If you are considering exchanging personal vows during your wedding ceremony, you are not alone. One-third of couples write their own vows. But what if you are not good at expressing your feelings? Let’s face it. We aren’t all word poets!
We have a few tips to help you create the perfect vows that will make your fiancé’s heart melt. But even if these tips don’t get the words flowing, never fear. Read on, because we have a solution for you that will definitely solve your vow-writing woes!
It may be helpful to decide on the tone of your vows before you compose them. Do you want your vows to be romantic? Humorous? Touching? A combination? It’s all up to you.
Most couples don’t share their personal vows with each other before the wedding, so if that’s the situation with you and your fiancé, I suggest that you touch base with your beloved and see if your vows will be similar in tone. It may be a bit awkward if one is pledging to be there through the ages while the other is promising not to leave the toilet seat up.
If it matters to you, you can also get on the same page with the length of the vows. If you’d rather not discuss it with your fiancé just yet, you can agree to separately and privately send your vows to your officiant to get their opinion and compare the length. While there is no wrong way to recite your vows, it could be embarrassing if one spouse shares vows that are 10 pages long and the other shares just 10 words.
