We wanted to write out own vows at our wedding to do something a bit original and personal but neither of us are great writers. Someone told us about Your Perfect Words and at first we thought it would be weird to have someone else write our vows, but decided to inquire anyway. We were happily surprised to see right away how much we could be part of the process ourselves. They worked with each of us separately so it was still a surprise to hear each other’s vows on the special day and it took away a lot of the stress that a wedding already causes. We are so glad we decided to do it this way!

My son was preparing for his Bar Mitzvah a year ago and we wanted to add a special touch to the event.  I thought that it would be a good idea to spice up the candle-lighting ceremony by doing it in rhyme rather than just having my son read a few lines about each person he was going to call up.  I sent Your Perfect Words a list of the people who would be called up for each candle, and a few attributes and memories pertaining to that person.  The result was fantastic.  The short poems written for each candle were touching and also humorous…and they all rhymed! All 200 guests were laughing and crying during that part of the Bar Mitzvah and that’s still what people mention was their favorite part!

I had to write an invitation to my brother’s surprise birthday party. Since it was being sent to a lot of people, I wanted it to sound right. I had a lot of trouble making the invitation sound sincere yet witty, so I contacted Your Perfect Words. After some back and forth communication about what I wanted, I received the perfectly worded invitation in my email just a few days later. My family and brother’s friends called me personally to tell me how blown away they were at what “I” had written.  I’ll never word an invitation myself again!
