Unique and Meaningful Vows
Writing your own wedding vows need not be a daunting task. Begin by thinking of how you can individualize your exchange with words straight from the heart.
You may want to start thinking about your vows up to a year before the wedding. Consider what is unique and special about your loved one and your relationship together.
The actual writing of the vows should be done no later than one month prior to the ceremony. Give yourself time to read and re-read your script, changing what doesn’t feel just right. Incorporate various aspects of your relationship – the funny, the romantic, and the sentimental.
Now, lets be sure here that the words do not have to be traditional wedding vows. Evoking your own special thoughts will become your unique and meaningful wedding vows. You want your words to express your commitment to your future life partner, so make sure your vows reflect how you truly mean to live in this relationship. Perhaps include previously authored literary passages, consider quoting a romantic poem, or lyrics from a special song. Remember the significance of this occasion and make this momentous.
Keep your speech respectful and heartfelt.
Have your vows printed on a small card you can keep in a pocket or give to your attendant. You don’t want the excitement of the day to drive all your beautiful thoughts out of your head. The words you exchange today will be the words you live by in your new life together.
