Tips for writing your own wedding vows
Fun fact - that's my husband in the picture above. He's holding the vows that he wrote to me for our 10 year vow renewal.
Writing your own wedding vows is a must for me. It's the advice I give to all couples, write your own wedding vows! It may seem like a daunting task, where do you begin? how long do they have to be? What do I even say? What are vows?
Let me offer you 3 tips to write your own wedding vows.
Begin your wedding vows with what you love and admire about your partner, list the attributes and dive into the why.
Next, write examples of those reasons, share a story or two of a time when those reasons became reality for you.
Close your wedding vows with your promises or vows. Google is a great place to grab inspiration for the vows, to get ideas for specific wording, but let's take it a step further, once you see a great vow, make it personal, change it up to include specific things about relationship. For example, instead of saying "I promise to always love you" change it to "I promise to continue to show you I love you by always kissing you goodnight, even though we both know you're sleeping and won't know but you'll ask and get disappointed if I say no, so I will always kiss you goodnight"
Make your wedding vows personal. Make them reflect your personality, if you are funny, then make some of it funny, but always include a sentimental moment or two, love is the highlight here.
Love stories are my passion
