Writing Your Own Vows


When it comes to your vows, there are lots of lovely words already out there, but nothing beats words that come straight from your own heart. Writing your own vows may sound  daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. They can be as long or as short, humorous or serious, whatever you want and however you feel.

Some of the questions that can help you get started are…

What do you love about your partner and why? In what ways have they enhanced your life?

When did you know that this was the person you knew you wanted to spend the rest of your life with?

What does marriage mean to you?

What are you dreams and aspirations as a couple?

What is your favourite memory of your partner?

What do you promise to your partner? (Loyalty, support, respect etc, or even to be the one to walk the dog and put the rubbish out!)

It’s really lovely if you can keep your vows a secret, so your partner hears your vows for the first time on your wedding day!

There is no right or wrong way of writing your vows, all you really have to do is keep it real!
