Behind the glitz and glamour of a wedding day is a nervous couple who are trying to do everything just right. There is a great deal of coordination, paperwork, and organization that goes into planning a wedding. Writing a letter to the man of your dreams is a traditional part of wedding preparations. It is a wonderful opportunity to tell him how much you care about him, how much you love him and how much you want your marriage to succeed. However, it might be difficult to write the ideal love letter to your husband on your wedding day. In order to help you get started on your wedding letter, let's go over some helpful tips and samples.
What Is a Wedding Day Letter?
Wedding day letters are a wonderful way to share your wishes, sentiments, and thoughts with someone on their big day. For this special occasion, the bride (or groom, depending on the situation) writes a wedding day letter to another person on or before the special day. It doesn't matter how lengthy, funny, or serious it is; the toast only has to capture the spirit of the couple's special connection.
Why Should You Write A Wedding Day Letter?
The wedding day letter is an optional practice that is still important. Here are some great reasons to give your spouse a letter on your wedding day:
- Capturing Emotions: The feelings experienced on the wedding day are strong, unique, and temporary. By putting those emotions into words, you may both reflect back on that day and help capture its essence.
- Strengthening Bond: You and your husband may build your connection by talking about your deepest emotions and thoughts with one another. It shows your future spouse that he is more important to you than the traditional wedding trappings.
- Personal Reflection: In the midst of the chaos of wedding planning and celebrations, sitting down to pen a thoughtful letter may be a refreshing break. Reflection is another benefit of writing. Writing about your feelings might help you get perspective on your partner and strengthen your feelings for one another.
- Lasting Keepsake: You may keep the joy and excitement of your wedding day alive in your heart forever by writing a letter to yourself on your big day. On difficult days or milestone anniversaries, you can read it aloud to each other and be reminded of the strength of your relationship.
- Private Moment: Of course, the vows are a major part of the ceremony, but some couples may feel uncomfortable or nervous saying their vows in front of so many people.
Therefore, you may express yourself openly and honestly in a private letter without fearing that your words will be misunderstood.
- A Source of Comfort: You can use the letter as a calming tool to remind each other of your commitment, love, and the reasons you decided to be together at times of differences or when faced with challenges in the future.
What to Include in Your Wedding Letter to Your Partner
Your wedding letter should be genuine and written at the right time. The process of writing such a letter might be difficult which is why we've provided a basic framework to get you started. Don't be afraid to make little adjustments to make it your own and reflect your personality.
The Reasons You Love Him
Why do you think your future husband is the one? What qualities do you like about him? What does he do that you find humorous or that improves your day? Tell them why you think they are deserving of your trust and faith. Even though it seems sentimental, it's a wonderful way to start your wedding day. Give your significant other a few minutes to reflect on everything about you that makes you feel dedicated, confident and connected to them.
Your Promises For The Future
Even though you have already written your vows, now is the perfect time to incorporate any details you may not want your guests to know, such as promising to always have food for road trips or allowing them to watch Sunday and Monday night football.
Your Hope For The Day
There is one thing that can be said with absolute certainty regarding the wedding day: it will fly past. Include your hopes for the ceremony and reception, as well as other activities you have planned together, in your letter. You might want to make sure you both get to eat all of the food and have a slice or two of the wedding cake. Maybe the first or last dance is something you've been waiting for. Don't be afraid to share your innermost thoughts, emotions, and hopes with your partner-to-be.
It's a great chance to think back on the past while also looking ahead to your future together when you write a letter to your future husband. This may be your first date, your first kiss, your first time realizing you were in love, first time meeting your spouse's parents, or any number of other firsts.
Tell Your Husband Your Proudest Moment
It's wonderful to think back on one or two moments when you were really proud of your partner. This letter is the perfect method to tell your spouse all the things you want to say to them but can't bring yourself to say out loud, such as how much you love them, how proud you are of them, and how much you appreciate them.
Close with a famous quote or Lines
Close with something really special. “I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you” or “I love you with all my heart” make great lines.
Tips for Writing a Wedding Letter to Your Partner
Make sure to follow these tips when you want to write a letter to your partner on your wedding day:
- Speak From Your Heart: Openness, honesty, and speaking from the heart are ideal. Share with your partner your current emotions, the reasons you love them, and the joys you await from being with them.
- Make a list and Include every personal detail: Create a list and remember to include special, personal touches that only the two of you share. Think back on the times you both laughed together or reached significant milestones together. With these additions, your letter will be more touching and unforgettable. Gather your thoughts and sketch up a rough overview of the narratives you'd want to include. So, when the time comes, the letter may be written quickly and efficiently.
- Write Down Your Thoughts Whenever You Have Something to Say: Whether you're in the grocery store, getting your nails done, or working out, inspiration may strike at any time. Make a note on your phone (or write it down in a notebook) if you have something important to tell your partner but don't want to forget it.
