Words for Personal Wedding Vows
Would you like to make your personal wishes for your partner and your married life? Many couples make personal vows to each other in their wedding ceremony. Sometimes both parties write their ‘individual’ vows and sometimes they ‘share’ a common vow.
By far the most popular personal vows are individual vows.
Quite often the words in the vows are kept ‘secret’ from the other party until the wedding day!

Wishes and Words for Personal Wedding Vows
Wishes and words for personal wedding vows come from the heart. They express your personal hopes, dreams and values for your marriage. Choose the words that you and your partner understand and appreciate. After all, they are your words.
Have fun with your vows! Use words that you like and that you understand. The only rule to follow is: “Vows are respectful.” Apply this rule to everyone involved in your wedding ceremony and your guests. Think about the people who will hear you say your vows and ask yourself this question, “Do I want them to hear these words?” Keep the more intimate words and expressions for private conversations with your partner!
