Writing Your Wedding Vows

Wedding Vows

If you want to make your ceremony a little more unique and meaningful, you might consider writing your wedding vows. Meeting expectations and putting all the meaning into the promises is not always an easy task. These tips should help you write all the meaning into your wedding vows.

Making Promises

Wedding vows are the promises you will make and keep forevermore. However, instead of thinking about what you will say, think about how you feel. Think about your relationship, why you fell in love, and all the promises you want to keep. Religion and culture might help it take shape. Think about your expectations. Make a list of words that define your relationship. Your list might include respect, cherish and love.

Let the Wedding Vows Take Shape

Create an outline that begins with the reasons this other person has your heart and all the reasons you cannot imagine a life without them in it. You might create a short story without saying too much. You do not want your wedding vows to be too wordy. With that in mind, try to convey your feelings and how you spiraled into an endless abyss of love with them. Think about the journey that keeps you falling deeper every single day. Let it flow into all the promises.

Writing Unique Wedding Vows

You might open with a quote or a story, but try to make your vows your own. The way to make your vows unique is to project your own feelings into your writing. It is okay to include traditions, such as a unity cup with special words about the symbolism it creates. It is okay to include a special reading, poem or a scripture from the bible. Get creative and incorporate your own feelings and thoughts.

Practice Makes Perfect

Even when surrounded by friends and family, you will probably be a little nervous. Iron out the wrinkles and make it flow. Feel comfortable saying your vows. Avoid the feeling of reading, and speak from the heart. When you find your cadence and say it perfectly, you might want to make some edits. For this reason, write your wedding vows a few weeks before your wedding day, allowing time for all the practice and changes.
