Everything you need to know about wedding vows

Before we try to add in any humour, let’s start with the basics. What are wedding vows? When do you say them? How do you deliver them and, more importantly, how do you write them? As wedding vow experts, we’re happy to share everything you need to know about wedding vows. Start there and then proceed with the comedy!

Should we write our own vows?

Not sure if you should write your own vows or repeat ones that are already written, watch Officiant Shawn answer that question! While traditional vows can be right for some couples, we strongly encourage all couples to consider writing their own personal vows. Your vows are the promises you’re making for your marriage; they should be unique to your relationship and meaningful to you. You should spend time thinking about what you want your vows – and your marriage – to look like.

Can wedding vows be funny?

Yes, wedding vows are allowed to be funny. While wedding vows are serious promises, there’s no reason for them to be stiff or boring. If your relationship is one where you value humour, joke with each other and make each other laugh, why wouldn’t you want to bring that into your vows and marriage? A few personal jokes can show your partner how much you understand them and put all of your guests in a good mood.

But it’s easy to take funny vows too far. Remember, this isn’t a roast of your partner or a chance to practice your comedy set; this is your wedding. The goal of your vows is to convey to your partner how much they mean to you and what you want for your marriage together. The goal is not to get a laugh at the end of every sentence. You’ll also want to avoid any jokes that might be offensive, controversial or embarrassing to your partner. Like most things, less is more when it comes to funny vows.

You want to make sure your wedding vows match the overall tone of your wedding and the importance of this milestone in your relationship. Do this by keeping the purpose of vows in mind while writing. Don’t be afraid to add in a few inside jokes or funny lines but be sure to balance them with heartfelt sentiment and sincere promises.

If none of the funny vows above seem like a good fit for your relationship, that’s okay! You can always make up your own jokes or skip the funny vows altogether. We’ve found that most couples naturally add an inside joke or funny moment to their personal vows simply due to the fact that most couples enjoy making each other laugh and smile.
