I encourage my MPV couples to write letters to each other, especially if they are not having custom vows. This gives you a chance to put in your own words how your future Mr. or Mrs. makes you feel & how excited you are to start this new adventure with them.
It is also the best soundtrack for your wedding film! I love using these sweet words couples write to each other as the basis of their film, as it further personalizes it. What better way to remember the emotions and feelings you had than to hear them as you read the letter you wrote or received?
Maybe you’re nervous about writing a letter because you feel like you don’t have the “right” words to say. Let me tell you, the right words are whatever you want to say to your person!
You don’t have to be a creative writing expert or poet to write a great letter.
2) Thank them for what they’ve done for you, and remind them that you’ll always be there for them.⠀Is this person the first one you think of as soon as something fun or fantastic happens? Can you always count on their shoulder in times of need? Let them know!
3) Ease any fears they may have about the wedding day..as Carrie Bradshaw & Mr. Big once said..It’s just you & me, baby!”⠀This will totally build up the fun anticipation they have to see you. Feel free to mention how excited you are about the honeymoon as well.. 😉
4) Tell them the thing you are most looking forward to about being married to them, that will make their day & make it that much sweeter when you two finally see each other and it becomes real. A great way to get started with this is “when I look into our future, I see…”⠀
5) Write a short prayer for them, for you both…welcoming Christ into your marriage before it even begins. You can’t go wrong with that. If you aren’t religious, write out your wishes for you two, for your future. ⠀See? That wasn’t so hard! One last thing I’d encourage you to do is write out your note before the wedding day, then write a final draft first thing that morning. That way you can make sure they get it as they’re getting ready and have plenty of time to read it.
Happy writing, y’all!!⠀
