If you are one of those intending couples who keep thinking: how to write my vows, then you have come to the right place. While wedding vows are a very private thing indeed, it is no sin to seek out help writing wedding vows. Below is a simple vows template that would be quite useful in writing even the most intimate vows.

  1. Why: Whether you’re writing long or short vows, it’s nice, to begin with writing what marriage means to you and why. E.g.

    “I, Jessy, take you, Timothy, to be my husband.” You and you alone make me feel that I am alive. Other men it is said to have seen angels, but I have seen thee and thou art enough.” – George Moore”

  2. Look back: Take a look back into your relationship and add some sentimental memory you both share. If possible, you can add a short wedding poem or two. E.g.

    “I know that this is true because the minute you walked into that Seafood Restaurant on my birthday, I couldn’t take my eyes off you, and I haven’t been able to ever since.”

  3. Mention qualities: Don’t forget to mention some of the lovely qualities that drew you to your partner, endearing you to them, enough to seek a life together. E.g.

    “There are one too many qualities you have that I cannot bear to live without. You are extremely thoughtful and clear-headed. You are the most optimistic person I know, and you bear my pessimism always with grace. You are also extremely faithful and loving. I try every day to be the woman you deserve.”

  4. Why, again: This time, in writing only the sweetest vows, include a line on why you love your partner. E.g.

    “I love you because you are the brightest light in my day. Despite our differences, you choose to see the best in me always. You are my best friend and love of my life.”

  5. Make your vow: make your vow, your promise, your pledge in the way only you can, to your love, your partner, your spouse. E.g.

    “I promise faithfulness and patience, respect and lightheartedness, attentiveness and self-improvement. I will celebrate your triumphs, and love you all the more for your failures.”

Tips for Writing Vows For Her

Even with the help of an outline, it’s always good to have tips for writing wedding ceremony vows handy to help with the process. Being arguably the most important part of the wedding, you should want your words to be perfection. Below is a list you would like to keep in mind.

  • Be originally you. Your partner knows you and can tell when the words coming out of your mouth are not your own. Even if you perhaps copied them off the internet, make them your own before you say them. When you make promise wedding vows you’re going to want to keep them.
  • Be realistic. It’s good to be optimistic with your vows, but also great to be practical and realistic. In writing groom vows you do not want to make promises that you cannot live up to.
  • Stay simple. The best vows to the husband are simple and clear. These are easier to remember and even easier to say, especially for anyone with some form of stage fright. You can include a most romantic quote if you have one that’s dear to you.
  • Agree with your partner and officiant, or not. Decide earlier on if you want to share your vows with your partner when writing them. If you decide to, you can also share with the wedding officiant and seek their opinion. You could also decide to keep the details of your vows to yourself until your special day.
  • Chill out. Calm your nerves and chill out. This will help you speak clearly and confidently to your partner. Remember to keep your vows short, at least under a few minutes. While your vows are very important, you want them to be memorable and a source of joy, not nerves.
