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. Origami Sculpture Parrot Wedding Vows
If you are into Japanese art, the above image needs no introduction – a hand-folded origami parrot. Made up of your wedding vows and printed on iridescent white paper, this unique papercraft piece of art is an absolutely precious idea! It comes with a handmade wood base to display the bird as well as a glass bell to keep the parrot tucked safely away.

What a perfect way to display a photo from the big day. Make it even more meaningful by surrounding it with a matte that displays your vows. After the wedding, this framed photo will remind you of your special promise to each other.

From gold foil, letterpress or print, turn a special poem from your wedding or your vows into a stylish and personal piece of art.

Another option is to have your vows handwritten and framed on their own, which you can then use during the wedding ceremony and read from your framed vows aloud. Display them afterwards at the wedding reception.
5. Wedding Vow Aisle Runner
Instead of walking down a traditional red carpet, why not use a unique vow aisle runner instead? Write your vows along the aisle runner for a dramatic entrance. After the ceremony, you can use your customized aisle runner as a stunning backdrop for wedding photos.
