The joy in eloping is being able to do things exactly how you want! When it comes to your vows, you can really make them special when you elope. You won’t have as many eyes on you as you recite them, but you may still feel some pressure to choose the perfect words. Here is how to write your own vows for your elopement.
Find a Place to Write
Expressing your love to your partner is a moment they will remember for the rest of their lives. Find a place to write that inspires you or reminds you of your love for them. It will allow the pressure to be lifted off your shoulders and truly dive into how you want to verbalize your feelings.
This gives you the time to set aside a moment of peace to write your vows. You won’t want to wait until the last minute when you feel rushed to devise a passionate vow to your partner. They deserve the time set aside to hear the love you have.
Speak with Love in Detail
The vows are personal between you and your partner! When standing across from the person you love on your elopement day, add details that personalize the message. The great part about an elopement is that you and the people closest to you have the freedom to discuss intimate details or inside jokes without feeling shy.
Remember that vows are your promises and commitment to each other when expressing your love. Although you can add fun moments into them, bring the tone back to the promises you make for each other.
Feel Free to Seek Inspiration
If you are still trying to get started, look for things that are important to your relationship. You can add a quote from your favorite movie or reference the song you love to blast in the car. These things are perfect for adding a personal touch. They reflect something you two bond over and brings the uniqueness and authenticity of your relationship to life.
Reconnect Before You Write
Research shows that eye contact can enhance connection and promote communication with others. If you need to tap into the emotions you feel for one another, try an eye-gazing exercise. Eye-gazing is a powerful tool to feel more intimate.
Sit across each other and gaze into the left eye without saying anything. You may feel flooded with emotions which is the perfect time to start your vows. It is surprising how connected you feel after simply looking into each other’s eyes.
Speak About Your Journey and Future
Most relationships go through a lot, including hardships and times you kept each other motivated or positive. Add in memories where you show you experienced moments that built you two as a couple.
Mention where you see the relationship going in the future. Provide a glimpse into your lives ahead with each other. It could be soon or years later. Express the things you are excited to experience together in life.
