VOWS

Hi ladies!Just wondering who wrote (or plans to write) their own unique vows vs. reciting the traditional vows?I'm soooo undecided on this. I think this is the best opportunity to show love and gratitude towards FI, but I'm just scared I won't be able to get through it through the tears (I cry at commercial ya'll).

    I have been wondering about this also.  I've decided to kind of do both.  We will do traditional vows, but I will add in a little section to the ceremony so that I can either recite a poem that I would love to use, or write something on my own.  I'm thinking that I won't tell him about it; instead it will be a small surprise.

    BTW...I'm afraid that if we write vows I will cry like a crazy person.  I am extremely emotional.

    I agree! I would love to write my own but there's no way I could get through it w/o crying either. FI (and my family agrees) that I prob wont make it down the aisle w/o passing out. SHAME ON THEM ALL! I have all intent on walking down the aisle on my own 2 feet! LOL

    It's just going to be an emotional day to begin with. Just the thought brings up a lump in my throat...We initially decided no, but I was reading the article here on TK about some of their favorite vows and then I just felt like it would be nice for us to do that for one another...Maybe I should just get him a card?? LOL!!

    I am writing my own vows. If you need help writing them page me and let me know.

    We're planning on writing our own vows as well, or at least incorporating some of our personal thoughts and feelings into the ceremony. I'm hoping I can make it through as well.
