|Tips for Writing Your Own Vows:
1. Look at traditional and non-traditional vows. Decide what elements you like and what you don't like.
2. Ask yourselves what marriage means to you and then what marriage vows mean to you. Remember that vows are
commitments that you are making to one another.
3. Think about what unique promises or honoring words you would like to include in writing your vows.
4. Decide whether you will each make the same vows to each other or unique vows to one another.
5. Now, put those elements together in a "rough draft" .
6. Read the vows out loud. This will help you to adjust the wording to best reflect your intent.
7. Do it your way! Ignore advice that says that you should keep your vows short. Make them as you want them whether
short, medium, or "long".
8. If you need help getting started or finishing writing your vows, ask your officiant for help.

|Tips for a Smooth Wedding Rehearsal
By Reverend Marya O’Malley, Wedding Officiant
Your rehearsal can be a lot of fun. At rehearsals the bride and groom and their rehearsal guests and family members come
together for two main reasons:
1. Social aspect of meeting and greeting one another and sharing in the fun of anticipating the wedding ceremony itself.
2. To inform those involved in the wedding ceremony about their roles and logistics:
It may help to make an instructive list and give it to your wedding party.
To get your rehearsal started, if you are conducting the rehearsal yourselves, you may want to designate someone to get everyone’s
attention and let them know that the rehearsal is about to start.
Most of all, allow yourself to relax and enjoy the good company! Congratulations.
