You’ve decided to write your own wedding vows, but you are quickly regretting that decision as you sit at your kitchen table contemplating how to start. This is not uncommon, just a little thing we call writer’s block. But let’s face it; it’s difficult to write about this person you love and why you chose to spend the rest of your life with them. Your mind fills with hundreds of memories and emotions that you’ve had together, but you are unsure which ones to write about. If you follow these simple steps, you’ll be done with your vows in no time!
During this exercise, you’ll be creating an outline of memories. This will help you organize all of your ideas so you can choose which ones to include in your wedding vows.
Look at all you’ve written down! Your writer’s block is cured. You now have so many ideas to work with when writing your vows. From the list, choose which memories you want to write about. These are your wedding vows, and they can be as long as you want.
After writing your vows, you now have a list of memories that you and your significant other shared together. Some couples create a book of memories, while others use these ideas to write a speech at their wedding reception. You can use this list for that speech as well. Talk to the NJ DJ that you booked for the wedding reception and let them know that you want to say a speech. The NJ wedding DJ will announce that the bride and groom want to say a few words. You can also choose a number of songs to play during the speech. Talk to your NJ DJ beforehand so you can properly plan this out. At Gemini DJs, our NJ DJs will provide you with a list of songs that are appropriate for the occasion.
