Your vows can be anything you want them to be but at a minimum, they should include two things. Can you guess what they are?!

Okay, I can’t wait, so here you go:

  1. Tell them you LOVE THEM. This sounds obvious but you’d be surprised how easy it is to get caught up in everything else and forget to say those three very important words!

  2. Make actual promises to them.

What Else to Include in Personalizing Your Vows

Okay! Now that you got those two important things in your wedding vows, there are other ideas you can include to make them even more personal.

Here’s a list:

The things you love about that person

Inside jokes

The story of how you met and how they made you feel.

The first memory you have with them.

The dreams you have for your life together

The moment you knew they were the one

The ways you will support them

You really want to personalize these that represent you and the commitment you want to make to your partner!
