One of the most romantic moments in any wedding is the part where the couple will exchange their vows. These are words that express intent and a promise. Wedding vows allow you to express how you intend to relate to one another, how you want to spend your lives together, and what your marriage means to you.

Here are 5 tips to write powerful vows.

Affirm your love.

Love is the bond that joins you together; it’s why you want to get married in the first place. So, when you are writing vows, be sure to declare your love. Tell your spouse-to-be how much they mean to you. Say how you fell in love with them and the ways in which they add meaning to your life. Adding a personal story about how you first met or how your heart started beating for them is a great starting point.

Talk about your promises.

This is an important part of your wedding vows: telling your partner that you will love, honor, and cherish them for the rest of your lives. Making a promise to be there for them through thick and thin. This is important because all marriages involve highs and lows, so it’s great to communicate your desire to be there for them even when times are tough.

Add a little humour.

We understand that some vows can be clichè, so try and make your wedding vows unique and personal. It doesn’t have to be too serious, so adding a funny line or two could be a sweet touch. But avoid saying anything that will humiliate your partner. Keep it creative and humorous, but meaningful.

Get inspiration.

It’s fine to quote somebody else’s words, so when writing vows, try to draw inspiration from a poem, a love song, or a romantic movie.

Ask others for support.

Your marriage is not just about you and your partner. Your family and friends are now in the mix. They’re there not just to witness your wedding, but also to support you when you need help. Therefore, be sure to incorporate them in your wedding vows.

So you can’t have the wedding you want unless you know what you want, right?

And even if you THINK you know what that is, it’s unlikely that you and your partner have really, truly uncovered it (because it’s usually hidden beneath a whole lot of confusing opinions, rules, fears and worries).

So we thought it might help if we showed you how uncover what perfect means to you (the results may surprise you!), help you to create your very own, personalised wedding ‘blueprint’,  and then get you on track to actually making it happen.
