13 Tips for Writing Original Wedding Vows:

婚禮誓言的 13 個祕訣

If you’ve decided to stray from tradition and write your own vows, you may be suffering from the worst kind of writer’s block. Standing in front of a crowd is nerve-racking enough, and now you’re required to share your feelings? I mean, this is the person you’re going to spend the rest of your life with. This is the moment you get to profess your love to them in front of your closest family and friends. This may be the biggest day of your entire life. What will you say to seal the deal? What words will make your fiancé cry, laugh, and believe your love is forever? I’m sorry—I’m not being helpful. Here’s the thing: No matter what you say in those few precious minutes, the end result will be the same. You will have made a promise to love and cherish your fiancé forever—and you will be married. That being said, if you want to get it just right…follow my advice.

如果你已經決定要自己寫婚禮誓言,你可能正卡在研讀一些艱澀的文學書,或是正在擔心在眾人面前無法分享自己的心情而傷腦筋中。

這個人是要與你共度後半生的,這時刻是你站在你的愛和他親友面前的,這天可能是你一生中最重要的一天,你要說什麼才能讓一切很美好?什麼樣的字會讓你的另一半感動到哭、笑,然後相信你那強大無比的愛?

喔不好意思,我可能讓你更緊張了。

事情是這樣的,不管你在婚禮上那寶貴的幾分鐘說了什麼,最後的結果都會是一樣的。你會要為了你的愛而做出承諾,然後珍惜你與另一半那永遠的婚姻,但話雖如此,如果你想要把誓言寫好,不妨聽聽我的建議,首先可以參考一些關於愛的詞句,然後再跟著我的13個祕訣一起寫你的結婚誓言。

1. Settle on a format and tone with your fiancé.

You don’t want to follow 2 minutes of jokes from your man with 5 minutes of tear-jerking poetry. Discuss the overall tone you want your words to have, as well as a length you both can handle.

1.確定主軸並主要敘述你與另一半
你不會想要用兩分鐘的笑話搭配你的另一半說了五分鐘催淚的詩句,所以與另一半討論一下大致的感覺,還有討論一下誓言的長度。

2. Reflect on your relationship.

Before you pick up that pen, look back on your relationship. What brought you to this moment? When did you know they were ‘the one?’ When did you first start falling in love? What memories stand out? A bit of reflection can lead to a lot of writing.

2. 回想一下你們的關係
在你動筆之前,試著回想一下你們的關係,為什麼會想要結婚,什麼時候你開始確定他是你的另一半?什麼時候你開始感到愛?
在回想的時候什麼樣的畫面浮現?試著從回想帶著你開始寫誓詞。

3. Determine your definition of “love” and “marriage.”

Everyone has a different image when they picture the perfect marriage. How do you see it? What will your spouse do for you and what will you do for your spouse? Think about the relationships you admire and how you can use them to influence your own. Remember that this is your promise—there’s no wrong answer.

3. 確定你對於“愛”和“婚禮”的定義
每個人對於完美的婚姻都有不同的想法,你怎麼看呢?你的另一半會怎麼做,你又會對另一半做什麼呢?試想一個屬於你的理想婚禮,然後做出承諾。

4. Call out the best in them.

If you’re not sure where to start, why not with compliments? Tell them why you love them, what makes them special, and the qualities they posess that make ‘forever’ possible.

4. 點出優點
如果你不知道要從哪裡開始,何不從誇獎開始?告訴大家為什麼你愛她,為什麼他對你特別?有什麼特質讓你想要永遠的跟他在一起?

5. Think in terms of promises.

Be honest with them—what can you promise them or at least say you’ll strive for? That may be standing by them through thick and thin, remembering to make their coffee in the morning or never to play the song they hate, or to love them even when you may not like them.

5. 做出承諾
誠實地說出你能做出的承諾,或至少說出你可以努力做到的事,可以從一些就在你身邊發生的事情說起,記得幫他泡杯早餐咖啡或是不播放對方討厭的歌,又或是在他做出你不喜歡的事時還會愛著他。

6. Leave out any embarrassing, TMI details.

Remember that you’ll be in front of a crowd—don’t say anything you’ll regret. Leave those TMI details for later.

