By choosing to craft your own wedding vows for your ceremony, you make time and space in your event to share your personal feelings about your partner, and take a moment to share why you are excited to spend your life with them. In other words, this creates a significant, meaningful moment at an already special occasion. Of course, for many people, this can feel intimidating as well as exciting. If you are not comfortable with writing and public speaking, sharing personal vows during your wedding ceremony can feel daunting. Fortunately, couples often find that when they give themselves time to work out what they want to say, their vows can come together beautifully!
Why Couples Choose To Craft Their Own Vows
By choosing to share your own vows, couples enjoy an opportunity to say in their own words why they are so excited to stand at the altar and be wed. Although traditional wedding vows remain popular for many, some couples may find that they want to say something more tailored to who they are, and what makes their relationship special. It can also feel odd to choose traditional vows when other aspects of your wedding are less conventional.
Give Yourself Time To Write, Rewrite, And Recite Your Vows
No matter how comfortable you feel with the tasks of writing and speaking to a crowd, you should give yourself time to work out your vows. Few moments of public speaking are as significant or personal as your time at the altar. Take the time to work out what you want to say, and give yourself opportunities to make edits so that your words are as clear and moving as possible. You should also practice reciting these words aloud. While you should feel confident in what you say, you do not have to memorize your vows – it is common for couples to read from cards at the ceremony.
Other Choices That Can Make Your Ceremony Feel More Personal
Personal vows are one of many ways to separate your ceremony from others that you have attended. Although your outdoor wedding venue can be stunning without effort, the work you put into decorating will help you convey your theme and establish your wedding colors. You can choose to make your event feel even more personal by choosing to have a close friend or family member serve as an officiant. They can provide personal insights into your relationship, and what makes it special, that a professional will not be able to offer.
