Create Your Own Vows

Choose Music That Tells Your Story

Nobody knows your story like the two of you, so why not use music to bring it to life? Have you ever considered using music to bring your relationship story to life during your wedding ceremony? Think of the songs that hold a special place in both of your hearts and how sharing them with friends and family present can add an even deeper layer of sentimentality. From the walk down the aisle to the first kiss, incorporate peaceful melodies and moving lyrics that everyone can relate to. Music has a way of immortalizing the emotions felt during one of life’s most special moments — why not use it to make yours even more memorable?

Include Special Rituals

Rituals such as sand blending, lighting candles, or handfasting can help tell your unique story as a couple during the ceremony and also give guests something tangible to remember from the special celebration. Taking time to include these symbolic activities also makes for great photo ops!

Share Memories With Guests

Stories about how things have been since meeting each other or even just funny anecdotes about those early days of dating can really help break up any feelings of tension or nerves throughout the entire event – especially if there are plenty of laughs afterwards too! Sharing these stories will also let guests get an insight into what makes you two so perfect together and will serve as reminders long after they leave.
