Wedding is the big day when you promise to spend the rest of your life with the person you love. Every bride and groom goes through a myriad of emotions before making a big commitment. If you are getting married soon, you are probably acquainted with the nervous excitement known as ‘marriage jitters.’ And the only person who can relate to you is your to-be spouse.
So, why not write a letter to them expressing all that you feel before you both finally take the plunge. Share your anxiety, excitement, expectations, and everything else that you feel like telling your partner. Let them know how happy you feel to be able to spend your life with them.
They will read this letter on the day of the marriage but not in front of you. They can read it when alone, trying to collect thoughts before the marriage ceremony starts.
We have a few sample letters in this post to inspire you to send a wedding letter to your partner and share your feelings with them.
10 Tips For Writing Wedding Letters
Before you start putting your feelings on paper, have a look at some tips to write a good wedding letter.
1. Plan your letter
It can be an impossible task to gather your thoughts and write them clearly in a letter on the same day as your wedding. So, plan the contents of your letter days or weeks before the special day. Make notes of points you want to write in your letter on paper or your phone. Take your time to write all that you wish to convey to your partner. This way, you will not miss out on anything and mention all that you want to.
2. Keep it concise
The purpose of a wedding letter is to express love for your partner, and it is easy to get emotional and fill pages after pages with your inner feelings. However, they may not have the time to read a long letter, so it is best you keep it short and concise, by mentioning only those points that will make your wedding day more special for your partner.
3. Mention positive points only
Your relationship may have seen its share of ups and downs, but on your wedding day, you share only the happy parts of it. You can leave the negative experiences behind for one day and remind your partner of all the happy times you spent with each other.
4. Keep it natural
Do not try to write funny lines if you are not a humorous person or get too philosophical when you do not feel it from within. Your partner will spot it easily. Instead, be genuine and write what comes to you naturally. If you seem to be struggling with the opening, use a relationship quote and continue with what you want to say.
Now let’s have a look at the points you can mention in the letter.
5. Mention your reasons for saying ‘yes’
One of the most important points you should not miss mentioning in the letter is why you marry your partner. Tell them how excited you are to share your life with them. Mention how you feel confident that you have found a great partner in them, and you cannot wait to have a wonderful life with them by your side.
6. Express your hopes for a happy wedding
It takes months of planning and coordination to have a wedding procession go smoothly. And it is natural for you and your partner to feel anxious about the wedding preparations. Tell your partner how you wish everything goes by the plans and that you are looking forward to your first dance as Mr and Mrs.
7. Recall how it all started
You can take a walk down memory lane and recall how you first met each other and your first impressions. Write how the relationship has changed you and your partner and how long you have come since you met for the first time. Keep it short, sweet, and interesting. It is okay if you get a little emotional on this one.
8. Add what you like about them
In your wedding letter, you can write what you like about your partner. In a line or two, mention the moment you realized that they were ‘the one’ for you. You can also add instances of when you felt happy and overwhelmed by something they did for you, but you could never say it directly.
9. Tell them your dreams for the future
By committing to them, you are signing up for a life that you envision with them. Write to your partner about the kind of couple you think you will make. Let them know how you see yourself as a couple living happily ever after. Tell them how you want to share certain experiences with them, such as traveling to a new place, doing a joint activity, or coming home every day to them.
10. Make a promise
You can conclude your letter with a promise that is not a part of your wedding vows. This promise can be something trivial. For instance, if you have the habit of leaving a bottle open after you have had water from it, then promise your partner that henceforth you will ensure that you close the bottle tightly each time you have water from it. Or anything that could share a good laugh.
Letter To The Bride On The Wedding Day
The pretty princess is soon going to be the queen of your castle. Here are some examples of wedding letters you can write to make her feel special and happy on your wedding day.
1. Dear [Name],
I have never been more confident in life than I am now. Today, I make the world’s most beautiful woman my wife, and I know you are the perfect life partner for me. The very first moment I laid my eyes on you, I knew we were meant to be together. Since then, every single moment that we spent together reinforced my belief in ‘us.’
