How To Prepare For Your Wedding Vows
Your wedding is one brief day in time, and although your vows are spoken in a matter of minutes, they are promises that will last a lifetime.
This moment is the anchor that holds your past and your future together. Since it represents your public declaration of your love and marriage promises, it is important to be emotionally prepared.
Why Vows Are Important
Throughout your relationship, you have been many things to one another – acquaintance, friend, companion, lover, dancing partner, and even teacher. And now, you get to add “spouse” to this ever-growing list.
During your time together, you have both learned that good company and friendship count for more than wealth, looks, power, or position. You have realized that the journey of marriage is a path that is best gone through with a great companion.
The symbolic vows that you make are a way of acknowledging every promise you have made and and every hope or dream you’ve shared, and those you will make and share together for years to come.
Writing Your Own Vows
It is always a nice touch when couples write their own vows. It’s the best way to bring personality into your wedding ceremony, and a great way to engage the audience. Expressing your love on paper may seem daunting, but it’s easier than you’d think.
Take the time to consider the things you love about your partner and write down a few memories that come to mind. Think about the promises that you’ve made and include them in the vows. At the end, remember to include your goals, aspirations, and qualities you want to embrace as a couple in the future.
