Write Your Own Wedding Ceremony Reading

Bringing personality into your ceremony is a lovely way to tell everyone just how much you adore and appreciate your other half. We wrote our own vows for our wedding (template here) and not only was it a wonderful thing to share with our friends and family on the day, it was a really lovely process to put together. You have to think deeply about your other half, it's a really cathartic and wholesome experience.

Here are some tips to help you get started:

  1. Start with a Personal Reflection: Take a moment to reflect on your feelings for your partner and what makes your love unique. Write down your thoughts and emotions.

  2. Use Sensory Details: Use sensory details to bring your poem to life and make it more vivid and memorable. Describe how your partner looks, smells, sounds, feels, and tastes.

  3. Be Specific: Be specific and personal when expressing your feelings in your poem. Use specific memories, moments, and details to illustrate your love and appreciation for your partner.

  4. Play with Structure: Experiment with different structures and formats for your poem. You can write in a traditional format, such as a sonnet or rhyming couplet, or try a more modern, free-form approach.

  5. Use Metaphors and Similes: Metaphors and similes can help convey your emotions and feelings in a creative and memorable way. Think about using comparisons to everyday objects, nature, or other experiences to express your love.

  6. Read and Revise: Once you have a draft of your poem, read it over and make any revisions or changes that you feel will improve it. Consider getting feedback from others, such as friends or family members, to help you refine your poem.

  7. Share Your Love: Finally, don't be afraid to share your love poem with your partner. Whether it's in a card, a letter, or during a special moment, your words will be a cherished and personal expression of your love.
