Writing Your Vows 101
Hi guys and gals! We always have questions about writing your vows - when you should write them, where you should write them, how to start, whether to add a joke? Well we're here to give you our KMW Expertise on Writing Your Wedding Vows!
We'll make it short and sweet for ya!
Tip #1. Don't google your vows! Everything you need is right in front of you and inside of your heart. Google knows a lot I have to admit, but it doesn't know how you're feeling about the person beside you.
Tip #2. Do not, I repeat DO NOT wait until the night before or the day of to write your vows! Believe it or not, we get a lot of couples that think getting ready or about to leave to go take their pictures is a good time to start writing their wedding vows.
Tip #3. Cut out the cliches and put something funny or an inside joke that is sure to make them giggle / cry. A good balance is some mushy gushy, some funny parts, a little shout out section to the family and of course, romance.
Tip #4. Depending on your comfort zone, maybe exchanging vows in private, writing each other a letter is a better idea than spilling your guts infant of everyone at the ceremony. Everyone is different, do what feels right and special to you and your partner.
Tip #5. Keep them! Whether typed out or written on an old napkin - you'll want to look back and remember the sweet words you exchanged to each other that day. Also, if you renew your vows later on in life, that would be amazing to re-read to each other (just an idea!)
Okay my job here is done - now go write your vows!
