Wedding Vows for Him
- Write from the heart. The best things in life come from the heart and soul, so don’t hesitate to dig deep and channel those inner emotions to write your vows, after all, it is an emotional day!
- Add your own personal touch. These are your wedding vows, so make them personal to you and your soon-to-be bride or groom! Add in details about your relationships, funny inside jokes, etc. But don’t make it too personal either! You are in front of your friends and family, so keep the juicy anecdotes for later!
- Don’t be afraid to write and rewrite. We’re not gonna lie, your first draft probably won’t be perfect, and that’s ok! (or maybe it is, and you’re just a master-wedding-vow-writer) Take it back to the drawing board and mull your thoughts over.
- Practice makes perfect. Don’t be afraid do practice your wedding vows out loud to see how they roll off the tongue (and to make sure you’ve rehearsed a little bit!). Our tip? Practice in front of a mirror, or in front of an audience of pillows or stuffed animals.
- Don’t sweat the small stuff. No one is perfect and no wedding vows are perfect either! Don’t put so much pressure on yourself that this becomes a chore, it’s just the chance to let your honey know how much this big day means to you.
