How to write good wedding vows?

Updated: Aug 8, 2021

For people who are not used to articulating their feelings, saying them out loud can be difficult. Communicating why you want to marry the person you love is the perfect opportunity to open your heart and say what you've always felt, what you hope, these are our tips:

Tip # 1: think about what you have lived with your partner, think about the happiest moments, maybe talk about that trip you made together, about the details that made you connect and fall in love, when you met him-her and the future moments that you imagine together.

Tip # 2: Sometimes the best words have already been said by someone else. Do you read poetry?

One we like by Rumi, goes like this;

"Love is foolish, it does not reason.

Reason seeks a benefit.

Love declares itself consuming itself, unmoved.

However, in the midst of suffering, love advances like a mill wheel, simple and without surface.

Or ¨Sonet XVII: I don't love you¨ by Pablo Neruda¨

¨I do not love you as you were pink of salt, topazor arrow of carnations that spread fire:I love you as certain dark things are loved, secretly, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you like the plant that does not bloom and bearswithin itself, hidden, the light of those flowers,and thanks to your love lives dark in my body the tight scent that rose from the earth.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where,I love you directly without problems or pride:I love you like that because I don't know how to love in another way, ¨

Tip # 3: think about what love means to you, what is my way of loving?, if you've read the book the five languages of love, maybe you know that different people like to love and be loved in different ways. Maybe your way of loving is listening to them, maybe your way of loving is being with them, describe how you want to love them and why you choose them,

Writing vows doesn't have to be too complicated, just set time aside and let the words flow for you.

Thank you very much for reading, we hope these tips have helped you and remember that if you are looking for the best wedding photography and cinematography in Mexico, at Wedding Media, we do it with love.
