Tips for Writing Your Wedding Vows

Sponsored with love by Wedding Forward

Whether you're writing your own wedding vows or you're finding wedding vows you love on the world wide web, there's really no one vow fits all when it comes to weddings. Every couple is different. We all have different beliefs, different views on life, different words that move us, likes and dislikes and we all have one-of-a-kind marriages.

And your wedding vows should reflect that.

Back in 2013 when we were in the final stages of our wedding prep, it came time to write our wedding vows and there was no way I was going to write my own vows and read them out loud. No way you'd ever find me doing least back then. We were young and had only been to one other wedding so really, had no idea where we were even supposed to start when it came to writing our wedding vows and so, we started Googling.

We found vows we loved, words we found romantic and together, we took bits and pieces of vows we had read, added in our own personal beliefs about love, marriage and faith and created the most beautiful wedding vows for us.
