Writing your wedding vows can be an overwhelming task. Often, couples choose to write serious, sentimental vows to each other. But if that just doesn't sound right for you and your partner, consider writing funny wedding vows. Not only will they make your S.O. smile, they'll make your guests laugh out loud too. Of course, you'll want to make sure that it's tastefully done (remember: it's your wedding day, not a comedy show). The focus of the vows should be declaring your love for your partner, and making guests LOL should be an added bonus. And remember that you don't have to incorporate funny wedding vows into your ceremony if that isn't authentic to your and your partner. But if you're always joking around with each other, it might be appropriate to incorporate a humorous line or two.

If you're looking for inspiration, we've rounded up a few of our favorite funny wedding vow examples as well as humorous quotes from movies, television shows and books. Browse our curated selections and then add them into your own vows to get your guests giggling.
