our officiant wanted a copy of our vows 2 weeks before the wedding, so we started roughly 3-4 weeks before the wedding..

I’m in 45 days-ish (June 24) so I’m wondering the same thing! I feel like I should be getting started now, but I keep procrastinating. I have a lot in my head, but haven’t quite gotten anything down on paper yet.

I was just a bridesmaid in a wedding and the bride was writing her vows the day before the wedding! 🙂 Both hers and the groom’s were short, succinct, and very emotional. Whatever works!

Wrote mine at 2am the morning of my wedding 😂 I had written bits and pieces, looked up vows, all that stuff for weeks beforehand, but nothing I came up with felt right. So I decided to wait until the night before when my emotions were at their peak, and it worked out for me. I would not advise anyone to do that though haha.

I’m in 4 months, and I did a rough draft. My FI? He’ll probably write them the week before! Kind of reflects our personalities, though, lol.

At 11 AM the day of the wedding. 

I write about 15,000 words a week, though, so I’m pretty good at letting inspiration carry me.

We wrote them months before the wedding and kept tweaking them until 2 weeks before when our officiant wanted them sent to him.

I’m a diary keeper so I’ve been brainstorming vows in my diary for awhile now, but I think I’ll probably start to really write them about a month out.

I started writing my vows a few days before the wedding and finished maybe 2 days before? Same for my husband I think. We are both procrastinators! 

We finished writing the ceremony 2 days before as well, and I remember we were frantically printing it off and gluing it into the leather journal we bought for the officiant the morning of the rehearsal. Our officiant was my husband’s brother so he didn’t care lol, as long as he had it in hand for the wedding.
