Your wedding vows are the most important part of your wedding. These are the words of endearment spoken from the heart to the person you will be spending your life with. Some people choose their vows from a prewritten selection while others prefer to write their own. Regardless, your vow is a special communication of your heartfelt feelings and lifelong commitment. When it comes to wedding vows, there are several important things to understand.

First, if you want your ceremony to be legally binding, your vows must be included in the ceremony as being official. While some people think of vows as mere words exchanged, the truth is that a vow is recognized as your official promise to stay married to one another. To finalize your vows, have your pastor review them and give his or her final approval. In addition, you want your wedding vows to coordinate with your wedding and flow with the overall ceremony appropriately. For example, if you are having a traditional wedding that includes a prayer or reading, you want the vows to support those important aspects and you want the style of the words to match with the style of the wedding.

If you have decided to write your own vows, start by making notes of the things you cherish in your mate. What are the special things or memories you have that could enhance your vows. Think about your future and the plans and goals you share. Next, write several drafts, focusing on words that come from the heart. Do not worry about perfection at first. After you have several options, put them aside for a few days and then revisit them to see which one fits the best. Once you have made your decision, then you can go back and correct the spelling, grammar, etc. In addition, while poetry is beautiful, if you do not normally write poetic pieces, your wedding is probably not the time to start. Your vows should be sincere but keep it real.

If you are stumped, go on the Internet or visit your local library where you will find an abundance of options. For example, Wedding Readings by Eleanor Munro, Complete Book of Wedding Vows: Hundreds of Ways to Say "I Do" by Diane Warner, or Words for your Wedding by David Glusker and Pete Misner, are all quality options. After scouring these books, you will feel much more confident about your vows, and ready for the biggest day of your life.