- Make Time for Writing the Letter in Silence: It's more practical to say that we'll get to something tomorrow but the reality is that we never do. Set aside time to write the letter without any interruptions.
Examples of Letters to Your Husband on Your Wedding Day
To My Lovely John,
Before I go into the heart of this letter, let me just express how much I love and respect you. Every day when you go for work and every night before we go to sleep, I tell you that I love you but it's never enough. I'm in love with you over and over again. That should be enough to get me through the rest of this letter.
The time we spent together in those months set my decision to spend the rest of my life with you. I fall in love with you every single day because you are so persistent, resourceful, and motivated. Watching you become more secure and self-assured while standing by your side is a true honor.
There's nothing but success in our future, John; I can't wait to share it with you. Cheers to achievement, fulfillment and joy!
“Did you ever know that you're my hero,
And everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
For you are the wind beneath my wings.
You were content to let me shine, that's your way.
You always walked a step behind.
So I was the one with all the glory,
While you were the one with all the strength. “—- Bette Midler
My Dear Husband Michael,
From the time I was a little girl, I have prayed for you and for this very moment. You've always had such a deep love for God, and that's what attracted me to you in the first place. According to St. Paul, marriage is “a mystery of Christ and His Church,” which means that our earthly marriage is a type of the heavenly relationship with God. Thank God for blessing me with you so that we can spend our lives together cherishing Christ and all the joys and sorrows of marriage.
I knew I was in for a big adventure with you, Michael, from the moment we went on our first date. As the years have passed, you've become my closest friend, the one I think about before sunrise and after dark. You have taught me to love you more than I love myself and you have reminded me of God's love and patience when times were difficult. What the Bible says about love, “We love, because he first loved us,” has a deeper and more profound significance to me than I ever realized.
I pledge to support you as your wife, to love and honor you no matter what, and to always put you first. My love for you is like that of Jesus Christ; it never fails. I know that there aren't enough letters in the alphabet to spell out how much I love you, but I want to spend the rest of my life proving to you that I mean “I do” now, tomorrow and forever and ever.
Your loving wife,
To the Love of My Life,
I feel like the luckiest, most privileged woman alive because you love me and want to spend the rest of your life with me. If everything goes as planned, at the end of the night we will be lifelong soulmates. Nothing brings me greater happiness and fulfillment than thinking about the years to come.
For the rest of our lives, I promise to love you unconditionally. Through the good and the bad, the highs and the lows, I commit to trusting, believing, and ultimately choosing you. Together, we can face and defeat any difficulty.
Your wife to be,
To My Future Husband,
It's hard to believe that in less than six hours I'll be able to officially call you my husband. We have been looking forward to today for a very long time! I'm loaded with nervous and enthusiastic energy, which is always a good sign.
We have put a lot of thought and effort into every detail of our wedding (I truly hope your family will appreciate the food that we picked). No matter what happens, I want you to know that I love you always.
Our happily ever after begins now! I'm going to keep saying it to myself over and again until it finally clicks. We still have a long time to grow as a couple and have a family. All my pledges and vows will be saved until the big day. I'm sure you already know that I'd do anything for you and I have no doubt that you'd do the same for me.
I LOVE YOU!
Your wife to be, Luna
I'm getting married to the man of my dreams, which makes it the best day of my life. I know that with you at my side, everything is possible. When I first laid eyes on you, I had a feeling we were meant to be together.
Your actions and words over time have convinced me without any reasonable doubt. I would choose you every time if I had to do this whole thing over again. It looks like everything is working out for us and I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you.
Your wife-to-be, Ava
My Dear Husband,
When it comes to relationships and wedlock, I've heard some very terrifying stories. The commitment related doubts, arguments and challenges that must be overcome on a regular basis. But I have a secret to share with you. Being with you doesn't provide any challenges.
It's simple to enjoy your humor, get lost in your charm and fall in love with you simply for being you. Everything is better because of you and I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you as my partner. Together, let's go off on this great journey and see where it takes us.
With all my love,
My Love Justin,
The world is a more beautiful and meaningful place because you are in it. With all my heart, I love you, and I'm so happy to call you my husband. This is one of my greatest fantasies coming true: in the next few hours, we will be legally married. Together, we are going to do incredible things.
Since we met, you've inspired me with your strength, brilliance and determination and I appreciate that. I have no doubt that our house will serve as an example to others. The idea of marriage will be understood correctly after this. I am completely ready to go on this adventure beside you.
To my one and only, David
When you put the wedding band on my finger and make us promise to love and cherish each other forever, I will be overjoyed. I've been waiting for this time my entire life and now it has come.
I can't wait till the next time you hold me in your arms and know that you have complete control over me. Wrap your arms around me and let's immerse ourselves in the promise of eternal love we've made to one another.
I'm really blessed to have you by my side moving ahead since you are my forever person.
