I don’t encourage writing your own vows unless you really have a deep desire to do so. Why? Because you already have enough stress to deal with in planning all the other elements of your wedding.

Still want to pen your own vows?  If so, then let’s get busy.  Below are 12 Tips For Writing Your Own Vows to help you discover your inner Wordsworth:
