Went to a few weddings last year were the bride and groom had written vows to each other. Personalised vows are a beautiful way to communicate just how much you love your fiance.

I wanted to write a post giving you some tips on writing your own vows … but then I did a google search and saw that its a pretty popular topic and wasn’t sure I could bring anything new to the table. So, I read through a bunch of websites and these are the Top 5.
