Wedding Celebration Promises

The words you choose to say to each other are the true heart and soul of your ceremony , so you need to think very carefully about what you would like to say to your partner

There are any number of websites with examples for you to look at . They can be very helpful , if only to recognise what you don't want , and therefore , to focus your mind on what you really want

You can mix and match bits of several of the samples , or you can use them to create something unique for yourselves

You should aim for vows which are totally honest and straight from your heart . They should be promises you would only make to your partner , but you must also be comfortable with making them in front of your family amd friends

When you try to decide what you would like to say , think about your partner :
What is it that you love most about that person ?
What would you like your future to be together ?
What do you see as the most important aspects of your relationship ?
Which dreams do you share ?
What do you most look forward to in the years to come ?
Don't forget that a touch of humour can be very effective

You may find the following examples helpful if you want to start creating your own vows
Please feel free to mix and match them any way you like
