The wedding Vow--Giving Our Word  
Wedding Vows


A book of vows, expressions of love (love poems), and words of deep affection is available to the marrying couple. Ceremonies that have been well-received by others is also available to examine.

 

Make up your own

Composing vows is a search through our deepest feelings to the extent that the vows contain words reflecting love and commitment. “They plumb the very depth of the soul.”

 

What you say and don’t say in your vows is totally up to you and your fiancé.  If you like the traditional elements then keep them in.  A good place to start when writing your own vows is to make a list of feelings and mutual things you like.

Start with feeling words. For instance, I love my fiancé (love is a feeling word).  We respect each other. We help each other overcome problems. We’re our own best friends. We feel empty without each other. Time apart is …….

 

Other examples of feeling words: feeling of oneness, trust, commitment, compatibility, faithfulness, joy, fortitude to overcome adversities, good times, duration- (the rest of our lives), support, honor, admiration, respect, pleasure. Next, you can consider your mutual likes such as---I like to listen to music with my fiancé.  

 

Now convert your list into vows.  Remember, a vow is a solemn promise, pledge, or personal commitment. No other vows are more personal or more permanent than your wedding vows.
