An Uncomplicated Approach to Writing the Perfect Wedding Vows

Vows are such a beautiful way to personalize your wedding day. However, if you’re feeling overwhelmed by the idea of putting pen to paper, know that you’re not alone. Vows don’t come easily to everyone but there are a few guidelines that you can follow to make sure your vows are perfect for your wedding day.

A 5-Step Approach to Writing Vows

  1. Express Your Love. Start by telling your partner how much you love and care for them. You may have said these three words a lot of the years but today, they’re extra-special.
  2. Add in a personal anecdote. Adding in a sweet story about your partner or your relationship is a wonderful way to look back on the past with fondness and it adds a personal touch to your vows. This doesn’t have to be anything big if you don’t want it to be. It can even be something small that you love about your partner.
  3. How have you grown? When you choose to spend your life with someone, you’re always growing and learning. Ask yourself how you have changed for the better since meeting your partner and find a way to work that into your vows.
  4. Make a promise. What are some of the things you want to do for your partner once you’re married? Adding a promise to your vows is a dedication from the heart. This doesn’t have to be several grand promises either. You know best what you could do for your partner that would mean the world to them. Your promise should always be meaningful and most importantly, realistic.
  5. Thank your partner. End your vows off by thanking your partner and tell them what you’re looking forward to about the future.

Don’t leave your vows for the last minute, start writing them as early as possible. There’s no need to dive into intimate paragraphs right away either, simply start with a few bullet points to get your thoughts together.

When you do start turning your thoughts into a speech of sorts, start with a full-length draft. Once you have this down, you can start editing your vows. Keep editing until you feel like your vows are as meaningful and impactful as possible – they really don’t need to be long to tick these boxes.

Feel free to let your personality shine through in your vows – this is between you and your partner after all.

Lastly, practice your vows before your big day, especially if you’re nervous about speaking in front of other people.

We hope these tips were helpful to you!

Destination Engagement Session: Is It Right for You?

Ocean Springs Mississippi Engagement Portraits

Destination engagement sessions have become increasingly popular in recent years and are no longer something that only the wealthy do. More and more couples are insistent on using their photographer for their sessions and are more than willing to travel to them too – the fact that they get a vacation out of it is an added bonus!

If you’ve been wondering whether a destination engagement session is right for you, here are five ways to decide:

1. Your Budget Doesn’t Allow for a Destination Wedding

If you would love a destination wedding but can’t afford it, a destination engagement session is the next best thing. This way, you get to celebrate your love in a unique way and still celebrate with friends and family back home.

2. You’re Not Connected to Your Current City

Many couples meet in cities that they’ve only recently moved to, which means it doesn’t always feel like home. If you don’t want to have your photos taken in a city that you don’t have an emotional connection to, a destination engagement session could be right for you. It doesn’t need to be international either, it could simply be a city that means something to you both.

3. Make It a Joint Celebration

Have a birthday or anniversary coming up? Why not take a trip and turn it into a joint celebration? Not only do you get to capture your engagement but your vacation destination too. Plus, you are automatically going to be more relaxed on a vacation, which always makes for better photos.

4. Capture One of Your Favorite Places

Did you and your partner travel to a specific place that you both fell in love with early on in your relationship? This is the perfect opportunity to head back there, see it again and capture memories that are even more special.

5. You Love Traveling

If you simply love traveling, this is the perfect excuse to plan your next trip!

Destination engagement sessions are very romantic and are the perfect way to celebrate your decisions to spend the rest of your lives together!
