Truth: I wrote my wedding vows on the morning of my wedding. Last minute much? Heck Yes. But because I'm a journalist, I told myself, "hey, how hard can it be? I'm a writer, I can do this!" And so I rolled the dice and took pen to paper just a few hours before I said, "I do," and I wrote my vows. But I'm not going to lie, I wouldn't advise it. I was up against the clock and it's not like I needed any more stress that day!!
But I totally get it, writing your vows can be really hard. So like me, you may be putting it off. After all, you want to pen something beautiful that your sweetheart will never forget -- words to cherish for the rest of his/her life.
Here are five fantastic tips recently offered by Wedding Wire, to help get you started on writing those vows.
Recall Relationship Highlights
Recall a special relationship moment you shared together. Perhaps the first time you knew he/she was the one.
Share Sentimental Qualities
Highlight your sweetheart's best qualities and share how they make you a better person. Let your guests know what you love the most about your soon-to-be spouse.
Say "I Love You"
Don't forget to say, "I Love You." If there is ever a day to let he/she know how you feel, it's on your Wedding Day. And don't be afraid to let all your guests know just how much you love that wonderful person by your side.
Promise he/she the world, promise to always be there when needed, promise to always make date nights, promise to always take out the trash. Be true, be sweet, be funny. But always promise love and you can't go wrong!
