As a wedding videographer, I’ve had the privilege of hearing many deep and heartfelt words of love from the couples I’ve filmed. Even the shyest and soft-spoken of individuals can speak the most beautiful words to their spouse. Here’s a few tips on writing and saying your marriage vows.
To start writing the vows, think about the unique and special qualities of your fiancé's personality. What attracted you to them? Let them know them what makes them special to you.
Next, remember that your vow is a promise to your new spouse. You don’t have to give them the moon and stars, or promise that everything will always be wonderful. Marriage, just like life, will have its ups and downs. All you need to do is commit your love, support, and encouragement for the rest of your life together.
Your marriage should be filled with laughter,and you can also add some fun promises to this part that you know well make the other person smile.
Lastly, end with your hopes and dreams. Not just for your marriage and the rest of your life together, but also for your spouse and their happiness.
Now the wedding day is here, and it’s time to say the words!
I suggest practicing your vows beforehand, but don't worry about memorizing them. It's perfectly okay to bring a written copy to your ceremony.
When it’s your turn to say your vows, be sure to take time look up from the words into the eyes of your spouse. Don’t rush through them! Savor the moment. You can forget about all the guests and the bridal party, and anything else around you. Just enjoy this special moment between you and your love.
Oh, and be sure to have some tissues handy. Either in your pocket, or easily passed to you by your best man or maid of honor.
And that’s all there is to it! What are must haves to include in your wedding vows? I’d love to know!
