The wedding bells are ready to ring in your life. Your wedding date is fixed and the so you are all geared and tucked up for the greatest moment in your life. Well! You should be, for that big moment of your life. If you have plans of writing your own wedding vows write them such a way that the memory of it will last for one lifetime for both of you.
Writing your own wedding vows can be really a pleasurable experience for some while the idea of writing sends down jitters down the spine for some. In any case if you can plan well in advance you can write your vows without any sort of nervousness. The idea of writing your own wedding vows is becoming increasingly popular these days. Many couples want to do it by themselves.
But remember that you need to write unique vows to make your special day different and memorable for not just you both but for the wedding guests as well.
Definitely it's a challenge and without any preparation, if you sit down to write your wedding vow you may experience a writer's block, and will not come up with great ideas on what and how to say.
Also, it should be noted that wedding vows are and should be a personal expression, so let not perfection take over the personal expression while writing your vow. It is not necessary that you are a master of flowery language or you read Keats. Neverheless, speak from the heart and the soul naturally. Grammar, spellings, length, should not obstructive the flow of words from your heart regarding your promise to your groom. Tell him why you truly love him the first place, and what quality in him made you decide to take on this long journey of a lifetime. Jot down what you wanted to write and then reserve it for refinement.
Make sure you put your relationship with your fiancé in words and add what kind of a relationship do you promise for him and expect from him. Siphon out your innermost feelings as words and you will be awed at your own expression.
Allow whatever you have jotted down to sink in for some time and go out with your fiancé and then go through those written vows once again. You may have the feeling to edit it as well. Read them aloud to yourself or to your close friend again and again, until there is nothing to be edited.
Lastly, do not be surprised if he echoes your feelings. That's the magic of love and since you shared a common relationship, there is nothing strange that you may be having similar feelings for each other. So your vows may be reading similar.
