It’s easy enough to save these vows by putting them in a photo album or in a box of other important papers, but it is just as easy for them to be forgotten there. More likely, they will get lost in the day-to-day shuffle, and it will be up to the two of you to remember the words.
Your wedding vows are important, though, and should be kept somewhere equally special. Your vows are the most heartfelt profession of your love you’ve likely ever spoken. They should continue to serve as a frequent reminder of the promises you made to each other. This white and gold heart-shaped lockbox is a beautiful way to save your vows. During your wedding, after you each say your vows, place the written vows inside the box and lock it.
During the reception, display this unique keepsake on the head table in front of you. After the wedding, the box can be displayed somewhere in your home, on a dresser or the mantel, for instance, and your vows of love will always be within easy reach.
The best thing about this lock box is that it stores and protects the emotions you felt about each other at one of the highest peaks of your relationship. These feelings deserve to be held on to and cherished. just as you hold on to and cherish each other. Every time you look at this box, you can be reminded of those emotions. Any time you are struggling or maybe have forgotten how your wedding day felt, all you have to do is unlock the box and read through your own words and relive some of the best moments of your relationship.
You could even make a tradition out of reading the vows together on your anniversary, and add new vows to them as your relationship grows and evolves.
If you have children at the time of your wedding, you could write a letter to them as well, a parental vow of sorts, and keep that in the heart-shaped box, for them to read when they’re older. Or, if they’re old enough at the time of the wedding, you could have them participate in the vow-writing so their own words can be included in the lock box along with their parents’.
This elegant vow box is an exquisite, romantic supplement to a wedding ceremony and to a bride and groom’s devotion to each other, and will keep the written vows alive and fresh far longer than a memory could.
