Alternative Wedding Vows or Readings: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Edition

I may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post. This helps me support my blog and my family at no extra cost to you.

Let me tell you, one of the hardest things about planning my own wedding was trying to write the wedding ceremony. I was not a fan of the traditional vows (I obey no one but myself thankyouverymuch) and really wanted to find something that reflected our concept of what we wanted our relationship to be. If you're in the same boat but looking for alternative vows – well, here ya go! Some wedding vows courtesy of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.!