6. 不要說出會讓人尷尬的話
記得,你在講結婚誓言時你是站在眾人面前,不要說任何你會後悔的話,太多私密細節留著你們以後再說。

7. Don’t let quotes and poems overpower your own meaningful words.

Find one or two that represent your own amazing love and use them as a starting point. Your words will mean far more to your partner than someone else’s.

7. 不要讓愛情詩句佔據你的字句
之所以會要你們先看些愛情詩句是有原因的,但是不要讓他們佔滿你3分鐘的誓言,找出一兩個代表你強大的愛的字句當作引言,你的字對伴侶來說比其他字句都重要。

8. Keep it short and sweet.

2-3 minutes is good length to go for. If you figure out how to say it all in just a few words, that’s fine too.

8. 保持精簡動人
2-3分鐘這誓言剛剛好,如果你知道如何更簡短的表現,那也沒有關係。

9. Remember the letter.

Most couples give each other a wedding gift along with a hand-written letter. If your vows get too lengthy, add some of those wonderful words to your letter. It’s also the place for those TMI details you can’t help but share.

9. 記住你還可以寫信
很多新人會在結婚前給對方禮物並附上手寫的信,如果你的誓言太長,可以留一些寫在信裡,那些較私密的訊息也可以寫在信中。

10. Give yourself time.

A lot of people like to start writing the night before (or even the day of), but if you’re nervous I recommend giving yourself a little more time.

10. 留些時間給自己
很多人喜歡在婚前一晚寫誓言(甚至結婚當天),但是如果你是很緊張的人,我建議你留多一點時間給自己。

11. Practice.

Give yourself some time to practice them too! Say them out loud, please.

11. 練習
給自己一些時間來練習,大聲的練習。

12. Read them to each other beforehand.

This is a tip I like to stress. If you’re concerned you may ugly-cry or get extremely nervous, why not share your promises before the big day? It’ll be just as meaningful, but without all the pressure.

12. 唸給對方聽
我很喜歡分享這個小秘訣,如果你擔心結婚當天聽到誓言會讓自己哭得很醜,或是怕當天會太緊張,為什麼不先與你的另一半在婚禮節先分享誓言?一樣會會很有意義,只是少了那些壓力。

13. Save a copy.

You’ll thank me later.

13. 留下備份
你會感謝我的。

從相識的年份、一起旅行過的國家,到創意桌遊、水瓶等,都是可以拿來當婚禮上的桌卡元素。推薦給想要讓賓客眼前一亮的妳!

1.用小時候回憶做桌卡

有對有創意的新人,將他們的桌次以小時候最愛的卡同人物命名。當然也可以用小時候最愛的書,或是兩個人的共同點記憶玩具當作主題桌卡。

1.Childhood Heroes

This crafty couple got creative with their decor including these cute-as-a-button table names. Tables were called after childhood cartoon favourites such as Care Bears and Transformers but you could use lots of other common interests - footie teams or your fave books or cocktails for instance.

2.愛的錄音

將兩個人最喜歡的歌,或是兩個人最愛的樂團當做桌次主題也很可以。

2.Record Love

Embrace your love of music by dedicating your table names to your favourite musicians. If you're looking to go all out with the music theme, you could opt for records like so! You can use everything from bands to songs and albums.

3.年份桌卡

如果你想要比較個人專屬感的婚禮,可以將桌次的名字用小時候的照片做桌次主題。

3.Reeling in the Years

If you're looking to get those personal touches in to your decor, this is a really sweet way to do it! Create table names by using photographs that correspond to a certain age or year – it give guests a bit of an insight in your younger years and a bit of a laugh if the photos are of the awkward variety!

4.歲數桌卡

跟上一個相同Idea,這些照片不僅可以讓賓客更多話題,也可以讓賓客更認識新人。

4.Childhood Cuties

Similar to the last idea, these adorable table numbers combine childhood pictures of the newlyweds this time at a particular age - personal and a great conversation starter.

