Ironically, one of the most neglected areas in wedding planning is the actual wedding itself: the ceremony, where the magic happens.
For all the hullaballoo that we go through planning weddings, you’d be surprised at how many couples neglect to focus on the details of the ceremony, including wedding vows.
It can be daunting thinking about standing in front of a crowd of people, making declarations of love, especially for people who are introverted or aren’t that confident when it comes to public speaking.
But it doesn’t have to be challenging for you. With a little preparation and forethought, you can create an emotional ceremony that truly reflects who you are as a couple. Including humour and light-hearted moments will add a personal touch, too.
How to write wedding vows.
When it comes to the content of the ceremony, what you want to say to the person you are going to marry, it can sometimes be hard to put into words that you are comfortable saying in front of a large group of people. Some people may believe it’s just easier using a script because they are concerned with being overly emotional or getting caught up in their feels.
I think that’s a real shame.
What other time will we stand in front of the most special and important people in our lives and be truly honest about committing to another person, the person that we love and respect? The person that puts up with our shit and we put up with theirs.
