You and your partner have decided to declare your love for each other in front of your nearest and dearest, and you couldn’t be more excited to do so. YYou’ve got the whole day planned out, from where you’ll say “I do” to how you’ll celebrate afterward.our special day wouldn’t be complete without wedding vows to remember.  Do I sense a subtle cringe? I get it, you’re not a poet. Don’t worry, I’ve compiled a few hints and tips to get you started.

Although writing your own vows might be a little daunting,  seeing your partner’s face light up with overwhelming joy and love will make it all worth the extra time you spend. That’s a promise. 

Agree On the Number of Words or Vows

The first step to writing your vows should be to sit down with your partner and discuss the process. Chat about how many words you would like to write or the number of vows to make to each other. This is important, as it could be a little embarrassing if one partner says 3 words and the other recites a dissertation. Also, discuss a format with your partner, such as, whether you’ll make the vows romantic or humorous. It’s your big day; you can create your vows to suit your relationship. So, don’t be afraid to get creative.

Get Inspired

If there’s any that you particularly like the tone or style of, save them. I love listening to music and reading poetry to get inspired to write meaningful prose. If you’re religious, you could consider researching wedding bible verses or meaningful spiritual text. Just because you’re writing them yourself, doesn’t mean they can’t include the works of others. I say quotes make any speech better. The trick is to find one or two that say exactly what you want.

Consider Your Relationship Values

Making vows isn’t just to make promises to your partner; it’s also to tell him or her what you love about being together and your relationship. When writing your vows, think about what you value most about your relationship. Is it your partner’s kind and caring nature? Do you laugh together? Is it his or her  emotional side that you love? Whatever it is that you love about your partner, find a way to mention it in your vows. This will make the moment more personal and memorable.

Give the Gift of Your Heart and Creativity

gift-wrap-1287184_640Believe it or not, writing your own vows doesn’t have to be daunting or stressful. Remember to be yourself and understand that your partner loves you. There is nothing like giving another person the gift of your heart and creativity. The more personal and unique you make this declaration, the more special the moment will be. I’ve seen people sing their vows or even dance them. Get creative.

One other thing you can do is ask yourself this: If I had 5 minutes left with my partner on this planet, what would I say? I guarantee you’ll think of only the most important and loving words. Perfection isn’t necessary to create wedding vows to remember, just find your heart and speak it. 

About Kellie R. Stone

"I make no excuses for my diverse roles as a Rock Your Feminine Type Coach™ and Branding Expert, best-selling author, and crime thriller novelist. Yes, I do still chuckle a bit at the irony. I kick ass as a women’s biz coach by day and kill off vulnerable fiction characters at night. What the hell, it makes for some interesting dreams. I believe that everyone should pursue their passions no matter how out there they seem to be. One of those pure heart-fluttering passions for me has always been writing. Since I did, indeed, chase my dream of being a writer, I've published two non-fiction books in the self-development genre, co-authored an international best seller, and now I'm finally pushing my much-too-old-to-be-in-the-nest novel out the door and into the world. My whole world is empowering and I adore showing others how to live life unfiltered, whether I do that through the written word or my coaching work. I love my job!" ~Kellie R. Stone
