Wedding Vows

Are you ladies going with the standard or are you writing your own?

FI and I decided to write our own but I have no idea "how" to do so...

    Yeah we are going to have our own, I guess we will come up with something to say by ourselves. He's a great writer, so it shouldn't be hard for him.

    ummm I don't think there is a length requirement. It's a special moment, so I think I would love him to have a  lengthy vow. I guess if it was like a 10 minute vow, then yeah that is long LOL.

    FH wants to write vows. He is an eloquent writer and will prob make me cry (and ruin up my makeup). I am the total opposite...which is why I think I will want to go first. LOL  I'm afraid I may get nervous and forget what I have to recite. So, I am going to read them from paper (and him to do the same) and after the ceremony have what we read matted and framed with our wedding pic or something like that.

    We decided to write our own.  I haven't even started thinking about mine, but I was pleasantly surprised and touched when I was on FI's computer and saw a Word doc called "Vows" on his desktop!!  And he ended up telling me at another time that he had already started writing them....this was probably last November!  

    You don't know how bad I wanted to sneak a peek when I saw that document on his laptop...but I somehow restrained myself!  Smile

    <div>Girl, it took everything in me to keep from looking!  But FI is soooo great at trusting me and not going in my stuff, I just couldn't do that to him.  This is actually the first man I have ever been in a relationship with that I completely trust so I don't look through any of his things, even when I'm at his house by myself!  Awww, I'm about to tear up thinking about it!  Sorry...went off on a tangent there!  </div>

    You know we talked about this a couple of days ago. You know what we decided? Just to wing it! Neither one of us are eloquent writers but we just want to say what's in our hearts. We agreed that if we start to go over then we can give a nudge or wink to let the other know!

    We are doing both... We are kind of traditionalists, but also wanted to say something that is very personalized. Our vows will DEFINITELY be under a minute though...

    BTW, Cincy, you almost made ME cry reading your post! Y'all are too cute :)
