1. Allow your vow style to be a reflection of your couple style - Now isn't the time to try to create a whole new couples style. Let your guest see what it is that makes you so unique. So, if you love to laugh together feel free to add in a couple of funny lines.
2. Speak from your heart - This is the one moment that you have to tell your friends and family why you are marrying this special person. Express to your love all the things about them that makes your heart skip a beat. Wedding day is the perfect day to get a little mushy.

Start to jot down thoughts and feelings as you move throughout everyday life. Keep a small notepad with you at all times so that you capture your thoughts at any moment.
These are just a few tips to help you get started on your vow writing journey. Our most important tip - Have fun!
