Wedding Vow Writing Tips

Chris Easter

Writing your own wedding vows can be a great way to make your wedding day unique. But it can also be a daunting task that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Remember, this is a wedding decision that should be made jointly with your bride.

Once you’ve decided to write your own vows, here are some helpful tips to get you started. First, write a list of reasons detailing why you chose your bride-to-be. A couple of examples might be: she’s really hot (er, her beauty – inside and out), her ability to make you smile or her constant encouragement and support. Think about your favorite memory of your fiancée. Maybe it was when you first met her or when she finally agreed to go out with you. If you both have a favorite story or poem, you could use a quote from it, (although we wouldn’t recommend quoting SportsCenter). Another great resource is the Internet. Check out a variety of options and approaches and choose the right ones for you.

Once your vows are complete, it’s also a good idea to review them to make sure they’re all things you’d be comfortable declaring publicly in front of all of your friends and family.

TMR Recommendation: Our most important tip is this: Whatever you do, make sure to practice, practice, practice. You want to be able to stand up in front of your guests and your beautiful bride-to-be and sound clear and confident. Although this it’s often easier said than done, try to relax and take your time. When done right, it can make you the envy of all your friends and family.

I reached out to The Man Registry on a Saturday, just 7 days before my wedding, asking for help with my groomsmen gifts. I heard back within an hour and was able to get 8 personalized coolers in just 3 days. Ordering was easy and the quality was top notch. Would highly recommend The Man Registry!

The Man Registry is phenomenal. The customer service is exceptional - seriously. You send an e-mail and a person (a friendly one at that) actually responds within an hour. Also, gift options are diverse and plentiful so you'll be able to find what works best for you.
