By crafting your own wedding vows, you gain an opportunity to share something truly personal about your relationship, and the love of your life, during your ceremony. These opportunities excite many couples, which has made the decision to share custom vows more common over time. Of course, when you decide this is right for your wedding ceremony, you face the important task of actually penning your vows! If you struggle with this responsibility, focus on why you have chosen this route over traditional vows. Just as the right wedding venue can help you create a look for your special day that suits you, your custom vows let you craft a speech that expresses why you are so happy to stand at the altar with your partner.

What You Gain From Exchanging Personal Vows

When you craft personalized vows, you can make sure the words you exchange during the ceremony fit the event itself, and that they truly reflect the way you feel about the person you are marrying. While conventional vows can still suit a more traditional wedding event, many couples will choose to say something personal in order to share why they have chosen to spend their life with their loved one.

Tips For Crafting Your Vows

If you are struggling to come up with vows to share at the altar, start with an outline that focuses more on what you want to say than what you intend to say. This will give you the chance to write out talking points that you can insert into your planned vows. One important thing to keep in mind is that your vows should stay close to the tone of your actual wedding event. If you intend to host a more casual event, you can take a more relaxed and fun approach to what you say (while still being sincere). At a more formal wedding event, you should try to stick with a more formal speech when you recite your vows.

Things To Do After You Craft Your Vows

While you should not give away everything you plan to say at your ceremony, you and your partner can talk about what you plan on saying. The benefit to doing this is that you can make sure you are on the same page when it comes to the length and tone of your vows. You do not have to memorize your vows, but you should make sure they are written down and easily readable when you are at the altar. Practice reading them before the big day in order to speak with more comfort at the ceremony.
