How To Write Perfect Wedding Vows
Writing your own wedding vows is a perfect way to express your love on your wedding day. Nothing is more romantic than looking one another in the eyes and speaking what is in your heart, in your own words.
Personalized wedding vows are a wonderful way to express your truest feelings. They contain the seeds of dreams to come true, and intentions for your married life. They are also a way to celebrate your relationship and have some fun sharing some of the things you loveóand also laugh aboutóin your relationship.
Here is an easy process on how to write perfect wedding vows.
1.Find inspiration for your wedding vows. Look for the kinds of sentiments you want to express in wedding readings, poetry, popular songs that you love or even greeting cards to find wedding vow inspiration. Pour through vow books that share the words of love used by other couples. Source vow ideas from the faiths or cultures you were born into or the spiritual traditions you love.

2. Connect to the feelings. When you are ready to write your own wedding vows, take a moment of pause or meditation to reconnect to the energy and magic that made you want to marry this person, and let the feelings flow.
3. Ask yourself these key questions before writing your perfect wedding vows. Jot down some notes:
∑What do you love about this man/woman?
∑What feelings pour over you when you think of his/her love for you?
∑What are your hopes and dreams for your married life?
∑What promises would you like to make?
4. Write a first draft. Begin by sharing what you love about your sweetie (you can include cute and funny reasons) and letting him/her know how he/she makes you feel. Next, share things you look forward to experiencing together. Sprinkle in promises you would like to make. Summarize by sharing how grateful you are for his/her love and the opportunity to share your lives.
Revise and perfect your wedding vows. Then go through the first draft; edit or add in new thoughts. Donít be afraid to use humoróif thatís your style. (ďI promise never to change the channel when the Yankees are on,Ē for example).
Make sure you speak from the heart. Let your sentiments come from the heart. They do not have to be long. Approach them with a K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple, Sweetheart) and make them real. Those are the PERFECT wedding vows.

There is always so much sentiment when people write their own vows, especially if they express themselves beautifully. Personalized wedding vows never fail to leave me teary-eyed, particularly if they were delivered as sincerely as it was intended to be. I do hope that for couples who prepare their own vows, they will remember these words as they go through the new chapter in their lives.

"Write a first draft. Begin by sharing what you love about your sweetie (you can include cute and funny reasons) and letting him/her know how he/she makes you feel. Next, share things you look forward to experiencing together. Sprinkle in promises you would like to make" This one really imposes a lot of importance because it shows how patient and dedicated you are.

Maybe you are right green. But I think they are just shying away from it because of pressure. Like what you have said, it is hard to write great wedding vows and from there they are feeling the pressure of it so they just try to ignore writing it.

Melvin, I don't think it is true that people are not giving it much importance. I just think that a lot of people don't really know how to write good wedding vows and stay away from it. You don't really want to write something really silly and read it out in front of all your guests on one of the biggest days of your life.

I am planning to write wedding Vows even though I am just too young. I believe it's better to prepare for it than not doing it. Vows are one of the sweetest things on marriage and I just can't imagine why people are not giving importance to it.

Wedding Vows are like icing on the cake. I can say this is one of the more important elements on setting up a long term relationship. Well for me I think it worths a lot that you might even need to hire someone to do the job for you. That's how important it is.

I read these ones not long ago and thought they were beautiful. Traditional ones seem a bit stuffy by comparison.
Groom: There was darkness for a long time and then there was light, and that light was you. Your love has given me wings, and our journey begins today. I pledge before this assembled company to be your husband from this day forward. Let us make of our two lives one life. I want you for today, tomorrow, and forever.
Bride: I have dreamed my whole life of having someone as wonderful as you love me the way you do. I give myself to you as your wife, and I promise here to treasure for all of my days the love we celebrate today. Let us bring together our lives and find ourselves anew each day.

Wow, I enjoyed reading this one. I so much agree that writing a draft is imperative to every guy. You don't want to have a messy wedding vow. I have also read a tip on a book Boy Meets Girl by Joshua Harris about it which I can recommend to everyone.
