The words that hold promise to your beginning as a couple – we can't begin to forget about the meaning that vows hold. There's just something that tugs at our heartstrings when we hear a bride and groom exchanging the most heartfelt, and tender promises that will define the future of their marriage.
Get ready to grab a tissue (or a whole box) because we're jumping into three reasons why memorizing your wedding vows will be the best decision you ever made!

1. Holding Your Promises Close to Your Heart
As they say, what you memorize – your remember. What better way to look back on your promises than to take them to memory?
Vows are so much more than words said on the wedding day – they're promises that are foundational to the growth and flourishment of your life as a couple! When you memorize your wedding vows, you remember that marriage takes two people who intend on doing their part, to keep the promise of marriage.
2. Reciting Paperless Promises
Now, this may not be for everyone and we totally get this, but if you're the kind of person who likes to recite from memory – more props to you! Reciting wedding vows from memory is one of the most rewarding things.
It allows you to give your partner your undivided attention as you speak from the heart. If you and your future spouse decide you'd like to recite from memory, but are feeling a bit nervous and might forget – there is no shame in keeping a spare copy with your maid-of-honor or best man in the case of nervousness.
3. You Can See Someone's Personality
Memorizing your wedding vows allows each individual couple's personality to shine. After the wedding day has come and gone – being able to recite your promises allows you to say them in a meaningful way.
Even during the ceremony, you are able to see the genuineness of someone's heart and personality as they recite their promises.
At the end of the day, these vows are between you and your partner. Say, write and express them in a way that shows YOUR devotion and appreciation.
