Here are 6 Easy Steps you Can Take to Write Your Own Wedding Vows!
Writing your own personalized wedding vows can be a difficult task, but it is not as difficult as it sounds. Here are six easy steps you can take to write your own wedding vows.
Tips to Write Your Wedding Vows
1. Make sure everyone is on the same page
Talk to your future spouse and officiant and make sure everyone is okay with personalized wedding vows. Some religions require you to use traditional text, while others allow you to write your own, as long as it includes certain phrases. You also want to make sure your boyfriend wants to do that too. As you do so, decide together if you want to write a set of wedding vows that you will both say, or if you want to write them individually.
2. Answer a few simple questions
Time to do homework. Sit in a quiet space with a pencil and paper and answer these questions. Even if you think the answer won't end with your wedding vows, take the time to write it down anyway. This can help you in the long run. If you encounter writer's block, first try taking a short break. If you're still having trouble, try saying the answers on a tape recorder, letting your thoughts flow freely.
- What is the best thing about the person you are going to marry?
- When did you know that you were in love / did you know that this person was the one you wanted to marry?
- What does marriage mean to you? Why do you want to be a married person?
- What is the most important thing you want to promise your partner? What is the promise you most want to hear from them? (For example, it may be very important for you to promise that you will always respect them. Or you may want them to pledge their undying loyalty.)
- What will change in your relationship after you get married? What will be the same?
- What is your favorite memory of your partner?
- When you were little, did you dream of your wedding day or your future spouse? How does this vision (or not) fit with your girlfriend?
3. Consult the experts
Take the time to read a variety of wedding vows, as well as poetry passages, love stories, and famous texts about love. Print your favorites and highlight the passages that speak especially to you.
4. Put it all together
Go back to the words you wrote earlier and highlight the passages that you may want to include in your wedding vows. Now is the time to narrow things down and select the best of all the material you have to work with. Try to take a sentence or two from the literature, add a sentence or two with the answers to the above questions, and end with a vow, a sentence that begins with "I promise" or "I swear." For example, you can say, “Maria, as the poet Rilke said, 'This is the miracle that always happens to those who really love him. The more they give, the more they have ”. You are the most generous, loving, and selfless person I know.
I fell in love with you from the moment I saw you with your daughter for the first time, treating her with great respect and giving her all of you. I am so happy that you have chosen to share your love with me and that I am growing old by your side. Maria, today I choose you as my wife. I promise to love you, honor you, take care of you and be faithful to you, starting today and for the rest of our lives. "
5. If that didn't work...
Try filling in the blanks with a simpler vote:
(Your girlfriend's name), you are mine (best friend, true love, with whom I want to spend the rest of my life, etc.) Today, I take you for mine (wife, husband, legally married wife) or husband, partner of life, etc.) I promise that I will be (faithful, worthy of your trust, worthy of your love, your loving partner, etc.) I swear to you (honor you, take care of you, love you, respect you, laugh with you, cry with you, support you in your goals, etc.), (insert here the duration of your vote, for example, for the richest, for the poorest, in sickness and in health, while both Live.)
6. Practice, Practice, Practice
First, try reading what you have written aloud to a trusted friend or family member. Ideally, this person should be a good writer and know your relationship. They may have good suggestions for you, or simply reading it out loud can help you identify where you can improve. After defining a final version, practice reading on your own to make sure you are comfortable with it. If you can, try to memorize it. But memorize it well or not, be sure to write down your wedding vows on a card (and give an extra copy to the best man or maid of honor!) So your nerves don't spoil all your hard work.
