Writing Your Own Wedding Vows
September 9, 2021

Writing your own wedding vows is a wonderful way to personalise your wedding ceremony. The idea may, however, seem rather daunting, so here are a few tips;

  1. Don’t feel limited by the idea that there is a ‘right way’ to write your vows. The important thing is they have meaning to you as a couple.
  2. Spend some time reading other vows. By observing not just the content but the style you will start to get a sense of what feels appropriate.
  3. Consider whether you want to write your vows together or would rather do them separately. If separate do you want some consistency of style or doesn’t it matter?
  4. Vows can be broad in scope, such as ‘I promise to always love and cherish you,’ or more specific, perhaps reflecting your day to day life as a couple
  5. Try to think long term. What will your vows sound like to you in 10 years time? Will they still feel relevant?
  6. Try not to make them too ‘wordy’. It’s better to have a few clear points.
  7. Practice out loud. They are the heart of your ceremony and you want the words to be heard.
