If traditional wedding vows aren’t your thing, and you would rather write something that can express the love that you have for your future spouse, sometimes the task can be daunting. An eternal love, and one worth celebrating is worth the extra work if you want to put it in. Romantic wedding vows are quickly becoming more popular as couples choose different ways from the norm to pledge eternal love before family and friends. If you have a mental block, or just need some ideas to help get you started, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve put some work in and come out with my list of favorite romantic wedding vows.
