How To Say, "I Do"...

 Wedding planning and celebrations can last months, but the actual unity of the bride and groom only lasts a matter of minutes. Making those precious minutes count can be tricky, as there are countless routes to take while saying “I do”.

            The most traditional route that most couples choose to take is to have the officiant read both the bride and grooms prepared vows. These may be prepared with the help of one another, or done separately. If you’re having a more traditional wedding, this is a great incorporation of that theme. This form of reading of the vows is a very sacred act, especially if you are personally close with your officiant.

            Another vow option is to write them with your partner prior to the big day. Many brides don’t want any ‘wedding day surprises’, and enjoy being as prepared as possible for what’s to come. If this is you, collaborating with your husband-to-be is a safe, while still special route to take. Writing the words that will officially ‘tie the knot’ with your soon to be spouse is a celebration in itself. Taking part in this together will make the excitement feel very real, and bond you and your partner even closer!

            An alternative to the typical vow option is to surprise one another on the big day. There is something almost mystical about the anticipation of hearing what your bride/groom has prepared for you. Before you begin writing, agreeing on an estimated length with your significant other is a great trick. With the agreed upon length, there won’t be any uncertainty if one persons vows are drastically longer or shorter than the others. Knowing that your life-partner wrote their vows from their heart alone is endearing, and magical. If you’re hoping for spontaneity, this is a special and memorable route to take.

            Tying the knot can be a daunting step to take, but knowing that there are many options in making it as comfortable as possible is reassuring. There is no wrong option, as whichever path you choose is the right one for you and your loved one!
