Give yourself enough time to write your own wedding vows

Know that you probably won’t be able to write your wedding vows in one sitting. You’ve already put so much time and effort into planning your wedding – your wedding vows deserve just as much attention as every other detail, if not more! After all, the wedding ceremony is the “main event” of the wedding.

Ask Others. You know your partner very well, but from a different view than others may know them. If there is one person who knows almost just as much about your partner as you do, it’s likely to be their Best Man or Maid of Honor. So, take a day out with them, to discuss all of the things that you both cherish about your partner. By doing so, you will be provided with the opportunity to get a different perspective on how your partner’s personality is adored by others, which is sure to spark your creativity to assist you with writing your vows.

Write a “Love Letter”. Whether the last time you wrote a love letter was for your crush back in high school, or for your partner in the beginning of your relationship, this is the perfect opportunity to start writing once again. With so much pressure being put on you to write the best vows anyone has ever heard, it can seem overwhelming, and even stressful, to put such heartfelt words onto paper. However, if you look at it form a different view, such as if you were to write a love letter to your soulmate, the words may flow more easily. Writing a few love letters may give you more options for creating your vows. Or, you can simply turn your vows into a love letter!

Once you grab your partner’s hand, look them in the eyes, and recite your beautifully written vows. Overall, know that all of the hard work you put into writing them will be well worth it in the end.
