Wedding vows are more than just words – they are the very foundation upon which you will want to build your marriage once the wedding is over. Thus, choosing to write your own wedding vows is a natural decision for a lot of couples.
How do you do this? How do you write your own wedding vows? We have gathered some of the best tips when it comes to this so make sure to read on if you want to find out more.
- Don’t be afraid to write what you feel. Yes, a white sheet of paper can be intimidating indeed. But you should not be afraid of it. Sit down, think of the person you love and write the first thoughts that come to your head. Write for 5-10 minutes and read what you have written. Clean it up by using and polishing the ideas you like and by getting rid of those you don’t.
- Take inspiration from religious wedding vows. Even if you don’t plan on having a religious ceremony, you can still take inspiration from the traditional religious wedding vows. They will give you a “blue print” for your own personalized wedding vows too.
- Take inspiration from books and movies. Do you have a favorite book? A favorite love poem? Or maybe a favorite movie that touched your heart in a special way? Don’t be afraid to use them as inspiration. In fact, you can even use quotes from them if you feel that they would reveal what you feel for the person you are about to get married to.