5.旅遊過的地點

如果常出去旅遊的新人可以將旅遊景點或明信片當做桌次卡。如果是以旅遊為婚禮主題的人,很適合用這個idea

5.Jet Setters

Another lovely idea is to incorporate postcards of places you have been together! Backpacked South East Asia, holidayed in sunny hotspots or road tripped USA? Include pictures, place names or even postcards of places you’ve been to make it more personal, especially if you’re planning a bit of a travel themed wedding bash.

6.數字記憶點

如果想保持數字的理性,也沒有特別的主題,還是可以做一點有趣的桌卡變化。加入一些關於時間數字的兩個人的故事:幸運數字、認識的時間、求婚的日子等,是個很棒的方式讓賓客更知道你們的愛情。

6.Milestones & Memories

If you want order and to make things easy on your guests, there's nothing to say you can’t use numbers but you can still include some degree of sentiment. We adore what this couple have done, giving each number a meaning significant to their story such as a special date, event or even random ideas like their lucky numbers. It’s a great way to share interesting facts with your guests and it will get plenty of aww’s!

7.最愛的電影

關於電影主題的婚禮可以加入最愛的電影名稱(或是最愛的影集也可以)如果想要讓桌卡更可愛,也可以加入電影形象小插圖。

7.Movie Buffs

Bit of a movie buff? Name your tables after your favourite films (or after your favourite TV shows either!). If you want to jazz them up you could even include fun iconic images from the films.

8.門票桌卡

如果你們是個愛參加演唱會或球賽的情侶,可以用門票當作主題,讓賓客們知道更多你們的興趣。

有沒有一些對你們有意義的特別地點呢?認識的夜店、第一次約會的咖啡廳、最愛的公園……把那些對你們有意義的地方做成桌卡,介紹給賓客。

9.Favourite Places

Are there special places that mean something to you and your other half? The pub you met, the cafe you went to on your first date, a favourite park... think about places that mean something to you and use them to mark out your tables - you could even include a little caption explaining the significance of the place.

10.桌遊桌卡

如果你想要一個有創意大家又可以玩得很開心的主題,你可以選擇跟這對新人一樣用桌遊來當主題,超級好讓賓客熟識起來。

將撲克牌放入杯中,很推薦給小型的下午茶婚禮。

老實說,這是只有英文好的人愛玩的遊戲,但是在桌上放點小遊戲總是好。

13.Sweet Scrabble

HOW TO PREPARE YOURSELF FOR WEDDING DRESS SHOPPING

 

1. Consider Pricing First

Before you ever get to the point of finding bridal shops in your area, you should be deciding on your budget for your dress. Once you get to the bridal shop, make sure your consultant or salesperson knows your price range so that you won’t be subjected to finding the perfect dress that you absolutely adore, except that it costs five times more than you can afford to spend.

 

2. Consider Your Wedding Theme & Type

The dress you’ll be most comfortable wearing is one that is well-suited to your venue and wedding theme. Brace for wedding dressshopping by considering the many types of gowns you’ll be looking at and decide on your preferred style. If you’re having your wedding in a rustic barn, your dress needs will be much different than if you were having a large wedding in an opulent and sparkling setting. Some churches have dress codes, so be aware of that if you’re planning a church wedding.

3. Consider Flattering Styles For Your BodyIf you’ve been envisioning your walk down the aisle in a specific dress, you’ll be disappointed when you try it on if it isn’t flattering for your body. When you brace for wedding dress shopping, make sure to take into account that your preferred dress style may not work out and you need to keep an open mind when considering new options that flatter your form beautifully.

4. Consider Several Options Before Purchasing Anything

When you start shopping for your dress, take your time and look over lots of options; this gives you a better opportunity for a well-thought-out decision. Don’t feel like you’ve got to purchase a dress just because everyone says it looks great on you or because your consultant has taken the time to help you. Don’t be afraid to take advice from your consultant and friends or family, but remember that it is your wedding dress. Brace for wedding dress shopping by understanding that not everyone may think your dress is the greatest, and that’s okay.

5. Consider Other Stuff

Don’t take everyone along on your dress shopping excursions and don’t be afraid to consider other options and alternative when you’re shopping for the perfect wedding dress.
