I have a feeling that the next 2 and a half months are going to fly by so I’m trying to think ahead for what needs to happen for our wedding. There is a long to do list! I got overwhelmed because my fiancé and I decided that we wanted to write out own wedding vows.
After being a part of Jennie and Steve’s wedding this spring and listening to them read each other the vows they wrote, I knew that I wanted to do the same. I loved hearing the intimacy of their thoughts and how vulnerable they were in front of their family and friends.
I know I haven’t talked a ton about what we have planned for our wedding, but it’s going to be very small. We are planning on having only our parents, siblings and a few close friends. We are getting there will be about 18 people in total. (I’ll do a full wedding post soon, I promise!) Since it is going to be a small intimate group, we thought writing our own vows would be perfect.
I pushed for writing our own vow’s because I selfishly wanted to hear what my fiancé would say to me. He is man of less words, but those words are always meaningful and powerful. I can’t wait to hear what he is going to say to me. Hearing what he has to say to me is probably what I’m looking forward to most about our wedding. I know hearing him express his feelings is going to be one of the best moments of my life!
On the flip side, I am incredibly nervous and at a loss of words! I feel so much love towards him but I don’t know how I’ll ever put that into words. I’m not sure how I’ll make it into a statement that I’m going to have to read out loud! I’ve been trying to write down a few thoughts as they come to me or I find inspiration, but they aren’t good enough. As someone to tries to write a lot, this is going to be the hardest thing that I’ve ever written.
I want to know if you wrote your own. Where did you get inspiration? How long did it take you to write them? What advise do you have for us?
You can find me on…
