WEDDING VOWS FOR YOUR BIG DAY
The history of traditional wedding vows can be linked back to the manuals of the England medieval church. Upon agreement to marry, the couple promise each other to “love and cherish” one another. Being an integral part of a wedding ceremony, the exchange of wedding vows inherently is a very romantic moment and often the perfect place to express your heart felt feelings towards your fiancé. Imagine facing your stunning bride or your suave groom, affirming your love in front of all family and friends at wedding ceremony. With your wedding videography and photography crew documenting every single word and moment, does this thought above make you nervous and sweat?
BE UNIQUE, BE CREATIVE
The fact that you are standing in front of each other, deeply locked with each other’s’ gaze and declaring these vows meant that he or she chose you. There should be no worry of rejection or mockery because you belong to each other and decided to enter into a covenant to remain exclusive to each other! This is your soul mate, your friend, your lover and he/ she reciprocate your love. Do not be afraid to sound cheesy or as mushy as you want because as long as it comes from the heart, he/ she will surely appreciate it and without a doubt reciprocate with the same intensity. For those who are having a tad of trouble putting your thoughts into words and struggling with conveying these emotions verbally, you can use some help to get this right. Everything that happens between both of you did not happen overnight. There is history behind this faithful day. Use the unique, beautiful story that led to this extraordinary moment and important day! Utilise every single memory that you can remember to conjure up the love you feel, use some whimsical or touching situations that you have shared together. Relive those days where you first met, the place and situation, all these could be used to recreate the heartwarming sensation when both of you decide to give each other a chance. Is there also a song that is unique to your relationship or even a poem where you serenade her to be your girl? All these are powerful ‘weapon’ to use in your wedding vows! Its always good to look back on the journey you have began, holding each other’s hand, and then comment on the one you are about to embark from this day forward.
