Reading your vows can be an extremely emotional, personal aspect of your wedding day. The choice to have vows at all, to write your own vows, to read your vows in private or at the altar, and to read your own vows or have the officiant read your vows is up to the discretion of each couple.
What Style Suits You?
If you are well spoken or have a lot you’d like to say to your fiancé, writing your own vows and reading them allowed to your guests might be right for you. If you are more of a private person or are shy at all, sharing your vows privately or asking the officiant to read or prompt your vows may fit you better. Whether you choose to read your vows in front of your guest or in private can determine how in depth you go with your vows, how personal you make them, or if you’d like your officiant to read your vows instead.
It is rather common for the officiant to provide prompted vows in which the couple “repeat after me.” If you feel that this structured, traditional approach suits you and your fiancé, you can still have input on what you are vowing to.
If you are considering reading your vows aloud in front of your guests, discuss your space and the volume of you and your fiancé’s voice. If you know that your guests will not be able to hear you reading your vows, you should look into microphone and speaker options or refrain from personally reading your vows.
Taking time before your ceremony to read your vows to one another can be the beautiful, intimate moment you need before tying the knot in front of your friends and family. To read your vows to one another before your ceremony, you can choose between a first look or a first touch. A first look would allow you to sit with one another and see one another while reading your vows, but a first touch would provide you a moment to hear one another’s vows, hold your fiancé’s hand, and save the first look for the aisle.
