Not all of us are gifted with the ability to write stunning, eloquent speeches on the first go. Some people need pointers, fill-in-the blank sheets and about a million rough drafts before getting it right. If you’re struggling to come up with the perfect things to say in your wedding vows, don’t worry, almost every bride and groom has been there. We’ve drafted a few questions to help you spur on the writing process. If you draw blanks or get some duplicate answers, don’t stress - just use what you can!
