Original Wedding Vows - Tips, Ideas and Samples for Inspiration

Are you seeking inspiration for original wedding vows?

Wedding vows are as unique as each couple who speaks them. Wedding vows are as varied as a simple promise to love forever the one you are marrying, to a 10 minute recital from one's favorite author, movie, or play.

Writing your own wedding vows sounds like it is intimidating, but anyone who wishes to add a touch of romance and creativity to their wedding ceremony should absolutely make an effort to write their own wedding vows. This article should help you get well on your way to creating and writing just the right original wedding vow for you.

Tips For Writing Your Own Wedding Vows

  • What first attracted you to your future spouse? Was it their smile or laugh? Perhaps it was the special way she had of tipping her head when listening to you, or maybe he was a gentleman, holding the door and pulling out your chair for you. This is a great thing to put into original wedding vows - the first special thing you noticed about your loved one, and how that grew into your relationship leading to this special day.

  • Is there a special promise you would like to make, aside from the traditional ''till death do us part'? Maybe you want to promise to always enjoy the sunsets together, or something equally romantic that you have done together up to this point in your relationship.

  • Look around the rest of this website, or use its search feature, as there are numerous sources of inspiration to be found here.

  • Is there something special you both have in common, and if so, is it something that would be appropriate for including in your original wedding vows?

  • Talk with your future spouse to get some ideas as to their expectations of the ceremony. Make sure that they are of similar mind when it comes to what you would like for your unique vows. Maybe there is something special they would like to include as well.

  • If you have a favorite movie, book, poem, or scripture, these types of things are always appropriate to use alone or combined with some of your own thoughts.

  • Decide if you want to read your unique wedding vows aloud yourself, or if you would prefer the minister to read them. Make sure your partner agrees - it could be awkward for only one person to be comfortable with speaking their vows out loud.

  • If you can write your vows at least two weeks prior to the ceremony, it gives you an opportunity to go back and review them a few times. Something that sounded perfect yesterday might sound silly today.

  • Once you are confident that you have your wedding vows completely finished, put them away for a few days. Try not to over think them.

  • Practice out loud. Be sure you are comfortable with the flow and pronunciations of your words. If your original wedding vows are not a surprise for your future spouse, practice saying them together. This way, you will be relaxed and comfortable during the actual ceremony.

  • Make sure the minister is aware that you have chosen to speak some original wedding vows that you have written for each other. Most ceremonies have a certain point where the minister will prompt you to being your personalized wedding vows.

  • Save your special wedding vows. They are a great addition to your wedding scrapbook and will be a cherished memento.
