How to Write Your Own Wedding Vows

     It is easy to show your love through appreciation and respect, kindness and love. But how do you say it all? What’s even worse, you are to write your own vow that should be said in front of almost everybody you know. It’s not going to be easy.

Vows should be only a small portion of what you feel for your partner. You are not allowed to say anything shocking in front of a crowd, which is tough, so you need to prepare, observe and when you feel inspired, pen it down.

The first thing you are going to do is read hundreds of vows online for inspiration. Start reading the best ones according to your religion, practice and sensibility. Read them and they will give you ideas. You are not allowed to steal anyone’s idea though, this is your marriage and you want it to be special. If you see anything you like, incorporate it in your own words; don’t copy other people’s love letters.

Talk to your partner about the tone and format of the vows. Agree to make it short and sweet, or long and romantic. Try to do it in the same manner, as that will show that you are thinking alike. If you decide to make promises to one another, say some biblical proverbs, or whatever you decide, keep it in the same format. Then, when it is done, decide whether you are going to share it with your partner before the wedding ceremony.

Notes about your relationship can be pretty helpful. Take a pen and a paper, and answer some of the most important question about your bond and relationship.

Answer the questions such as:

Why did you decide to get married?

What were the hard times in your relationship?

Did you support each other during hard time?

What are you challenges that you have been through together?

What makes your relationship good and loving?

What do you want to accomplish together?

When did you realize that you fell in love with your partner?

Now, answer those questions and get the best answer to be a front-runner for your vows. Vows should be honest, from the bottom of your heart and you need to really believe in them.

Write it all down. Find the best structure that you are comfortable with and just open your heart. Praise everything good about you as a couple and write your first draft.

Some experts advice to do a four-part outline: Affirm your love, praise the future spouse, promise something meaningful and your final vow.

This is one of the modern structures and it could help you get better in expressing your love, especially on the most important day in your life. Both Bride and Groom anxiously wait for this moment to hear out what the person feels and the commitments he or she is going to put forward while the vows are exchanged. Hence try your best at any point during the exchange of the vows not to put your better half down at any moment.

There are many Christian Matrimonial sites online that provide some good tips and ideas which can help you pen down your own set of vows. A simple search would list you many of such sites.

In India and especially in Kerala, Christian Brides and Groom exchange vows during the wedding ceremony.

Nowadays apart from wedding ceremonies people even rewrite and read their vows again at their important wedding anniversaries, thereby expressing their never ending feeling of love and commitment towards their loved ones. People always cherish such unforgettable moments in their heart throughout their lives.
