The very moment before you say “I Do” you say the sweetest, most heartfelt words to your significant other while you’re surrounded by all of your loved ones; at that second it just feels like you two are the only two people in the world. Your vows are words that will stick around far longer than the ceremony and reception. You reach for the meaning behind your vows in times of need. Your vows are the special words that you will cherish in your heart. You’ll remember what they meant and the specific words for a life time. Even so, it may be difficult to free style on the day of your wedding. You may even feel intimidated by the challenge of writing your own vows.
In reality all that matters is if it comes from the depths of your emotions. When it comes to putting your feelings on paper or speaking in front of a large group, you may decide not to write your own vows out of fear of messing up or the words not coming out the way you thought they would. If you want to be unique without the stress of coming up with what to say on your own, you may decide to read one of your favorite poems because it embodies your feelings. Go ahead, you can even add in some of your own words to express your love if you feel comfortable. Or you might have a favorite song that speaks to your heart when you think of your soul mate; saying those lyrics would truly demonstrate your love for your mate.
You may have tried to write your vows time and time again and cannot get the words out as effectively, or you’re afraid you’ll cry like a baby, like I did. Whether you free style your vows, read a poem, quote from the lyrics of a song or repeat the vows after your Minister, it’s worth decided well in advance just in case you need to rehearse a few times. Even though you may not know what to say, it’s important that you give it some thought so you can be sure that the vows you state are from your heart. All and all, make sure you express how you feel and that you are sincere regarding the commitment you are making to your mate. Your vows should be true on your wedding day and you should do all in your power to uphold them even during hard times.
