Unique Display Ideas for Written Vows at the Wedding

Unfortunately, I don’t come across many weddings where the vows are actually on display during the ceremony or reception. Maybe it’s the writer and romantic in me but I think there’s just something so powerfully symbolic and beautiful in being literally surrounded by the words of your love and commitment on that day.

If you like this thought, here are some unique ways of incorporating these written words:

As a backdrop or on your aisle runner

In this styled shoot, vows are hand-written by Laura Hooper Calligraphy – can you imagine how amazing this would be for your wedding photos?

The couple in this wedding had portions of their vows written on mirrors which made for a stunning and touching display, especially in the soft glow of candlelight.

This was a literature inspired shoot which reflected a lot of creativity.  One idea I also loved was that the words of the vows were also transferred onto handkerchiefs using custom-made stamps. During the ceremony portion, the couple  read their vows from these handkerchiefs.

I love this! Wouldn’t it be neat if the wedding guests also wrote wishes for the couple and posed with their words too?

Written on your reception plates or made into heart-shaped confetti

There’s a tutorial on Ruffled for writing the vows or the first dance lyrics onto your reception plates. Unless the guest list was very small, or the words very few, I can’t imagine doing this myself – not without a lot of help or time- otherwise I would hire someone for that painstaking process!

There was an Etsy shop that used to sell heart-shaped confetti with the words of your vows- with a nice little heart punch this would make for another DIY to try out.

Hand-painted onto your wedding cake

This is really quite a charming design for your wedding cake. I’ve seen this executed using a raised icing but I think it looks much better brushed on.

The great thing about most of these ideas is that you then have a lovely keepsake for your future home!

    might check this? IE still is the market chief and a large portion of other people will leave out
    your wonderful writing because of this problem.

    read it afterward my links will too.
