Make Your Wedding Vows Your Own

Traditional or Modern Marriage Vows

Marriage vows are the central part of your wedding day and are a public declaration of your love for your partner. Vows are a promise that you make to each other and every religion has their own version of these. In the UK It’s normal for the groom to say his vows first and then the bride but these can be said simultaneously or in reverse order. Vintage style wedding dresses fit with every style of wedding. If you are having traditional wedding vows then why not wow your guests with a vintage style wedding dress.

Traditional Vows

Traditional vows come from medieval times and form part of a prayer that was recited. We now use them to declare intent to a partner in a marriage ceremony. Most people can recite at least part of these vows, regardless of whether they are married or not. Some couples don’t give them a second thought and just recite them, others change some of the vows to make them more personal.

“For better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health”

These classic and religious wedding vows are a great starting point if you wanted to craft your own. There is lots of inspiration over on Cutting Edge Brides Pinterest boards for ways to personalise your wedding vows.

Personalised Vows

There are lots of ways that you can add your own interpretation on the vows. It’s a great way to make the promise seem more personal to you and your loved one.

If you are writing your own vows first read up on lots of other vows to see if there is any aspects you want to incorporate into yours. Decide between yourselves the tone and meaning behind what you intend to say.

Don’t make it too cliched though or too niche as you are reading them in front of your guests and officiants.

Write your vows down and keep them to a couple of minutes at most. Remember to practice them and take a copy of your vows with you.
