Writing you own vows, 'The How To' & 'The Not To's'. Get the best 'I do' experience!

January 28, 2018

 

Writing you own vows can be a huge challenge.  Just like in Married At First Sight, it's the moment you can make that great impression, give a well summed up elevator pitch on your life together.   Your time to shine, and declare your love! So no pressure ;)  

 

You're not the only one!

 

To start with, hours of googling aint going to work, it might give you ideas but nobody knows your relationship like you do! Make sure you talk to your partner about what kind of tone you are going for.  Will it be super romantic, are you going in lighthearted and adding some humor?  Will your vows be a surprise? If so, you will need to let your Celebrant know so they can ensure they don't ruin it for you.  They are also your greatest tool.  Make sure you quietly tell them you are struggling and if they are a good Celebrant, they will be able to give you pointers.  Often I give the other partner some hints if there vows don't quite match up! 

 

Keeping these 3 points in mind should help you get started.

 

1) Reflect on the past

2) What do you love about the present 

3) What are you hope for the future. 

 

However if you are still struggling to find the right words here's a little exercise for you.  Go grab so post it notes!!!!  

 

On each post it note write something about your partner, this could be;

 

1) What was it about your partner that you noticed first, what made you fall in love with them.  Look for one key point.  Example might be; "She had the most beautiful smile which I just wanted to see again and again.  

 

2) Was there anything funny or unique about your meeting or the relationship.  Could be that you missed a flight and ended up sitting next to each other in the departure lounge.
