Tips for Writing Your Wedding Ceremony Vows

Throughout your relationship there have been many sweet exchanges. The first time you told each other those three special words “I love you”, hearts skipped a beat and you bonded on a new level. Your proposal likely even featured a romantic speech that explained how important you are to one another. Your wedding ceremony will also feature some of the most important words you will ever speak to each other, your vows.

Writing your vows can be quite difficult. After all, how do you explain to your soulmate how much you love them, when you yourself may not even be able to put it into words? Luckily, you have plenty of time to translate your feelings and promises into a sweet speech.

Here at Columbus Bride & Groom, we believe that wedding vows are the most important promises you will make to your partner, and keep. That’s why we have put together a few helpful tips for writing your own wedding ceremony vows. If you are in need of a little inspiration, be sure to continue reading:

  • Inspiration on What to Write. Putting your feelings into words can be a difficult task, especially when under stress. You know that these will be the most important words you will ever speak to your partner, as they are a lifelong promise. If you still need something to spark your inspiration, take a second to look at your partner. Think of all the things that you love about them. What made you fall in love with your partner? Really taking these aspects into consideration can evoke some of your deepest feelings for your partner.
  • Team Up with Your Partner. Of course, your wedding vows should stay a secret until your big day. But, that doesn’t mean that you can’t get on the same page with your partner. The best way to team up is to determine a length for your vows. If either you or your partner presents vows that are much longer than the other, it can be embarrassing or hurt feelings. When you decide on a set length, you can avoid any awkward moments.
  • Presenting Your Vows. Sometimes, presenting your vows can be as nerve wracking as writing them, especially for those with stage fright. If you are worried about reciting your vows in front of your many guests, and most importantly your soon to be spouse, we have a helpful trick for you; just focus on your partner! Look into their eyes, grab onto their hands, and focus on just speaking to your partner. In addition, practicing in front of the mirror before the big day can assist you with preparing.

It is such a beautiful thing that you and your partner have decided to write your own vows for one another. These tips can help you to ensure that yours are written and presented with ease.
