Whether you’ve already sat down and tried writing your vows a dozen times, or if you’re like me and have to research everything first, I’m going to give you some tips to make writing your elopement vows simple and, dare I say, fun!
Keeping that in mind can be really helpful when starting to write.
Grab your notebook + pen and let’s get started!
Try not to overthink it: your partner will love your vows no matter what!
This seems like an obvious place to start, but a lot of people overlook it. Take a step back and think about your relationship, your partner, and your journey together so far.
Think about the fun memories, adventures and challenges you two have shared.
After answering those questions above, you have a really great start to writing your elopement vows. Now, you just have to bring it all together! I highly recommend handwriting your vows instead of typing them, it just feels more personal if ya ask me. Bonus: a cute vow booklet like this or this can turn your vows into a keepsake.
If you’re someone (like me) who needs more clear structure, I recommend something along the lines of: Why I love you –> you make me feel –> I promise/our future .
I hope these prompts and tips help you with writing your own elopement vows! As long as you stay true to yourself, your partner will love them no matter what!
I offer hands-on assistance throughout the entire elopement planning process, and I’m here to help in any way I can (even helping you craft the perfect vows)! If you’re looking for an all-in-one elopement photographer and guide…
