Having some trouble writing your wedding vows? Take a look at some examples to ease your stress!

Wedding vows are among the most important promises we make in life – and that actually is one of the reasons many couples feel that writing them down is one of the most difficult parts about their wedding. If you are having trouble writing your wedding vows, take a look at the following ideas and inspire yourself!

In most of the Christian faiths, the wedding vows are almost the same. For example, the Protestant vow sounds something like this: "I, [speaker's name], take you, [partner's name] for my lawful [wife/husband], to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death do us part, according to God's holy ordinance; and therefore I pledge thee my faith."

In the Unitarian/Universalist Church, the vows very frequently sound like this: “With this ring, I wed you, and pledge you my love, now and forever."

In other religions, the vows may be slightly different though. For instance, the Hindu vows sounds something like this: "Let us take the fourth step, to acquire knowledge, happiness, and harmony by mutual love and trust. Finally, let us take the seventh step and become true companions and remain lifelong partners by this wedlock."

In Islam, both the bride and the groom share vows. The bride says: "I, [bride's name], offer you myself in marriage in accordance with the instructions of the Holy Qur"an and the Holy Prophet, peace and blessing be upon Him. I pledge, in honesty and with sincerity, to be for you an obedient and faithful wife." Once she says this, the groom will follow with his vow: "I pledge, in honesty and sincerity, to be for you a faithful and helpful husband."

Most of the non-religious wedding ceremony vows are actually inspired by the religious ones. However, the bride and groom feel free to add/remove whatever they think is more suitable for their particular love story. Keep in mind that the most important thing about your wedding vow is for it to be honest and genuine – and not necessarily for it to be beautifully “ornate” with words.

Weddings can cause a lot of stress, but here are the top things you should and shouldn't worry about for your big day!

Scientists say that getting married is one of the most stressful events in a person’s life. Not only does this moment change everything in your life, but planning for the Big Day can be at least equally stressful. 

Of course, you will stress out over a lot of things. From the napkins on the table to the bouquet and to the wedding cake, every detail can feel like it bears a tremendous importance for the success of the Big Day. And yet, there are things it’s definitely not worth stressing about. Here are some of the most commonly encountered ones: 

The wedding dress. Sure, we all know that a bride wants to look stunning on her wedding day – and that’s perfectly natural – but you should definitely not stress over choosing it as fast as possible. The relationship between a bride and her perfect dress is very much like a love story – so you should not rush into the first dress that… somewhat fits you. Take your time, shop around, try on as many gowns as you want and settle on that which feels right. 

Logistics. While you should pay attention to how you arrange the chairs and the tables, you shouldn't stress over their design too much. Even the simplest chairs and tables can be decorated to look great! 

Rain. If you want to have an outdoor wedding, the last thing you want to pray for before the Big Day is that it doesn’t rain. Instead of worrying about it, spend some extra money and book a “back-up venue” for a rainy day. That will be worth it!

If you want to avoid stressing over every single detail your wedding is comprised of, call Wedding Planner 808. Our passion for beautiful weddings, our dedication and our experience will wipe out every trace of stress and anxiety in your life as bride and groom-to-be!

Pets are an important part of our lives, they should be included in our weddings too!

Your wedding is a huge event in your life so you will want everyone important to be there – and this includes your pets too. How can you include your pet in the Big Day? Believe it or not, there are many amazing ideas when it comes to this so do make sure to read on and inspire yourself.

Dress him/her up and include your pet in the photo session. There are hundreds of way you can dress your pet up for the celebration. If you want him/her to be fully formal, there are a lot of tuxedoes and “dresses” he/she can wear for the photos. However, a simple bowtie or a wreath made out of your wedding flowers will look amazing too – and it will definitely be comfortable for your little furry friend regardless of the weather outside!

If your pet doesn’t feel great wearing clothes or wreaths, you don’t have to “torment” him/her too much. He/she can wear something as simple as a celebratory leash made out of silk or any other beautiful fabric.

Do you have an unconventional pet? He/she can attend your wedding too! A good photographer will know how to include your “speechless” friend in the wedding photos. From pigs to horses and parrots, all pets are welcome to be part of your Big Day!

Your pet can also be actively involved in the wedding. He/she can be your ring bearer or your flower girl, for example! Attach a small pillow with the rings to your dog’s back or a small basket of flowers and he/she will play his/her role perfectly!
