Tips to Practice Your Wedding Vows

Reciting Wedding Vows like a Pro

When the time comes to recite your wedding vows, there is a chance you will start getting the public speaking fright. All eyes will be on your when you’re declaring your love and lifelong commitment to the partner. However, luckily, we have come up with a few strategies that will allow you to recite your wedding vows like a pro!

Practice, Practice and More Practice

If you have spent a good time in writing your vows, you will not want to look at them while you are reciting them to your partner, in front of all the people that are sitting. Therefore, to save yourself from this mishap, practice your wedding vows as many times as you want before the wedding. This is extremely helpful because this way you will be making eye contact with everyone and delivering it well to your partner.

Talking Clearly and Slowly

When reciting wedding vows, it is important to recite them clearly and slowly. Many times, people start talking fast because of nervousness. If you have the tendency to do so, make sure you acknowledge it while practicing so you can stop doing so. You have to make sure your partner can hear and understand everything you are saying and all the guests can hear you clearly as well.

Visualize Your Wedding Vows

This activity is helpful in order for you to see what you want the outcome to be like. Say your wedding vows in your head a couple of times and picture the outcome. Imagine your partner in front of you and say the vows, think about how your friends and family will be coming to you and congratulating you on your marriage. Visualizing a positive outcome will motivate your to prepare well for the big day.

Hear Yourself

Once you have written your wedding vows, make sure you are reading them aloud. Reciting your vows loudly for yourself will allow you to identify any errors. Once you are happy with how they are sounding aloud, you can practice in front of a close friend or a family member. This will not only boost your confidence, but you will also get another opinion on it.

Take Deep Breaths and Relax

If you are getting nervous before reciting the vows, it is important to take a deep breath so you can calm yourself. Although there will be many other people listening to your vows, they will only be directed to your partner; therefore, there is no reason to feel scared. In addition, if you say something different than what you had written, you can skip that part. Nobody knows what was written on the paper other than you, so there is no reason to freak out!


Now that you know how to recite your wedding vows like a pro, you can begin solving the other wedding issues!
