WHAT ARE NINJA VOWS?
Ninja vows are vows that you write FOR each other. You get to write the words that you want to hear from them!
You keep the vows secret from each other but send them to your celebrant. Your celebrant will print them and bring them along on your wedding day.
The first time you read your Ninja vows will be in front of your love and your guests in your ceremony.
OK, this may seem odd, but trust me when I say that everyone loves them, especially the two of you, and it's hilarious!
What's so good about Ninja vows?
They take the stress out of finding the perfect words to say and are a fun, unique way to spice up your ceremony.
They lead to hilarious and memorable moments for you and your guests and crank the fun factor up by 100%!
You can include the vows you'd like to hear and the cheeky promises you WISH they'd make.
Have I caught your interest? If so, read on!
HOW DO YOU NINJA YOUR VOWS?
You write each other’s vows and keep them secret from each other until you read them aloud during the ceremony. You each write the vows you would like your partner to say to you.
Yep, they will have no idea what you have written until the moment they are reading them aloud during the ceremony! Of course, you won't know what they have written till then either.
The result is fun, sometimes shock value, and heaps of laughs. Ninja vows are totally unpredictable, so be prepared.
THREE STEPS TO WRITING YOUR NINJA VOWS
1. Write what you would love to hear your partner say during your ceremony, but you know they would never agree to otherwise.
2. Keep them light-hearted and fun
3. Make sure you put at least one ‘I love you” in there.
