Written by on October 31, 2012 in Relationships - No comments | Print this page


More and more often, many couples are choosing to write their own vows. It shows a personable factor that traditional vows do not. However, writing one’s own vows can be a scary and overwhelming thing to do for some. Both the bride and groom want their words to be as perfect as possible on the big day. Some go for a very romantic approach, while others may throw in a bit of humor. The choice is yours, but making it about each other is absolutely necessary. Below are some great tips and questions to ask yourself to get you started on the perfect wedding day vows.

  • How did you meet your spouse to be?
  • What were your first impressions of him or her?
  • When and where did you first meet each other?
  • What was going on in your life when you met each other?
  • Where was your first date? How did it go?
  • Who asked who out first? What attracted you to say yes or ask?
  • At what moment did you realize you were love? Describe the feeling, the place, what went through your mind, etc.
  • What inspires you about your spouse to be?
  • What quirky characteristics do you love most about him or her?
  • What life goals and dreams do you share for your future together?
  • What  life lessons, serious or funny, did you learn from each other?
  • What is it about your love for him or her that is unique?
  • How has he or she changed your views on the world?
  • What do you most look forward to regarding the future with this person?
  • What are some special moments in your relationship? Use them all, even the bad times as well as the happy, moving, or funny.
  • Where did he or she propose?
  • How did he or she propose?
  • How did the proposal make you feel?

Once you gather these kinds of details, try writing some drafts in your own words. Be honest and be yourself. Also, when writing your own vows, you need to be patient. This is very important, as it is easy to get frustrated or feel that what you have written is not good enough. Therefore, take your time and write several drafts if need be. Over time they will form into the perfect words for your perfect day.

Your partner is guaranteed to be impressed, not to mention grateful, that you took the time to express exactly how you feel about her/him.