Dearest hubby to be,
Finally, our day has come, baby! Very soon, we will be husband and wife. I can't tell you how excited I am to be going down the aisle to you until after the wedding. I never would have imagined that you would end up becoming my ‘better half' when we first met. I am wearing the most beautiful wedding dress in the history of the world because the Gods heard my prayers and sent me the most beautiful man in the history of this world.
You have been there for me through the good times and the bad and you are the reason I can still smile today. Now it is my chance to pledge my undying devotion to you and I couldn't be happier about it. We're going to be the coolest couple ever, so I really hope our wedding is one for the ages.
My Dear love,
It's all because to you, Jack; you're my protector, my lover and my closest friend. To becoming your wife means the world to me and you have my whole and undying love. I keep picturing the moment I see you and confess my love for you, and it gives me butterflies. It's been a roller coaster of emotions, but I know it's been worth it. If I didn't have so much time to prepare for our wedding, I may just run down the aisle to get to you. Seeing you at the altar is like something out of a fairy tale.
Having you in my life will make everything wonderful. I know that every day will be a nice day if I wake up next to you. I know that the phrase “love at first sight” is overused, but moment I laid eyes on you, I knew you were the one.
Do you remember when we had our first date? In that moment, I realized that our connection was something far more profound than lust. You are the one who defines love for me. With every beat of my heart, I love you!
Your future wife, Evelyn
You've made me the happiest woman in the world and I can't thank you enough. It's hard to think it's been two years since we first started dating, but I can't wait until next month to finally tie the knot with you. We've had a lot of ups and downs together, but I wouldn't change a thing. I'm so happy to have been a part of your life's journey to this point and I feel blessed to have played a role in guiding you over rough seas and into the peaceful shores of our love.
I am thankful for the way that you care for me and the way that you treat me. I love how thoughtful you are to my desires and needs and how you never fail to surprise me. I love your sense of humor and comedic sensibility.
Thank you for supporting me in achieving my goals and for your assistance. Your ability to listen attentively and your tolerance of my tendency to go on are two of my favorite qualities about you.
You complete me; you calm my worries, you give me strength when I'm anxious and you make me feel safe when I'm alone. I'm so excited for our wedding day and the rest of our lives together as husband and wife.
All my love,
My Dearest, Ethan
Time is ticking away and I'm getting closer and closer to being yours permanently. I had no idea that you would vow to hold my hand forever three years ago, when you first took my hand and guided me across the busy road. I was really blown away by your compassion and I can't wait to finally call you mine.
Here and now, I take you as my partner with great honor. True love is the only explanation for the type of mutual understanding we've enjoyed during our whole time together. I want to promise you right now that I will always hold your hand, no matter what.
You helped me in overcoming obstacles, supported my personal development and raised my self esteem. You have played a role in my development as the person I am now and with your support, I will continue to improve.
I promise to listen to your advice and at times follow it,
I promise not to keep score… Even if I win,
I promise to always respect how strong, kind, and determined your heart is,
I also promise to love you, ask for help when I need it, and always help you.
Let's put our friendship first and age together as companions.
To the Love of My Life,
How quickly time passes! Seems like only yesterday that you came into my Instagram DM and asked to be friends. I had no idea how slowly you'd work your way into my heart. Your presence in my life was like a refreshing shower after a long dry. Since meeting you, everything has brightened up, and I pray that this trend continues once we are married.
We'll be standing before God together at some point in the future, and I want you to hold my hand hard so I know this isn't a dream and we're actually being married. I still can't believe I'm marrying the man of my dreams, how quickly everything has moved. No matter what challenges life may provide us with, I pledge today to always hold your hand. I'll stick by your side no matter what happens.
Let's begin the journey to happiness known as “married life.” Pop the champagne cork. It's time to have a party!
Your wife to be
To my one and only husband,
Whenever I consider how blessed I am to have you in my life, the term “gift” comes to mind. Having you in my life is nothing short of a miracle and I'm extremely thankful for that. On the day of our wedding, I was thinking about how to write a letter to my husband that would seem romantic and meaningful. After some time, I came to the conclusion you needed to know that you are my greatest gift.
You've always been there for me and you're the one who gives me the most encouragement. Thanks a lot for helping me out. I never thought a relationship could make me feel so valued and appreciated. Really, you're a miracle to me.
I know that my feelings for you won't change whether it's been a year, 10 years, or fifty. Having you in my life will make each and every day a gift and a blessing.
With all my love,
Your wife to be
I remember thinking to myself that fateful night when you saved me, “How lucky is the girl who is with a wonderful guy like you.” I never imagined that I would be the one to get to call you “my man.” Our love and trust will keep us together forever, despite the fact that destiny brought us together.
I can already picture how amazing our adventure will be as we begin a new chapter to our story today. Together, we will travel and make a lot of memories, which I am looking forward to. We wish to raise our future children and pets in our ideal home.
My father always said, “Find someone who lifts you up when you're with him,” and you are that person for me. The world needs us, so let's make one.
