      Hi there,

      You should make sure your photos are legal to use. They need to have a Creative Commons (for commercial use) or Public Domain license. And it's a good idea to add the link to the source, so it can be checked by the editors.

      Try to replace the word 'vows' with some variants. It appears 34 times, which is probably too often. Try 'pledges' or 'promises'. Don't have 'vows' in every subtitle.

      The piece of advice about having the vows on display so you don't forget your wedding day is a little odd. Does anyone forget the date they are getting married on? Or do you mean after the wedding? You should make it clear.

      Otherwise it looks okay. Quite a good article, I think.

      Oh... in your profile, you say that you are writing blogs. HubPages is not a blogging platform.

      Good luck.

        This is very helpful, thank you! I'm having trouble with the images. When I save the source it doesn't show up in the draft mode. I may contact them about this.

          Use a site like Pixabay, Pexels or Unsplash for legal images.

          Make sure you are putting the URL in the correct box in the image capsule.

        Thank you! Any ideas on how to do this if I created the graphic?

          Just put your own name in the source box. No need for a URL.

    I agree with what others have said. You have also used the word “blog” in the second sentence of the article. In the “Your Memorable Vows” section, you refer to a couple saying their vows with their whole village present. This seems a bit strange to me. Not everyone lives in a village. Even if they do, the entire village wouldn’t necessarily be invited to the wedding.

      I hadn't thought of that. That's really helpful. I can see how that word use may not translate well to everyone. I'll think about how to word that differently. Thanks again!

    I agree with the earlier comments. "Blog" is a no-no. HP calls them articles. The article seems a little short. You want at least 750 - 1000 words. I was thinking perhaps a sample vow from a wedding you officiated, or you could write your own as an example. You could write about real-life experiences when the vows were great, how it affected the wedding party.

    This is great. Thanks for your input!
