23 Amazing Ways to Turn Wedding Vows into Art

Our topic for today: Vow art that wows. Immortalize your love by creating a vow art piece you’ll cherish forever!

Without a doubt, your wedding day is one of the most unforgettable days of your life.  Making a special promise to someone to let them know that you want to be bound to them for the rest of your life is a big occassion. What better way to remember this promise than by creating and displaying your very own wedding vow art.

It wasn’t always that way. Marriage customs of the past didn’t place as much importance on wedding vows. Things have changed, and modern wedding ceremonies place a great importance on vows.

My advice is to take the necessary time to create special vows. Don’t wait until the last minute. That way, you can turn them into a piece of artwork that you’ll be proud to showcase in your home or workspace.

Wedding Vow Art Ideas

Wedding vow art can be used as part of the ceremony itself, as a display, piece of attire, or as a keepsake. Here are some unique ideas we researched to turn your wedding vows into works of art.

  1. Wow! There are some FANTASTIC ideas here.

    Getting my vows right is a huge part of my vision for my wedding day and I am sure I am going to do one of these once I finally get them finalised.

    I was wondering, do you have any examples of real life wedding vows? I have been trawling blog posts like this one: http://farewellfiance.com/modern-wedding-vows/, however there is little out there on vows that were said at REAL weddings

    • Elsa,
      Thanks for the comment. I don’t have a resource for ‘vows said at REAL weddings’ either, but now you’ve given me a great idea for an article! I will try to put together something soon.
      Cheers
