#16: Say your vows (quietly)

Even the cake was in tiers is our series tips for weddings. The title comes from an overused and not so funny wedding speech joke, "It's been an emotional day...". What advice did you wish someone had told you before your wedding? We're collating all the etiquette and expertise here.

At the rehearsal the Bride (and sometimes the Groom) is worried about being able to speak their vows loudly enough. But to put you at ease just focus on saying them to each other. In legal terms your words only need to be heard by each other, your witness and occasionally a registrar. So don't let your volume be something to worry about.
