Your wedding is one of the most important and meaningful days of your life. For many couples today, the meaning of this day is enhanced by writing their own wedding vows. Whether your wedding is interfaith, multicultural or in a single faith tradition, whether it's a first-time event or one that includes your children, you may have found a way to make your ceremony unique and special by creating the words that unite your lives.
Here's your chance to commemorate your original wedding vows on Beliefnet and share them with others seeking inspiration for their own weddings. Best of all, by entering the Wedding Vows contest, you can win an inspiring and practical book on spiritual growth in marriage.
