To Vow or Not To Vow

To Vow or Not To Vow

Weddings seem to be on the increase in 2017 and authenticity and originality are in high demand. Stock standard wedding vows are being replaced by meaningful promises and declarations.

But this doesn’t always come easily.  “Where do I start?”, “What do I say?”, “How long should my vows be?” are normal questions that need to be asked.

My simple words of advice:
1.     Write from your heart not your head
2.     No-one knows your fiancée like you do
3.     Ensure your promises are ones that you are prepared to uphold through all things married life may have in store for you over the years
4.     And finally a thesaurus is a wonderful thing!

Most celebrants come armed with a wide range of vows that have been tried and tested.  Sometimes reading through them will inspire you to write your own…or… Why not take one of their examples and simply add a private promise that you both share.

Apart from a few mandatory legal words, your wedding vows should reflect you! – they don’t have to be the same, there is no exact amount of words – just be true – be true to your heart and to the person you are marrying.
