What are ninja vows?

Couples who opt for ninja vows write vows for each other that are kept secret, right until the moment they are read aloud at the ceremony.

Each person gets to write the vows for the other to read out on the spot! Yup, you won't see what your partner has written until you are holding them in your hand to read them out loud!

Ninja vows are all about surprises, so be prepared for anything!

Think vows that you write for each other rather than for yourself!

They are kept secret until the moment they are read at the ceremony resulting in a lot of fun, sometimes shock value, and a whole lot of laughs.

How to write your ninja vows?

To write your ninja vows, imagine what you would love to hear your partner say during the ceremony, but know they would never agree to.

Here is your chance to write the vows you know they will never agree to say!

Keep them light-hearted and fun!
