As we talked before, wedding vows represent one of the most important and meaningful parts of a wedding. This is why many couples choose to write their own wedding vows; so that they make sure they are personalized and express exactly what they feel for each other. There are many ways to make sure you write personalized wedding vows, and I will talk about four of them.
Include a short poem
I am sure that many of you have some favorite lyrics from a poem or poetry. And I am also sure that those lyrics are about love. So, when you are out of ideas for your wedding vows, why not include those lyrics? Find a way to relate to them when you are writing your wedding vows, and you will impress your future spouse. I have some favorite lyrics of my own, and I sure I am going to use them in my wedding vows.
“I carry your heart in my heart
I am never without it
Anywhere I go, you go
And this is the wonder that keeps the starts apart,
I carry your heart in my heart.”
Funny wedding vows
Writing funny wedding vows is another trend in wedding planning. Many couples like to combine the sobriety of the meaning of the wedding vows with some funny lines, or words. Before deciding to write funny wedding vows, make sure your wedding officiant and your future spouse agrees; you don’t want to risk an embarrassment in front of the altar. One way to make your wedding vows funny that will always have success is to add to the vows a promise that you will make something that your future spouse likes. For example, here is my favorite funny promise used in wedding vows:
“I promise to make your favorite blueberries pancakes every Sunday”
Use a verse from the Bible
If you feel that your wedding vows should refer to the spiritual meaning of your wedding, you should think about including a verse from the Bible when you write your wedding vows. When choosing the right verse there are many ideas, but you should find the one that expresses best your road together as a couple. If I were to include Bible verses when I write my wedding vows I would go with the Ecclesiastes 3:1-8.
There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
Include your hobby
If you are really passionate about something, you should consider the idea of including that passion when you write your wedding vows. All you have to do is to write a text that uses specific words related to your passion. I once knew a man that really loved aquariums and when he got married he decided to personalize his wedding vows by using specific words. I don’t remember the vows exactly, but they sounded like this.
“Today I (name) choose you (name) to help me built the most wonderful aquarium in the world. Your beauty will make it shine, your organizing skills will make it look amazing and your strength will make it last. Together we will raise our fishes; we will clear the water when it becomes murky and we will make the algae disappear when they will want to interfere. “
