In wedding planning, there is a concept known as personalizing your wedding. This is where you choose to pick the colors, and themes that reflect your tastes and preferences as a couple. There is always a leeway to inject as much ideas as possible, if they serve to personalize the wedding and give it your identity. When it comes to the wedding vows, some couples choose to be more creative and write down their own vows! Forget the old, almost cliché like I so and so do solemnly swear to love you, in health and sickness…blah blah blah. Not that these old and tested vows are bad; just that it is possible to craft your own wedding vows and still get away with it.
Basically, writing your own vows will leave the guests awed in admiration, or even falling over themselves in laughter. Besides, it could reflect the wonderful world between you and your bride; the wording of the vows can be unique to you. The wedding vow needs to be true, sweet, and not very long. Check the below examples
- Honey, on this day I stand in front of you and the world. As I hold your hand and look into your eyes. There’s only one promise I want to make to you; that as long as I live, as long as I have breath in my nostrils. You’ll be the only woman I love, cherish, and desire to please! Nothing will ever change my love for you, my sweet darling. So help me God!
- Roses are red, violets are blue, and I love you! On this day, I declare that you’ll be the only sunshine in my world, the only rain that will water my soul! I desire nothing more but to be with you the rest of my life. You’re everything I ever wanted in a woman and as such, I’m marrying you today. I love you!
In line with being creative, you can also try and borrow your wedding vows from great lines like in movies, or from famous love stories like from Shakespeare;
- On this wonderful day that the heavens have been so gracious to accord to us, I want to assure you, oh my Juliet! I’ll be your affectionate and caring Romeo; I’ll cherish and love you dearly. Meeting you was a coincidence, loving you was a choice, and marrying you, well, marrying you is something I couldn’t resist! Till death do us part!
- A friend, a lover, a soul mate; that’s what you are to me. In my wildest dreams, never did I once imagine that a wonderful woman like you would be my future wife. And now as I stand next to you, with friends, family, and the entire world watching, I want to declare my undying love and commitment to you. May my love for you grow stronger each new day, may we grow old together in love. That’s my solemn vow to you, my one and only love.