If I get to live my life again, I would only like to relive the part where we first met at your cousin’s birthday. My heart never pounded as hard before as it did that day seeing you in that blue dress. I consider myself lucky that you agreed to share your life with me. I promise to never hurt you and always be with you through everything that life offers us.
2. Dear [Name]
I did not believe in love at first sight until my eyes accidentally met yours in our school canteen. I started looking forward to lunch breaks only to be able to see you every day. I never dared to talk to you back then, but here I am today, ready to make you my beloved wife. You are a dream come true for me. You are the answer to my prayers for a wonderful life partner.
I cannot promise the world to you, but I certainly can promise to keep loving you with all my heart. Thank you for coming into my life and filling it with beautiful colors and your unique scent. You do not know what you mean to me. I love you with all my heart and hope to be the best husband ever.
3. My to-be wife,
Of all the promotions I have sought in life, the one where I go from Mr. Boyfriend to Mr. Husband is my most awaited one. In a few hours, we will be tied together for a lifetime, and I cannot tell you how excited I am to take up your spouse’s role.
But before you say ‘I do,’ I want you to know that I may not be the best boyfriend or husband, but I can be the one who loves you the most in the world. I cannot promise that we will never fight, but I can promise to kiss and make up with you after every fight. Baby, you mean the world to me, and I want to make you the happiest wife ever.
4. My Dear [Name],
First off, I can bet my life that you are going to be the most beautiful bride today. And I will be the luckiest guy on the planet to be able to hold your hand. After tonight, I won’t need the sun anymore because I have your smile to brighten my day. You are the most special gift in my life that I promise to cherish forever.
I love how independent and strong you are but try to lean on me sometimes too. I want to be your knight in shining armor, so give me a chance to save your day the way you have saved mine so many times. I promise not to disappoint you.
Yours truly for now and forever,
5. My Sweet [Name],
There are no words to describe how happy I feel right now. I never thought that luck would smile upon me and bless me with an angel like you. My life was leading nowhere before you stepped in and gave it a new direction. You gave meaning to my life, and I cannot thank you enough for being who you are and accepting me the way I am.
There is not a single thing I would like to change about you, and promise me that you will be the way you are. I love it when you snort uncontrollably while laughing, and I promise to make you laugh so I can hear you snort more. You complete me, my love.
Cheers to a lifetime together!
Your husband-to-be in a few hours,
6. Dearest [Name],
Life is so unpredictable! Who knew that the lazy lad working at his uncle’s convenience store would catch the eye of a straight-A student who would go on a date with him and then change his life. Thank you for meeting me at the right time. I cannot even imagine where I would be today had you not decided to ask me out and change my life.
Whatever I am today is because of you. I got out of the convenience store and went to college only to impress you. I worked hard, got a job and a house only to make you happy. My life is on the right track only because of you. You never asked for a single thing from me, but today, I wish to hand over my entire life to you. I am nothing without you.
Yours now and forever,
7. Sweetheart [Name],
Feels like I have waited my entire life to see you as my bride. And now that the day has arrived, I feel nervous. Not because of the wedding but because I’m worried that you might come to your senses and refuse to marry a weirdo like me. I still remember the feeling of exhilaration when you accepted my proposal. You made me the happiest man that day.
And today, I will become the luckiest man to marry the best wife anyone can ask for. I want to tell you that from today you are allowed to try all the pranks you enjoy playing on me because I will take instant revenge with hugs and kisses. So, be ready to pay the price for fooling me.
The one who loves you,
Letters To The Groom On The Wedding Day
Soon be tied in the bond of marriage with your charming prince, here are some sample wedding letters that you can write to the love of your life.
8. Dear [Name].
Nine years ago, I never realized that the guy in the blue Camaro asking me for directions to his aunt’s house would end up altering the direction of my life. I would never have thought that a lost teenager would transform into the hardworking, strong, and loving man you are today.
