My Fiance and I Want to Write Our Own Vows, How Do We Get Started?

First talk to your officiant to find out if you can write your own vows or if your religious service won’t allow you to. Once you get the greenlight you can look for inspiration anywhere: songs, poems, the Bible, the movies, your own love story.

It’s most important that you speak from the heart and share with your fiance, and your guests, why you love each other, what this day means to you and your wishes for the future.

It’s important to remember that your vows will be spoken aloud so you don’t want to say something that’s embarrassing to you, your fiance or any of your guests.

You may want to come to an agreement with your fiance as to the length of your vows and if you want to include or omit anything specific. It’s up to you if you want to write your vows together, write them separately but share them with each other before the big day or surprise each other.

Make sure you write out your vows (or type them) carefully so that you won’t have any trouble reading them. If you’re planning on memorizing them write them out anyway just in case the emotions of the day make it hard for you to remember them.

And save the printed copy in a safe place because this is one wedding detail you’ll cherish.
