Handwritten letters create nostalgic feelings, and a sense of closeness not found in a text message or an email.
Writing a letter is about the time it takes to gather your thoughts and putting pen to paper. It’s about how time slows you down to put your feelings on paper. And it’s about the time you take to make each word count in hopes to create a nostalgic experience.
So how can a handwritten love letter be impactful and memorable?
The First Date
When you first meet someone special handwrite a letter or a quick note describing the moment you met them, plus how and why it was memorable.
As your relationship expands, send handwritten notes on special days or every so often to keep building the memories and creating beautiful experiences.
When proposing, handwrite a letter and give it to your partner before the proposal.
Or after they say yes, give them or send them a letter describing your overall feelings from the moment you met to the special moments of the proposal.
Include the “why” they are important to you and the reason you want them in your life. Mention what characteristics they have, that make your days brighter.
The Wedding Day
On the day of the wedding, it’s become increasingly popular for couples to exchange a wedding gift accompanied with a letter or note. It’s not so much about the gift, it’s more about the moment. What better time to write a Love Letter to each other that can then be framed and placed in a special place in your home or stored in a keepsake box with your other love letters.
These letters do not have to be long but should definitely include special memories and words to help you both keep calm and remind yourselves that the day is about the both of you. The wedding day may go by so fast; it may seem like a blur. So, moments that you can take and reflect on beautiful words and memories, can make the day even more special.
For couples having short & sweet ceremonies who would rather keep their special vows for a private moment, what better time than including them in your wedding love letter. Wedding planning can take a lot of your energy and time, so what better time than to share what your partner means to you.
One of the keys to long lasting relationships is communications, so what better experience to share than a moment to create a “Love Letter” during special life moments or just because.
