and tell them exactly how incredible they make you feel. The very best vows are often the ones where there are no limits on how romantic you can be. If you’d move heaven and earth for the person you love, then tell them. Make them feel as amazing as they make you feel, and you’ll have a wedding to remember.
Overall, these are just a few tips for writing your wedding vows. When it comes to the vows you’re going to make for another person, it’s all about what comes from within you. You should say whatever you want to say because this is an important day. Your significant other deserves to know exactly how they make you feel because you’re going to spend the rest of your lives together, and there’s nothing more precious than making your wedding day go down without a hitch. Express yourself, don’t hold back, and make your partner feel like the only person in the world that matters.
