Vow Writing Template - Making personal wedding vow writing easy!
Updated: Feb 8
The good news is, your wedding vows are already done. You have them inside of you, they just need to written down. So, all you need to do is to pick one or two lines from each of the four sections below and finish the sentence in your own words:
Personalized Vows have four main sections: The past, the present, the future, and the promise.
(Name) I knew you were the one for me when you…
Before I met you, I thought being married would be…
On our first date we… and I felt….

I vow to remain loyal to you physically, emotionally and spiritually. And be by yourside as we grow old
(Name), I love you.
Done! Is this the only way to write your own vows? Absolutely not! You have a lot of freedom to make your vows your own, which can seem overwhelming. This is especially true if one partner is a great writer, and the other feels intimidated to match their level.
For those of us who like writing, you may not need this template, but for those of you don’t – you’re welcome!
I talk about this template with Australian Celebrant Pete on his podcast The Wedding Guide.
