Tips for Writing Your Wedding Vows

Choosing to write your own wedding vows is an excellent way to ensure that your vows accurately reflect your feelings. While many of the standard vows that are used for weddings may come close to expressing your feelings the only way to say exactly what you want to say is to write your own vows. Unfortunately writing your own wedding vows is not as simple as it seems, at least for most people. The following tips are intended to make the process of writing your own wedding vows not seem so intimidating.

The first step to writing your wedding vows is to relax. It is important to remember that even the most prolific writer may have difficulty when it comes to writing their vows. The reason for this is that vows are so personal and they really require quite a bit of self reflection before they can be written. Spend some time alone thinking about whom you are and why you are choosing to enter into this relationship. Reflecting on why you want to get married is an excellent way to jump start you to begin writing your wedding vows.

Another important tip for writing your own wedding vows is to write them a week or two before the wedding. If you wait until the last minute to begin writing your vows you are likely to feel stressed out and have a great deal of difficulty writing. For this reason you should write your vows long before your wedding day so that you are not up all night the night before your wedding trying to think of what to say when it might have come naturally to you a couple of weeks ago when you weren’t under the pressure of having to complete the vows in one day.

Writing from your heart is one of the most important things you can do when you are writing your own wedding vows. Doing this will ensure that the words of your vows are a true reflection of the feelings in your heart. When you do this, it will be clear to your significant other that you really mean the words that you are speaking.

Finding a quiet location to write your vows is also important. Trying to write your vows while there are several people buzzing around can be quite difficult because you are not able to fully concentrate. Choosing a quiet room, however, gives you the opportunity to be completely alone with your thoughts while you are writing your vows. It is then that you can really be sure that the words of your vows are uncluttered by any other outside sources.

Sometimes the hardest part about writing your vows is putting the first few words on paper. This can be for a number of reasons and is not likely an indication that you do not truly love your partner. The problem is often that you just do not know where to start. One way to get you rolling is to read a few other wedding vows to get an idea of how they flow and what type of message they convey. You may find that reading a few existing vows, helps you to understand what you want to say to your partner.

Although writing your own wedding vows can sometimes be difficult it is one of the best ways to really express your love for your partner. When you speak from your heart and allow your emotions and feelings to flow freely you are in a position where you can really let your partner know how much they mean to you.
