Weddings will not be complete if there is no exchange of vows of the couple. It is one of the most awaited moments in the ceremony. We have heard different wedding vows that are full of sincere promises and love that made us laugh and cry. Some still use the traditional wedding vow, but what do you think about personal vows? Should you include it in the wedding ceremony?
According to Angela Finn, founder of Angela Finn Marriage Celebrant including personal vows in your wedding creates a lot more meaning in terms of who you are, your love, your relationship, and your promises and hope for the future. She also said that the idea really is to talk about how you feel about those vows in terms of your commitment to one another.
Jo Lincolne of Big Love Weddings & Celebrations says that it all depends on you. You can have the liberty to speak up and express your feelings through words if you are comfortable in doing it and you also have the choice to quote inspirational sayings.
Joshua Lewis Berg has the same view with Jo Lincolne. According to him, he does not put pressure on his couple in writing vows. But he makes sure that he always provides worksheets, helpful guidelines, and as much personal advice as needed.
Sarah Aird, an award-winning, vivacious celebrant says that it is a must. The vows are the absolute pinnacle of a personalized, meaningful wedding ceremony. It is the couple’s chance of saying what you adore to one another in front of your families and friends and a chance to let your partner know how you would want to live together.
Personal wedding vows are a great addition to a wedding ceremony because of the emotions that it could bring everyone. It is a wonderful way to tell what is in your heart. It can give you a chance to be honest, express your feelings through words and say beautiful things to your partner. Remember that you do not need to be like Shakespeare, you just need to be sincere and true.
