To always try and see you.
That even if our bodies bend or our faces wrinkle,
I will see your true beauty; inside and out.

I want to hear what is in your heart and on your mind.
I will speak up when necessary,

But seriously, I will always have your back,
And will catch you should you stumble or fall.
I promise to support you wherever you may need it.
I may not be able to solve all of your problems, but I do want to hold your hand while you work through them.

I want to share in your hopes, your dreams, your loves and your fears.
What makes you so beautiful to me is the combination of all of those things.
(Partner’s Name), I love you.

Wondering where to start with writing your wedding vows?

We’ve got your back.

Our certified wedding specialists are sharing a few important tips to help you out.

1. Reflect on Your Relationship

Take time to reflect on your journey as a couple, including significant moments, and special shared experiences. Mention them in your vows.

2. Whisper Secrets

Our Wedding Specialist Pamela says, “I love it when, right in the middle of exchanging vows, the couple leans in close and shares a little secret with each other. It’s like they’ve got something just between them, not for anyone else, you know? Totally romantic!”

3. Don’t shy From Being Sentimental

No need to stress about being too corny or cheesy, it’s your wedding day afterall.

As long as your words are coming from the heart, they’re excellent.

Honestly, I’ve yet to hear vows that made me cringe; all of them are beautiful 🥲 

4. Take Inspo From Books & Movies

Got a favorite line from a movie or book that expresses your feelings? Use it!

5. Use Song Lyrics

Our Content Manager Sarah says, “It’s adorable when couples kick off with lyrics from ‘their song’. Take ‘Looks like we made it,’ for instance. It was so sweet when a couple started their vows the same way without even realizing it. Truly, great minds think alike!”

And most importantly, don’t listen to ‘experts’ who tell you to discuss the tone of the vows with your partner – we suggest keep it fun, and write it straight from your heart.
