{ Personalizing your Wedding Vows }

Wedding vows are such a sweet aspect of every wedding. It's the time where the bride and groom look into each others eyes and express their love, their hopes for the future, and their commitment to one another. Traditionally, most couples would join at the alter, repeat their vows after the officiant, and kiss to seal the deal. However, recently many couples have chosen to create a more personal and intimate moment with their vows by foregoing tradition and writing their own. As sweet and romantic as this is, it can often be difficult to put these thoughts into words. That's where we come in! We've come up with some tips to make personalizing your wedding vows a breeze.

1. Who is your future spouse is to youOften times it's good to begin your wedding vows with a sentence or two about who your future spouse is to you. This could be stating that they are your best friend, your lover, your sunshine on a rainy day, your everything... The list is endless.

2. What you LoveContinue your wedding vows by stating all of the things that you love about your partner. Think about why and when you decided you wanted to spend forever with them. Think about all of the things that you love about your partner and why they are important to you. Writing all of your thoughts will not only remind you about what it is that draws you to this person but it will also allow you to choose the most important aspect that you want to include in your vows.

3. Use a storyUsing a short story about a time you had with your partner can help create an image in the minds of your guests of just how beautiful your love is. it is also a wonderful way to bring to light a joyous memory that the two of you share together.

4. What you promiseMake promises to your partner and vow to keep those promises. This can be something funny such as, "I vow to never leave the toilet seat up" or as meaningful as "I vow to stand by you and support you in everything that you do". Take some time to think about ways that you want to show your love to your spouse and how you will keep that love alive.

5. TogetherThink of things that you want to accomplish or do together. What are some things that you look forward to sharing with one another. This can be as simple as saying "I want to grow old together" or "I want to wake up every morning beside you". Whatever it is, make it personal.

6. Through thick & thinMake sure to include something that reassures your partner that you will be there beside them for better or for worse, in sickness and in health. Promise that when times get hard that you will cling to one another and grow your love.

7. "As long as we both shall live"Last but not least include one last promise. Promise to love them forever, until death do you part.

Writing your own vows is such a special and intimate option! Don't get caught up in making every word perfect, but speak form the heart and make it personal! If saying all of these things in front of a large crowd doesn’t seem right to you, then maybe take some time during your first look or right after the ceremony to share these with one another and take the traditional vows during your ceremony! Whatever you do, do it with all your heart!!
