I went with this general idea:

1) When I first met you…

2) I love that you love me. This is why

3) I love you because

4) I promise to…

Hope this helps!

It’s good to keep in mind Vows are your VOWS- aka promises you intent to keep upon becoming married. You’re supposed to say what you will do, which people forget. We’re writing our own vows and structured it like this:

  • a little “I love you because” intro, sappy stuff
  • then 5 “I will”s… (1 being cute/ funny, 4 serious)

This will help Fiance also as he’s nervous about how to set up the vows.

@lealorali:  This is so true. So many people forget that vows are supposed to be promises!
