We are in the final stretch before the wedding * and there is … a lot more to do. For example, write the wedding vows that will vote in our secular wedding ceremony .
So here I am faced with a blank page or a blank screen instead, trying to summarize 10 years of marriage and love in two paragraphs eloquent, moving without either falling into the marshmallow, being a modest minimum, and why not , adding a touch of humor.
Fortunately, I’m not the first to have to exercise and I found on an English website a list of 20 questions to ask when writing this kind of text. I translated from English to Mr. Lace, which must also tackle its editorial ‘but I thought it might be of interest to you.
Well, I leave you. I return to my blank screen hoping that inspiration falls on me.
- What did you think the first time you saw him? Resume early history and tells.
- When have you made e-account-that you were in love again? Do not forget that your story will be more precise, it will be touching.
- What do you have now that you did not before you recontribute you? Focus on the intangible and not material possessions, of course.
- Your way of looking at it changed the world? In what way? Life has certainly softened since you all: tell!
- What do you miss most when you’re not together. It can be a big thing, or just some banal fact of life.
- Where do you see yourself in 10 years? 20 years? 40 years? Once you dig a little further than just “happy together with a large house.”
- Is there a quote from a movie, a song or a poem that sums up your love for him / her?
- Is that part of the traditional wedding vows talking to you?
- Do you remember a funny or touching story that made you you realized his true personality?
- Do you have a tough time together has strengthened your relationship?
- What goals and values do you have in common?
- What is with him she inspires you? What you see in him it that you want to improve your home?
- What promise can you make to codify your love? You can promise to love forever as many do, and then take the dog out every morning to show him that you love (your man, not the dog).
- How will you change both? What are you planning to do in the future?
- What metaphor fit well in your love? Strong as a (safe) castle? quiet as a small mountain stream?
- Why did you get married? Why it with him?
- What makes your relationship strong? Your sense of humor shared? Your strength?
- What do you like most about the idea of your marriage? The ceremony is only the beginning: think of all the lives you have behind.
- What are your expectations for married life? Set your expectations will help him to make (and keep) promises.
- What words do you associate with love? Make a list of romantic words to avoid using the word love several times.
* I’m sure you guessed the pace slowed a little of my publications, lately … It’s hard to find time to do everything!
