When it comes to the big day, there are so many details that will stand out – the wedding venue, the bridal car, the dress, the catering. The biggest thing that people will remember from the ceremony, though, are the vows. Not only that, but it’s a way of expressing your love and gratitude for your partner, to tell them how you feel. It can be a nerve-wracking experience, because you want to say exactly the right thing and encapsulate precisely how you feel.

If you’re a bit stuck about how to go about writing your wedding vows, or you find the concept intimidating, here we can give you a few tips, tricks and methods to inject that extra bit of feeling, emotion and sincerity into your vows, so they are perfect to be spoken on the big day.

Write them Together and Share the Same Vows

Two minds are greater than one. This is a wonderful way to do it if you’re feeling the nerves and pressure of the experience. Collaborating on your vows is a great way to begin the journey of wedded matrimony, and is a representation of what the whole gesture of marriage is all about. You’ll be spending your lives together, why not share vows together?

Consult Each Other but have Different Vows

Come together initially and have a briefing about length, tone, and layout. You can outline anecdotes or little titbits of what you want to include, just to run it by your significant other. After all, it’s them who knows you best. On the day, the vows will be familiar, but the finer details will be a surprise.

Consult a Close Friend for Inspiration

What are friends for, if not for advice? Usually a close friend can offer a fresh perspective, or recall something that you may have forgotten, or something that is glaringly obvious that you may have simply overlooked to include in your vows.

Write Separately and Make Them a Surprise

This is the most common and traditional way of writing vows, and best for if you know exactly what you want to say. It’s great to look through photos of the two of you, read over old correspondence, and reminisce on moments of your relationship for inspiration during the process. On the day, both of your vows will be a big surprise, and there’s bound to not be a dry eye between you or among all your guests at your wedding.
