DIY Wedding Vow Art

When we got married, it was really important to the both of us to say our own vows. We were so lucky that Bryan’s cousin was officiating because we have known people in the past struggle to deviate at all from traditional church ceremonies. Bryan’s cousin though was willing to have us to both the tradition vows and our own personal vows. It is the part of the ceremony that I remember most clearly. I find beauty in the traditions, but our vows were solely about our love and our relationship.

We both offered each other five promises. It is important to always remember these promises, so I decided it wouldn’t hurt to have a daily reminder and added them to the gallery wall I was making. I am so excited about how this turned out and am hoping to offer this art work to my Etsy shop when it is opened

I wanted the final piece to be white and navy; I also wanted the letters to be a bit distressed so I decided I wanted the final product all paint instead of just attaching the vinyl. So I painted the board white with a couple coats first, attached the vinyl, painted over them with the navy twice, and then took tweezers and picked off the vinyl letters. The board I used was a 20×20 wood canvas board.

    This is so cool! And a great, pretty way to to display your vows! I have our wedding vows displayed in our home too. We each wrote separate vows so they are, on the paper we read them from, in a shadow box with some flowers from our wedding day hanging on the wall in our bedroom! Love to see other people take their vows so seriously too! Sarah @

      Thanks, Sarah! It is such a nice reminder to see everyday. I love the shadow box idea and have thought about putting one together for all out wedding mementos.

      Thanks again for stopping by!
