I bought these dollar passport notebooks and used calligraphy pen to draw these on. I also wrote our name and date on it (not shown).

We put the whole ceremony plus our vows on a Kindle Paperwhite. No problems with legibility, no pages to get blown away in the wind, no glare because it wasn’t a regular device screen, and still super portable.

We had ours written on small pieces of paper.  Very casual.  The officiant held them until it was time for us to read them, then she passed us the vows.  We loved the vows we wrote 🙂 Good luck!

We used colored index cards. I’m sure if you look on Etsy, though, someone will be more than happy to sell you a little notebook specifically for vows! wink

Small moleskine books, the ones with natural paper covers. Not glamorous really, but we just wanted a way of keeping the vows where they’d be more protected than on just a sheet of paper.

I used a plain ‘ol index card. Held in your hand the right way and no one will notice. Plus, notbody is really looking at the paper unless you have a full sheet of paper in your hand.

Bhldn had his and hers vow books. My hubby and I finished our vows and wrote them in fairly large print in the books. We pulled them out when it was time and were glad we used large writing because we were so nervous it would have been hard to read small writing!

There are great vow books on Etsy. We are older and dont see as well without glasses so we got an engraved wooden guest book (size was bigger so we couid print larger) and read from that. It is a beautiful keepsake. We used the same book so we only had one to keep track of.

My officiant will have our vows printed in her book that she creates for our wedding day. With the whole written ceremony and pages for our guests to sign later in the evening. She will pass them to us when it’s our turn (I think). 

A friend wrote her vows out on a string of long paper, like ticker tape almost, and moved her hands along to advance the words. She had it stored all rolled up so it was curly at the ends. It was cute.

We agreed all the wording with our celebrant and when it came to our vows we wanted, she read and we repeated.

We wrote ours on some patterened scrapbook paper. After the wedding I put them in frames with the pattern facing outward and the vows hidden. They match our decor so they hang in the hallway and usually get read on our anniversary.

I had a hot pink notepad that I’d been using for keeping wedding notes, he used computer paper. Neither item coordinated with anything. However, some of these ideas are beautiful! I especially love the calligraphy work from  monsterly :
