Writing your own vows sounds so romantic, but then when you actually get down to it... it can be REALLY hard. How do you put all those emotions you feel for someone down into words? Words that you'll be reading in front of a lot of other people? It's your wedding day, one of the most important days of your love story, so you want your partner to know how amazing you feel about them and that can be a lot of pressure. But the good news is, it doesn't have to be! Using some of these tips, writing your own vows can be a little easier and a lot more genuine. At the end of the day, vows are a wonderful way to remind all of your wedding guests what exactly they're celebrating... the unique love that you and your partner have. And after all of your guests have cried a little, (maybe it's just me but isn't that the main goal? to make everyone cry?) they'll spend the rest of the evening dancing and toasting the night away in honor of the special love that you've been so lucky to find and the beautiful partnership that you have formed. Cause that's what it's all about right? Loving each other, having fun with each other, but also being teammates in this crazy game called life...Someone to have your back through thick and thin. To me atleast, there's nothing more romantic than that.

It's crazy how one random experience has impacted every facet of my life.
Meeting you was the start of my greatest adventure and it still feels surreal that it is
only just the beginning.
Someone once said it's good to be loved, but it is profound to be understood. You
have pushed me to be the vision of myself that I have always sought to be. You have
grounded me, while also setting me free. Your unwavering confidence in us, and in
our love has shown me that there is no greener grass, mostly because you’re a little
obsessed with the lawn. And while there are sure to be rough seas at times, I know
that we will always have our safe harbor in each other. But, above all this, is the most
amazing way you love me and the way I always know you’ll be there. And from this
day forward, it's cemented. No matter where the road takes us, and I’m sure there will be no shortage of road, I vow to always be your sous chef, your camping partner,
your hand with a wrench or piece of wood. I vow to be your anchor (as long as I’m
attached to an additional anchor) *rock climbing joke*, to wake you up every morning bright eyed and bushy tailed, to soothe you after long and stressful days with my bad jokes and the latest Netflix Documentary, to continue to push you higher, as you have pushed me higher, and to never cease falling more in love with you every single day.
