It’s not as difficult as you might think. Even those who aren’t confident in writing can still create beautiful sentiments with little inspiration.
These tips will help you write your vows and lessen the stress leading up to the big day.
AVOID LAST-MINUTE STRESS
Rule number 1: Don’t put off writing your vows! Why? This can lead to a lot of stress and can affect our creativity. It can help to take the time to plan your vows, make a few drafts, and then come up with something that you love. This will allow for things to go smoothly on the day.
MAKE A LIST OF ALL YOUR THOUGHTS
Make time for yourself to think about your partner. What makes your partner so special? What made you realize they were the right ones for you? What are their unique qualities? What makes you feel special? How do you feel about them? How did you meet? What makes your relationship unique? This will help you identify key elements that can be used as a focal point in your vows. Let your heart speak!
STAY TRUE TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP
Writing your vows can reflect your personality and your relationship. Your vows can reflect your personality and show that you are a fun-loving couple. Your vows can reflect your individuality as a couple. Vows that highlight individuality and diversity are a favourite choice of guests. Don’t be afraid of expressing your feelings in your vows!
AGREE WITH A SIMILAR TONE
Writing vows can be stressful because you have to predict what your partner will say. To avoid embarrassment and disappointment, it is not a bad idea to agree on a writing tone with your partner. Talk to your partner about what tone they prefer. You will feel more confident in writing what you want to write once you have agreed on a tone. Let’s not forget that weddings are not 21 first birthday parties, so don’t try to embarrass your beloved one.
PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE!
We will repeat it, even though we know it well. Practice makes perfect. You can avoid unnecessary stress and nerves by practising your vows as many times as possible. Practice in front of a mirror or your pet to instil the confidence needed to deliver your vows on the big day.
We hope you find these tips helpful and that they will inspire you to start writing your vows.
