Letter of Bride to Groom is a personal letter of a woman to the man she expects to spend the rest of her life with. It expresses her fears, hopes, and love to the man she gave her heart to.

 

June 23, 2013

My Love,

In a few hours, we will be seeing each other at the altar, dressed to the nines, feeling like the two most special people in the world, and making a promise with our personally written wedding vows just like we planned. I am writing this now amidst the chatter and cheer of friends and relatives that have come to spend this special day with us. At the risk of smudging my well-made up face, I write to you my fears, hopes, and love.

Even having known you for many years, I still fear that we might still discover something about each other that will make us rue the day we said yes to each other. It is my hope however that we will be able to see beyond each other’s faults which I’m sure are many. Let our love help us recognize our faults and encourage us to change for the better.

I’m not sure if I can be the perfect wife to you and mother to our children. All I can promise is that I will try to be a good wife and mother as perfection is much too stressful and unattainable. Let our love be a way for us to attain perfect acceptance instead of the work and responsibility required to have a good marriage.

I cannot assure you that I will not gain weight and not have bulges at all the wrong places through time and several children. I do promise however to continually strive to become the beautiful human being you would want to spend the rest of your life with. I know my love for you will not see the baldness and protruding belly which my eyes will see, that much I can also promise.

If anyone of us gets sick, let us please take care of each other. I will try my best not to, so I can take care of you and our children so please do the same. Let our love carry us through the difficult times of sickness towards healing.

In our advanced years, let us not be cranky and impatient with each other. When our memory fails us, let our love guide us back to remembering. Let our love bring us back to this day we have made our promise to each other to be together for better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in healthtill death do us part.

Your bride,

Letter Writer

    Just the promises I really wanted for a future wife to hear, specially that of “I will not gain weight and not have bulges at all the wrong places through time and several children.” Yan lang ang ni-request ko noon sa misis ko and she gave in to my wish. LOL

  2. This is such an honest and sweet letter. Somehow, this gave me tuloy an idea to also write a letter to my future husband :D Hopefully I can keep the “not gain weight” promise.. Haha

    • Teresa Martinez says:

      I’m sure you will come up with the most beautiful personal letter to your future husband.

  3. Franc Ramon says:

    I guess it’s a more realistic promise that amidst the hardship, it’s the love that will keep them through.

    • Teresa Martinez says:

      If I may say so, to continue loving amidst the hardship will truly test love. Love rarely gets tested during good times.

  4. finajenny says:

    This is so nice… I wonder what would I write to my future husband if we get married:)

  5. lovemindanao says:

    If this is coming from my future wife , i will love her more not because of the promises but seeing how she will keep herself trying to be the best of friend and partner in life.

    • Teresa Martinez says:

      That is what we all hope for: a spouse who is not only our partner in life but also our best friend.

  6. I hope that when I finally do get married, that I may be able to write something as beautiful as this to my groom. He deserves to read something this personal, something this sweet.

    • Teresa Martinez says:

      I’m sure you will be able to compose your own letter for your groom. I have no doubts that it will be beautiful because your love will make it so.

  7. Roch says:

    A great letter indeed. The message is too generic but at the same time it captures most people’s hearts because they can relate very well.

    • Teresa Martinez says:

      Rather than generic, may I just use universal because the message reaches out to people’s hearts as you said.

  8. Mark Morfe says:

    That’s one sweet letter to be cherished for a lifetime.

  9. Karen says:

    It’s easy to express it in a letter but in reality sometimes it’s hard to follow. But I won’t waste the kilig factor doing this kind of letter. It is somehow exciting lalo na kapag newly weds, di ba?

  10. cindy b says:

    Love this! Thank you so much for sharing!

  11. Algene says:

    Oh, the love of a woman for the man whom she wants to spend the rest of her life with. May the grow together, full of love and happiness :)

  12. betchai says:

    love this line- “All I can promise is that I will try to be a good wife and mother as perfection is much too stressful and unattainable.”

    Indeed, perfection is much too stressful which includes not gaining weight, hehe, but we could strive to be the best we could be for each other.

  13. Oh, I love that last paragraph, reminds me of my father-in-law and his undying love for my late MIL.

    • Teresa Martinez says:

      One of best things that come with getting married is to grow old with someone with the full acceptance of good things and bad that come with a person and still being able to say I love you with the same fervor as in the wedding day.

  14. This made me think of my future… I would not wish anything to my bride to be, just be the person I loved and will be loving forever…

    • Teresa Martinez says:

      It is nice to know that you do not intend to put pressure on your bride-to-be. That will certainly make for a better relationship especially when it is done both ways.

  15. Lainy says:

    I believe getting cranky when the age starts to catch up is something that couples will have to foresee. Looking beyond the imperfections of each other is indeed the best way to keep a marriage hold together.

    • Teresa Martinez says:

      I’m sure there will be difficult times especially when age catches up but with age should come wisdom. Wise people know that nobody is perfect and to demand that from a spouse would surely kill the marriage.

  16. papaleng says:

    Promises and vows, just like Mt. Everest, can be conquered by Love and Trust.

  17. Nova S says:

    such a wonderful letter. truly shows the fears, hopes and dreams of the girl, however the only thing i can advice with her or him is MARRIAGE IS A FOREVER adjustment…it’s not a year or 50 years as long as both are still alive adjustment is always be a big part of it.

  18. Anna says:

    only love and trust sustains a relationship , plus the presence of God in it, most importantly.

  19. lencilicious says:

    A heart felt message of someone who’s willing to love till the end.

  20. I don’t wanna make a letter like this in the future. I’m afraid to fail.

    • Teresa Martinez says:

      An advice from someone who failed one time: Don’t be afraid to commit, just make sure you are committing to the right person.
