Wedding Vows Outline

  1. Start out by talking about your relationship. How did you fall in love? What parts of your relationship are the most important to you and the parts that will build a strong marriage? How do you feel about entering marriage? This part should set the tone and theme for your vows and be only a few sentences.

  2. Talk about your partner. What do you love about the person you are about to marry? Why do you feel they will make a great partner for life? This part of your vows should incite emotion for you! It should make up about a third of your vows.

  3. Make your promises. Your vows are just that - promises to one another. So what promises do you need to make to your partner. For me, this meant promising to continue doing things that I know Logan is appreciative and to promise to be better about things I know he would appreciate. This is where we added a bit of humor into ours. This should be the bulk of your vows. For reference, Logan and I each made 5 promises to one another.

  4. “I love you.” This is your closing! Just a sentence or two closing out your vows to wrap it up nice and neat! Think of it as the bow on a gift!

Ya’ll. That is it! By following this super short outline, you and your significant other can easily write your own, personalized vows! Logan and I both hope this helps!
