Why You Should Write a Love Letter The Morning Of Your Wedding

Adam Ewbank


It’s a beautiful thing to be in love. It’s even more beautiful when you can write your love down so that years later, you can read what your partner said about their feelings on the morning of your wedding day. 

Writing letters to each other is a way for you to express your feelings and emotions in a way that’s different from what you would say in person. Writing down your hopes for the future or things that are important to both of you gives your partner something tangible that they can hold onto long after the wedding has ended. So what is a wedding day love letter, what should you include in it, and how can you make sure that you capture the raw emotions surrounding it on your wedding day? This article will discuss all of this and so much more! 

What is a Wedding Day Love Letter?

We live in a digital age, but there’s nothing quite like exchanging handwritten letters on the morning of your wedding day. As you write to your partner on the morning of your wedding day, you will want to express love and affection, calm your nerves before the wedding day, and capture exactly how you feel. These letters are a way to express your love and gratitude for them, as well as give them something tangible (and beautiful) that they can keep forever.

A romantic love letter is a great way to express your feelings for your partner. It’s also a sweet way to start your wedding day, which can be stressful and busy with family and friends around you.

You don’t want to forget how much your partner means to you when all these other things are going on! A love letter will remind them how much they mean to you, even if everything else gets crazy before or after the ceremony.

How to Write a Wedding Day Love Letter

  • Start your letter with a greeting. For example, “Dear [name].”

  • Tell your partner exactly how much you love them. Tell them why you love them and what they mean to you. If anything, in particular, stands out about their character or personality that makes them special to you, include it here! And don’t forget to talk about the things that make their heart smile: maybe it’s the way they laugh at all of your jokes (even when they’re not funny), or maybe they have this silly habit of stealing food from other people’s plates when no one is looking.

  • End by wishing him/her happiness in life and expressing confidence in his/her ability to achieve whatever goals he/she has set for himself/herself and how excited you are to get married.

Obviously, there is room for personalization, but this general outline will ensure you have a noteworthy wedding day love letter to share.

How Long Should Your Wedding Day Love Letter Be?

The short answer: one page. It shouldn’t be more than a page and a half, max. Why? Because this is not the time to ramble on about how much you love them or how much they mean to you–that’s what the rest of your life will be for! Instead, focus on writing something sweet and romantic that will make them smile when they read it (and maybe cry too).

Where You Should Read Your Love Letter from Your Partner

The location of your reading should be private so that you and your partner can read and reflect on the letter alone. A location like this will also allow you or them to cry if you need to. If there are other people around, they will probably try to comfort or distract you from giving your full attention to your letter.

Making Sure Your Wedding Videographer Captures You Reading Your Love Letter

You want your wedding videographer and photographer to be in place when you read your love letter. And they should be ready to capture the moment when you open the envelope and start reading. Your wedding videographer and photographer will be able to capture your raw reaction, which may include tears of joy or laughter as you read through the words of affection written by your partner.

These photos and video clips will make for lasting memories and allow your partner to really see how you felt about the letter. Another idea we love is when you are able to read your letter out loud for your videographer to record. They can then use the sound of you reading as a background in your wedding video – talk about a tear-jerker! 

A Handwritten Letter is a Romantic Gesture that Will Never Go Out of Style

Handwritten letters are a romantic gesture that will never go out of style. They’re a sweet way to start your wedding day, and they can be used as a beautiful way to express love and gratitude. Handwritten letters also make an excellent gift for wedding guests, so you can share your thoughts and feelings with those who have helped make this day possible!

Handwritten notes are always appreciated by others, showing that you took time out of your busy schedule simply because someone matters to you. Handwriting letters allows us to slow down our lives just long enough so we can appreciate each other’s presence more deeply than we otherwise would be able if everything was done electronically instead (this includes emails).

Love Letters Create Lifelong Memories That You Can Revisit for Years

Writing a letter can be difficult at times, but it’s worth it when you see how happy it makes your spouse-to-be! You can read these letters, watch videos of the reading, and revisit photos of your reaction in your wedding album for years to come. You may even be able to share your love letters with future generations to inspire them and their love story.

We hope this article has inspired you to write a love letter on your wedding day. It’s a sweet way to start the rest of your life together and create memories that will last forever!
