Should You Personalize Your Vows?

You’ve probably been to at least one wedding where the couple personalized their vows. If you’re nearing your own wedding day, you may wonder whether or not you should personalize your vows. So, should you?

This choice is purely personal and should depend on what is meaningful to both of you. If it doesn’t matter to you, but your partner would love it, then do it! Marriage is all about give and take. It’s also about showing the other person that you care for them. Make his or her wedding day special by personalizing your vows if that would be meaningful to your partner.

For you. Does it mean something to you? If personalizing your vows would make your wedding experience more meaningful, then let your partner know. Tell him or her how it would enhance the experience for you and what you think it says about your relationship together. Most partners understand this and are more than willing to personalize your vows.

It doesn’t have to be hard. Just say what you feel. You don’t need to write the whole thing either. That’s what “personalization” means. Make it special and personal by adding your own bits to the original text. It isn’t necessary to rewrite the whole thing.

Whatever you choose to do, your wedding day will be one of the most special days of your entire life. It’s a time to make a commitment to another person and to promise to stick with them, through thick and thin, forever.
