When two people genuinely love each other, they want to express this glorious feeling in any possible manner. One of the most romantic methods of doing this is writing your own wedding vows. This little change to the ceremony will make the happiest day of your life even more special.

Non traditional wedding vows obey no rules, but the following tips should help you write the most beautiful and sincere special words for your wedding ceremony:

  • Settle all the formalities.
    You need to be sure that there will be no problems with adding this little bit of customization as some formal ceremonies require the use of special words. To avoid any issues with Christian vows, discuss your personalized wording with the minister before the ceremony.
  • Three essentials of a wedding vow: person, promise, and marriage.
    Wedding vows wording varies greatly, but there are three vital things that need to be mentioned in your pledge of eternal love. The first is the person you give your heart to and what exactly he or she means to you. The second is the actual vow you make to this special person. The third is what marriage is to you and how you see your future together.
  • Ask for expert advice.
    Naturally, you want to write your wedding vows yourself, but not everyone has a talent for this kind of thing. You shouldn’t be ashamed to ask for help with this task. There are many authors and even poets who can work with you. These professionals will guide you and shape your heartfelt ramblings into truly beautiful and poetic wedding vows.

There is one of the most shining example of non-traditional vows:

I love you. Today is a very special day. 


Long ago you were just a dream and a prayer.


Thank you for being what you are to me.


With our future as bright as the promises of God,


I will care for you, honor and protect you.


I lay down my life for you my friend and my love.

So it can be written in a form of prayer, verse, appeal or complete improvisation. There is no bounds in composing such form of a wedding vow so we recommend you to create it together by yourselves and for yourselves and this vow would be a reminder of a mental collaboration of two close souls.
