Time for some vows that wow

Time for some vows that wow

Hey there, awesome couples!
It’s your friendly (and cheeky) celebrant, Kate from Down South Ceremony, here to chat about one of the most exciting parts of your wedding – the vows!

Now, I totally get it – wedding vows can be a bit of a mystery, especially if you’ve never been married before or been to a civil ceremony. But don’t worry, I’ve got your back! Let’s break it down in a fun and easy way.

So, what exactly are wedding vows? Well, think of them as those super special promises you make to each other on your big day. They’re like your own personal love story, all wrapped up in a few heartfelt words.

In Australia, there are some legal vows that you’ve gotta say during your ceremony. It’s like the official stuff that makes you officially married – pretty cool, right? You’ll each say something like, “I call upon the persons here present to witness that I, [your full legal name], take you, [partner’s full legal name], to be my lawful wedded [husband/wife/spouse/partner ].” It’s all part of the Marriage Act 1961, so you know it’s legit!

But here’s where it gets really fun – the personal vows! This is your chance to get creative and share some extra special promises with your partner. You can talk about how much you love each other, your favourite memories together, and even some of those quirky habits that make you smile. You can also drop the “full legal name” for this bit and call each other by nicknames, preferred names or terms of affection.

Here are some examples to get those creative juices flowing:

  • Romantic Vows: “Being with you is a privilege, and I promise to laugh hysterically with you and comfort you through it all.”
  • Funny Vows: “I promise to always improve the lyrics of your favourite songs and creatively identify the actors on TV – oh, and maybe make you bagels one day!”
  • Traditional Vows: “I promise to love, cherish, and respect you always, no matter what life throws our way.”

And hey, if you want to keep your vows a surprise from each other until the big day, I’ve got you covered! As your celebrant, I can help you write your vows and keep them under wraps until you say “I do.”

So, whether you’re going for romantic, funny, or traditional vows, remember – there are no rules! It’s all about expressing your love in a way that feels right for you as a couple.

Oh, and one last thing – the “asking” part! It’s a traditional part of the ceremony where you both say “I do” to each other’s promises. Super cute, right?

Alright, that’s a wrap on wedding vows 101! Remember, I’m here to help make your ceremony as unique and awesome as your love story. So let’s get creative and make some magic happen on your big day!