Your smile still makes my heart flutter, and my name on your lips makes my heart skip a beat. Thank you for accepting me as your partner. Before I pledge to love you till my last breath at the altar, I promise to remember to unplug the phone charger every night before sleeping. So, do not worry you are in safe hands for the rest of your life.
Let’s drive our way through a wonderful life together.
Your wife in a few hours,
9. Dearest Hubby-To-Be [Name]
Our day has finally arrived, baby! We will be man and wife soon. But before we get married, I want to tell you how happy I am to be walking down the altar to you. When I first met you, I never imagined that you would become the ‘better half’ of me. And here I am today, thanking the Gods above for bringing you into my life.
You have seen me through the best and worst phases of life and have always been my pillar of strength and reason to smile. It is my turn to promise you my love and loyalty for this lifetime, and I am more than happy to do so. I hope we have the most memorable wedding because I know we will be the most awesome couple ever.
Your to-be-wife in a while
10. Dearest [Name]
With every passing second, I come closer to becoming yours forever. Three years ago, when you first held my hand and helped me cross the busy road, I had no idea one day you’d promise to hold my hand forever. Your caring nature bowled me over, and I can’t wait to be yours soon.
Today, in front of the Almighty, our friends, and families, we will promise to stay by each other’s side for the rest of our life. But I want to make a promise right now to always hold your hand in every phase of life.
I love you,
11. Dear [Name]
Time flies! It feels like yesterday that you slipped into my DM on Instagram asking if we could be friends. Little did I know that slowly you would slip into my heart too. Your entry in my life felt like a drop of rain on parched land. Life has become so beautiful since I met you, and I hope it continues to be so after we are together as hubby and wifey.
Later, when we stand together before the Almighty, I want you to hold my hand tightly, so I know it is not a dream and that we are really getting married. Everything is happening so fast that I cannot believe I am marrying the man of my dreams. Today, I promise never to let go of your hand no matter what life throws our way. I will be by your side through it all.
Let’s embark on the happiest journey called ‘married life.’
12. My munchkin [Name]
Today is the day to be written in golden letters in our story. I have always cared for you, and from today, I will officially be in charge of ensuring that you never neglect yourself. I promise to support you always, the way you have supported me. I will walk beside you in every endeavor of yours and be your biggest cheerleader the way you have always been mine.
Let’s share our days and nights to build a strong and beautiful life together. I know now for sure that I would walk down the altar to no one but you. You are the best part of my life, and I feel honored to be your wife soon.
Cheers to new beginnings, my love.
13. Dearest [Name]
Right now, you may be a door away, but I can feel your heartbeat as hard as mine. I know how anxious you must be for our big day because I think the same way, my darling. In the last few years, we have shared so many of our firsts together, and by sealing our lifelong partnership today, we will be able to share our firsts, seconds, and thirds.
I cannot wait to see what life has in store for us. I know I will love you more each day because you are the best thing to have ever
happened to me.
See you at the altar.
14. My darling [Name],
My love, my life. I cannot believe our marriage day has finally arrived. It was a long journey from being classmates to friends to lovers and now spouses. But it has been the most beautiful journey of my life. When I said ‘yes’ to your proposal, the only thing on my mind was that I wanted to be happy all my life, and for me, happiness is being with you.
You made me believe in true love and showed me the meaning of ‘soulmates.’ Loving you is like breathing for me, natural and necessary. I love you from the core of my heart and cannot wait to say ‘I do’ to the man who makes me feel happy and content in life.
15. My love [Name],
When you came to my rescue that fateful evening, I thought to myself, how lucky is the girl who is with a wonderful guy like you. Little did I know that I would one day be the lucky one to call you ‘my man.’ Destiny brought us together, but our love and trust will keep us together forever.
As we start a new chapter to our story today, I can imagine how wonderful our journey will be. I am looking forward to traveling with you and creating lots of memories. I want to live in our dream house together with our future babies and pets. Let’s create a world of our own.
