Exchanging Love Notes on Your Wedding Day
One of the sweetest moments of your wedding is reading the heartfelt words of your love just before the ceremony. If you are struggling with writer's block, follow these tips for love notes that you both will treasure:
1. Plan Ahead
It would be a terrible way to start your married life together if one of you forgets to write a note to the other, so make sure to plan a two-way exchange! If discussing your notes feels a little unromantic, then ask a trusted messenger who will make sure you both have notes ready, and who will also be able to deliver each note at the same time. This is a perfect task for your maid of honor and best man!
2. Begin at the Beginning
A great way to begin your note is by recalling what you felt when you first met, and then transition to the moment you knew you were in love. How did you know that you wanted to spend the rest of your life together?
3. Short and Sweet
You probably could go on and on, but it is best to keep your note at one or two pages max.
4. Pen and Paper
We live in an age when almost everything we read and write is digital. Make sure your note is handwritten for a much more personal feel. Finish your note with a spritz of your signature perfume/cologne for a lovely touch!
5. Skip the Thesaurus
Your note is the last note your beloved will read before becoming your spouse, but don't let that fact carry more weight than it should. Use words that you normally would rather than embellishing too much. Your note should sound like you and come straight from your heart.
6. Warm Those Feet
Calm any pre-wedding jitters with confident words of how sure you are about getting married.
7. Sign it with a Thrill
Before your sign your name, preface it with the words "your soon-to-be wife/soon-to-be husband" - there is just something really thrilling about reading those words on paper!
