We recently painted and redecorated our bedroom (vlog here), and the pièce de résistance is a pair of oversized framed wedding vows above our dresser. They were inexpensive and easy to make; check out the tutorial below for more!

Step 1: Format vows
Using Canva.com, a free online design tool, I created two posters using the custom dimensions of 24×36 inches. You can choose any color background or text and also a font you like. I wanted these posters to be very minimalistic in black and white and wanted the vintage touch of a typewriter font–this font is “Special Elite,” but you can choose whatever works for you!
Step 2: Order posters
I ordered my posters through Vistaprint in the 24×36 inch size. I chose the “Matte” paper option and used a coupon code to get 50% off! A few weeks later, my posters arrived in two cardboard tubes (pictured below).
Step 3: Purchase frames
I purchased my frames from IKEA (the Ribba 61×91 cm option), but there are lots of 24×36 frames on Amazon, at Michael’s, at Hobby Lobby, at Target, etc.
Step 4: Frame prints
The next step, of course, is to put your prints into your frames. I originally intended on keeping the mats in the frames, but ultimately removed them because I liked the aesthetic better.
Step 5: Hang your vows!
Once your prints are framed, you can hang them up! I love the way these look in our bedroom. (For a full bedroom tour, click here.)
How precious to have our wedding vows in plain view every day. I find myself reading through them as I get dressed in the morning–I love this reminder of our covenant and promises to each other.

What a great idea! They look amazing on your wall. Your vows are very sweet, too. I love how they both have very similar structure but are unique to each of you.

I love this! I framed the letters we wrote to each other on our wedding day and hung them above our bedside tables. Some day, I want to reprint them since my husband wrote them on a loose leaf piece of paper! haha Jessica

Love this idea! Looks cool and it’s sentimental too. Canva is so awesome, I use it all the time!

These are so beautiful! I love that you wake up to a reminder of what your marriage is all about every single morning. I would love to do this with our vows after our wedding next year. xx
