Reflect on your relationship and take notes
If you can, take a little of time to yourself. Find your favorite spot, sit down with your favorite drink, maybe a snack too, and allow yourself to become inspired! Reflect on your relationship and jot down notes. Answer the most important questions about your relationship; the who, what, when, where, why, and how. Who are you marrying, and who are they to you? What do you love about them? When did you know you were in love? Where was it that you first met? Why do you love them? How have the impacted your life, made it better? Answering these questions will help you write genuine vows.
Work with your partner to set a format and tone
Discuss with your partner the vision you have for your vows. You can set the tone together, such as funny, romantic, and unique; a little bit of everything! Also, discuss whether they will be left as a surprise for your ceremony, or if you will share what you have written beforehand. This will allow you to stay on the same page and have a smooth flowing ceremony.
Think of every single promise you want to make
Your vows are the promises you want to make to your new spouse. The promises you want to carry out through your entire marriage should be laid out for you to recite. Your promises to your partner are the most important part to your vows, and in all honesty, it’s one of the most important parts of your wedding too. Adding promises that are broad in scope are just as important as adding specific promises. These are promises that you will have to live up to for the rest of your life, so be sure they are what you really want to say to your partner.
Practice, practice, practice…out loud
The best way to ensure that you recite anything correctly is to practice it. Practicing it out loud allows you to hear yourself and the emotions as you express as you recite your vows. No matter how awkward it may feel to talk to no one, especially when expressing such intimate and personal feelings, it is still very important to practice as much as possible before your big day. You will be able to recite your vows comfortably if you have had a chance to practice them.
