Writing your own vows are a great way to really personalize your ceremony for your Gulf Shores beach wedding! You certainly do not have to but some do. You can write them in a little note book and read them to your groom or spouse. It will be something that you will cherish for a lifetime. We can do the traditional vows along with your vows or we could do just your vows or just ours. It is important when you are writing your vows however to have something that you are vowing to do. Sometimes it is is easy to just say how much you love your spouse and forget that the vows are supposed to be promising something. Marriage is a covenant and your vows should reflect the covenant that you are making. What are you promising in your vows? Here is an idea below.
I am reminded of James 1:17 Where it says that every good and perfect gift comes from above.
(Name) you are truly a Gift from God and I promise to spend the rest of my life treating you as such.
I will cherish you always and never take you for granted.
I will lead you and guide you as Christ leads me.
I will follow His teachings and obey His commands.
I will lead by example, with patience, and with understanding.
I will be slow to anger, and quick to listen.
I will be a strong spiritual leader in our home through good times and bad, in joy and in sorrow.
I will love you and be faithful to you alone from this day forward until God calls us home.
This is my solemn pledge to you and to God.
Have fun! Writing your vows are fun. Don’t worry about what everyone will think. Your vows are for your Bride or Groom. Remember you can just use our traditional vows if you don’t want to bother with writing your own. Most use the vows our Minister provides. See you soon!
