Have you hit writers block on writing your wedding vows? You’re not the only one. This may sound like one of the hardest tasks, putting all your love and promises in just a couple of sentences. Overwhelming? Yes. Difficult? Not exactly, you just need a little help getting your thoughts in one place.
Here are our top 5 tips for writing your wedding vows
1. Read Examples
No bride-to-be knows how to do this, it’s good to look at examples to get an idea of what is said and what to possibly say. Every vow is different, just as every relationship is. Examples won’t steer your vows away from being unique, no matter what it is.
2. Ask yourself why you’re marrying your Significant Other
Think of the reasons you love this person and why you’re marrying them and write that down. What made you fall in love in the first place? Keeping notes of what makes your significant other so special will make a faster and smoother process when writing your vows.
3. Think of your favorite memories
It’s always great to add some of your best memories. Go back in time and share a story with your loved ones. Inside jokes and cheesy comments makes your vows personal and connected with your partner.
4. Write a few drafts
Get all your thoughts in one place and write everything that comes to mind. The good, the bad the funny moments, and hard times. Look back and reminisce on everything you two have been through.
5. A little goes a long way
Words will never explain how much your significant other means to you, which makes it hard to not say everything you feel. With the help of your drafts you’ll be able to look at what you’ve written and summarize it into a short-personalized vow.
