Planning your Vows

Find a spot where you and your fiance can sit and talk about what you would like in your ceremony. think of your times together already and of the special moments that you have shared. You will have already accumulated many memories together that you would like to share with your friends and other guests. You know that you love each other and why you are getting married, so you could write what you love about each other.


There are ways you can remember the life you have spent together already by going over old photos, talking to others about some of the times spent with them that they remember about you. You might have spent time alone sitting side by side each reading a book quietly accepting the tranquility of the moment and allow your partner that quiet time as well.
